    Evening All,

    I paid a visit to the recently opened Postal Museum in London last year and have now put some pictures on Flickr. If anyone would like to have a look, this is the first one in the Photostream:

    Alternatively, they can be seen in this album:

    Hope they're of interest. I can certainly recommend a visit if in or visiting London.

    Saw one of those post buses on Dartmoor back I the 80s while me and my kids were decending Haytor, my kids thought it was the Dartmoor tour bus, looking at the bus it seemed to have more people on it than sacks of mail. It was a much relied on service from what we heard.

    They've gone the way of so many bus services outside large towns and cities. We still have a bus, but I wouldn't call it a service...
