Beneath the streets of London, Paris, New York, and other cities lie massive, underground worlds of tunnels and trains, transporting millions of people. Hop on! Undergound railways, or subways, are an engineering marvel. Grab your token! Neil Waldman's realistic illustrations compliment this amazing story and bring to life the early days when subways had been very first imagined and constructed. But why were they built? And how? The train is ready to leave the station. Follow Larry Dane Brimner's high-speed tour of the early subways, from London, where Marc Isambard Brunel solved the issue of tunneling by watching a shipworm at work, to New York City, where Alfred Ely Beach built a secret subway below Broadway. Imagine city streets packed with horse-drawn stages, carriages, wagons, and trolleys --and males and women.
