London Underground Google Doodle

Today the Google doodle is celebrating the 150th anniversary of the London Underground.

The Doodle uses the famous map to spell the letters of its name.  According to The Independent, the lines and names of the stops are accurate to scale.

The Metropolitan Railway, as it’s known, opened on this day in 1863.  The first journey took place between Paddington and Farringdon.  At the time there were seven stations. Since then, 263 more stations have been added. Some 1.17 billion passenger rides took place across the system last year.
