Is Mail Rail unsafe?

We’re shutting Mail Rail as a precaution while we resolve this. As far as we are aware the issue does not affect the safety of our visitors.

Why is the Mail Rail Exhibition closed on 5 September?

As far as we are aware this was an isolated technical fault, but requires our train contractor to assess and confirm they are happy for us to reopen.
