Converted underground structures

I was looking at pictures of the construction of Vienna's new central railway station (see: http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showthread.php?t=238889) when I stumbled upon the picture below. The construction site used to be the site of two railway stations. While most of these old stations was demolished, a few artifacts remain, such als the "Steudeltunnel", a former railway tunnel. Now it seems that the tunnel is used to build a sewer or water drainage inside.

I wondered about similar underground structures around the world that were converted into something different.

A very famous example is the London Thames Tunnel, which was a pedestrian tunnel and today forms a part of the East London Line: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thames_Tunnel

Another example is Vienna's U4 club. It was built into an abandoned part of U4 Meidling Hauptstra▀e metro station.
