Any of you ever make fictional transit maps? I'm currently working on a map of the Northeast US in an alternate reality where passenger rail was supported in the same way it was in the UK in our timeline, with most of the lines traced over current and former rights of way. Clearly (since there are orphaned stations all over the Virginias, and a multitude of missing stations in New York and Pennsylvania) it's a long way from being done.

>>
>>1315074
No, that's a completely different guy. He was the one to actually inspire me to make this one, actually. I started in New England, which is why it's the most thoroughly covered, and decided "fuck it, I'm doing the whole Northeast!" I now realize, as I start on the line between Schenectady and Binghamton, several months after I started on the rest of the Northeast, that I may be in over my head on this one.

Is extending the blue line on the T to watertown a stupid idea? Everyone wants the blue and red to connect at Charles and then keep going and I just feel like it's a logical place to extend service to in that direction.
>>
>>1315462
It's not a bad idea at all. However, extending it via Cambridge is a bad idea. Allston/Brighton needs an alternative to the Green B, and I was considering sending the Blue along the Worcester Line ROW to BU where it branches to Watertown Square under US-20, and serving Riverside via Newtonville, still along the Worcester Line ROW, giving the 3 CR stations in Newton more regular service

I tried to re-design RTD's bus system in Denver. I made a thread about it, though the system got mixed reviews.

So when you open Google Earth, you have a tab labeled "My Places." In the upper bar above the map there's a series of buttons. The ones of importance are the "Add Placemark" and "Add Line" buttons. Left click to place line points, right click or backspace/delete button on the keyboard to delete the point. Go nuts.

Okay I've been fucking around in this program,
still haven't found out how to bend lines since our train lines aren't straight between stations

I mapped and expanded Vancouver's transit lines
Here is my extension of the Expo Line into the Fraser Valley - through Surrey (King George + Fleetwood) to Langley (Centre),
southward I sent to White Rock (Centre) via Newton
from Langley, I mapped a connection north via Corvalth to Maple Meadows (currently a regular train station on the West Coast Express [not sure if it should connect there at all, but I was bothered by the lack of North-South connections on the existing grid and even with future plans)

>>1318678
this is my westward Millennium Line extension to UBC
one that's been discussed A LOT - in fact, Google Maps lists a few stations (VGH, UBC, West PG) that don't even exist yet...mysterious shit. anyway, I incorporated those along with Arbutus (& 4th St.), Fir (& Broadway), through an exising station at City Hall, and a Kingsgate station (at Kingsway & Broadway) where there's discussions to redevelop the current mall, finally connecting with the current line at VCC Clark (I'm thinking this will be underground)

this is a massive east-west line, and transposed with other lines (including one's I made) shows the lack of north-south connections I alluded to
>>
>>1318683

Canada Line + extension to Delta/Tsawwassen. added stations at Ladner, South Delta (theres a bus loop there, but I get that Tsawwassen Mills mall is near yet not near enough), to the ferry terminal via Richmond/Brighouse

I wish you could break down and reuse all the materials from those two stations on Sea Island (SIC and Templeton) cause theres just no fucking reason for them. also, theres no connection between Richmond and Surrey (despite being neighbours) outside of South Van/New West (Expo Line). so many damn considerations.

as for the lines to the ferry terminals, since its very determinate destination, they would run at a different frequency than inner city lines - like every 10 minutes, compared to every 30 minutes (plus traffic) on the bus. perhaps a different gauge and model of car for increased seating/storage (like for luggage)

Any post-MGH extension of the Blue Line will all but certainly have to hit at least Kendall via a tunnel under the charles, just because selling a direct connection between Kendall and the Airport, East Boston, and whatever gets built at Suffolk is the single most useful thing that a Blue Line Extension can accomplish.

From there, it makes sense to hook left and tunnel under the Grand Junction ROW, which MassDOT already owns, and would be painless to tunnel under. If you want to add bus connectivity, drop in a station at the Mass Ave/Vassar Street interchange to serve the MIT dorms, Novartis, Astrazenaca, and all of the new commercial development happening north of Vassar and west of Mass Ave. From there, continue the BLX under the GJ, and split it roughly at the MIT Simmons Hall dormitory, with one spur breaking left under the MIT athletic fields, and the other spur continuing on via the GJ to West Station.

The "south branch" of the BLX can then tunnel under the MIT athletic fields and back under the Charles to Kenmore Square, where it continues under Brookline Ave with a stop at the old Sears building, before stopping right in the middle of the Longwood Medical area, with a station built under Brookline Ave between Longwood Ave and Francis Street. Now, in addition to connecting MIT and Kendall to the airport and Suffolk Downs, you've just connected Harvard Medical School/BI/BWH with MGH via a 1-seat subway trip, unifying the two halves of Partners Healthcare and the Harvard Medical-Industrial Complex, while putting them both within a transfer at Kendall of the main Harvard campus as well as MIT. In addition, you've just unloaded the Green Line Central Subway with a 5-stop rapid transit ride between Kenmore and Government Center that will take half the time as the same trip via Hynes/Copley/Arlington/Boylston/Park on the Green Line.
>>
>>1325474
Now, the other, northern spur, which continues on to West Station via the GJ ROW, can turn north after West and head towards a station at Barry's Corner/Lower Allston, then head west under Western Ave to another crossing under the Charles, from which it continues on to Watertown Center via a tunnel under Arsenal Street with a stop at the Arsenal Mall redevelopment. Once at Watertown, it can stop at a transit hub with the trackless trollies, or if you're really feeling fancy, it can continue under that old abandoned rail ROW that roughly parallels Pleasant Street to a terminus at Waltham Center, or even an extension out to Route 128 or the Polaroid redevelopment via Main Street/Rt 117.

Yeah, but they ripped up the tracks just like they did with the Arborway part of the E line. Those lines are never coming back. I think re-imagining the service as a rapid transit line is more likely (assuming any of it is likely at all). Plus, Upper Allston needs service badly. I can't get to The Breakfast Club from the green line and that's a disgrace.

Yeah, the Blue Line should run to Watertown via Cambridge and Allston, and to Longwood Medical or Brookline Village via Kenmore.

Though I will say that if the T is going to extend the Blue Line to Lynn on the north side, that they should just bite the bullet and push it out all the way to Salem because the ROW is wide enough for it, it'd only be 2 or 3 more stops, and the density is absolutely there. Furthermore, with low-voltage overhead catenary, the Blue Line can handle grade crossings as well as the Green Line, so you wouldn't even have to spend money on grade separation and the only real expensive part would be the station under Salem.
>>
>>1325772
This was my original idea, but pragmatically, the T is going to have a far cheaper and easier time digging under either state land like the GJ or the Charles riverbed or MIT's athletic fields than it ever will have digging under Beacon Hill or Back Bay.

The other route I had for the Blue Line was going under Charles Street and then running under Commonwealth Ave to Kenmore and then Longwood. The Longwood branch is the key, if only because if you built the Blue Line platforms under the Brookline Avenue between the Kenmore platforms and the Yawkey CR platforms, you could re-name Yawkey to Kenmore and make it all part of one gigantic 3-line station like Park+Downtown Crossing.

If your goal is a single seat ride from Longwood to Logan, I've already got that covered with a Yellow Line loop, not unlike The Tube's Circle Line, or Moscow's Koltsevaya Line.
>>
>>1326076
This also relieves congestion at Park, State, Gov Ctr, & DTX, as people trying to get from Riverside to Harvard or Logan to Forest Hills can avoid the Downtown Quad
>>
>>1326078
If you want to see all the lines and branches, I can post that and where they go.

I mean, my expansions are far from economic at Boston's current size. If we ever surge to the size of Chicago or Houston (somehow), it'll be more than worth it. On the other hand, Glasgow is of a comparable population with a circle line in the city, so who knows how economic such a line would be

So there are 6 different lines. Red, Orange, Green, and Blue already exist and have been expanded. Indigo and Yellow are completely new. These will get their own posts because my descriptions are too fucking long for just one.

So this is partially expanded northwards as a part of the 1975 Haymarket North extension, but only through Melrose, as CR services have been expanded north of Melrose Highlands.

Indigo Line:
Brand new line, proposed to convert the Fairmount line to DMU service like Paris's RER or Germany's S-Bahn networks, but I converted it to rapid transit and gave it a northward expansion
A Branch: Northgate Shopping Center to Dedham Center. Functionally replaces/restores Charlestown El, Atlantic Ave El, Fairmount Line, and part of the Dedham branch from Readville to Dedham Center. Dedham Corp. Ctr ahs been renamed to Dedham Corp. Park to avoid confusion.
B Branch: Lynn Central Square to Black Falcon Terminal. Uses the old B&M Saugus Branch & New Haven Track 61

Let me know if they're a bit hard to see, I can make them a bit easier to see for you

So I just counted every station I have, spread out over 22 states, provinces, and federal districts, and I have 2,577 stations so far. That's more than all of the UK and Ireland combined...
What am I doing with my life?

this is the current system. Why wouldn't a city of 32k people need a cool new tram?

They are hard to see, make the lines bigger please.

Why have I never heared of this place? Must be among the five largest cities in the state ;^)
I like the concept. East Germany has a whole bunch of town tram systems, and they all work. All settlements above 20 000 people should have trams.
Why didn't you incorporate the park railroad in the system?

How did you make the map/lines/design?

>>1331174
My guess is Adobe Illustrator. Am I right?

It's all done in inkscape, but any vector graphic program will do. The background is made from stitched together openstreetmap screenshots.

UPDATE:
Finished the Southern Tier in New York, two other lines to Scranton (from Philly via Allentown and Hoboken via Morristown), added a line from Buffalo to London, added lines through the Lehigh and Cumberland Valleys, added a metric shit-ton of branches on the Delmarva peninsula, finished the lines from Pittsburgh to DC, and started on the lines from DC to Greensboro through Charlottesville

… that's not accounted for on my source map, which means I have to go digging through USGS archives for the route. What have I gotten myself into?

I took some time away from the national network to expand SEPTA.
The Market-Frankford Line has been expanded to the Franklin Mills in the Northeast, and given a branch on both ends to the Navy Yard and Roxboro in the Northwest
The Broad Street line has been expanded south to the airport and Tinicum via the Navy Yard, and the Ridge spur extended to Whitman in South Philly. It also was extended north to Bustleton in the Northeast and Laverock just outside the city
Many subway-surface and suburban trolley routes were restored: Routes 30, 38, 42, 103, and 104 have been reestablished as trolley routes. Surface routes have been started but not yet finished. 15 has been extended to Frankford via Bridesburg, and I plan on bringing Routes 23, 56, 60, and 6 back, and maybe doing something with the abandoned Reading Terminal viaduct
PATCO Speedline has been incorporated into the SEPTA network, and expanded with branches to Maple Shade, Overbrook, and Bala Cynwyd. Thoughts?
