World Urban Rail Systems [Map]

Since I’ve been writing about transit a lot lately, I thought I’d share this super cool map of world rail systems (from 2008). I actually ran across it looking for a photo last week for a post on the world’s first subway system. It’s apparently not very accurate, in case you were wondering, but definitely fun to look at. 😀

Hope you like it.
