to be honest, Tokyo is the only good one and maybe HK.

The others are just long. New York is Dirty and Old, not modern.

Best Rail System

small system
Hong kong(80heavy rail, 50lightrail, 50tram): its modern, clean and comfortable but most important of all it is sustainable, it works very well for the city its size and it works well with its other transport mode when its combine with its density ... it is one of the least car dependent city in the world(lowest cars/ 1000inhabitants in the world)

Large system
Tokyo(600stations in immediate area, around 2000 in kanto): ultra complex system with close to 2000 stations(all-rail) in the kanto area(one province) that are clean, modern and comfortable ... whats most impressive for this system is ... it works for the entire country ... every city, town are centres around station node ... no matter big or small ... plus the system aged quite well

Other great transport systems:
Singapore, London, Taipei, Kansai(osaka-kobe-kyoto), Seoul, Amsterdam

Of course Tokyo.
It's the largest metro system in the world.
It's modern, new, clean, punctual, comfort,save......
And I wonder why Hong Kong is in the list.
