Portland 2040



Here's Portland in 2040. Currently we have the Blue and Red lines and a portion of the Yellow line. The Orange I-205 line (now Green since I drew this map) is under construction and will be completed in 2009. The 4 regional rail lines (M1-M4) use existing rail ROWs and modern DMUs. M1, from Beaverton to Wilsonville, is under construction and will open in 2008. I'm creating another map to show the 8 streetcar lines that will link many of the close-in neighborhoods with the regional and light rail lines.

OK, that pic is showing up really small here. Does anybody here know how to resize the images so they're legible on this site? Please advise. Thanks.

MISC | Fantasy Network Maps

Did you ever draw a fantasy public transport network map - an entirely new net, or an extension of an existing one? Do you have tips for thinking up and drawing networks? Post it here - it doesn't matter whether it's tram, metro, express tram, light rail or whatever.

As a matter of fact, I have. I was thinking about starting a similar thread yesterday evening - seems you read my mind...

For a fantasy city that looks like New York, I designed this map:

Another fantasy map I made is this one:



...actually based on a very real 1968 plan for the Amsterdam metro. Never completed in this way, because the building of the only existing underground line (the current East Line) gave rise to quite some controversy: whole parts of the historic city centre had to be demolished in order to build this line. At present, the North-Southline is u/c - it's shown as 'line 1' on the map above (although only a small part of it will actually be built).

This is more of a fantasy map for Amsterdam, depicting lines I think the city needs:



...and this map is probably to remain a fantasy as well; it shows all current subway plans for NYC. There's no certainty for any of these projects to get the final go-ahead:

That's one awesome hell of a lot of work that went into those, especially the NY map... Thanks for posting

PS You know how to post images, don't you? Well I don't. When I click "Insert Image" a window appears telling me to "enter the text to be formatted". I don't know what this means or how it works - could you please help me?

This is one line I would like... just for my own personal convenience

The route goes:

Bromley South - Grove Park - Eltham - Woolwich Arsenal - South Greenwich
for Peninsula - Canary Wharf - Canada Water - London Bridge - Waterloo - Victoria - Paddington - Willesden Junction - Wembley Park

A quick tutorial:

1. Upload your images to an image hosting site, preferrably www.imageshack.us (you can either make an account, or start uploading directly. Images should be in .jpg (good for photos), .gif or .png (good for maps) format);

2. Go to the forum and insert the url (that's the long text in the "direct link to image"-tag in Imageshack) in the 'text to be formatted'. Another, easier way is this:

just type:

[img]x[/img]

where x is the url of your image.

That's the whole idea of posting pics. Just give it a try.

@ SE9: Looks like a bypass for the Jubilee Line to me... Another, easier way would be branch lines off the Jubilee: one branch Bromley-Canary Wharf in the SE, and another branch off Green Park following your route through Paddington and to Wembley. Paddington could do with a line that gets into the centre more directly, so it wouldn't be a bad idea.

Yep, the backbone from Waterloo to Greenwich Peninsula follows the Jubilee Line.

The only current problem is... its very long to travel between Victoria-Paddington / Paddington-Waterloo / Waterloo-Victoria... which are all major terminii.
