Thanks for that. Google maps look good but the quality of maps in Adobe Acrobat is much superior. I will try and see if I can improve on the quality using Google maps.

Thanks again!

I assume you've decided Urbanrail.net isn't your cup of tea.

Australian Railmaps has good quality metropolitan maps that print out very nicely, but they're schematic rather than geographic. Includes New Zealand. Oh, and there may be some debate as to whether the routes depicted are "metro" or not. Nice maps, anyway, showing frequency, etc.

There are some beautiful French maps here (which include metro maps, and contour or photographic backgrounds).

That page has also got a lot of links, including to a Canadian set. I also got real-maps of Zurich through there, where I could watch the trains running!

Lyon's metro map:
-letters are metro lines
-T1, T2 and T3 are tramways
-there also are two funiculars (short subway trains to climb hills)
As from 2009 the T3 line will be extended to St Exupery Airport, and a brand new T4 line will have been finished. The A line is also to be extended to the south west.

Here's the map of Greater Seoul Area.



To be completed by next year (mid 2008).
Note, most of these lines are full-sized train metro lines except the outer purple one which is light rail.
Also, most are underground except the outer ones

I guess Seoul metro is new in a way.
Right now, electrification of surface lines are a boom in Seoul, mostly to serve outer suburbs.

Here is Abbendymion's future plans for the Mexico City metro (which didn't show up):

BART (Bay Area Rapid Transit), which includes San Francisco, Berkeley, and Oakland.



Here is a more detailed map of all the rail systems in the San Francisco Bay Area:

Shanghai, as of this December (with the exception of line 7 - the yellow line that terminates at the top left corner of the map). Line 6 (light purple line on the right side of the map), Line 8 (dark blue), and Line 9 (grey blue, on the left) will open by the end of the year. I believe there are even more lines and extensions U/C right now that will open by the time the World Expo is held here in 2010.



This is quite amazing when you consider the first phase of Line 1 (the red line in the middle) only opened in 1994.
