Couple of items:
Lougheed should be "Lougheed Town Centre"
I think there's a pocket track along the TCH between Braid and Lougheed - I've seen trains parked there many times - or s the squiggle next to Braid meant to be it?

sorry to get all TECHNICAL but I'm very sure that MAIN STREET STATION was the FIRST station to open as there was an initial DEMO SKYTRAIN LINE from Main Street Station to west of Broadway station and back. So I am sure it opened at least in 1985.

good call yes there is that pocket track for sure.

ALSO if you are listing Woodlands as a potential FUTURE station should you not list the possible station at Boundary Road (Telus towers area) between Patterson and Joyce stations?

right here >> http://maps.google.com/maps?f=q&sour...,0.006115&z=18

IMO that station has a much better chance of happening than Woodlands anytime soon

I'll add the future boundary road station and add the Woodlands name - thanks for that.

The opening dates were for revenue service - if the demo opened for revenue service to another station, I'll include it. But if it was just and out and back ride, I'll make a note of it. Do you know the date?

I think the 1km demo was the summer of 1983 but not sure of the exact days.

Fantastic job on the map - maybe you can contribute the map to the Wiki page on Vancouver SkyTrain?

To be even more nitpicky, you have Gilmore spelled as "Glimore"

And I came across this, which I thought was hilarious. Sorry if it has been posted before:

Sorry if this is completely obvious everyone else but they took the name of the station and rearranged all the letters to make it a silly new name?

Yup. I'm personally a fan of the Urinary Custody Viewpoint (Production Way University)

Easy, just become a member and post. But I would hold off from posting this, just in case some TransLink or inTransitBC doesn't want this available for access to the general public thinking it would be a threat to their system.

Should be okay - there's already a track diagram for skytrain at NYC subway page and at Transport 2000 there's a wiring diagramme from the Vancouver trolley buses. For London England, you can buy a track diagramme of the entire underground - which is where I got the idea for this. And then you can always zoom in on Google maps to see everything (complete with lat and long).

You don't even need to be a member. All you need to do is click on the edit button at the top of the page and submit an edit. If you wanted to be a member you could but I have editted things before and I am not one.
