Here’s a link to another blog post with the “top eleven subway systems” in the world. (2007.02.27).
Editor’s Note: The link has since gone dead. Here’s some new content and a vote of my own for best subways.
In the eighth grade, I went on a trip with my parents to see the nation’s capital. Instantly, the station’s design and condition made an impression on me. Years later I would come back in a post-apocalypse world created in a game called “Fallout”. The accuracy of their game design to this particular subway station was eerily creepy. In any age virtual or real, I liked the architecture of each passing station.
On different occasions of my life, I find myself back here on home ground. I lived in the suburbs but the jobs of those days were mostly in the big City. Traffic is terrible (ok, impossible) to navigate so I take the alternative. Through subterranean tunnels I hurtle and rock to the scrapes of noisy metal. I am aware of some trains in other parts of the world, but I know well of one. This is a part of my evolving story.
