It's not only one, but various systems through Charliland. So far I've done San Cucufate (The capital city, though it's not digitallized yet) and Marató (Marathon). There are other four cities with metro, and another one with a line U/C (They are burying one tram line, and when the project is finished it will become a metro line). And the metro plans are really impressive, for example the capital city has plans calling for 20 lines and some 750 kilometers by 2015!

Cool!

Just to point out on my map, that some stations are based on real life stations. For instance, Pavonia-Turney subway station of Line 1 heavily resembles the Pavonia-Newport station on the New Jersey PATH (without the cave-like feel). Nearly all of Line 3's stations resemble stations from the Washington DC Metro. While others resemble Parisian stations.

I am currently in the process of redesigning my maps to have the same layout. They will be posted soon.

Metrolink fantasy map

Note:

The green lines are commuter rail (Missouri Eagle and Alton Eagle), and the dotted line is BRT.
The blue line is underground on Kingshighway from I-70 to Forest Park.
I am proposing the Blue line, Black line, and Purple Line all converge at Union Station, as would the Green lines.
The Green lines and Amtrak terminal would relocate to the tracks behind Union Station, with a new canopy built, and a glassed in skywalk (including slidewalk for those needing it) suspended from the roof and running to the head house.

(yeah, it's kinda out there, and expensive; but if you're going to dream, dream BIG!):

Updated map



Above is my updated map. Below are the noticeable changes:

I have included the "recent" Line 11 extension, which hypothetically opened in July, 2011. The extensions of Lines 3 & 8 have also been added. These extensions will be complete by the end of 2012. Line 13's extension will open around August, 2012.

The branch of Line 1 that travels through the military base is now an independent shuttle line (and runs similar to a shuttle train line of New York or a "bis" line of Paris). The main reason for this is because the service frequency needed to be increased for the Rabbit Beach branch on a 7-day a week basis, whereas frequency on the military base branch was seeing a drop in midday frequency. Security concerns at the base also limit the branch's operation and prohibit overnight operation (12am through 5am). The transit authority (YITSA) only operates trains on this line on Mon-Fri between 5am and 11:30pm and Sat/Sun/Holidays from 6am until 9:30pm

I've also added a second shuttle line to the map. The University of Kiloren shuttle line has been in operation since 1976, but has not appeared on the transit authority's maps until recently. The transit authority owns the infrastructure, but the university operates their own trains on the line (mostly consisting of rolling stock called the MRK75 and some refurbished MR71 stock from Line 6).

I've also tweaked some of the stations along Line 10.

Yoshi City Subway

Below is my preliminary map for the Yoshi City Subway, which is my other subway system. No stations have been listed yet, but there are six active lines, with a seventh proposed. Ironically, Line G was built before Line F due to many financial problems surrounding Line F.



Below is the timeframe by which each of the lines initially opened, followed by the year of its last expansion.

*For example: (Line #: Year the line opened|Year of last extension)

*Line A: 1973|1987
*Line B: 1977|2002
*Line C: 1980|2004
*Line D: 1983|2007
*Line E: 1997|2009
*Line F: Set to begin construction in 2014 (if there are no more delays)
*Line G: 2011|2012

Line D is currently undergoing another expansion (which is denoted by the dotted yellow line on the map), which is expected to open in 2014.

Also, Lines A through E are undergoing a change in rolling stock, as the MR 71 on Line A and MP 76 on Lines B, C, and D have become outdated.

*Line A originally ran MR 71 stock (130 trains) until 2010, when they were replaced by the MR 04 (150 trains).
*Line B originally ran MP 76 stock (110 trains) until 2012, when they were replaced by the MP 95 from Line E (150 trains).
*Line C is next to have its MP 76 stock (110 trains) replaced. They will be replaced with the MP 09 begining in the summer of 2012 (150 trains).
*Line D will have its MP 76 stock (80 trains) replaced after Line C is finished, likely to start in 2015 (150 trains).
*Line E orginally ran MP 95 stock (150 trains) until 2012, when they were replaced by the MP 05 (fully automated) stock (150 trains). As mentioned above, the MP 95 were transferred to Line B.
*Line G is operating MP 05 (fully automated) stock (90 trains, expandable to 150 trains if needed).

It is unknown what rolling stock Line F will operate. Originally, the plan was to make it fully automated as well (that component of the plan is still in place), however it is increasingly likely that the track will be catered for steel-wheel rather than rubber-tyred trains.

Meanwhile, the rolling stock transition within the Mushroom Kingdom Subway is nearing completion.

*Line 1 will be running an all MP 09 stock by 2013 (90 trains).
*Lines 2, 4, 5, 6, & 13 are operating MR 04 stock since mid 2011 (# of trains vary by line; 150 trains for Line 2, 130 trains for Lines 4 & 6, 110 trains for Lines 5 & 13).
*Line 3 will have its MR 71B stock (50 trains) refurbished. This project actually began in February, 2011 and should be complete in 2013.
*Lines 7, 8, & 9 will continue to operate the MR 87 stock (100 trains per line).
*Lines 10 & 12 will continue to operate the MP 95 stock (150 trains per line, though 2 additonal prototype trains operate on Line 3).
*Line 11 is operating the MP 05 (fully automated) stock (70 trains). Again, Line 11 is the newest line (it too was delayed previously due to financial problems).

*The Mushroom Kingdom Military Base Shuttle is operating the MP 09 stock (12 trains).
*The University of Kiloren Shuttle is operating the MRK75 (20 trains), alongside 10 refurbished MR 71 trains from Line 6.

Next, since I did this for the Yoshi City Subway, I will also list below, the timeframe by which each of the lines of the Mushroom Kingdom Subway initially opened, followed by the year of its last expansion.

*For example: (Line #: Year the line opened|Year of last extension)

*Line 1: 1897|2011
*Line 2: 1900|1971
*Line 4: 1905|1976
*Line 5: 1907|1987
*Line 6: 1910|1998
*Line 7: 1913|2004
*Line 8: 1915|1995
*Line 9: 1935|2006
*Line 3: 1982|2010
*Line 10: 1979|2009
*Line 12: 1997|2011
*Line 13: 2002|2011
*Line 11: 2010|2012

Proposed Lines/Extensions: Timeframe to begin construction|expected completion

For example: (year construction is expected to begin | year of expected completion)

*Yoshi City Subway Line D extension: (2010|2013)
*Yoshi City Subway Line F: (2014|2020)

*Line 13 extension to Easterling Blvd: (2009|2012)
*Line 3 extension to Carlson Hills: (2009|2012)
*Line 8 extension to Babylon Heights: (2009|2012/13)
*Line 9 extension to Babylon Shores: (2013|2016)
*Line 11 extension between MUTC & Maple Ridge: (2014|2017)
*Line 14 Phase I: (2014|2017)
*Line 12 extension to Marmaduke area: (2015|2020)

I don't understand why all of the lines have to loop around the same area, it's just a pain in the ass if I need to get through downtown. You get all these people overcrowding my train, if I even figure out which one I have to take... Anyways, it's a great map and if that's what tickles your fancy then sure. But there's no chance in hell we're getting similar to that in Montreal or I will punch the president of the STM in the face.

1331Massi's hellishness must lie in the troubling, overbearing prospect of choosing which metro line(s) of the mere five's worth (necessitated by the smallness of the island communities he lives among) to be travelling on all in addition to mistaking a presiding operator for some deputy(?) planner

Although I do enjoy creating fantasy maps this isn't one (although unlikely to ever become reality). I drew this map based on ideas from the city of Copenhagen on how the city's metro system can be enlarged. The already existing lines are the two green lines, and the light blue circle line is under construction (opens in 2018).

No, I'm just not a big fan of circles I think they just are too confusing. Planned extensions in Montreal would loop the orange line, and I am only for this because it is necessary to reduce congestion. I like 2 termini and separated tracks. Also, wouldn't there be delays if all the lines share the same track? One train has to stop to let the other pass, no? The STM really has the final say on whatever happens, anyways, because they're the ones who come up with the plans. Not to say that I wouldn't hate Pierre Moreau (transports minister) and Gérald Tremblay (mayor), which I already do. There is no need for anything similar to that in Montreal.

If you call 2M and 400K small, then yes, I live in small island communities.

My map was more serious than fantasial ... looking closer, you might realise that its loopings strengthen the whole network when it comes to service interruptions No Canadian city's large, is the way I see it ...

This map is fantastic (fantastisk!) - I love the style you have used.

Great work, looking forward to more maps from you!

How could it strengthen the system? Do the lines not use the same track? That's the only way to not have any interruptions. Montreal is almost as large as Houston and much more populous than Philadelphia. If for you, every Canadian city is small, you need a reality check.
