I really like it, the station are just awesome. Maybe they are all the same (well - almost) but still it makes an impression when you see them.
Washington Metro is probably the only one system, that uses concrete without any colors or ornaments that I really do appreciate. Coz concrete becomes really ugly over time. In this case it still looks very good and clean.

What disappointed me quite a bit was the darkness in the stations. In the pics it looks much brighter than in reality.
Sometimes when you sit on the train and arrive at a station you can't see wherever is it a stop in the tunnel or at the station. To make long story short: Metro Washington should invest in few more light bulbs.

My 77. metro system is: Pittsburgh

[IMG]http://i60.************/o6i3qg.jpg[/IMG]
It's a LRT rather than a real metro, but the downtown section is fully underground.
[IMG]http://i59.************/s4t2fd.jpg[/IMG]
What is really weird, they don't have one-ride tickets at all. You have to purchase 10-rides ticket at the vending machine. There still is the possibility to pay at the driver, but once in the station you wont find this information anyway.

I've only used the system once but I found that the gloomy stations added to the atmosphere of the system. I've often wondered if the low lighting is a way of making the system seem cooler (in a city that can get very hot) and also in promoting a calmer atmosphere - given that the garish lighting of some systems can promote a feeling of unease in some people.

My new metro system is:
78. Denver
plus the airport rail at DEN

Denver has actually just an LRT system with - as usual in States and Canada - downtown section with mix traffic and suburban part with fully segregated lines and no road crossings. The trains are maybe not the most modern ones, but the ride is pretty smooth and nice.

The first time I'm compiling such a list. Includes all forms of rail-based rapid transit.

- Boston (MBTA Subway)
- NYC (MTA Subway & NJ Transit Commuter Rail)
- Washington DC (Metro)
- Denver (RTD Light Rail)
- Portland (MAX Light Rail)
- San Francisco (BART & Cable Car)
- London (Underground)
- Paris (Metro)
- Barcelona (Tramvia & Metro)
- Milan (Trenord & Metro)
- Como (Funicular)
- Rome (Tram & Metro)
- Istanbul (Tram & Tunel)
- Tokyo (Monorail, Yurikamome, Subway & JR)
- Kyoto (Subway, Keihan, Kintetsu)
- Nagoya (Subway & Aonari)
- Hiroshima (Tram)
- Penang (Funicular)
- Kuala Lumpur (LRT)
- Singapore (MRT & LRT)
- Perth (Transperth Suburban Rail)
- Sydney (Monorail, Light Rail & City Rail)
- Christchurch (Tram)

Anyhow, I didn't have the opportunity to try systems in Seattle, Vancouver, Olomouc, Vienna (So sad, its Trams are so abundant), Munich, Mumbai (Ok, maybe this I'll give a miss) and Beijing.

If you look at the map - it seems like there is a nice system of rail transport in Istanbul,
however - when you use it you realize that it kinda sucks. There are several lines, that never cross
or - even in case they cross, the interchange is horrible. It looks like the most important part
- in the city center - was never built.

Funicular
[IMG]http://i59.************/2md8d4.jpg[/IMG]

[IMG]http://i62.************/25iujbn.jpg[/IMG]

Marmaray - the suburban railway that conects Europe and Asia
[IMG]http://i60.************/scg7j9.jpg[/IMG]

[IMG]http://i62.************/s28meo.jpg[/IMG]

Another annoying thing is the fact, that there are places/stations in different positions with the same name. I.e.: Aksaray is the terminus of metro line and a tram stop, but if you wish to interchange from one line to another, your tram stop will be not aksaray, as it might seem logicaly. Also Topkapi is a palace close to the railway station, and Topkapi is a metro station name far far in the western suburbs. Really confusing.

Well, if you got on or off at James Street, you would have travelled underground in a city - if only for a fairly short distance.
