In an age when museums are closing around the country, against this trend there is a new home for the Postal Museum, which opens in mid-2017. An innovative and new visitor experience is the chance to ride on a section of the re-opened underground Mail Rail.
My interest in stamp collecting is no more – one on many boyhood passions not followed through to late adulthood. A passion for trains, of all kinds, has been retained. Riding on the, once secret, Mail Rail arouses my keen interest. I’ve already mentioned my desire to go to my dear wife – diary marker set for mid-2017. I’ll hope to be there on opening day, for the sheer fun and excitement.
The video below gives an indication of what visitors can expect.
