This Side of Brightness by Colum McCann

A bit gloomy, but interesting. It focuses on the actual construction of the NYC subway.

Neil Gaiman's Neverwhere is a good urban fantasy set partly in his well-imagined London Below.

Catlady beat me to it. The Taking of Pelham 123 is the obvious choice - a true classic of the genre.

Half of Murakami Haruki's Hard boiled wonderland & the end of the world has an underground setting. I'm not a Murakami fan, but i liked this one.

In the more figurative sense of "underground", there's Dostoevsky's Notes from the underground.

1 movie recent hobo cannibals in subway tunnels.
Better old short story with creatures living in natural tunnels breaking in big city subway tunnels to eat people.

Underground my thing but refer here to only subway tunnel stories.

One of the Sherlock Holmes stories involved a body being transported across London on the roof of a Metropolitan Railway train. I can't remember which story that was, but I could probably find it if anyone is interested.

I saw that. The body was found and they didn't know how it got there.

There was a movie with George C Scott and he was crazy and thought he was Sherlock Holmes and at the end he saw a big light coming from the tunnel and thought it was the evil Dr Moriarty but it was a train that ran over him.

I never had been so glad to see a train. Terrible movie.

That may have been the one where they found a trove of eyeballs.
