Scaling the tube

Various mass transit systems, all mapped to the same scale.

The Tube is quite big, after all...

Wow - I like that. All we need now it a t-shirt of it

Very cool - and looks suspiciously like some form of nervepath diagram ... I wonder if the tube layout was in fact the plan for a steampunk neural network which never got any further ...

Yes, and RER for Paris likewise.

My point too. The RER is as much a part of the RATP network as the 14 metro lines.

I suddenly feel a lot better about my SimCity tube runs!

Amazing how they all seem to have their own characters: London, a rather bloated caterpillar running off to the right; Tokyo, a Portuguese Man-o-War floating near the surface of the sea; Boston, dancing, her hair streaming behind; Montreal, tripping in the midst of her dance; San Francisco, a l***e (can't get them out of my mind!).

And the tube used to be even bigger; went all the way out to Aylesbury at one time.

I emailed the guy who made this the other day, as he really blew it for San Francisco. He included the MUNI, which is more of a streetcar system, while leaving out BART, which is a larger true subway system.
