Posting an update of your 'work in progress' once in a while might also do the trick, of course...

Lagos Nigeria

Lagos, Nigeria, is now planning an above ground metro network (using refurbished Toronto subway cars). Naturally, I completely ignored this.

I like the way you've laid it out. Each line in itself will be good for getting around and there's also plenty of exchange stations so it won't be everyone using the same station to switch lines. I also see a few potential extensions
I'd add an airplane symbol for the airport station though, for clarity.

In the 1980's I used to draw fantasy subway maps. Back then I thought I was the only one in the world doing that.



My hometown Subway Map. We're not there yet ! but who knows what will happen in the future. They need to build more dense areas within the city for this map to work.

NordikNerd, did you draw any Tram maps too? Or was that too Norrköping?

/wasn't there talks of an interurban (tram-train) line connecting the two a few years ago?

Well, I can always post this one, of course. It's been up here before (2006, 2008 and 2011), but I keep making (small) changes to the network. Somehow, it never gets boring

No tram maps yet, there used to be discussions about construction of a tram line in Linköping.

Linköping has much more urban sprawl than Norrköping so there is not really a need for trams and even less need for a subway system, so that's fantasies.

What do you get when you apply fantasy additions to an existing system...which is already a fantasy system to begin with? A fantasy fantasy map?

Anyway, the net result of a busy Saturday afternoon...

I was looking again to these restyled Mexico city metro maps that were posted last year.

This is not a fantasy network, but rather a fantasy design, since it's based on other cities' maps. All lines and services are real; non-subway services may or not appear in the map depending on the style.

The station name translation method is completely discretional....
Back then I said the last style, which resembles that of Madrid, was wrong. But now is right again, since they have (fortunately) reverted to previous style.

I will be making a new map soon. For the meantime, I'm working on shaping individual lines and stops. Below are the ones that I've finished shaping.

Yeah... that coordinate style was confusing, since it showed for example lines 4, 8 and 9 as they were parallel and running directly North-South when actually lines 4 and 8 run Southwest to Northeast before line 4 turns North, intersects line 8 and then turns West, while line 9 runs South to North before turning West to intersect lines 1 and 10.

I have to get around and update my Zaragoza tram proposal, as I have changed line 4 to run from the Southwest into city center and then taking over one of line 5 branchs; and then make the bus network of my version of One Island from Pokemon LeafGreen and FireRed. Meanwhile I put a sneak peek: It has a tram line too, with 9 stops. They are, West to East:
Playa de Aldera (Aldera Beach, for all Star Wars fans out there )
Hierro (Iron, at a street named after that element)
Terminal Marítima (i.e. the ferry terminal, with ferries departing for the other islands)
Trigemino (Mainly named after the catalan word for triplet)
José Carlos (The main square of the city. This is actually the 2nd stop I named "José Carlos" ever, after the one in Zaragoza that later I renamed in the Google Maps version but remains in my paper plans)
Archisiete (Archi7 is the Spanish name of Sevii islands...)
Navesar (Just a random name)
Cosencia (Named after the Italian city of Cosenza)
Miralcanal (A random name for a neighborhood which is located at the side of a strait)

And here is the rolling stock :
