Africa,Colonial - Anglo-Iberia by Neethis Africa,Colonial - Anglo-Iberia by Neethis
Okay, I admit, South America was a little easy :D

Africa, on the other hand, is a b*tch. This is a much prettified version of a map that I'm working off to develop Africa for the Anglo-Iberian timeline, showing the continent during the last gasps of the timeline's colonial period, before the war which has the working title of "The Imperial War", with the previous, larger war being known as "The Great War".

As for the modern day version of Africa, I should have one up and working within a few weeks with any luck (my main problem is figuring out good names for places).
A few borders may be subject to change from this colonial map, such as those of the Algeria analogue, which are just slightly too anachronistic to sit comfortably with me.

Comments and questions always welcome

I see the Belgians never get their hands on OTL Democratic Republic of the Congo, why not?

The area known to us as Belgium is part of the Netherlands in this timeline, which in turn is a Kingdom of the Anglo-Iberian Empire :) so the short answer is, because it doesn't exist :D lol

Have the British finished the rail road from north to south in this timeline?

By this time theres an Austrian line that runs from Cairo to the analogue of Kenya, and theres an Anglo-Iberian network that links Cape to Gambia, but few direct links from Cape to Cairo.

By the modern age, trainlines are more pervasive in this timeline, and more branching too, and are usually seen as the first choice for long distance travel. Most major modern nations have internal highspeed rail, linking to slow speed local passenger lines. I wanted to create a difference to our own world, but didn't want to go with the cliche of zeppelins... heh.

Sounds good, though Zeppelins get top style points.

If you are going for rail, stick in a couple tunnels, depending on the political situation you could have a go Edinburgh to Cape Town.

You might want to do for a bridge from Spain to Africa. Not only would it look cooler, apparently a tunnel might not be possible.

Yeah, I'd been considering such - even after the decolonisation, Anglo-Iberia will still keep the northern chunk of Morocco, making such a bridge politically stable, at least :)

The Gibralter Straits, at their narrowest, are about 14km wide, I think, and some 900 metres deep. I think the biggest trouble with a tunnel is supposed to be geological stability... a bridge wouldn't be so subject to earthquake damage and the like, not to mention being (relatively) cheaper in construction, I'd imagine...
