Hi,

There's been a few train threads, so...
Below is a map on the London Underground, with my details included. I quite often take the bus, and occasionally the Underground - prefer the Underground, apart from the damn heat and stairs!



So, for those that live in cities (sorry ANC) let's see a picture of your metro/subway plan.

Regards

Kieron747

I just moved to The District this summer, and adore trains. Yesterday, I went on all of the 5 lines. It isn't that big, especallly when you have lived in Japan and spent lots of time in Tokyo (60 local/commuter lines) but it is good. Here is the map:



I live at Eastern market, on the Orange and Blue lines

Well Miami Metro is not a great one. It sucks unless you live right near the stations which I dont, but they are expanding it and adding a new street cars which will go near my house.

That is are metro which are subway type trains except as many know in Miami you cant go under the ground so everything is above ground of course.
Miami also has a monorail system called the people mover which does some loops around Downtown Miami.

But they are planning on expanding the Metrorail alot and it will actually be a pretty good system once the project is finished in who knows how many years.

New York City subway system. I don't take it very often (only when I'm in the city and have to go far from where I've been and it's too hot or cold or rainy, because, honestly, I'd rather walk!).

But it's the closest one to me!

SBY is far too small to have a metro system. I'm moving to ROC at the end of August for college, so that will have to do.

Rochester has no subway, but it does have a bus system. Here's a map. (PDF)

Speaking of the buses in Rochester, they seem to be wearing a US Airways livery. Here are some pics for comparison:

Keep in mind these are some far distances. There is also a plan to extend the red line all the way to Santa Monica as well as expanding into East LA.

I would love to see it happen, but with tar, especally around LACMA, I can't really see it happening. Also, cause LA is so incompitant, they have to go through Congress.

I've read that as well. Apparently the city can't decide whether to fill the holes with dirt or build a new subway, as the costs for each are about equal.

Unfortunately, the city can't do either as they just flushed away $40+ million on the fast ferry debacle.
