These are three  tunnels (plus tunnels for railroad). 




Actually these may give a more correct tunnel-centric representation than line maps. Compare the Oslo map:




with the line map:

All lines share the common tunnel on the bottom. The top drawing is correct, while the bottom may be read as having more tunnels than there are.

They are worth a look btw. Here's Stockholm. Can you say "Single point of failure"? I knew you could (that will improve in a couple years from now).
Such graphs can be deceptive though. It could just as easily mean three tunnels and stations that are close to each other as three lines that go through one tunnel.

Were I a slightly different kind of person, I would've squealed for joy over the Bayerischer Rundfunk website. While I'm used to workarounds to get the content I like in a sane format,[1] their website comes with built-in download links for your convenience. The sheer quantity of choices is somewhat excessive, but why not I suppose.

On a separate note, Arte destroyed their website. It's borderline impossible to find nice things.
Mostly through youtube-dl.

The smaller Prague network avoids that



These icons don't include commuter rail (e.g. S-bahn) and tram networks (except one for Hong Kong New Territories, but that a cute one). Thus e.g. the Copenhagen network is pretty bare at the moment. Even including railroad Stockholm has a single point of failure (and often transfer), the Central Station stop.

Any ideas what happened?
Yep! Dropbox killed off the use of public folders, thus making all links to them no longer work.

True. I think. Hard to remember really, but most likely.

Until recently Glasgow was among the few cities that have shrunk in size, while most cities have grown, many by a lot.

Anyway the same guy as with the Chinese metro growth has made mini maps for most metro networks in the world, including Glasgow (sorted by English name of country, then city, so Glasgow is near the bottom).
