An Underground Celebration

By Linda Tancs

London’s famed Underground–the Tube–is celebrating 150 years of service this month.  The oldest of all underground systems, it comprises 250 miles of track, circuiting the capital both overground and underground.  Its 426 escalators perform the equivalent of two trips around the world every week, and the miles traveled per year add up to 90 return trips to the moon.  On that note, we love you to the moon and back–and happy anniversary!
