Default Thameslink returns to the Tube Map

Geoff celebrates the belated return of Thameslink to TfL's Tube Map, after
a long absence. And it's not just the core section, but as much as fits in
the extended zones. So the map now features over 500 stations:

If they're going to include Thameslink they'll have to include Great Northern
too to be consistent. I suspect it'll be a very busy map.

Yup, and even the TL addition is only for a 12-month trial period. One reason for it is because of the pending Northern
Line closures through Bank.

The map itself is not on the TfL site yet, but curiously is available at
https://www.ianvisits.co.uk/blog/202...test-tube-map/

They've left Hadley Wood off, despite it being in Zone 6.

The kink in the Thameslink Line between City TL and the junction north
of St Pancras seems inexplicable.

The Bakerloo Line shouldn't enter Elephant at the same angle that the
Denmark Hill branch leaves.

Maidenhead and Reading are still portrayed north of the Thames!

How else would you get round all the other blobs at KGX/StP? Especially
as the line in fact runs to the west.

No, it seems to be the final one. Here's another example:

Neil has suggested that the GN Moorgate line should also be added, and I
agree, but it would be hard to squeeze it in.

Looks like it would easily fit between Finsbury Park and Moorgate, but
not much space for the Hertford Loop.

I was thinking of the problems of showing and labelling the inner London
stations, while keeping the line reasonably straight.
