Finish it up fast and put it up.

Bye the way, are you from Tehran?

If you are, try making a better map of the Tehran city Metro itself, I've not seen a good map of Tehran Metro.
Well I was born in Tehran, though I would never really class myself as being from Tehran. I am British, not Iranian, having grown up here with British values. That being said, I'm not ashamed of my Iranian heritage :P so nobody get antsy.... haha!

That being said, I can't find a great wealth of maps on Tehran Metro, so I decided to make on on Adobe Illustrator. Almost finished it as well. Debating though whether I should try and illustrate the lines under construction or planned.

I think you should include all lines.

Very neat map.

And that yellow line has only five stations??

Apparently... I decided not to add the other lines as there doesn't appear to be any firm indication as to the stations etc and so I decided to leave them out until they were firmed up. I did however modify the map to include the other part of line 4, which is under construction, I think, which will interchange at Azadi. I also had to correct a couple of things as well:

Yeah, I thought something was missing (I was searching for Tehran Pars station, I remember that because it sounds like Tehran Purse).

How about your fantasy map now...

Hi! I recently finished my fantasy tram network map for Tallinn, Estonia in 2040:

Click on it for larger image (pdf).

The current tram routes are drawn with solid lines, except that tram route no. 4 finishes in Tondi station, route no. 2 drives between Kopli and ▄lemiste stations. Everything else is imaginary, though some are based on real projects (that never got built). The "I stage" is with wide dashes and "II stage" in small dashes.
Since a light rail service has been planned in Tallinn since 1970-s, most of the people hope that one day the light rail will be built. Most likely is that routes 5, 7 and 10 will be built, 6 is a possibility, extending 3 to Pirita, 4 to Risti and building 8 are long shots. Extending 2 to Pelguranna, 3 to Viimsi, building 9 to Tabasalu and 11 between two districts - pure fantasy of what I'd hope. I also hope you like my map .

What I would love to see happen in a HSR in the UK. There are connections to the Isle of Wight as that is where my 'company' originates. I have various plans for the Island transit and this would be the ideal progression. The lines show the routes, not the express stations etc.

Very interesting...

I'm not sure about some of the routes though...just seems a bit of on odd route...

Swansea-Oxford and Newport-Falmouth

Sandown-Europe via London is very good though...

Ha! I know what you are saying, but the idea would be stages- The Island needs a connection between it and the mainland. So after they are created, a highspeed link between London and Portsmouth and Southampton and Cardiff seemed logical. Then they would connect to Falmouth/Folkstone-Europe. There is some logic in the madness...honest. :P

Nice map PoshBakerloo

For those of you using Fireworks to make maps - how do you get such nice curves? I've no idea how to do that!

It's pretty good but I think line 6 should extend to Maardu via Muuga. Line 9 is too much, on the other hand. Those areas(Tiskre, Tabasalu), are mainly suburban sprawl where even bus lines aren't viable.

I would like to know aswell...Quite often I use a shape like a square with rounded edges, but cut the rest away, I'm sure there is a better way!

Before the financial crisis hit Iceland hard there was talk about building a Light-Rail system in the capital. Some wanted to go a step further and build a mass-transit system, even thought i think that would just be a huge waste of money. Despite that I became very interested in the idea and made my own plan.



Also included is a High-speed train to Keflavik airport and a Bus Terminal with bus-lines to other parts of the contry (since Iceland doesn't have a trainsystem)
