Okay, I'll make the executive decision to restart this thread with a nice easy one.

So where is this from? PS: DO NOT QUOTE THE POST - the link gives away a bit too much. Play fair people!

It must be Berlin. Which station, no idea, at first sight.
But there are two great hints:
- It is a station served by at least two lines, and one of them is U6.
- The hhalf of the name of the station is easily readable.
Of course I looked for it and now I know it, but I would surely never have guessed it without those hints.

As I'm 100% sure that I've answered correct I go ahead and show a new picture.



Where?

Bonus points if you know "why"!

Berlin Friedrichstraße station? I passed through here at the end of last year, so I am sort of sure... But not 100%.

Plus, yes you were right.

Here you go then. See if you can ping pong this one.

Again, no quoting, it gives it away from the URL. Too lazy to change.

Dimlys, it is indeed! I hope you didn't recognise my picture from another of my threads.

Your turn! Post a good one!

It was indeed in your country - and a very nice country it is too. This was the first new circle line station I used in Singapore as it was close to where we stayed. The time I was in Singapore before, the circle line wasn't even open! This time, I was in Singapore only a few days before the first stage of the Downtown line opened!
