NX Express

My Fantasy Subway Map & Track Maps

Recommended Posts

Hmm...Version 12!!!

 

Changes:

(L)(U) cut back to Canarsie.

(7) cut back to Astoria-Ditmars Blvd.

(Z) rerouted. Here is the alignment:

Starting from 59 Street (N)(R)(NX):

Go via Sea Beach to Kings Highway

Go via Kings Highway crosstown to Utica Avenue

Go via the LIRR line to Ward's Island.

Go via a new underground line, as shown in the map.

Terminates at 149 Street-Grand Concourse.

 

 

 

I think that the U should be the local and the J should be the express. Also, I think that there should be a J diamond that goes express from Bway Junction to Jamaica.

I made the (U) the express... for a reason that disappeared with my last update. Would it be better if the (J) was express, even if there was no <J>?

The J is better for the express because it is a longer route. Think about it, the distance from Jamaica to Broadway Junction is longer than the distance from Canarsie to Broadway Junction. The J diamond would be express east of Bway Junction (in addition to west of it, like the (J).

I guess that could work..........next time I make a major change, I'll add it, since I don't feel like reuploading now.

It would be cool if there was a train that ran at an even lower level of the Verrezano Bridge.

 

The approach ramp would be a mile wrong :curses-at-Robert-Moses-who-made-the-bridge-that-way:

Oh well, I stole your idea.

 

:cry::cry::cry:

 

I'm just kidding.:P

About Robert Moses: He was also the one who was responsible for the Dodgers leaving Brooklyn. Sure, Walter gets the heat all the time, but Robert denied Walter a place for the Dodgers to stay. That forced no option but to leave. So, thanks to Moses, the Dodgers left, no more elevateds, and no chance of getting a train across the Verrazano.

I like this map, is the (U) underground, elevated or cut?, the same question as the other guy.. another question, how come you took the (L) & (Z) lines off kings plaza, now a bus serves the route you cut?

Since the (U) follows the Bay Ridge RR for the majority of the way, the layout is like this:

 

From 59 Street to Kings Highway - open cut, via Sea Beach (N) line

From Kings Highway to Utica Avenue - underground, via Kings Highway crosstown

From Utica Avenue to Ward's Island - open cut with one tunnel, via Bay Ridge RR

From Ward's Island to 149 Street-Grand Concourse - underground

The (U) to the (3) provides this connection. Two routes so close together are not necessary.

thanks for making a "triboro" line and 125th st line.

 

You are welcome, rockdove.

 

Any other criticisms? If not, I will consider this my ultimate fantasy map.

…maybe it's out of respect for the way you designed your map. Most people reserve their opinion for blatantly stupid designs, but leave room for creative freedom. I might not like the fact that your service options might be the cause of delays (where there is a lot of track switching), or that no services are available to people in central Bronx (Third Avenue line), but that's something you're entitled to.
