    That would be :cool: the guy said it hasnt run at all for at least 2 years and that was for a documentary. :(

    They are trying to find new things to do with the line. One of which might be using it to cool down the Tube (they run very close in some places).

    It was fucking criminal that they switched this service to the roads - just like the equally stupid decision to stop mail trains to save a few pennies.

    Is this the one that people got into after that massive Halloween rave at the end of Oxford Street?

    I went to a quiz at Mount Pleasant one night. I was hoping to see a postal sorting machine or the underground railway but instead it was just a conference centre called the Phoenix, not dissimilar to Phoenix Nights.

    Anyone seen that organisation called subterranea britannica that organise trips to stuff underground?

    This thread was started in 2006, so if they do get it open in 2019, we're closer to that date than we are to the date the thread started. :D

    StoneRoad RIP Greebo being kinder heckling from the back!

    I was wondering how they were getting on with this ... "Mail Rail" ... I've seen one or two items of the original rolling stock, and the concept is/was most interesting.

    I have just received an email stating more tickets released if anyone is interested.
    I've managed to book for 2 weeks time :thumbs:
    Postal Museum was certainly worth a visit in it's previous location; hopefully it is better in it's new location.
    Staff were brillaint, knowledgable and friendly. :thumbs:
