The engineers feel that they have practic
ally solved the problem of rapid transit in
cities by inaugurating a new underground
electric railroad system in London. The
cars run through tunnels of small diameter
lined with boiler plate. Access to the road
is had by means of elevators at the stations.
The tunnels are double , and although the
speed is great there is not much danger of
accident. The diameter of the big boiler
plate tubes is nearly filled by the cars , and
in fact the whole arrangement reminds one
of the pneumatic tubes that the engineers
have been telling us would come into gen
eral use for transporting pass'engers as well
as freight long distances at lightning speed.
