That's pretty cool, though I'm surprised he missed the South Shore Line highliner(s) for Chicago.

Yeah, I'm sure there are lots of errors/discrepancies one could find. For instance, he includes the Amtrak Cascades in Portland, Seattle and Vancouver in the category of "commuter and intercity rail" but he does not include any Amtrak services in places like the NEC or Chicago.

 

I think it's better to view it as a graphic design project, rather than an exhaustive list of transit vehicles.

Yeah, I noticed that inconsistency with Amtrak as well. But still nicely done.
