The London Post Office Railway — commonly called “Mail Rail” — is an automatic electric railway for Royal Mail deliveries in London, built at the beginning of the 20th century.
Inspired by the Chicago Tunnel Company, it operated from 1927 until 2003, and was completely driverless.
The line ran from Paddington Head District Sorting Office in the west to the Eastern Head District Sorting Office at Whitechapel in the east. Within this 6.5 miles (10.5 km) distance, the Mail rail has eight stations. Only only three of them were still in service by 2003, the others were abandoned because the sorting offices above the other stations had been relocated.
The biggest station was of course Mount Pleasant.
Now, a stock car lies in the Railway Museum…
