Shall line number 5 go northwest-southeast, or north-southwest?

Those two maps obviously represent dueling ideas for the Changsha Metro. It's pointless to look for consistencies.

So nothing's final with the number of lines?

88 stops in 180 km is not to be sneezed at.

I got these figures from "Transit Maps of the World" by Mark Ovenden. The figures are five years old now, so some may need updating.
  • Washington DC: 86 stops, 170 km
  • St. Petersberg: 54 stations, 103 km
  • Osaka: 121 stations, 128 km
  • Munich: 96 stations, 90 km
  • Mexico City: 151 stations, 176 km
  • Buenos Aires: 63 stations, 50 km

- just taken arbitrarily from "Zone 2" (i.e. Chapter 2: second order systems).

The numbers in the right column add up to 101 stops, not 88. There's a mistake in the table. The total mileage is correct, though.

Most probably the "stops" count interchanges double times. This could explain the difference.

These problems should be reasonably easy to sort out.

On the first map in posting #1, there are:
  • Blue line: 18 independent stations
  • Red Line: 20 indepent stations
  • Junction Stations: 1

Hence there are 39 stations, or if you count the junction station twice, 40.

On the second map in posting #1, there are:
  • 1: (Green) : 19 indepenent stations
  • 2: (Red) : 26 independent stations
  • 3: (Pink): 26 Indepent stations
  • 4: (Blue): 41 indepent stations
  • 5: (Orange): 25 indepent stations
  • Junction stations:15

Hence: total stations: 152
or, if you choose to count interchange stations twice: 167

However the later map (posting #9) indicates something different. I presume the blue or cyan terminals are railway yards, not stations.
