I agree! It's a great map! I made my second draft map of my Norfolk Subway through Beno Metro Map Creator. But the interface is too small to include all of the stations.

The rolling stock used on Line 15 are rubber-tyred and are very similar to that of the MP 05 from Paris.
Cool!All I'm waiting from you is the full map and more single line maps.

Yeah, I've seen your map now, I posted above this!
Doesn't that sound mean?Or saddening?Errr...starting from those,I can start fights already!(I'm aware I said that again)

Promised map.



Full Size:



It's actually based on Paris, Madrid and Tokyo commuter rail systems, adding an easy-spotting color wheel design. (This color logic is also featured in subway and light rail lines)

Line 9 Norfolk is finished!

https://maps.google.com/maps/ms?msid...11661,0.676346

Had to re-allign Line 5, just slightly. One station change (you will not see it here, but it will be on the final map).

https://maps.google.com/maps/ms?msid...11831,0.676346

And here's Line 10. Line 10 has four branches, similar to how Line 7 of Paris is structured.

https://maps.google.com/maps/ms?msid...10661,0.676346

Next will be Line 7, followed by Line 1. The Line 2 and Line 6 (beltway half-loops) will be last.

All finished with the individual line maps!

Line 1:
https://maps.google.com/maps/ms?msid...11417,0.676346

Beltway Loop - Lines 2 & 6:
https://maps.google.com/maps/ms?msid...77898,0.169086

Line 7:
https://maps.google.com/maps/ms?msid...6faf1e72&msa=0

Peninsula Subway Map:


Uploaded with ImageShack.us

Update on Rolling Stock:
*Lines 1, 3, 4, 6, 7, 7A, and 10 are rubber-tyred lines.
*Lines 2, 5, 8, and 9 are steel-wheeled lines.

*Lines 1, 3, 4, 6, 7, and 10 all run the MPN (Material Pneumatic Norfolk) 1995 stock, which are based off the Paris MP 89. These trains are configured with 9 cars per train.
*Line 7A uses the the MPN 1982 stock, which was the original rubber-tyred rolling stock along Lines 7 and 10. These trains are configured with 4 cars per train.
*Lines 2, 5, 8, and 9 use the MIN (Material Iron Norfolk) 2001 stock, which are based off of the R142 rolling stock from New York City. However, they have the appearance of the MF 2001 trains from Paris. These trains are configured with 9 cars per train.
*All trains, except the MPN 1982 stock on Line 7A, are articulated.

I discovered a few hours ago that Kolothos posted two maps on this thread:http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showth...1102129&page=2 on post 27 and 34(34 is more from a map he posted here).

Since I'd like a South American city on my metro map,I've got a "representative" from each country except Guyana.Try to suggest.
The list from north to south:
Barranquilla,Colombia
Valencia,Venezuela
Paramaribo,Suriname
Guayaquil,Ecuador
Fortaleza,Brazil
Arequipa,Peru
Santa Cruz,Bolivia
Asuncion,Paraguay
Montevideo,Uruguay
Concepcion,Chile
Ushuaia,Argentina


So,anything wonderful to post?
