A new Tokyo transport map - well done JR East

I came across this for the first time this evening. It's a new integrated map of the Tokyo rail network.  it's seriously impressive. Not all stations are marked, but as far as I can tell, all lines are.  (At least if the Toden Arakawa tram line and the Nippori Toneri liner are on it, I think all lines should be.)
It really gives a sense of the extent of the rail network.
This is the link to the JR East page.

Sure beats the Sydney rail network

Sure to be sure... though the number of accidents - mostly people falling or jumping onto the tracks seems to be increasing a lot... Barrier gates on the stations is going someway to reduce incidents, but even so, definitely much better than Sydney!
