Tokyo Rail system, Subway and Trains are great!

Just like the maps, their great (right click, save image as.. ofcourse).
But, these two gif's are just too big to compare.

roughly 200km long and 200km wide, but not that accurate.
The center and the end are far differently shown in scale.

BTW: silly thing (nice nick...): did you make those maps? Great work - it must've cost you some time!
I see the Chuo line has been included as well...has any date been set when this maglev-line should be operational?

Tokyo's railway system is anyway modelled after London. The British, American and German engineers heavily involved to push Japan to become the developed nation.

Is it now? I always thought that most of the railways in the greater Tokyo area were already built before the Second World War...?

Wow, is this an official map? It looks very similar to London's Underground maps!

There are a lot of railway companies in Tokyo, so no map that covers the whole Tokyo railway network is official.
This map was made by FML, imitated the tube map. Some other maps are also available on http://www.mukiryoku.com/railmap.html.

I think he meant he double posted...

Although commenting on the metro, the system is probably more expansive than normal bus systems in places like LA!

This map includes all rail services in the greater Tokyo Area. I believe that only a fraction of it is underground; the rest is all above-ground, just like 'normal' train lines. The only difference with suburban railway systems elsewhere in the world, is that Tokyo's is extremely dense. The amount of 20 million (!!!) people using these lines every day is just stupefying...
