Talk:Orange Line (MBTA)/Historical maps

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

This is a former draft, used by User:Pi.1415926535 to work on a series of historical route diagram templates. After completion, they were moved to Orange Line (MBTA)#Historical routes.

Since there's been no objection in three days to my query here, I'm undertaking a bit of a project. The current Orange Line route diagram template is somewhat confusing - it has the old Charlestown Elevated and Washington Street Elevated as show/hide options, which makes them look like branches rather than mainline routes, and it doesn't show the Atlantic Avenue Elevated at all.

What I'll be doing here is making a series of roughly five route diagram templates, with shared common sections:

  • 1901-1908: Charlestown Elevated, Atlantic Ave. Elevated, Tremont Street Subway, Washington Elevated to Dudley
  • 1908-1938: Charlestown, Washington Street (to Forest Hills), and Atlantic Ave elevateds; Washington Street Subway
  • 1938-1975: Charlestown and Washington Street elevateds; Washington Street Subway
  • 1975-1987: Washington Street Elevated; Haymarket North extension; Washington Street Subway
  • 1987-present: Southwest Corridor; Haymarket North extension; Washington Street Subway (use current rdt with modifications)

The templates will be on their individual pages, but I'll post them here. Once they're complete, I'll ask around for the okay to move them to a section, either on the main Orange Line page or its own page.

It'll take a few days to get it done, and anyone is welcome to help. Pi.1415926535 (talk) 00:40, 26 March 2011 (UTC)

Finally getting a chance to get back to this. Expecting completion soon. Pi.1415926535 (talk) 03:29, 16 July 2011 (UTC)
All 5 now completed. I will have some folks who know more than I check for errors. Pi.1415926535 (talk) 05:19, 16 July 2011 (UTC)
