The Tube is a colloquial name for the London Underground, London's metro system. The underground railway has been described as the tube since 1890 when the first electric railway line running through deep-level tunnels was opened. Specific lines also have their own nicknames; the most widely used is the Waterloo and City Line's "The Drain".
