Is this a fantasy map or in any way planned? If it isn't from the municipality and from a railfan instead then it doesn't really mean much does it?

That would be an impressive network if it gets built. DC would be quite the transit city if it pulls that off!

Indeed, but I would love for the region to also invest into a bigger and more frequent suburban rail system, a circular metro or light rail route, and more TOD in the region.

Underground tunnel under construction at Tysons Corner

Tunnel part of Metro line that will take trains from Falls Church to Reston
by Fairfax County Times Staff

A 2,400-foot tunnel is under construction under Tysons Corner, as part of the Dulles Corridor Metrorail Project. The tunnel is part of the 11.7-mile Metro line that will take trains from Falls Church to Reston by late 2013.

Tysons Corner will serve as home to four of Phase 1's first five stations.

The tunnel goes underground where Route 123 meets Route 7, and will connect the Tysons I and II metro stops.


Shamus Ian Fatzinger/Fairfax County Times Chafik Ahbella and John Hall sort hardware used to install brackets inside a 2400-foot tunnel that will connect the Tysons I and II metro stops as part of the Dulles Corridor Metrorail Project. The tunnel is part of the 11.7-mile first phase that will take trains from Falls Church to Reston by late 2013.

I wasn't aware the New Metro Rail was going to be underground through parts of Tysons?

Only for a very short distance in order to negotiate a relatively tight turn and grade change—no underground stations.

Good News Concerning MARC (Found it late)

MARC to add 16 rail cars
Purchase will allow 3,000 more passengers per trip

By Annie Linskey, The Baltimore Sun

3:54 p.m. EDT, November 2, 2011

Maryland commuter train riders will have more seats when the state adds 16 rail cars to its busy MARC lines. But the cars won't arrive until 2013.

The purchase was approved Wednesday in a 3-0 vote by Maryland's Board of Public Works. The board agreed to buy 54 new rail cars for $153 million from Bombardier Transit Corporation, a Quebec based firm. Thirty-eight of the cars will replace old ones in the fleet.

The new rail cars will allow 3,000 additional commuters to sit per trip, Maryland Transit Administration head Ralign Wells pointed out. The new cars will hold 127 to 142 passengers, up to 30 more than those in the fleet being replaced.

"MARC riders will be so relieved," said Gov. Martin O'Malley, who chairs the public works board, which also includes state Comptroller Peter Franchot and state Treasurer Nancy Kopp.

The governor noted that the state rail lines enable "people who work in the Washington area to live in Baltimore essentially at half the cost."

MTA administrator Wells said his agency has not yet determined how the new cars will be allocated among the three MARC lines. "Everyone will notice some improvement," Wells said. MARC runs two rail lines through Baltimore, the Camden and Penn lines, as well as the Brunswick Line to the west.

Each new rail car will have two levels for seating. And each will have four doors instead of two, a change that will reduce time spent at stops since riders will be able to enter and exit more efficiently, Wells said.

Wells said he expects the cars to be delivered "mid-2013." It can take years from order to delivery of new rail cars, but Wells said these are coming faster because Maryland is buying some that were initially ordered by the New Jersey Transit Administration.

It will be a mix of grade / traffic separated sections and traffic mixed sections.

The unanimous recommendation now goes to Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley (D) as he considers which mode and route to submit in a highly competitive bid for federal construction money.

A 15-mile Corridor Cities Transitway (CCT) would connect the Shady Grove station at the end of Metro’s Red Line in Rockville with the Clarksburg area, via Gaithersburg and Germantown. <snip>

A rapid bus system is estimated to cost $491 million to build, while a light rail system is projected to cost $772 million.

Wonder if masking the tracks in that purple line promo must've been intentional.

TBH looking at the video the seats on the older 6000 series cars looked (and actually are) more confortable. Maybe it's just an impression.
