The metro system in Montréal

Sun Dec 25, 2016 11:19 am

Has an Orange Line, a Blue Line, a Green Line, and a Yellow Line, but no Red Line.

The system in Boston, see, has an Orange Line, a Blue Line, a Green Line, and a Red Line, but no Yellow Line.









That is all.

I am now waiting for our Delta boy to start a thread about pink subway lines and if they should be named after Power Ranger characters.

And Moscow has an Orange Line, a Blue Line, a Green Line, a Yellow Line, a Red Line, a Light Blue Line, a Brown Line, a Purple Line, a Grey Line, a Lime Line, a Turquoise Line, a Grey-Light Blue Line, a Red Circular Line.

… Though they are all also called by name and not necessarily color.

So what’s the point of the thread?

Meanwhile Vancouver has a blue line with two segments, a teal line with two segments, and a yellow line with a green-highlighted extension.

And Auckland has the Western, Southern, Eastern and Onehunga line.

Just about every metro system that's color coded has a blue line and a red line and a green line. Many have orange lines as well. DC has a Silver Line; it also has a Yellow Line. Those who believe, incorrectly, that Chicago's el is color-coded believe it has a "Red Line" (which is actually the Howard-Dan Ryan lines), a "Blue Line" (which is actually O'Hare-Congress), a "Green Line" (actually Lake Street-Englewood/Jackson Park), an "Orange Line," (Midway), a "Purple Line" (Evanston), a "Brown Line" (Ravenswood), "Pink Line" (Douglas), and a "Yellow Line" (which is instead correctly called the Skokie Swift). I do wonder how much longer the cta is going to keep up this "everything is color coded" song and dance. The lines are not color-coded. The lines have NAMES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

But of those that are IN FACT color coded, the encyclopedic list of colors used seems to include

Red
Blue
Orange
Green
Yellow
Silver (DC)
Gold (Pasadena)
Violet (yes, "Violet!") - Delhi

and those who labor under the delusions the CTA would have them labor under will helplessly include Brown, Purple, and Pink on their deluded versions of the list.

I don't know of any system that has a Black Line, or a White Line, or a Beige Line, or a Grey Line, or a Chartreuse Line.

Or Turquoise.

London has both Black (the Northern Line) and Turquoise (the Victoria Line) although no one ever refers to them by their colours

A white line would be hard to see on a map, wouldn*t it?

See, when >I< was there, the Q ran along 6th Avenue even though the on-board signage had a black letter in a yellow circle or diamond, like the N and R trains. I guess the Q previously ran along Broadway, eh?

I would take the Q to Roosevelt Island a lot. It was my escape "from" the city. :boggled:

In Paris the combined métro/RER system has plenty of colors, however those are just used to make the maps readable, only letters (RER) and numbers (métro) are used to name them.

NYC Subway runs the gamut of colors.

It has several gray lines (42nd St Shuttle, Franklin Ave Shuttle, Rockaway Shuttle. The J/Z Train is Brown on the map. The G train is Lime Green. The 7 Train is Purple. When (if) the 2nd Ave subway opens to its full length, it will be called the T Train and will be turquoise (for now, the Q train is running on Phase 2 of 2nd Ave (63rd St to 96th St) and runs on Broadway with the N/R/W south of 63rd St to Coney Island).

Yes but no one in New York says, "We're taking the Brown Line" or "We're taking the Purple Line;" they say, "We're taking the J" or "We're taking the 7."

I'm talking about official designations, see.

To be fair, nobody in this thread really knows what you're talking about, lol. Your opening post was...well...vague would be an understatement.

New York City's G train is the most adorable thing ever. If I'm getting on the thing, I'm either on my way to getting really screwed up or I already am. It's always a good time.

Remembered something but took me a while to find it:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Red_Line_%28MBTA%29

for the fun of it:
http://www.c82.net/spectrum/

All the other public transit arrangements have either names ( like Victoria, Circular, ... )
or are named for destinations/quarters or just have numbers (1,11,12) or type designator + number ( U2, S1 )

Coloured Transit Maps didn't start before the 1930ties ( George Dow for London Transport ):
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Transit_map#History
everybody else followed suit over time.

My guess would be that colour_named_ lines weren't in scope before Coloured Transit Maps
had taken a firm hold.

Just check Wikipedia with "$colour Line" for $colour substituted from a range of short color names.

Tonight I have learned that Bangalore, India,

A) is actually called "Bengaluru," and
2) has a "Namma Metro" which has only a Purple Line and a Green Line. It thus becomes the only color-coded metro without a Blue Line, that I am aware of.
