I wonder what it was like for the small team left to keep everything ticking over when the place shut down, never knowing if it would ever be used again. I bet when they used it in Hudson Hawke it was a real shot in the arm for them.
I believe they said all the loco’s were over 80 years old and still run well.
They were built to last then.
I saw this proposal on the news a couple of days ago and thought at the time what a great idea it was, I believe they said all the loco’s were over 80 years old and still run well.
I don’t think it would be something I would be interested in doing though….
This sounds great. It might even encourage me to go back to London for a holiday!!
Deep under the streets of the capital, a disused railway tunnel stretches for six miles. After being shut for a decade, there are now plans to reopen the London Post Office Railway – known to many as Mail Rail – as a tourist ride.
I’d like to have a go on that if it opens, would you
