Most of the track and all stations are shared with either the District, Circle or Metropolitan lines, the other parts of London Underground's sub-surface railway, and over 114 million passenger journeys are made each year on the Hammersmith & City and Circle lines.In 1863, the Metropolitan Railway began the world's first underground railway service between Paddington and Farringdon with wooden carriages and steam locomotives.
The Hammersmith & City route was shown on the Tube map as part of the Metropolitan line until 1990, since when it has appeared as a separate line.
The following year, a railway west from Paddington to Hammersmith was opened and this soon became operated and owned jointly by the Metropolitan and Great Western Railway companies.
The line was then extended to the east, in stages, reaching the East London Railway in 1884.
