Caption to unofficial topological map[edit]

I've corrected the caption to focus on the map's more geographically correct locations of the lines rather than stations. By representing all stations as points, this map in fact conceals information about the true geometry and geographic extent of stations (in particular how lines and platforms relate there) which the current "Standard Tube Map" carefully — albeit schematically — represents. Examine Euston, Bank/Monument, or Paddington (despite continuing the historical struggle there by showing the Bakerloo platforms north, rather than south of the H&C platforms, a situation that was to be rectified in the "2016" map) for example.

Macdonald Gill's Wonderground map[edit]

Interesting article on the BBC Bews site, it stated: "Macdonald Gill's primary coloured Wonderground map was published early in 1914 and was hung at every station. A mixture of cartoon, fantasy, and topological accuracy, it was an instant hit with the travelling public."

Updated map[edit]

The map is dated May 2013 but the latest actual version is as of December 2014. Should we try to get the latest version uploaded into this article? --TBM10 (talk) 12:26, 1 January 2015 (UTC)

In what ways do they differ? --Redrose64 (talk) 09:48, 2 January 2015 (UTC)
Major service updates of Tottenham Court Road and Bond Street. The overall style is mostly the same but I spot few trivial graphical flaws/glitches in the newer version. -- Sameboat - 同舟 (talk · contri.) 11:33, 3 January 2015 (UTC)

New map, May 2015[edit]

The new tube map, as of May 2015, seems considerably different. It is available on the TFL website but the downloadable version seems not to be available yet. Additional things on the new map are several new London Overground lines, the addition of TFL Rail (future Crossrail) in a unique colour and the removal of the Emirates Line. A few changes to the angles and straight lines also seem apparent (see the Central line for exaple). I guess, once a downloadable version is available (next week maybe as thats when TFLRail starts) the page should be updated.--202.111.49.131 (talk) 15:32, 27 May 2015 (UTC)

SVG glitch in the TfL official site only. Those flaws are not present in the formal PDF which is already available for public downlaod.[1] -- Sameboat - 同舟 (talk · contri.) 22:13, 27 May 2015 (UTC)
