I'm sorry, but the loop on the green line really bugs me. Try making it more like a horseshoe. Or add another line to cover some of that area.

The station where the green line meets the red line is at an elevation of 145 meters, and the station where it meets the brown line is at 95 meters. The station in the middle of the loop is at 190 meters. There is no way to cover this area of high population density in another way. I took the idea from Naples' Line 1.

Have you considered deep bore stations? Just have the station way underground.

Probably cheaper than a loop.

Fantasy map of fantasy city, for a change. Work still in progress. The extent of the network that's to be mapped is shown below (click for larger version):

I like how the dark red line aligns with the city!

But why can't one transfer from the dark red line to the light green line at the point where it diverges?

I tried to put a bit of planning realism into the network. If you take a look at London or NYC, for example, there aren't transfers at points where you'd expect them to be. Be it because of a history of competition between lines, planning short-sightedness or geographic constraints.

Ah, your good old New York City-like city. Nice to see it is still alive.

And so does Dairon, my "shanzhai" version of Shanghai. Since no metro additions have taken place in 2016 I decided to add several other types of public transport in addition to the maglev (which is not shown in the metro maps but is there, running back and forth between Rosales Pearson and the Tolosana airport), namely a rubber-tyred tram intersecting line 2 at Walqa and Universidad Politecnica, a trolleybus rapid transit line (line 71) running parallel and to the South of line 2 from near Ascaso station and airport to the Riverside Promenade (Dairon's version of the Bund), as well as a couple standard tram lines under construction in the Nolanda district in the Southwest. All of this have real life equivalents, much like it happens with the metro.

Far away from any metro system - in Siem Reap, Cambodia, I found this neat fun map of "Angkorground", indeed useful to navigate the many temples of Angkor:

Hello!
I've done this - a scheme for a better SKR (basically S-Bahn) system for the Upper Silesian aglomeration (sometimes refered to as Katowice aglomeration). Currently we have the "orange" line from Tychy to Sosnowiec. Here I've extended the line, but also added 4 others. The system uses preexisting tracks, except for Miasteczko Śląskie - Pyrzowice part of lines 4 and 5 (which is planned to be built anyway). There are a few stations that do not exist in the real life, and few have their names changed.

Fantasy Map for Melbourne Tram Network. Sorry about lack of labels, and the wonky North - South Routes 38, 46 and 72. If anyone has any questions let me know. Routes are colour coded by depot (some shared depot info is missing)



Dark Blue: Essendon Depot
Red: Brunswick Depot
Grey: Southbank Depot
Green: Camberwell Depot
Light Blue: Kew Depot
Yellow: Malvern Depot
Orange: Glenhuntly Depot
Pink: Preston Workshops

edit: will try to find image hosting in text
edit 2: got it working

Have you considered a joint Krakow - Katowice International Airport, perhaps West of Trzebinia and North of the A4? That could be a fantastic hub in your regional network, expanding it of course to Lesser Poland which seems natural give the two regions relationship. That could develop into a truly intercontinental airport and be a regional multi-modal hub as well.

^Ain't gonna happen. There already is an airport in Kraków - Balice. Let's keep at least semi-realistic. Also - both Kraków and cities of Silesia have other expenses. And I'm not even mentioning the crazyman's (I mean the gov't) plan to build an enormous airport in the middle of Poland . And there are several more reasons for which I really don't want to connect Lesser Poland and Silesia.

So, this is a very fantastical rendition of Seoul's, Incheon's, and the entire Sudogwon metro area's lines. I focused on providing a lot more connectivity between lines, as well as greatly densifying service in satellite cities and within Seoul south of the Han river. Also included (in grey) are intercity and express commuter lines, some of which mimic planned expansions for rail lines in the megalopolitan area (the GTX in particular), or are reflective of plans for the future, others still of which are just fantasy. I started with the schematic map from urbanrail.net, and embellished and modified heavily as I went along. This is the product of many years' work, but there are still some errors (missing station names, names covered by lines; this is all just kind of a fun thing for me, nothing super serious)

Given Korea's and Seoul's (in particular) population density, I think that rail ought to be far more dominant as a method of transit (along with walking and cycling). Tell me what you think.

When completed it may have at least 5000 kilometers of tracks, making it by far the largest metro network ever posted here, and will reach every one of the 731 municipalities of Aragon, from the largest cities (The largest by far is Zaragoza, followed by Huesca at 1/13 of its population, then Teruel if it exists at all, then Calatayud and Utebo which is actually a suburb of Zaragoza) to the smallest villages (as of the latest estimates there is a triple tie between Bagües, Balconchan -both in Zaragoza province- and Salcedillo -in Teruel province- at 13 inhabitants each). It is still far from complete, though, and I don't know when I'll finish it.
I'm still working in this. I hope to have it finished this summer. An update to the least populated municipalities: As of the latest estimates it is now Bagües alone, with 12 inhabitants (And I have already connected it to the system).
