Trains that feel very long

I loved a number of things about the Hong Kong subway:  it's fast, reliable, clean, and punctual.  There are some more minor things I like as well, one of which you can see from this picture.  There are no doors between cars (only the second subway system I've been on like that), so you can see a long ways into a train.  And get a lot of warning about slopes and turns, if you're in the back of the train.

What you can't see in this picture are the subway maps at every door.  They show the whole line that you're on, tells what direction you're going, what stops you're at/between, which line(s) you can transfer to at the next stop, and which door will be opening.  It's a very nice, compact, map that conveys a lot of info.  Very well done.
