I like best underground mining or caches of treasure like dwarfs in Tolkien.

afterwards I like exploring or climbing underground.

do not like underwater during underground -- most dangerous and scary.
I do not do that!

Metro 2033 takes place almost exclusively in Russian subway tunnels if you're into a post-apocalyptic scifi book. It wasn't my favourite book, but the setting was compelling.

I admit I must have missed that one.
I will check it out.

That's a book and a game?

The game was based on the Russian scifi novel of the same name.

I skimmed maybe 30 - 40 pages. Is interesting, like you say, with the infrastructure and the environment. Probably more later about the surface.
On the other hand, I would consider Dmitrys writing weak so far.

I have seen action. A lot,a long time ago, it seems now, but still quite memorable.

Still some of the movies I have seen where they are underwater and their gear gets hung up in this tiny little cave and they can't go back or forward makes me squirm in my seat.
In another movie, these girls were lost down in a cavern though not underwater and squeezing through tiny holes and the mutated denizens of the caves who were blind were pulling at their feet.

That would give me nightmares. DAYmares!

sometimes hire people to dive submerged mines and tunnels and equipment when flooded
brave crazy men but pay very good
drink a lot but test before dive
drug test every day or two
carelessness kills, safety first

flooded mine dangerous
soil soft, things shift, drift
visibility sometimes nothing

I got out to about 145 pages but then I could predict what was going to happen (over and over) and it was starting to make my mind mushy so I put it down. On that pile of "a waste of further time." Maybe forever.

Still, I liked some of the ideas.

At sea, we have similar situations. People trapped under water. Sometimes alive sometimes dead. Divers have to check to see which and then act.

I have heard the stories. Pretty scary.

I've never read Murder on the Orient Express, but it should fit the bill!

As I recall, A Coffin for Demetrius has a suspenseful chapter set on a train.

The Terrible Hours by Peter Maas is a terrific account of a real-life submarine rescue.
