Not quite true on the "hydrogen", but you're right they are run on a type of gas - biogas in fact. Nearly all the fleet of buses is ethanol or biogas now.

They have been tested some 8 years ago, but i don't know whether there are any used nowadays.

Yes they are, but they are not used any more. It was part of a trial in a number of cities around the world - including London. They decided that it was too expensive and impractical to do city-wide rollouts of the technology. It was more a proof of principle.

A blue 'Hop-on, hop-off' tourist bus, standing near the Grand hotell:



The one can see many double-decker buses of this type in the city which serve several different lines with some stops.

Yeah, I'm not surprised - it's a major bit of work. Unfortunately I can't take photographs of the blue line work at T-Centralen. The blue line works for Citybanan are annoying for me as tonight I need to go from Kista to Hallunda. Argh!

I never use the blue line, so it does not affect me. However, all the work on T17 and T19 really slows down my journeys on the T18.

Well, work has to be done or we'll be left with ageing infrastructure. We need to keep updating and improving things. Yes, it is inconvenient for users, but the end result will benefit us all.

PS: I am a green line commuter too, but for leisure activities I use the blue line and I live on the red line.

^agreed, it is well worth it
This is the first year I'm not affected by the Blue line shortening since I now live and work on the Green line. My family lives in Kista still, so it's been a little bit of a hassle.

Come 2017 it'll be pretty damn sweet tho: more Tvärbana (both much longer with transfer stations and more frequent service), more frequent commuter trains and the new Odenplan station!

Exactly! We're getting a lot of rail infrastructure built and a lot more is under planning currently. Whilst closures and improvements are annoying for users now, the result, as I say above is going to be amazing.

Don't forget about the upgrade to the Roslagsbanan, the integration of the Lidingöbanan with Spårväg City and other such things too! Not as impressive in terms of connectivity as others, but essential rail works all the same.

Yeah, those two projects are also pretty good.

Roslagsbanan seems to be a never-ending story of upgrades. It is over a hundred years old, so it makes sense that it's time for a major over-haul and double-tracking far more stretches. Iirc I've read somewhere (I'm roughly 65% certain it was by someone with insights into the project) that where they are double-tracking it and/or renovating the line they're making sure there's enough space to change to standard gauge tracks. Not that there's any plans to do that even long-term, so that'll stand out as a bit of awesome fore-sight when the switch is made in a couple o' generations time.

SpvCity will get a boost from the connection with Lidingöbanan at Ropsten, but the BIG boost will come a few years later when they extend it west to T-centralen (@Åhléns) and to the upper exit from Centralstationen (which'll be just as close to Cityterminalen's inter-city bus station as well). That connection will be great PR-wise for trams too.
