Hey - the map looks brilliant, but do you have a higher quality version of the image available - can't read the place-names on that one!

I agree, it is quite difficult to read!

Thanks, Miles, for emailing me the bigger versions.

One thing I noticed is that Nick seems to think that Eastern Line trains will terminate at Manukau, while Southern Line Trains will not stop at Manukau, and instead go past it and terminate at Papakura.

I was under the impression that the Manukau station was to be added to both the Southern and Eastern Lines -- i.e. all Southern and Eastern line trains travelling up the main trunk line will leave the main trunk and go to Manukau via the manukau branch line, then reverse back to the main trunk line to continue its journey. Something like how it works for Western Line trains at Newmarket, where it goes into Newmarket then reverses out to Waitakere or Britomart.

I will investigate more, but what are your thoughts?
