Abandoned underground ‘Mail Rail’

I recently discovered that the Royal Mail have an underground Rail Mail system beneath the streets of London, a fact im sure many people had no idea existed.  It launched in 1927 and was used to transport tonnes of post from one side of London to another, with stops at large railway hubs such as Liverpool Street and Paddington Station. After closing in 2003 it has remained unused but there are plans in place to turn it into a public attraction as part of the National Postal Museum.

My thoughts are concerned with the hidden and concealed nature of this transportation network beneath London and providing access and a means of secret circulation for the operatives.
