Impressive maps...

Sorry for the offtopic, but I would like to include another map... as it is dynamic, I can only put the link... It is for the bus services in Rotherham...

Enjoy it.

Can you tell me what is the average distance between the stations?

We need more geographically accurate metro maps in this thread.

There will be 31 stations on the line, so it will be an average of 2km between stations.

Interesting.... In the Lisbon metro, Portugal, the average distance between stations is 1km.

Well, the station density on the eastern part of Line 2 in Shanghai (the part close to Pudong Airport) is extremely low. The rest of the line has much closer distance between stations.

I've been working on my own geographically-accurate Tokyo rail map for a while now... It's still far from complete (missing lines, no stations, line colors will probably change, etc.), but I figured I would share what I have so far.

The map borrows some concepts from FML's Tube-style map of Tokyo, particularly for use of tinted colors for subway through-servicing. For reference, the thick heart-shaped loop in the center is the Yamanote Line.

Sorry for the size...

Wow...that's massive!

You should add a scale to that, so people can get an idea of the scale and density of this network.

My plans for Lisbon Metro!

First, the actual network:



And now, my plan!
It is written in Portuguese so I'll give some additional information. 7 underground lines (1 to 7) and then several light metro lines (N for (Norte) North and S for Sul (South).

Part of the sections of S1, S2 and S3 light metro lines already exist.

The map doesn't even take into account many of the tighter s-curves on the network...

Brasilia is a planned city, build in 60's to replace Rio de Janeiro as Brazil's capital.

Its metro system consists of two operating lines (green and orange), where the main section is shared by both lines. Fleet has 20 four-car trains built by Mafersa (bought by Alstom in 1998) and Alstom.

The map above is the official one from the official site (www.metro.df.gov.br)
Due to connection problems where I live, I couldn't verify if there is an English version of this site
