New York City Subway Track Maps
By Peter Dougherty. Copyright © 1996, 2001 by Peter Dougherty. Maps updated 2007 by Matthew Shull, 2010 by Patrick Michel.
This is a collection of track maps, showing the physical tracks making up the subway system. These are not intended to be route maps, showing the logical routings of the passenger trains, although the individual tracks are color coded, and route indicators are provided on the maps, to help the viewer figure out what's what. These are based on the service patterns in the late 1990s. It's not likely the track maps will be updated with new colors just to reflect new train routings over the existing tracks. For a current route map, look here: New York City Subway Route Map by Michael Calcagno.
NOW AVAILABLE! 2012 Edition! By popular demand, our track maps are now available in book format. The wire-bound book will include all of the track maps, plus track designations, signal information, and more, not shown on the web versions. Follow me for more information.
