City and South London Railway

Group  From 4/11/1890 

Categories: Transport

The world's first underground electric railway, the world's first deep tunnel railway, and the first purpose-built railway tunnel under the Thames.

Opened in 1863 the Metropolitan line was actually the world's first underground passenger railway but it was built with the cut-and-cover technique rather than by tunnelling, and the trains were powered by steam rather than clean electricity.
