you can read about it here, according to current plans, it's a standard gauge "high" speed line from Tallinn to Warsaw, via Pärnu, Riga and Kaunas with a V/max of 240kph

And onto Berlin
Unfortunately nearly all Estonian railways are only 1 track :facepalm:
This makes development more difficult

there's a bigger problem.....we currently have only broad, "russian" gauge railways, the single track lines aren't a issue cause there is hardly any traffic on it.

This is my fictional metro map for Riga. I don't know why Riga has not a metro, it's a very big city.....

Finland fits quite a lot of traffic on the single track line Tampere-Oulu.

Tallinn-Aegviidu - 56,7 km
Tallinn-Riisipere - 51,3 km
Keila-Paldiski - 20,8 km
Klooga-Klooga-Rand - 3,4 km

Total by this count 132,2 km.
Note that I did not make separate count of single and double tracks. On the other hand I did count the 2,1 km railway Tallinn-Lilleküla twice... but it looks like quadruple track anyway.

Many people posted on the same day...unbelievable.

kontaveit2012-Big visions.So,if you're part Estonian,what's your "main part"?And I asked updates from everyone.
Murakamisenior-I like the map...planed it nicely.Just that brown line that matches with the roads...change it,please.

I would try to integrate my Tallinn Metro with a new high-speed rail system.

Purple?Maybe,but I don't know the result,especially that it has to blend in with the mainly pink color of the map.

HARTride2012-Another wonderful single-line map!I hope the full map may be finished and posted as early as possible.Break a leg!
kontaveit2012-Estonian,Dutch,British and Ukranian? π=3.14159265
Don't worry,my metro lines are ALWAYS two way.Actually,I am also planning if the high-speed rail will be extended to the whole Baltic region. Your Balti Jaam 1 min. revo headway is kinda visionary...
I will show a sample of the HSR later.

Well the British is really Australian for about 4 generations
I love you for preserving this wonderful thread

Metros are of course 2 way but Estonia needs 2 way on every route IMO and electrification on all major routes.

Yes my plan is actually do-able but there are some requirements I will go through next time because it is late and I'm tired

The HSR sounds great Rail Baltica is of course wonderful but it doesn't cover major cities such as Tartu, Daugavpils and Vilnius so I thought a Rail Baltica Branch Line could be built Also as Balti Jaam isn't in downtown Tallinn maybe Maakri (CBD) or nearby is due for a big station. Then it could be like Vienna or Paris (kinda) with multiple main stations This excites me so

kontaveit2012-I don't know what you mean by preserve...I'm just posting constantly.But thanks for the love :P

I couldn't even have time to do my HSR sample because I have too much work time,but I think I can do it tommorow.

And,I got this feeling for multiple main stations like Vienna and Paris,but usually,I make a Grand Central Station like New York and Sydney(I think,but that's mainly commuter) in which all or almost all lines meet.

Everyone-I will wait for updates!

I didn't do that at Maakri because it means many trains will have to cross Old Town underground which would be very expensive Also connection via Tram (above ground) with Rotterman Quarter would be great/more important

Unfortunately,in my Tallinn Metro map,three lines cross the Old Town(as you said,is expensive).I will need to make a route edit through Linnahall and Rottermann Quarter. I just see some interesting or somewhat I consider major parts inside the Old Town(like the City Hall and some museum).

These lines are very commuter based, especially Kopli Maardu. Therefore Old Town stops are not necessarily significant unless in popular local areas. One major problem all Australian trains have is that to change lines you nearly always have to go into the city and changes are difficult. That's why it's great if Balti Jaam can limit the number of platforms Ideally there would be more than 1 intersection on each line but most importantly, all people have to be able to get to Maakri and Balti Jaam so if the line out to Haaberti terminated at Maakri and there was some interchange with the Yellow Line, then effectively all trains could easily reach Maakri except Red (Saku) Line which has a tram from Tondi to Ulemiste which could be built up to accommodate Nomme, Kriistine and Mustamae, 3 quite important districts in getting their wealthier (Nomme) residents to the CEO office
