Oh, I knew that all along. It's a pity the threads make Chicago's rail network look bad, when it really isn't. I loved the place, even with 20 inches of snow, save for how people didn't let me put ketchup on hot dogs.

@hydrogen
I already said Tokyo is without a sweat the "commuter" rail capital of the world!
Is that so hard for you to grasp the concept?
I am only posting the Chicago commuter rails to show on this thread. Is that so hard to face?
You are very welcome to post some of the most mind boggling images of tokyo commuter rails or maps or whatever that is related to commuter rail, I really love to check them out!
Particular from Paris, London and Moscow!

Hey Jue, just exactly is that you mean by saying, "It's a pity the threads make Chicago's rail network look bad, when it really isn't."?
Making chicago rail network look bad by showing maps and pics in which, you wouldn't even have a chance to ride them yourself? Please, I am really flatter at your comment!

Why would it be considering I cited statistics proving that Tokyo is the commuter king of the world? And considering that you posted CTA maps, I'm inclined to believe that you don't even know what commuter rail even is.

I've been here long enough to know that you start threads as a pretext to flaunt Chicago. I've seen it over and over again. For example, your thread on the largest rail yard was an excuse to post that photo of Chicago showing the massive north-south extent of the skyline. I'm not stupid.

Stalker, that is all I can say!
Why are you here then?
I didn't make a thread to ask for your opinion about my personality!
Please read the thread title before you bashing on someone, thanks!

Millions of people commute from the surrounding suburbs/exurbs of Yokohama, Saitima, etc. Plus inner city rail service too to compliment the already-complex subway system.

I'm here to counteract the ignorance and idiocy you've been spreading about Chicago's rail system.

Wasn't this already discussed in the previous rail capital thread?

Also, I wonder why Osaka-Kobe-Kyoto is ignored by almost everyone. According to this report (in English), it is easily the world's second busiest rail system; even Nagoya seems to be busier than some of the examples you're providing.

Oh yea, I remember that link, thank again btw!
I would think that some of the cities in Japan also have more extensive commuter rail network than the european cities. Can you show us some Osaka, Kobe, Soppro and Nagoya's commuter rail maps!

I wasn't agreeing with you. Are you that dense? Perhaps... You'd start a "Which City has the Best Sidewalks" thread if it meant you could post photos of Chicago's skyline. Keep doing us the disservice of maintaining your presence at this forum, ChicagoSkyline. *cheers"

^ Thanks Vapour, much appreciated! Tokyo is really well deserving for the commuter rail capital of the world and so are osaka, kobe and kyoto!
and nagoya as well, some really complex commuter network!

Hey Vapour, How are the riderships in Osaka-Kobe-Kyoto and Nagoya stacks up to Tokyo?
Which city do you think has the most advance and complex commuter systems and networks in Japan?
