samsonyuen - The Glasgow Underground is actually along with the Budapest Underground the 2nd oldest networks in the world behind London.



A slightly more comprehensive rail map of Urban London that includes suburban lines that practically act as metro lines (due to their frequencies) within the urban area in London. This is not the "metro" area rail map which is totally different.

In this pdf you can find the map of the metropolitan region of Barcelona (not the city proper).

Actually the above map is not the tube map. It is the Urban London rail map. The Tube makes up around 40% of all heavy rail stations in the Urban London area.

Moscow map

This is the official metro/mini-metro/light metro/monorail map from the December 2003. It can be seen usually inside subway`s car.



Also you can see inside the cars the plan of the present line.
For example,
Zamoskvoretskaya and Kakhovskaya lines


Arbatsko-Pokrovskaya line


Filevskaya line


Kaluzhsko-Rizhskaya line

MEXICO CITY

Total length of Mexico City subway is now 201.7 km. That does not include a light rail line serving the southern part of the city (18 stations, 18 km. from Tasqueña to Embarcadero).

Number of lines: 11 - all rubber tyred like some lines in Paris and the metros of Montréal and Santiago de Chile; except Line A which has standard steel rail)

The first system that uses symbols and colors for identifying stations.

The Mexico City metro is the cheapest subway system in the world, and it has one of the biggest transfer stations in the world: Pantitlán, terminus of lines 1, 5, 9, A, and tens of local bus lines.
