What is your favorite passenger railway and why?

Mine are Amtrak and Metra. I live very close to their tracks (about 10 minutes) and I see them very often.

King County Metro in Washington. They made a bus rapid transit system and they made it work well, unlike the MBTA. Yes, the Downtown Seattle Transit Tunnel is BRT even though most public officials probably say its just a tunnel reserved for busses. Yes it is closed for the next 2 years because it will be converted for to handle both LRV and BRT. No I don't know how LRV and BRT in the same tunnel will work unless the LRV vehicles got poles similar to those of trackless trolley buses.'

I like the King County Metro because they did what was stated above.

NJ Transit Rail Ops. and MTA Metro-North Railroad because well, they are local, and I see them on a regular basis. I also just landed a job with NJT, so that helps too.

Amtrak and Long Island Railroad.

NJ Transit and Metro-North ........mostly because of the diversity of equipment(I love the mixed trains of comet II,III,IV,and V's) and the way the systems are built(especially NJT)

NJT, hands down. I run for the rare stuff. SApeaking of which, I just added 5006 to my list of cabs seen. One more CometIII left. SQUEE!

MBTA all the way.

And for something unique, IR, Indian Railways

IR, fast as fire, something I find difficult to say for Amtrak. 10 minutes late is unacceptable in India...and such a smooth ride.

VIA, because they rock :-D

My favorite is the Metro-North RR, What other railroad has the combination of one of the busiest terminals in the world's greatest city, and some of the most scenic views. Plus, the unusuall cab signal system.
