Underground automated goods transportation system?

2 posts in this topic

Low-tech Magazine has an interesting article up about underground automated transportation systems for consumer goods in Europe. It's been done before and obviously never caught on since we don't hear much about it today, but it is an interesting concept if someone were to get it right.

It's an interesting alternative to shipping items using the congested roadways, conventional train systems, etc. I honestly don't think this type of shipping system will ever catch on, but I'm curious what everyone's thoughts are on this type of system.
