Here is the insane NYC subway map. It was made by Duke87. Big image.

Those other cities don't exist anymore, silly - only Cleveland miraculously survived the apocalypse somehow...



@ CNGL: you know your fantasy map has gone too far if you have to use Greek letters...

Map is not mine. I have found it in another forum, and Duke87 (his author) exhausted both the Latin and the Greek alphabets (Well, except for Φ (phi) line, which doesn't exist).

@ thesmartboy: There is actually a Middlesex County. What I don't know is how they came up with that name .

Perhaps Middlesex County was actually named so because it was originally Middle of Saxon country.

In England you have a couple of counties with sex in the name surrounding London. It does refer to Saxons, as these areas were Saxon territories in what was then a Celtic country. Essex was one of their eastern colony's, Sussex was south, Wessex was north. Middlesex is in the centre, and is now part of central London.

Subway and Light Rail for Glasgow. Glasgow has a wealth of disused railway alingments, viaducts and tunnels, so here is what I'd do with them as part of a modern light rail/tram system.

The Orange line is the existing Subway, which will be integrated into the new tram system.

The Yellow Line connects High Street station (the future Glasgow terminus for High Speed rail) with Glasgow Queen Street and Glasgow Central stations at street level. Between High Street and Commonwealth, it runs on disused railway alignment, with underground stations along the way. Between Commonwealth and Carmyle (where the line interchanges with Network Rail services) the line will run grade separated along side street level traffic. Between Glasgow Harbour and College, the line will run along a disused elevated railway alignment through the old shipyards and docklands, serving some densely populated tennement areas. The line will run at street level between the SECC and the Airport on the southern branch.

The Red Line makes use of disused railway viaduct between St. Enoch and West St. From then on it runs along the lines of the existing Paisley Canal and Cathcart lines, replacing heavy rail traffic. Beyond Paisley Canal it runs at street level, connecting with the yellow line. Beyond Cathcart, it runs at street level to Castlemilk.

The Green Line would run between Easterhouse, in the east, and Maryhill in the west. It will run at street level between Easterhouse and Berkeley St, and it will run underground using abandonded tunnels between Kelvingrove and Maryhill.

EDIT - I'll repost!

Your link is too long! Can you find a shorter link to do it? Perhaps you can try http://bit.ly to shorten the long link, if possible.

Okay, here it is. A tram based expansion of Glasgow's rail network, think Manchester Metrolink. This system would use a mixture of street running (central section and Airport branch of the yellow line), conversion of heavy rail lines (West Street to Cathcart and Paisley Canal), and reintroduction of disused tunnels (SECC to Maryhill and High Street to Commonwealth) and viaducts (St. Enoch to West Street and Whiteinch to Clydebank)

The orange line is the existing Subway circle, and interchange points either denote an interchange between light rail lines or Subway, or interchange to Network Rail services.

Ah yes, the map is somewhat incomplete.

The red line would take trams through the streets past Glasgow Cathedral, and over the motorway into the new developments (as part of the Glasgow 2018 Youth Olympics bid) at Sighthill, and then carrying on north to interchange with rail services on the North Clyde and Maryhill lines at Springburn.

The green line would travel at street level towards Easterhouse. The green line is essentially the same line that was proposed in the early nineties, and was almost built.

The yellow line is essentially the route of our yet to be completed BRT route, and the red line is a long discussed solution to increasing capacity on the Cathcart Circle line, and the conversion of the Paisley Canal line also allows for an extra line to the Airport, while serving Paisley with the trams.

I'm working on a map for Busan, South Korea.


Based off this forecast map I found a year or so ago:

Very interesting. And your line map looks much more simple and organized too.

That is simple awesomeness!
It's good that you managed to connect the Silver line to the other lines since in the original map,it is disconnected.

What is the name of the westernmost station on the Silver line?

What an odd network btw, with all these isolated, looping or zig-zagging lines.

Not sure which station you mean smart boy... Maybe you can just wait for a full sized finished version. (Thanks for the compliment )

Alargule, I'm pretty sure when they decided to build Busan they looked country wide for the least appropriate place to build a huge city. Every building decision is determined by the body of water or mountain in the way...

I wanted to make a fantasy transit map in Google Maps, but I guess made too much items because it wont show up. Does anyone have an program,website,etc that I can make a transit map on. Thank you!

You could use Java Open Street Map Editor. PM me if you want to know how to enable Google's satellite map tile service there.
