In Madrid, on the past years, they could have done that in 10 years.
Edit: Where's line 16?

There is fantasy of Belgrade rail rapid transit. The main criterias was:
- High level linerity of lines
- Possibility to get almost parts of the network with no more then one interchange.
- Using existing corridores of tramway lines, bullevards and motorways, for better possibility to
- Built as much as possible overground sections with LRT technology, somewhere using existing tramtrack
- Putting lines in corridores which are very busy by now
- One trass one line
- Hubs in suburbs for better commute from suburban buses, and precondition for polycentric conception of the city
- Connections of main stations Beograd Glavna, Beograd Centar and Novi Beograd with minimum 2 lines.
- Including airport and the biggest suburbs in the network

Reykjavík, Iceland

My idea for the first metro line in Reykjavík. It lies along the North side of the peninsula, which includes down-town (on the left).
Because how far north Reykjavík lies (64°N) buildings cast a large shadow. Hence I chose this route because I believe it is the only area that has the ability for dense enough areas (without blocking the sun) to justify the project. This process had already started before the financial crisis hit.

So, is this based off actual brainstorming that was done by city planners? I had read that back in '08, the city voted to construct an LRT line.

Although I have read those ideas, this is not based on them. Only my own views. But it was not voted to construct any system, it was only mentioned in the city planning (spanning to 2030) as a possibility.

From Spanish subforum. This would have been better


L1, L2 and L3 are metro lines. T4, T5 and T6 are tram lines.

Yep, is really for Reykjavik, which only has 180000 inhabitants. But even crazier was the 7 line network for my hometown, which only has 50000. Or this metro line for a 5627 inhabitant town (Actually a feeder of Barcelona's commuter rail):


PS: Almost forgot: it's Sant Vicenç de Montalt (about 40 km to the NE of BCN).

I like to make fictional metro systems. Every day, it's a different one! But the worst it's... names. I can't think enough for put names to the stations, so... I can upload some layouts without names and you make the rest.

fantasy map for Madrid:


(Map is not mine)
The only thing I don't like is that line 13 is missing. Other cities have a line 13 (Paris and Beijing so far, and the Expo branch of Shanghai) and they run perfectly...

The Beijing's holy hell should be here, as it's been drawn by an entusiast:

An extension to the Tyne-Wear Metro which serves Newcastle upon Tyne and the surrounding area.

This shows a greatly extended Metro system, so that it now serves the West End of Newcastle, the Metrocentre, the 'new towns' of Washington and Killingworth and more areas of Sunderland.

The Metro also extends across the county boundries into adjacent urban areas in Northumberland to the north of County Durham to the south.

Much of the Yellow and Green lines exist already.

Only the stations west of St James on the yellow line do not exist at the moment, while on the Green line only North Hylton and Castletown are fictional.

All the other lines are fictional, although Blaydon, Metrocentre and Dunston are stations on the mainline rail network, as is Cramlington.

Many parts of the other fictional lines use sections of mainline and disused tracks.

By the look of things, in this book you can find on last pages a big map with the next metro projects for Madrid (This book will be on sale from this week).


It sounds crazy!
