Your alarm goes. It’s the morning and it’s time for you to get ready for work. As you sip your morning coffee, you ponder the kind of day you’re going to have. It will probably be dull or maybe even a little bit stressful. But if you live in a metropolis, then you know that all of your expectations can be proven wrong during your commute on the train, which you probably ride on a daily basis.
We can thank the United Kingdom for the invention of the underground railway. It was first opened in 1863 with more than 30,000 passengers riding the railway — or what is known today as the tube — for the very first time. The incredibly useful invention was later named “the great engineering triumph of the day” by the Times. It revolutionized transportation for the British. Ever since, passengers have seen so many weird actions, strange, and wonderful, beautiful things.
