See Amtrak's entire passenger rail system laid out like a subway map.
If you love either trains or maps, you'll dig the designer Cameron Booth's "<a href="http://www.flickr.com/photos/senexprime/4785807080/">Amtrak Subway Map</a>," which shows the entirety of Amtrak's rail service in the style of a subway map. And if you're <a href="http://www.good.is/post/train-in-vain/">like me</a> and you love both trains and maps, then you're probably going to want to stop whatever you're doing and <a href="http://www.cambooth.net/for-sale">order a nice, limited edition print</a> of one of these straight from the designer himself.<p> Of the design, Booth <a href="http://www.cambooth.net/archives/246">explains</a>:</p><blockquote> <p> Surprisingly, I haven't seen another take on this anywhere else on the internet, but I guess it is a fairly monumental undertaking (Good thing I'm the patient type!). Every last station is shown, the result of a lot of research on both Amtrak's official site and Wikipedia. This version has all station names and route information listed.</p> </blockquote><p> Amazingly, as Booth wrote to Jonathan Crowe at <a href="http://www.mcwetboy.net/maproom/2010/11/amtrak_routes_a.php">The Map Room</a>, Amtrak's current service map doesn't even include all station names and route information.</p>
