Question: how come there isn't a straight line connection between potzdamer platz and zoo. garten? I know there's a big park between them, but wouldn't that be the quickest route between the two stations?

Brussels Railway lines on an aerial; South is up, North is down.
I tried to be a accurate as possible. The lines going in the countryside might be off a little and most lines left center of this picture are below ground.
I'm also going to do the Brussels Metro on the same picture.

Brussels Metro also added on the map.
The dotted yellow line is not full blown metro like the other lines but Pre-Metro. It's basically a lightrail line that goes below ground in the city center.

Red- Line 1
Orange-Line 2
Yellow- Pre metro line 3 and 4
Green- Line 5
Blue Line 6

Scheme map to compaire: (note that both maps are upside down from eachother.

Well, there is: take the U2

Or do you mean a physical straight line? In that case I see no use of a subway through a park.

Also Potsdamer Platz is not one of the most frequently used stations.

Please, please, please do Stockholm next. The current map is a horror of bad design: http://sl.se/ficktid/karta/vinter/SL...%A5rtrafik.pdf
Just look at that line 22 (LRT/tram), how it handles the extensions...
note: line 22 will also very soon be extended to a transfer with L25 at Sickla and the commuter rail lines will get a new tunnel under the central city, in effect replacing Karlberg with Odenplan (i.e. creating a new transfer station to the Green subway) and the commuter station Centralen will be replaced by one called "City" that has the same location/conenctions map-wise. Oh, and S7 will be extended one stop westwards to T-Centralen/City.

Qutie a few changes coming, and the ones already happning are already breaking the map badly. No word from the transit agency on a new map being on the way though - and i've asked them a couple of times.

The map is too small and the writing is too large.

Koekskensmonster, a Belgian forumer, made this splendid map of all lines on the Belgian rail network:

Here is the full map in pdf.
