Wouldn't it be cool if catching a subway ride in Baltimore was as convenient as buying a sandwich?

The city's 15-mile Metro Subway system consists of only one rail line, from Owings Mills to Johns Hopkins Hospital. But that hasn't stopped people over the years from dreaming of a more connected regional heavy-rail transit system.

In the latest iteration, Reddit user 1map_dude1 replaced Baltimore's ubiquitous Subway restaurants with subway stations in a map that resulted in a seven-line, 55-station subway system.

That's still a smaller system than a similar, 140-stop regional map created by Baltimore resident Chris Nelson in 2013. And, as 1map_dude1 pointed out on Reddit, it's one of a series of sandwich-shops-reimagined-as-transit-stops maps that Redditors have been posting over the years.

IAmA Baltimore Sun Journalist: With reporters Justin Fenton and Kevin Rector

Crime reporters Justin Fenton and Kevin Rector hosted an Ask Me Anything (AMA) session on Reddit Tuesday afternoon to talk about the Gun Trace Task Force, crime reporting in Baltimore and whatever else the Redditors had on their minds.

The responses to the most recent map were, well, perhaps what you'd expect:

"This one is bloody brilliant."

"This would almost make our city functional. Almost."

"You monster. Why would you tease us like that?"

Redditor 1map_dude1 did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
