Can't we see it because it's a fantasy?

That, or even in his wildest fantasy Indianapolis won't have any decent public transit to show for.

By the way, which application are you using to make these maps? Especially the CPH tram one, which looks very good.
Please do a future Metro map for the Great Copenhagen-Malmö region. It would be nice to see swedi..err..sorry scandic station names on a Danish network (!).

Here is a fantasy map of LA that most of will become reality in some form in the next 30 years. this is made by Damien Goodman, who is a member here as well as SSP. This map includes current lines, lines under construction, and future lines that have been studied my the MTA as well as a few other potential lines.

Fantasy map for Hamilton, Ontario. The system would be elevated guideways running streetcars in their own ROW. The uptown/downtown line acts only as a geographical boundary, and there are no fare zones. There is an interchange with GO service at Hunter Station.

Chances are we will never see anything close to that here (as there isn't really a huge amount of demand for it), but I'd sure love an alternative to the HSR buses.

World Metro Map

Hello, like alot of you on here I've been doodling fantasy subway maps since I was a kid!

This is a map of all the Metros, Subways, Undergrounds and metro-like rail systems in the world, placed loosely in the right place to make a diagram of how they might all link together in the style of the classic London Underground diagram!

It was conceived by myself a few years ago and executed by a wonderful chap called Alan Foale whose design studio are responsible for officially updating the London Tube Map. It was very kindly given official sanction by London Underground (a rare honour). It was produced for the book "Metro Maps Of The World" in 2003 (as mentioned on this forum by Mike) which had the official maps of every subway system, plus a handful of fantasy maps but a future edition will include more of these dream maps. It was also turned into a poster sold by Londons Transport Museum and there were some postcards and leaflet made of it too.

(only for myspace users - another more public link coming soon!)

It can be also be seen animated and curved round the globe here:
http://www.metromapsoftheworld.com/

And here it is on the first edition front cover in more detail:

...and revised for the second edition here:


:-)

Wow, I wasn't aware the second edition mimicks the tube map in such a close fashion. Did you revise the entire overview for inclusion the inside title as you did for the first edition?

Updates and Dutch

Yes Robert, pretty much everything that could be update was (calculated almost 300 new maps and images in darker blue UK edition) - and we have since produced a DUTCH edition, just 6 weeks ago! Also fully updated with over 100 new maps in and a Dutch version of the world map - cant paste it here as it does not exist online anywhere yet but happy to email U a copy if you've not seen it :-)

Mark

Front cover of Dutch edition is very different too:

My fantasy map for a fantasy city. All that's left to do is fill in the stations...

That's great Alargule glad U liked it.

It's such a bizarre thing for an English person to visit a country where everyone appreciates the value of public transport - I heard that in the Netherlands planners forbid building of new large settlements unless there is a provision for new rail or tram operations! Is that true or just an urban myth?

Such a long way from where the UK is. They want to throw up 200,000 new homes without even considering new rail! It's bonkers!


Your fantasy map is really nice, and here's a little tip for map-making I picked up while researching the book; try and think of how to make space for the station names at the same time as drawing the map - reason is, as you'll see when you try to fit the names in, they are an important a piece of the jigsaw as the shape of the lines. Happy mapping!

:-)
Mark

That depends. Newly built-up areas in Amsterdam or Rotterdam usually get a new railway connection (metro, tram) to the existing network. In Amsterdam, they even built a completely new tram line to connect IJburg to the network.

Downside of it all are the huge costs, plus the fact that no project in the Netherlands somehow can be completed without considerable delays and cost overruns. In the meanwhile, the residents who came to live in the new areas all use their cars to get around...
