LONDON, ENGLAND - JANUARY 09: A passenger walks down stairs to board a train at Baker Street Underground Station on January 9, 2013 in London, England. Baker Street Station shares the 150th Anniversary of its opening on January 10th, 2013 with the London Underground. Commonly called the Tube, the London Underground is the oldest of its kind in the world and now carries approximately a quarter of a million people around its network of 249 miles of track every day. Baker Street station was remodeled between 1911-13 by architect Charles W Clark to its present form as part of a comprehensive rebuilding project by the Metropolitan Railways with the station as its new company headquarters and flagship station, where it quickly became known as the ‘Gateway to Metro - Land’. Outside the Marylebone Road exit, a large statue commemorates Sherlock Holmes, Sir Arthur Conan Doyles ficticious detective who resided in the novels at 221B Baker Street.
