Postfix has received the message and is trying to deliver it via the
local transport which is good.

but Postfix can't find the local transport or more likely there is a
stale lock on the transport left over from before the crash, so Postfix
tries to queue the message for retry.

but it can't access the retry transport either ...

Because this isn't a Mailman problem. It's a Postfix problem. I don't
know enough Postfix to point directly at a solution, but I doubt that
Postfix can deliver any mail via the local transport.
