Subject:The Real London (and other) Underground
Time:01:06 pm
Gacked from sbisson: Detailed rail maps for a lot of places in Europe, including London's underground, showing the real layout rather than a stylised map:

http://carto.metro.free.fr

Maps contain :
The real layout of the lines (metros & funiculars), tracks, ...
The position of the stations and their platforms.
Closed stations or never opened.
Tracks and tunnels of service and lines connection.
Workshops.
Extension projects of the network.
Tracks number, open dates of the sections
Disappeared tracks.
Outside connections
Many more...

Should be very useful for writers etc. since the stylised maps usually distort distance and layout to make the routes clearer.

There are also maps for Los Angeles and Montreal.

later - fiddlingfrog has pointed out that there's also an official TFL map of the London lines which is geographical rather than the stylised version, and shows things around the lines such as parks.

Montreal could be useful if I ever end up running Tribe 8 again! Thanks.

I have plans for the London map involving an A3 colour printer - I think I'll be using it for a game of my own at some point.
