Rail Transit of Portland, Oregon

Here's a new transit diagram that I've been working on for a while now - a unified rail transit map for the place I live, Portland, Oregon. Portland is blessed with fantastic public transportation, but I've always felt that the official TriMet system diagram fails to fully show this, even after its recent redesign.The official diagram only shows TriMet's services - the MAX light rail and WES commuter rail - relegating the important Portland Streetcar to a pathetic, unlabelled, light brown squiggle through downtown. As the Streetcar is currently expanding across the Willamette River in the form of the Streetcar Loop, I feel it is even more important to show its full extent and interaction with TriMet's services. As both systems honour each other's fares, there's absolutely no reason not to show both systems on one diagram.
