Old Subway Map scans

Recommended Posts

I really want scans of old subway maps. I have looked at old threads, but the Scans or pictures of maps aren't available. Can someone help me get some subway map scans. I especially would like some from 1979 to 2001.

Thanks, Sorry if I inconvinience anyone.

No, real copies of the maps. Those are nice redos but I would like scans of actual subway maps, like in older threads.

I'll see what I can dig up on my computer when I get home later.

Ask and ye shall receive. Eventually. Let me preface this by saying these aren't my scans. I just downloaded them over the years and unfortunately don't remember where and who I got these from.

EDIT 15:47: You know, I'm really starting to dislike photobucket. These scans were of much higher quality than is available online.

Great maps. I wonder how Coney Island supported six services in the early 80s. The older maps look more informative too. Especially with the Express service.

Thanks, I really appreciate it. I think the MTA should bring back the old strip maps and revert to the old style maps. What services from then do you want them to bring back.

Lance, thanks again.

It wasn't six services at a time. IT was still for the most part four; as the (D) was off hours only, and the M was weekdays, with the ‹Q› or QB as a rush hour special of redesignated M's.

That's right. Some of them did come from this site before the hack and switchover to the new forum last year. Thanks for reminding me.

Completely unrelated to "old" subway map scans, but does anyone know if a good quality scan/PDF of the 2008 Vignelli map exists? (The one they're using for Weekender, for clarification).

I got 1995, 1997, with some service changes (don't remember which one), 1998 or 1999 with the Williamsburg Bridge changes, and everything else after that.

Is it possible for you to scan any of them. Thanks, and nice collection!

I will be adding all these maps and more to the Downloads section of this website really soon.  Stay tuned.

It would be nice to see Bronx bus maps too. Just a friendly suggestion. ;)
