The 150 great things about the Underground website wishes to (unofficially) celebrate 150 years of subway service from one of the oldest transit systems in the world.

On 10 January 2013, the London Underground will be 150 years old. This blog is a personal catalogue, in no particular order, of some of the network's finest features, sensations and oddities. Think of it as a well-meaning doff of a roundel-sized hat - one, mind you, that has nothing to do with Transport for London or the office of the Mayor of London.
