Fantasy Metro/Subway for Norfolk, VA – Part 1

This will be the first in a series of blog posts revolving around my fictional transit systems. I was originally going to begin with my Mushroom Kingdom fantasy transit system, but I still have to make a few changes to the map before I can upload it.

Instead, I will be focusing this post on a completed fantasy subway system map for the Hampton Roads, VA area. As I mentioned in many areas of my blog, as well as through my various Facebook posts, Norfolk, VA already has a light rail line (which by the way turned one year old this past September). However, I started to think to myself “what if they had an extensive subway system?” So I began to create a fantasy subway system map on Google Maps that would serve all of the major areas in around Norfolk and Virginia Beach. The composition of the system is somewhat based off the Paris Metro in Paris, France. I even chose the color of each subway line to match the colors from the Paris subway (Line 1 on both systems is represented with a sunshine yellow/orange color for instance).

You can view my Google map by selecting the link below.

As you will notice, the system has 10 different subway lines (plus one shuttle line, called Line 7A). I will update this post shortly to describe further where each line travels to.
