Can't wait until the French train lines are complete. The nearest
thing to an SNCF map on the web is shite:


(And no, even the SNCF doesn't seem to publish one.)

A second thought: it would be nice to have a standard collection of

wherever. Obvious candidates:
- Driving
- Cycling
- Hiking/mountain biking
- Public transport
- Other networks (power, trucking...)
