This is proving crazy to represent, following the standard pattern of just doubling up my stations produces a beast which craps all over consistency and dominates the map. Any ideas?
If it is a fantasy map then my initial thoughts are that you have given branches their own identity, which takes up space. It doesn't hurt to merge them into one service (e.g. District line, London).

its semi-fantasy. trying to show local rail routes in a metro style. would like to avoid merging them if possible as its just near this central station they come together in such a mess.
think i might have to make my lines smaller and have a big difference between small and big stations. but then that introduces the question of whrre i draw the line....

Most of the map is Glasgow, and it's far and away the most heavily used part of the system, yet there's no effort to make a map for Glasgow, like any other city would have.
Assuming that the first map accurately reflected traffic flows, this was a tragedy. A similar thing occured here in Melbourne, Australia, but I won't pull the diagrams out now.

Surprisingly few subways on the Jersey side, and surprisingly few connections from there to Manhattan.

NYC is one big city that is and was the core of the metropolitan area. On the Jersey side it's smaller cities (several in just that pic) which was less dense and there's the Hudson river. It's a big river. Those are some of the main reasons for what you mention, Silly_Walks.

There's politics in this too. A project that would have allowed trains from several New Jersey lines to go directly to Penn Station in Midtown Manhattan, instead of terminating at Hoboken on the western shore of the Hudson River, was canceled by New Jersey's Republican governor after 600 million dollars already spent. Reasons given are considered shady.

The big river I understand, but if another subway tunnel was built, perhaps more to the north and running through parts of the Jersey side, the proximity in travel time would make it more dense because more people would like to live that close to Manhattan for lower prices.
Or at least that was my though process.

Here is a zone map of Copenhagen, there is no difference on Metro, S.-train, Local trains and commuter trains on this map because its used to calculate the price for a trip.
In this case its the price when travelling from the airport.





3 future rail links are not included on this map.

Copenhagen Ringsted high speed line that starts from Ny Ellebjerg, then runs parallel to the Bay of Køge Line with a distance between a few 100m meters north of Ølby to a few kilometres at the inner part of the line.

At a point between Ølby and Jersie and Lille Skensved it it will run west towards Ringsted that are not located on this map but are located somewhere southwest of Borup in the outer left of this map.

Ring 3 Light rail that starts east of Lyngby Lokal, then passes, Lyngby, Buddinge, Herlev, Glostrup and Vallensbæk before ending at Ishøj.

City Circle line (Metro) the outer points in this circle clockwise are just south of Ryparken, Østerport, Kongens Nytorv, København H, Frederiksberg, Nørrebro and finally back at the station south of Ryparken.


Metro map with the future circle line.




S train map without the metro lines.

Yeah, I saw this panorama and couldn't help myself from adding the train lines. I think I messed up the red lines, though.
