I think you can copy routemaps in the wikipedia in edit page and change it to your own desire in OGF wiki. Tough work but it could be perfect though

There are a group of templates in this wiki that will replicate exactly this, but they made/make the wiki page load very slow (probably because of all the bitmap images). I've tried the same thing a year or some ago, after which the entire wiki dropped out for some minutes every time I previewed the page. I've tried to fix the templates a few times, but without succes.

I don't know the current state of the template and the working of it, but there is this page using that template without visible problems. It seems to work, although it's a quite stubborn template.

You can use the {{BS-map}} template to make these. But I would take heed on trying too much and crash the wiki again 😂..

@oneofbeatlefan copying from from Wikipedia does sadly not work

@PortCal Thank you for the link, that helps me a lot! hopefully I will not crash the wiki 😂

I had made this page, a long time ago:

It uses a similar set of templates taken from Italian or Spanish wikipedia (I think - I don't really remember).

Note that since I am redesigning my capital, this page is obsolete and will need to be redesigned once the new routing for the various metro lines is worked out.

@Luciano it (the route map on the map) looks weird with that line danggling there in the void.

I hoped the templates work somehow, then I can write about some of my metro lines in the future.

It seems to work just fine at the moment. I tested a bit last night. But I hope the diagrams could also be a little more complex. For that, BS3, BS4, etc. and a few other templates like BS-overlap should all be working good too. Let's see how far we can get.

I used the template yesterday to diagram Nuevo Espíritu's metro line A:

While working, I made a few tweaks: I added a column for bus connections. I changed the icons for 'Tram' (there are a few choices in fact: 'tram', 'tram1'...). I had connections of the same type (tram) alternate in colour to make them more readable. I enlarged the font size (I need new glasses, I know).

All in all a nice thing to work on ! Thanks to Luciano and PortCal for showing the concept.

What everything people said above is true, I don't know about if it lags, I never tried it, I don't have a complete enough rail-line. But an alternative I found can be found HERE, in that the link given in that file description leads to an online programme that can apparently make railway and metro system maps. This is something I want to play around with more. The link shown below if you are too lazy :P
