Each is driven by its separate motor, and starting and stopping are by push-button control from the tube railway platforms, while a duplicate control system is situated at a convenient point at the head of the conveyers, this representing another characteristic example of duplication of equipment, all of which is incidentally of British manufacture.
The Post Office Tube has been described as being "perhaps the best example of a robot railway in the world," but the description requires qualification.

After completing their routes, carriers return to the post office with mail gathered from street collection boxes, homes, and businesses and turn in the mail, receipts, and money collected during the day.
Many sorters, processors, and machine operators work at night or on weekends, because most large post offices process mail around the clock, and the largest volume of mail is sorted during the evening and night shifts.
