    Interesting story about the London Underground abandoned 'Mail Rail' possibly being re-opened as a tourist attraction:http://arstechnica.com/business/201...l-rail/#p3

    Why am I posting about it here? Well, have a look at the second picture in the article and tell me that doesn't look mighty familiar...

    Oh! They changed the article since I looked at it, took away the picture.  Here's the original Wired article with gallery:http://www.wired.co.uk/news/archive.../mail-rail

    Those boxes J.B is sitting on are probably the new 1st class stamps that nobody can afford to buy now......

    Yes it had changed and yes I now see what you mean.

    no those boxes are most likely all the amazon orders that have gone astray to my address over the years

    Its a real pitty that image is screwed up. I'm sure I have a complete one someplace on one of my hard drives?

    Found a non-corrupted version. If you refresh the page you should pick up the fixed version.
