Office Railway, on display at Amberley Museum ( LSA April 2008 ).
A unique railway, under the streets of London, carrying the mail at speed... Sadly the railway was mothballed in 2003 and no longer speeds the mail, but remnants of it can be discovered at various museums throughout the UK.
Mailrail.co.uk is an unofficial site, but packed with information and photos. Recommended...
And on Mike's Railway History pages you'll find an interesting article The Post Office Tube which details, the little known underground railway.
