Mabuhay! I am from Angeles City!

Your maps are definitely impressive. I have a fantasy metro map for Norfolk, VA through Google Maps.

Here is zoomed in on the most westerly peninsula - notice I have used the bueker.net colour coding for the railway lines...



And a super close up of the city Sofia (named after my friend Sofia) to show the level of detail that the entire map of the island contains



And here is an image showing most of the entire island's passenger train service patterns, colour coded by operator, and astonishingly and unintentionally it looks like a scary rabbit from a nightmare in Watership Down.


nice map.

Thank you.

My 2 longest lines are 5 & 8 I believe. In Paris, Lines 5 & 8 are long as well.

I'm looking forward to seeing your future fantasy maps. I've been to Baguio as well, great city!

HARTride 2012:Regarding the Norfolk map,if you like extensive metro systems,you could extend it to North Carolina and Richmond,VA.

About Google metro maps, I made one of Zaragoza tram some time ago. Here is what I wrote:

Almost all are named after neighborhoods or adjacent streets (I've looked at OpenStreetMap for the ones in Arcosur, a new estate which is being built to the Southwest), but there are two that are not.

Super Mario Bros. No, I didn't go nuts. That is the name of the street! That part will have their streets named after videogames, like Space Invaders St.
Hilarión Gimeno. Named after a elementary school in the area.
José Carlos. A very well kept Aragonese secret . No, really is named after a kid who, just after EXPO 2008 ended, asked for help for fight against a disease (Incidentally, it was the same disease that named a station on the SC subway).
... but some weeks after I posted this I updated the map and the José Carlos stop is now gone, it used to be what is now Salvador Allende stop on T5 line.

^Great looking map visually and it's a great concept for a system with plenty of transfer opportunities and good coverage while still being easy to build in phases. I'm wondering tho - where's the amtrack station, or at least inter-city bus station? possible future HSR station?

Neat!

Here is my updated Mushroom Kingdom fantasy subway map.



Uploaded with ImageShack.us

The main changes to the system are as follows:

*The Line 8 extension to Babylon opened on August 15, 2012, allowing the Lewell Rd branch (which has generally seen low traffic) to be split off into it's own shuttle line. Line 8 will continue to operate the MS 87 rolling stock, which is steel-wheeled

**This shuttle line is slated to eventually become Line 16, which will connect into the western suburbs such as Belleville. There is already a one station extension to the west, called Belleville-Lewell, which opened on September 16, 2012. Additionally, there was a recent expansion project on the Line 8 and 9 tunnels between Gatewood Blvd and Levack Pinellas (partially due to the construction of Line 14) that allowed more tracks to be built. This in-turn, allowed shuttle service to commence between the Belleville-Lewell station and the Nevergold Transfer Center. The new shuttle line currently operates refurbished MS 71 stock from Line 4. These trains run in 4 car configurations in the daytime and 2 to 3 car configurations during off-peak hours.

*Although Line 14 was listed on my last map, it actually opened to passengers on October 7, 2012. The line is fully automated and operates rubber-tyred rolling stock, the MP 05.

*The opening of the station at I-395 on Line 10 has been delayed slightly, now set for December 30, 2012.
