Happy 150th London Underground

The world's oldest subway system is 150 today.  And despite it being immensly overcrowded at times (and expensive) it still takes millions of Londoners in and out of the capital every day pretty efficiently.

The Underground's Harry Beck, of course responsible for the iconic and much copied tube map.  This one is of the galaxy with each stop representing 1,000 light years.  More at the excellent London List alternative tube map site
