As you’ll now be well aware, the tube reached the grand old age of 150 this year, and to mark this momentous year the Institute of Civil Engineers have released a short film, ‘Engineering the London Underground’. The film documents the history of the tube, highlighting the important role that civil engineers play in its growth and development. From its reconstruction after the Second World War to the introduction of the world’s first computer controlled railway, the film shows just how revolutionary the tube really is.
