Fun, but London's pretty obviously wrong down near Brixton and beyond.

I'm surprised not to see Berlin or Chicago

That bit at the bottom's Tramlink - crossing over the Northern Line and joining the District at Wimbledon.

Chicago is in there - immediately below London. Berlin is on there too, further up the page. There doesn't seem to be any logical order to the diagrams.

Baijing, Shanghai and Seoul look "challenging"!

Yep. DLR is included too.

They are ordered alphabetically by country (Algeria, Argentina, Armenia, Australia...), then alphabetically by city within the country (Gold Coast, Sydney).

They sure do, though there are lots of easy ones too.

Yes the order's very counter-intuitive, so I used control F to search. I guess if the text is part of the graphic then it won't work

If that bit's Tramlink linking up with the District at Wimbo, then where's the Victoria line down to Brixton?

The Croydon loop looks similar in size to the Hainault loop too!

On the long, diagonal line (Northern), there is a bit sticking out past it

Oh right - it seems to intersect at pretty much the same place as the line to the right - I assumed the two were the Northern and Bakerloo at E&C
