I'm new to OpenStreetMap and OpenLayers and want my map to resemble the Transport Map on the OpenStreetMap website.

My init() function looks like this: function init() { map = new OpenLayers.Map("map"); var mapnik = new OpenLayers.Layer.OSM(); map.addLayer(mapnik); var fromProjection = new OpenLayers.Projection("EPSG:4326"); // Transform from WGS 1984 var toProjection = new OpenLayers.Projection("EPSG:900913"); // to Spherical Mercator Projection var position = new OpenLayers.LonLat(-1.83, 52.60).transform(fromProjection, toProjection); var zoom = 7; map.setCenter(position, zoom); }

My map currently looks like the Standard one. Does the OpenLayers.Layer.OSM() constructor take any parameters?

Try this

function init() {
        map = new OpenLayers.Map("map");
        map.addControl(new OpenLayers.Control.LayerSwitcher());
        var mapnik = new OpenLayers.Layer.OSM();
        map.addLayer(mapnik);
        var transportmap = new  OpenLayers.Layer.OSM.TransportMap("OpenTransportMap"); //defined here http://www.openstreetmap.org/openlayers/OpenStreetMap.js
        map.addLayer(transportmap);
        var fromProjection = new OpenLayers.Projection("EPSG:4326");   // Transform from WGS 1984
        var toProjection = new OpenLayers.Projection("EPSG:900913"); // to Spherical Mercator Projection
        var position = new OpenLayers.LonLat(-1.83, 52.60).transform(fromProjection, toProjection);
        var zoom = 7;
        map.setCenter(position, zoom);
    }

I've figured it out. I used WireShark to watch what my browser was doing while using the Transport Map and I can see the following HTTP headers being sent:

GET /transport/16/35668/20346.png HTTP/1.1
Host: b.tile2.opencyclemap.org
...

Looks like it using a tile server hosted by opencyclemap.org.

Thanks for the link to Thunderforest and the Ts & Cs. Doh! I've only just noticed the attribution at the bottom of the Transport map to Andy Allan and opencyclemap.org so perhaps my super-sleuthing was unnecessary!
