Most people get that wrong actually. Only those who know extensive information on this city's transit history will truly know that sort of information.

Well I guess that takes me back to my original point that the initial comparison is somewhat meaningless. Whether they are lines, services or whatever... still, you'd think that whomever put that comparative chart together would have done their homework a wee bit better.

Probably to create an unnecessary pissing contest between cities. One only has to look at the 'who has the biggest metro?' debates to see how silly the whole thing can become.

Interesting new names for Bakerloo extension stations.

For the willy waving fans, here's a New Yorker's perspective about how great London's transport is compared to New York's:

http://www.businessinsider.com/londo...-subway-2017-8

Full of subjective stuff and luck - the guy clearly didn't travel to places on branches and/or was very lucky in timing as he never had to wait more than 4 minutes for a train.

It is pretty good these days. Trains are pretty clean and fresh, even the clapped out Bakerloo line ones. Service reliability isn't too bad. Even the unions at least don't get violent unlike some in America.

No. If someone does not know something, then they must be educated. Not continue to spout misinformation.

It does matter. As I said before, in NYC, lines are physical parts. Services are flexible and change through the day for various reasons. Now if they were all self contained, then yeah, they would be the same. But they aren't.

Just because you don't care doesn't mean someone else wont.

Amy began tunnelling in May, following sister machine Helen the previous month. Helen broke through into a shaft at Kennington Park at the end of October. Both TBMs had been supplied by NFM Technologies from its Le Creusot factory in France

Shame it wasn't done in the new design idiom. But a very welcome upgrade.
