In 1863, a steam engine made the first run of a new era as the very first subway train chugged beneath London's streets. Nearly a century and a half later, the "Tube" is an internationally recognized symbol of the British capitol, and one of the most extensive subway systems in the world.
MODERN MARVELS® tells the complete story of the 243-mile-long subterranean network that keeps London moving. Engineers lead a tour of the inner workings of the Tube, and show the chambers and tunnels where its past lives on today. Historians trace the developments that transformed the first subway into the extensive network that it is today, and we'll get a peek at the brand-new Jubilee line, the fully-automated model for the future of public transportation.
This is the definitive look at the vast system that carries nearly a billion people every year.
