Those two maps obviously represent dueling ideas for the Changsha Metro. It's pointless to look for consistencies.
So nothing's final with the number of lines? :eek:hno:

^^ 88 stops in 180 km is not to be sneezed at.

I got these figures from "Transit Maps of the World" by Mark Ovenden. The figures are five years old now, so some may need updating.

  • Washington DC: 86 stops, 170 km
  • St. Petersberg: 54 stations, 103 km
  • Osaka: 121 stations, 128 km
  • Munich: 96 stations, 90 km
  • Mexico City: 151 stations, 176 km
  • Buenos Aires: 63 stations, 50 km

- just taken arbitrarily from "Zone 2" (i.e. Chapter 2: second order systems).

^^ The numbers in the right column add up to 101 stops, not 88. There's a mistake in the table. The total mileage is correct, though.

These problems should be reasonably easy to sort out.

On the first map in posting #1, there are:

  • Blue line: 18 independent stations
  • Red Line: 20 indepent stations
  • Junction Stations: 1

Hence there are 39 stations, or if you count the junction station twice, 40.

On the second map in posting #1, there are:

  • 1: (Green) : 19 indepenent stations
  • 2: (Red) : 26 independent stations
  • 3: (Pink): 26 Indepent stations
  • 4: (Blue): 41 indepent stations
  • 5: (Orange): 25 indepent stations
  • Junction stations:15

Hence: total stations: 152
or, if you choose to count interchange stations twice: 167

However the later map (posting #9) indicates something different. I presume the blue or cyan terminals are railway yards, not stations.
