How long do subways last?

    According to, the oldest section of the London Underground still in use opened in 1863.

    That’s 149 years, think they recovered their investment yet?

    Well, maybe they did, but many subway lines are heavily subsidized by governments, so there’s no reason for them ever to close, except when funding is withdrawn. The amount of subway that is closed due to physical collapse is vanishingly small — just dig through the rubble, shore up the walls and ceiling, lay down more track.
