Tokyo Rail system, Subway and Trains are great!

Just like the maps, their great (right click, save image as.. ofcourse).
But, these two gif's are just too big to compare.

^^ What's the scale of that geographically accurate map?
roughly 200km long and 200km wide, but not that accurate.
The center and the end are far differently shown in scale.

BTW: silly thing (nice nick...;)): did you make those maps? Great work - it must've cost you some time!
I see the Chuo line has been included as well...has any date been set when this maglev-line should be operational?

Tokyo's railway system is anyway modelled after London. The British, American and German engineers heavily involved to push Japan to become the developed nation. :)

Is it now? I always thought that most of the railways in the greater Tokyo area were already built before the Second World War...?

This map includes all rail services in the greater Tokyo Area. I believe that only a fraction of it is underground; the rest is all above-ground, just like 'normal' train lines. The only difference with suburban railway systems elsewhere in the world, is that Tokyo's is extremely dense. The amount of 20 million (!!!) people using these lines every day is just stupefying...
