After more than a year in the making, Metro will unveil a new map Thursday that includes the future 23-mile Silver Line in Northern Virginia. It is the first time the iconic 37-year-old map, featuring all of Metro’s rail lines has undergone a major facelift. Metro officials kept the new map under tight wrap for more than two years while original designer Lance Wyman worked on the update. It shows not just the Silver Line, but added features such as connections to airports and other rail systems.The trains aren't always in the best shape, but DC's subway stations are the nicest in the country. And hey, there's finally gonna be a train to Dulles! Probably about the same time the Second Avenue subway finally opens.
