@SkyscraperJunky, thanks for the Hudson, Jersey photo's. They were really facinating. I like the lift option. There are quite a few of those in European cities, but this is the first one I have seen in the U.S.

i like the french tram (and bus) maps really very much, it's because they are always drawn on city maps, so one always know where the tram (or bus) is going to.

Another map of Milan tram (and trolleybuses) network



I add the two still working suburban tram lines (inverting the tendence which since the '50s "destroyed" Milan suburban tram lines, now they make a requalification of the two "survivors" and wanted to open other ones)



http://digilander.libero.it/CentralStation/maps.htm


Milan tram network extension is 259.1 km of urban network plus 25 km of suburban lines;
Total extension: 284.1 km

according to Atm - Milan transportation authority - official website http://www.atm-mi.it/ATM/eng/Azienda/ATM_cifre.htm

Anytime! I always happy to post photo's to show everyone that NJ isn't the big stereotype everyone makes it out to be. Yes, the New Jersey/Hudson River coastline was formed much the same way as a lot of other European river coasts - those glaciers will do it everytime. Without those elevators, the light rail's efficiency would suffer.

Hypernovean posted maps of Melbourne's tram network in posting #13, but since I am going to post some photos, for the sake of completeness, here they are again:



The Tram Terminus at Melbourne University:



"W" Class tram, now operating on the free tourist "City Circle": the one behind it has more traditional livery.

These comprised the Melbourne tramstock 1920-1970 or so. Some of them were sold to Seattle; others to various landholders here who used them as cattle-barns or bungalows in their paddocks. They bought them cheap: they're heritage listed now.



Trams were traditionally green & yellow in Melbourne: these "Z Class" trams at Albert Park Beach have just become "M-Trams" after the privatisation of the system ...



Trams have been used to every purpose in this city ... turned into restaraunts and theatres ... this "A" class tram has been painted purple and green, to adverise IPod. Notably, at one stage every artist of renown here had painted their own tram, and, just recently, we had a tram decorated up as a Pakistanii bus .. with music and dancing inside (sorry, no photos!)



A "B" Class (the first of our articulated vehicles) tram behaving normally:



3000 series tram ...



5000 series tram ...



The centre of Melbourne:

Berlin has got the oldest tram network in the world because it has invented the tram!

Number of tram lines: 22
Track length: 187,7 km
Full length: 431 km

171 Million people were carried in the year 2005
Every day 560 000 people were carried with the tram!

Stations: 789
Trams: about 600


Historical trams:






Today´s trams:







Maps:




This map shows how the S and U-bahn network should look like in the future but the tram network does exist exactly as it is in the map so just look how dense it is in the east!





Maybe this tram(future):



Or this one:
