London has everything. Great trains (unique to London), great history, you can even get the cutting edge by using the Jubilee extension. But I love the trains.....no other underground train can beat its "cool" factor.

Hong Kong comes a close second for being profitable and efficient, pioneering train moderinzation and platform safety, etc. It receives 2.5 million passengers a day on a very small network compared to London, Paris, NYC, etc.

Anyone know about the operating profit/loss in Japanese railways?

Here is a very interesting and unique accessory on the Seoul metro. Gas masks! I believe it's a legacy item from the more tense moments in history when the threat of a North Korean attack on the subway system was feared.

Tokyo had an actual gas attack, but not North Korea-related. The North Koreans fired a missile over them instead.

Anyway, Tokyo's gas attack was planned by a religious cult and the leader already has been arrested and was given capital punishment.

Back to those gas masks. I have never seen that type of feature on any other system that I've been on. Seoul is definitely unique in having these cabinets.

It's a good thing that Seoul is prepared for this but interesting enough that western cities don't have this kind of preparation. Especially in cities that are main targets of terrorism.

Even in Seoul there are not enough masks in that cabinet to satisfy a whole train full of passengers. It's more a psychological tool to reassure users. It is impossible to make a whole system terrorism-proof. It's like forcing everyone to go through an X-ray scan when they enter the station. That's just not feasible.

Well a CCTV is still one of the best security.

When it comes to subway, I find HK's better than Tokyo's though Tokyo has a larger system than HK.

Tokyo's subway system is definitely large because of the city's massive urban sprawl.

Whilst some maps for some cities only show the "metro" or "subway", other's show more.

i.e. The Frankfurt and Munich maps also show the S-bahn, which is a suburban railway similar to the RER in principle. and the Sydney map is of a commuter/suburban system not a metro or subway system.
