I wonder if Metlink allows hotlinking...

I'm not listing everything like everyone else, that'd just be a waste of space. The layout and style is unified anyway.

Suburban line:
It's ironic that the central stations are Flinders St and Southern Cross/Spencer St while there's a station called Melbourne Central, which is just a shopping centre with an office tower on top. I pity the tourists who arrive at the "Central" station only to find four underground platforms.

Bus route:


Tram route (plus light rail section which isn't marked on map):

I have an idea of the thread. How about to show where we rode on metros around the globe, in which cities it was and which lines we took.

feel invited to post your maps of yours metro trips.

Most of the lines outside the city center run above ground, with the exception of parts of the Nothern line, Piccadilly line, Victoria line (which is entirely underground) and Jubilee line (the 1999 extension). Everywhere else, it's more like a suburban rail network than a "metro".

I didn't travel much outside London city as well. But some lines are quite interesting like the one to Cockfosters or the Hainault loop. Some stations out there are nice underground ones like Finsbury Park, Southgate, Gants Hill. I've travelled too many metros to make maps of it, and in some cases I don't remember exactly where I went. I only have a list of cities (http://mic-ro.com/metro/visited.html , it's not quite up to date, i must still add Dublin, Hong Kong, Shenzhen and Shanghai).
