Winnipeg

Our first (and only) venture into Canada brings us to Winnipeg, Manitoba's capital and largest city, located at the convergence of the Red and Assiniboine Rivers. Our routes provide us connections to intercity trains and the international airport. I've added a light rail line along Main St and Broadway to connect to the capitol buildings and a new northern rail terminal at Chinatown.

Lines
  • Green: 23 miles, 14 stations
  • Cyan: 20 miles, 7 stations
  • Yellow: 23 miles, 12 stations
  • Blue: 15.5 miles, 6 stations
  • Purple: 15.5 miles, 12 stations
  • Red: 18 miles, 8 stations

Hartford

Connecticut's capital is on the verge of getting real life commuter rail. The NHHS Rail, or New Haven - Hartford - Springfield line, will connect to Metro North in the south on the Long Island Sound and stretch all the way into Massachusetts when it opens in 2018. While it essentially duplicates the Amtrak shuttle train, it includes a few additional stops and nearly quadruples frequency.  This map adds three additional lines, with numerous connections to Amtrak, Metro North, and Bradley Airport.
