London Underground: Classic, enjoyed it a lot.
Glasgow Subway: Quite odd, different and very enjoyable
Glasgow Suburban Rail: Fairly boring, not as good as the subway
Newcastle Metro: Nothing special really
Liverpool Merseyrail: Too young to remember
Manchester Metrolink: Only one underground station, but oh well
Toronto Subway: Fantastic service, but fairly bland

MADRID METRO
LONDON
PARIS
BERLIN
LISBON
PRAGUE
AMSTERDAM
SUTTGART
ISTAMBUL
BARCELONA
VALENCIA
BRUSSELS
BEIGIN
SHANGAI
SANTIAGO DE CHILE
BUENOS AIRES
BUDAPEST


In my opinion the best of Europe that I know is Madris because is a very big network and the town is not a big city like London o Paris. The Metro Madrid is clean and easy to use.

bitxofo,

Wow, that's an impressive list!

Have you been on both metro systems in Copenhagen (S-tog and Metro)?

Amsterdam, fortunately they have a great tram system

Antwerp (pre metro :-( )

Athens, back in 1992, so it must have changed a lot. But I did like it.

Brussels, nice system and trains, also in the premetro part; very 'urban'.

Charleroi... CharlerWHAT? premetro. Could be a nice system in future, but... not yet. City is too small.

Lille, when it used to be a 'revolutionary' system.

Milan, on an August weekend : good system (a bit underused in the weekend?) - and still growing.

Paris, just amazingly dense.

Rome : great city, but metro needs at least 1 extra line. Overcrowded. Stations need new look. Doesn't need to be 1st class modern architecture ; just a newer and cleaner look !

Wow, I hope you enjoyed!

The M-system is still fairly small. The airport line is opening in 2007 (I think), and the cityring has just been approved. Construction of the city tunnel in Malmö started this last spring as well.
