Yes you are. Do calm down. ()
The mayor, like it or not, is not the one to be responsible for the construction of L9/L10, itīs the region.
We havenīt heard much about L9 from the region lately.

Come on now. Did you seriously ever believe those dates?

Very sad station! No decorations on the walls? Even some nice light would do a lot to this space.

L1-Mercat Nou.

Open since 1926.
A train composed by 2 class 100 carriages (original 1926 L1 rolling stock).
The photo was taken some time before Sants station became underground, so that must be somewhere in the late 1960s -1970/71 at most.
Note that there were only two Renfe tracks (now there are six -two of them for HSR).

This station looks absolutely different from how it used to be, since itīs been reconstructed just a few years ago.

I'm curious, what exactly is technically metro by your standards?

L7 and former U7 as far as I'm concerned has always been a metro, it fulfills all criteria.

*Double tracked
*High platforms
*High service frequency
*100% grade separated
*Dedicated rolling stock EMU:s
*100% urban
*100% underground

L3-Drassanes.

Open since 1968, when L3 was extended from Liceu station.
Drassanes replaced the old Fernando station, which was located between the two.

L10. Works between future Zona Franca-Litoral and Motors stations.

Photos taken by dvdhrd on October 30, 2013.

Views on the tunnel bored years ago by the TBM.
For what dvdhrd says, they are building the connection between the tunnel and the viaduct.

L10-Gorg.

Open since 2010.

It is an interchange point between L10 and L2.
Overall, itīs possibly the easiest interchange, except for one of the options at Paral.lel (if you change from L3 coming from Trinitat Nova into L2 bound for Badalona Pompeu Fabra).

L2-Gorg.

Open since 1985 as part of L4. From 2002 on, itīs part of L2.
Itīs one of the easiest interchanges of the whole metro network, and overall, the easiest.

If we turn our heads to the right, we see a flight of stairs, at the end of it, thatīs it, itīs the L10 platform.
