This is a new map semi-detached Manchester forumer, former Manchester resident and Metro maps of the world author MarkO has produced for Manchester's guaranteed upgrades to the Metrolink light-rail system

image hosted on flickr


This is one forumer LocalLad produced showing the full planned 3b upgrade (which is dependent on acceptance of Transport Innovation Fund money which includes congestion charging)



Since they are either building just 3a or 3a and 3b together (depending on funding) there are no official maps for what the network will look like published at the moment, but I just thought it'd be nice to publicise their efforts more widely.

Funny, when York's VIVA map first came out, many were commenting on how it looked like the London Underground's map style. Seeing as someone has pointed out that the Toronto map was produced by a UK-based company, it would make sense that they use the London-style for the map.

The city of Amsterdam has 747.495 inhabitants. For the old city trams are the most important way to travel.

-213 km of light rail track
-Amsterdam has 16 regular tram lines, and one combined light rail/metro line

Oldest tram still in regular use:




The most common tram in Amsterdam (155 in total):


Light rail/metro line. It changes from a fast light rail line to a metro line halfway and visa versa.



Large version of the map: http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedi...terdamtram.png

Some tram lines may disappear in the future, because a very important metro line is under construction on the busiest public transport corridor (North/South Line --> 1,8 billion Euro for 10 km). Other lines could be extended to give people better access to Amsterdam Zuid station (which will be a very important station in the future with a main TGV and ICE stop).

Another interesting project is the Cargo Tram. For more: info http://www.citycargo.nl/index_eng.htm

When Toronto needs to get more LRVs to supplement the fleet, we can get these...they are already in TTC style livery.

Can't wait for Toronto's TransitCity development.
120 km of new rapid transit {250km of new track} LRT including several bridges, tunnels, and all on their own ROW. Completion starts next year and all to be completed by 2019.

I repost Vienna's map, as it seems not to show up any longer on page 1.

Rhein-Neckar-Verkehr tram network for Mannheim/Ludwigshafen/Heidelberg urban area

Lines: 16 lines (14 tram + 2 light rail) (2 only in peak hours)
Gauge: Meter-gauge
Vehicles: about 180
Length: 306.9 km
Passengers: 162 million/year



The network consists of two basic hubs, one for Mannheim/Ludwigshafen, and a much smaller one for Heidelberg. Both are connected through two paths by a light rail line entering tram conditions inside either city. Mannheim/Ludwigshafen is additionally traversed by another light rail line.
The network runs through 3 independant cities and 4 districts in 3 federal states, serving an area with a population of about 920,000 people. Further extension planned.

Interesting Rhein-Neckar map, do you have a larger one to post or a link?

A big version, as requested.

Note: Still shows C-Tunnel connection in Ludwigshafen, closed last December.



(extracted from this brochure)

Edit: Small addition - map only shows towns immediately connected to the network, and in some cases (e.g. Leimen, Heidelberg) not all of it either.

I didn't realize you could get a tram all the way from Heidelberg to Mannheim.

Line 5, OEG line.
Runs from Heidelberg via Edingen to Mannheim, does a small circle through the inner city, then goes to Heidelberg via Viernheim and Weinheim. Two hours for the round trip, about 40 mins from Heidelberg to Mannheim; runs every 20 minutes for full circle, between Schriesheim - Heidelberg - Mannheim - Weinheim every 10 minutes. Outside inner Mannheim, Heidelberg and two of the smaller towns, it's completely run as light rail on separate track, at up to 80 km/h.

There's actually a "RNV-Express" line on Sundays which runs between Heidelberg and Bad Dürkheim via Mannheim with fewer in-between stops, and it'll take you there faster than heavy rail can ;-)

That express would have to be fast as I got the S-bahn between Heidelberg and Mannheim and it was only 10minutes or close enough.

Cool that there is a tram link though as well.

By the way kato2k8, do you know the complete "route" length of this network?
