By Chris WhittingtonBBC Sport is celebrating the tube.
The iconic tube that runs from London to Manchester has been a mainstay of British life for more than a century.
It has been the symbol of the nation since the first passengers were able to board in 1858 and was the inspiration for a number of movies and television series including The Seven Year Itch, The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy and, most recently, The Lego Movie.
This year, the iconic tube is going on a 50th anniversary.
The new BBC1 series of The Lego Universe – starring the famous blue Lego set from the film – is celebrating its 50th birthday this year.BBC One will broadcast a special episode to mark the anniversary of the tube’s first appearance, which took place in 1908.
It’s a great opportunity to celebrate it and give it the treatment it deserves.
It was built by the British inventor James Watt in the 1870s.
It is one of the world’s most recognisable transport hubs, thanks to the distinctive red and white colours, which are used on the iconic yellow and blue tubes.
The first passengers to use it were Sir Arthur Conan Doyle and the writer Arthur Conan, who were travelling from Glasgow to London at the time.
They boarded the tube and travelled on to the London Eye, before travelling along the Thames to St Pancras.
They were the first to use a train.
It was the first in a line of rail services that followed.
In the late 1880s, the station was named after James Watt, who died in 1915.
It had a central reservation for the first time in the world, and it was the scene of many memorable scenes in cinema, such as the train robbery at the Tower of London in 1885 and the Battle of Waterloo in 1806.
The tube was built with a new design and the lines were longer, and there was more space for the train to move.
It became known as the “Tube of London” after its opening in 1888.
The London Eye was the most popular attraction in the city and the train station was the hub for passengers on their way to and from work.
It helped that the station had a large number of escalators that enabled them to travel more quickly.
People also travelled by foot.
They used the escalators to get to and through the station, and many of the station’s buildings had stairs that led to the platforms.
The Tube of London opened on the opening day of the Great Exhibition in 1889.
It served passengers from London, the west coast, and beyond for the next four decades, providing a safe and comfortable way to get around the capital.
But, in the mid-1990s, it began to deteriorate and the tube was shut down.
In 2003, a huge new extension was built, with an additional two-and-a-half-mile track.
The Great Fire of 2003 destroyed much of the Tube of England.
But the Tube was revived with a series of refurbished stations, stations and lines to help keep the station running.
And today, it’s the busiest tube station in the UK.
In 2017, the Great Britain’s Transport Secretary announced that the Tube would be opened again in 2019.
This new service will be the largest ever to be run on a tube, and will bring an unprecedented number of passengers, many of them from overseas.
Its opening day is set for September 25.
