Are there metro systems not open to the general public? I know of Moscow's rumoured Metro-2, but are there others, either for military or civilian purposes, that are not part of a city's public transit system? I'd also be interested to know of rumoured systems, or any fictional systems described in great detail.
Aldeburgh to London via public transit, on a Sunday next March: possible? (Google Maps is not listing any option at all on Sundays during the next few weeks, and while Google doesn't have March schedule info yet, I assume March is no better than October.) Hoping this is a glitch or missing info since there are so many options for other days of the week.
Next week, on a weekday morning, I need to meet up with a friend near Chicago. She'll be coming from Peoria in a car; I'll be coming from Logan Square, with a carry-on size suitcase and no car. We'll be driving together to Grand Rapids, Michigan. Can you suggest a specific spot that might work? [more inside]
One of my coworkers said that the PATH will shut down if the snow accumulates past the height of the 3rd rail. But the line is underground (except outside where there are wires above head-height handling the charge) - could that actually happen. Has the PATH ever been shut down due to snow accumulation before?
