Chilenofuturista ???
The trains' frequency is just laughable, I mean, every 10 minutes?!?! God, that's the frequency many commuter train systems in continental Europe got. And what about this policy of 5 min on peak hours? 5 min?!?!?!
That's ages in other systems, a real peak hour is everything from every 30 seconds to 3 min.
???

In Oslo every subway train have 15 min on peak hours!!! That means 15 min where the lines ends. You cant sya that subway in sweden is bad because of bad peak hour trains. In Oslo, trains are big! Yes big. It can be explained as, that the roof of Oslo wagons would fall of in most of European subway systems.

Stockholm, 20% of the roof
London and Paris, 60% of the roof

A 6 wagon subway in Oslo is the same as 8 in Stockholm etc. We are tall people,.. thats why I guess

These earthy stations are on just one line, yes? Still, it makes the Stockholm subway one of my favourite.

Wow! really unique, I like it.

The ground underneath stockholm must be really hard if they can leave it exposed instead of enforcing it with concrete/steel and whatever other materials.

@chileno: I think you are overreacting a tad. Okay, i agree that slussen is really filthy and distussting but most stations are actucally cleaner than other systems, like Paris or London. And 10 mins for the train to arrive depends on where you´re going. I usally take the subway to hötorget and other innercity stations and the trains always leave within 1-3 minutes. But you might have to wait if you are in remote place of the subway system, fine, big deal 10 minutes of your life.

The trains are clean to, from that i have seen (I travel with the subway about 3 times a week). I would say that Stockholm has a great commuter system, including the subway for such a small city. I do agree that the stations are ugly although and they are totaly not art.

That's all from me, enjoy

Me too. The only bad thing I can say is that frequences are too low in the branches. But the design is just good - not too majestic, but simply stylish.

The system we have here in Helsinki resembles Stockholm's blue line although not all stations are decorated like the ones in Stockholm.



But too many of them are spiritles and boring due to lack of colors and pieces of art:


We should learn from Stockholm.

Nordic granite is one of the hardest types of soil you can find on earth.

And also, it's not exposed. There's a layer of cement or concrete on the rockfaces. Helps seal it against water and such. But no reinfrcement needed, the granite is HARD.

@chileno - I don't agree at all. Of the subways I've been on (Sthlm, Cph, NYC, LDN, Praha) Stockholm's isn't dirty at all (unless compared to CPH - but theirs is IMO almost LRT-like).
As for trains being late - happens to me every single day! but 99% of the time only by 2-3 minutes. Basically they messed up when making the schedules (why else would the train from my station always be 2min late?).
10min off-peak isn't much, true. But the number of passengers isn't high enough to need more. Comes from most areas being low-rise...

Sure, some Asian metros are more efficient but the the design of the Stockholm metro is one of a kind IMO.

Stockholm surely is one of the top 3 world's coolest metro systems for its extraordinary station designs!

Stockholm could be better, but it´s okay. The system as such is good, but some stations are a bit too dirty such as the whole T-Centralen complex with numerous of accesses to the streets and so on. A haven for drug dealers and such people. But whatever, I find Karlsplatz here in Vienna equally bad. Btw, from what I´ve heard, Opernpassage at Karlsplatz (built 1950-1955) inspired Sergels torg at T-centralen (built in the early sixties?). It´s got the same oval form in the underground and so on.

Actually they redid the whole mainentrance to T-centralen towards sergelstorg. It's really nice now in my opinion, very modern and way better than it was before.

^That's at Rissne. has one map like that and then time-lines all over both walls showing the history of the world (empires and such). One of the cooler ideas, and probably helped kids learn history a bit

Here's a shot I took of the doors/gate I came out of on my way to work about a week ago.

the text says
the Gate | opens
Friday | s 21:00
i.e., Stargate Atlanits at 21 on fridays (on channel six).
