Abstract: We determine equations of the modular curves $ {X_1}(N)$ for $ N = 11,13,14,15,16,17$ and 18. Except for $ N = 17$, these are the only existing elliptic or hyperelliptic $ {X_1}(N)$. Applying these $ {X_1}(N)$, we calculate tables of elliptic curves E over quadratic fields K with torsion groups of one of the following isomorphism types:

$\displaystyle {E_{{\operatorname{tor}}}}(K) \cong {\mathbf{Z}}/m{\mathbf{Z}},\quad m = 11,13,14,15,16\;{\text{and}}\;18.$
