Intercity network between Sigourney-La Défense and Moonlight Shadow Eastport (10 160 000 inhabitants). You can comparate it to BART system at San Francisco or kind of RER like Paris.

Nice maps, all! Here's something I've been working on for the past few days: a schematic map for my fantasy city "Maysoo".
It's not even closed to being finished: most of the station names have to be (made up and) filled in, I still have to create a legend and there's way too much space on the top and right sides of the map. Click on the picture below for a larger PDF-file:

What software do you use to make those maps? Other than MS Paint?

I use Adobe Illustrator. Great for map making - though a bit more complicated to learn then MSPaint

Do you need to buy it or just the free trial? I'm not paying $600!

Dentrobate, my droog! I am Panzerfaust, from Urban Toronto. Remember me? The one who argued with you many a time before you ended up banned? Didn't expect to see you on here. I don't post much here, anyway.

I made that map a long, long time ago, before I really knew anything about transit planning (if you'll note the date I posted it). Nowadays, my map would be a lot different, with a Downtown Relief Line and extensive usage of LRT.

Get Inkscape. It's open source, it's free, and it's about as good as Illustrator minus a few little specifics that won't make any difference to you making maps. Just google it.

A modified version of the CityRail network. Unlikely to ever happen...

It's mainly Suburban Heavy Rail with Metro Lines in other densely populated areas. There is about 70 new stations more than the current CityRail map.

I like the reappearance of the Ropes Creek line.

Some of the lines on the map don't really have much population around them but the idea was mainly for future growth areas. Ropes Creek seems to have a lot of housing going up hence that.

I'm suprised they even shevled that considering all the houses that would pop up there in the future.

I really like the way you represent the metro lines: colored stations on grey lines instead of colored lines.

BTW: you misspelled 'Museum'...

Yes, the Toronto subway is massively under built. To put things in perspective, the City of Madrid and the City of Toronto have roughly the same population and land area. Madrid's subway is 282 km while the Toronto subway is 69 km.

Toronto, at the bare minimum, needs double the track it has now. I live in central Toronto near the waterfront and I can't take a subway downtown. I have to take a bus north 20 blocks, travelling away from downtown, before I hit track. Only then can I travel east. Then I switch to a southbound track to back track towards the lake again.

Completely absurd! I live directly west of downtown, but the only direction you can travel by subway from downtown is north! You can't go east or west, diagonal, nothing. The ridiculous part is that many Torontonians think the subway is fine the size it is.
