I love that Boston has a subway station called Wonderland.
I mean, you can actually answer the question in the Disney theme song! (The route does in fact go under land, though the Blue Line may go over hills as well.)
And since it’s the north end of the line, all the direction signs read like this one.
Apparently it’s named after an old amusement park in the area that ran from 1906-1911, and later a dog racetrack that picked up the name in the 1930s.
I wonder how many Boston kids have looked for tiny doorways hidden in the walls, or white rabbits hopping through the train stations.
Complicated as the Boston subway is, you can get just about everywhere with it. San Francisco should wish they had as many tunnels!
Complicated it is. The green line alone splits into four branches. But it does seem pretty thorough. The maps in each station showing the surrounding area, marked with a quarter-mile circle, are a nice touch as well.
Also, anyone who complains LA’s light rail doesn’t go all the way to the airport should try taking the train to Logan. The “Airport” stop is even farther away from the actual airport than Aviation/Imperial is.
