Congratulations to The London Underground on reaching 160 years old yesterday.  It really is the only fast way to get around the Metropolis.  The world's first underground railway, The Metropolitan Railway, opened in 1863, and ran between Paddington and Farringdon with six intermediate stations.  Only today I was travelling on the Bakerloo Line, the first part of which was opened in 1906.  It uses the oldest trains currently in use in Britain (built 1972).  I believe that the line runs in some of the deepest tunnels on the Underground system, evidenced by the fact that you have to ride upwards on two escalators to get to the surface.

And no thread would be complete without a picture...

Nice one, Terry.

I should add a pic or two of my models to celebrate as well.
