Who would have known that the London Underground route had the Google Logo in it, after all the London Underground have started more than 150 years ago. In fact the London Underground started operating today 150 years ago on the 10th of January 1863 and Google selected the “London Underground” today January 8, 2013 to be featured in Google United Kingdom on their homepage in the form of a Google Doodle.

London Underground

We visited the London Underground in 2009 and it was quite an experience to see the “London Underground” and they way that it functions. The words “Mind you Step” is synonymous with the “London Underground” and if you ever use the railway system you will know what we are talking about.

The London Underground is 402 Kilometers long and have 270 stations where you can get on or off from the trains. It is the 3rd largest underground Metro Railway Subway in the world in terms of route kilometers only beaten by the Beijing Subway system in China and the Shanghai Subway.

About the London Underground Google Doodle

Here at 3D Car Shows we think it was a brilliant idea by Google to celebrate the London Underground system today. The only critic that we have is that the London Underground is an international beacon and should have been an international Google Doodle and not one that is only available in the United Kingdom. We also love the way in which Google incorporated the London Underground map into their logo and making it part of the doodle.
