Steam tribute for tube anniversary

A 19th Century steam train took passengers on the London Underground today to mark the 150th anniversary of the first Tube journey in the capital.

Specially invited passengers moved off from Kensington Olympia Tube station in west London aboard a train pulled by Met Locomotive 1, which was built in 1898.
