The Updated Map with a Key. If you live in Dock 1 and want to get to Elm Bank then you have three options: 1. Take the Railway but that costs more than the Deep, but its quicker.
2. Take the Deep which is cheaper but you have to interchange at Kellogg House Railway Station.
3. The third option is take the bus which runs around the City Ring Road which runs near Elm Bank.

I plan to add two lines which will run around the North from Docks across to Hospital and Along, another will run from Gardens Station on the Port Line up North East.

You should use png instead of jpg to save your maps.

I started a map on Inkscape years ago that incorporated an amount of transit that even Tokyo would envy. I chose a mythical city called 'Ickbid', which I put in the United states at a point of 45 degrees latitude and 45 degrees longitude. There are 4 track subways running everywhere(45 lines in total). A Washington Metro like system that connects through downtown with several former Commuter lines serving the inner suburbs. There is also a regional High Speed System, not unlike what is being killed in the US. And Light rail, a lot of Light Rail(54 lines)! My city is perfectly square 300 blocks by 300 blocks.

I've created a hand drawn city plan for a city called "Zitento"

The entire system is built underground, based on LA's Red Line Subway. Imagine LA's red line built as a full system.

Street Names aren't finished, but it's coming along nicely. I've also already started my bus map.





EDIT: The City has Local, Rapid, Express and BRT Service, with a large network of bus lanes and dedicated busways. It also has Trolleybus service.

Looks a lot like Melbourne's rail system, especially when you include the proposed metro tunnel.

Nice maps everyone.
Here's my vision for Thessaloniki Regional and Suburban trains. Most of the rails exist today but the service is not very frequent.

Ah, how nice of you to repost my map!

I made that map years ago, when perspectives for a complete Second Avenue Subway in New York by 2020 were looking good. By now, we'll have to wait and see if Phase I will even get completed by 2018.

Anyway, I made a newer NYC Fantasy map a couple months ago (click for larger map):

So, if it's fantasy, why no express service on 2nd ave line? And why no extension to Marine Park? Or any new lines in Queens?

That's because it's my fantasy map and not yours.

@ Maadeuurija: I use Adobe Illustrator. It's not free, though. A free alternative you could use is Inkscape.

But you should be open to some suggestions.

I'm always open to suggestions; however, eventually it's up to me to decide which suggestions I will incorporate into my map

This map depicts what role the SAS might eventually play when it gets extended on both ends into Harlem, the Bronx, Queens and Brooklyn. As you can see, the SAS connects to already existing branch lines, except for the new branch running below 125 St. These connections will help solve some bottlenecks in the current system, like the Lexington Avenue line (4,5), the 60 St tunnel (N,R) to Queens and the Cranberry St tunnel (A,C).
  • The connection between the SAS and the 63 St tunnel into Queens will allow for better use of the available capacity the 63 St tunnel has to offer. By removing the R from the Queens Boulevard Line and replacing it by the V, the Astoria line will get a dedicated connection to the Broadway Line's local tracks;
  • By taking over the Woodlawn branch currently served by the 4, extra train capacity will become available for the White Plains Road line (currently served by the 2 and 5). Extending the T down 125 St will offer connections between the SAS and the 1,2,3,A,B,C and D lines, thus creating a good connection between these lines and the east side of Manhattan and vice versa;
  • Extending the SAS into Brooklyn via a new alignment under Atlantic Avenue to a connection with the express tracks of the Fulton St line will relieve overcrowding on this line and will eliminate the bottleneck of the Cranberry St tunnel, where the A and C have to share tracks.

Of course those changes, via new 2nd Ave line, are good, I would like to see more - like those extensions I mentioned in my previous post, as well some new connections in Manhattan (like [7] extension down the 10th ave, via Chelsea and maybe further through West Village, East Village and some new line down the Brooklyn?). Still fantasy


EDIT:
Updated map of NYC Manhattan surface (streetcar) lines.

Here is my latest map. It's for a population of roughly 9,000 (So it wouldn't become a reality never, except for the commuter rail that already exists), but it's my best map so far. Nobody would say this was made in MSPaint:
