Thanks for showing my video. Below is a link to a Swedish newspaper ( in Swedish only, but with a nice Picture ), showing on the same place, what can go wrong when you drive a car with too much alcohol in the blood system...

The guy just took the wrong way. last tuesday.

Good videos, but those trains have the most annoying "doors closing" warning sound I've heard.

Haha, thankfully not! I just watched them to be sure, but I managed to avoid being in your videos at least!

I was there on opening day, though. Was a good fun ride. Nice little party atmosphere there too. The crowds of people interested in the opening was nice as well.

Some more Tunnelbane / Metro videos. Most probably the last ones, as it is getting more difficult to shot videos now-a-days...

How come you feel it's more difficult to shoot videos?

(Also, nice collection, thanks!)

Stockholm Metro

The metro in Stockholm is one of the most spectecular metro lines in the world. Infratecture is the title of de research center of the Rotterdam University of applied sciences and is researching how to make integral infrastructure. One of the themes we are researching is the role of art within infrastructure. Are the passengers feeling more safe because of the art and are there more passengers then in simular lines?
Please help us to find out what art can for making infrastructure more attractive.

It seems to be a very interesting research theme! This is one of the moments when I'm really sorry that I'm in plasma physics but not in urban geography.

I think that, generally, any forms of art don't make passengers feel more safe in public transport. As for me, the important things are the low crime levels in the city we're speaking about and the low degree of equipment wear.

However, it's very interesting to analyse art and its importance in subways. Let's compare the underground systems in Moscow and Stockholm from that point of view. I'm from Russia but I have been to Stockholm three times and I'm interested in its public transport so I can say something about this.

If you search for the Moscow Metro pictures in Google, you'll find out that it is one of the finest examples of Stalinist architecture. There are the Communist Party’s propaganda messages there. As Wikipedia says, "with their reflective marble walls, high ceilings and grandiose chandeliers, many Moscow Metro stations have been likened to an artificial underground sun". Indeed, the stations look pretty nice but believe it or not, when I go by the Moscow Metro, I feel myself as a foreign body there - both in peak and off-peak hours. I guess it is because the stations overwhelm me by their greatness and the artworks so I can't be at my ease and feel free. Probably, this is the point of Stalinist architecture.

The Stockholm metro was built during the rule of the Swedish Social Democratic Party. That period was characterized by the concept of people's home (folkhemmet) which means that the entire society ought to be like a small family, where everybody contributes. It seems to me that the aim to create such a society had an effect on the public spaces in Sweden, including the Stockholm metro which looks like a cozy and even restful place where everyone is happy. The artworks in the Stockholm metro have never been supposed to glorify the Swedish political leaders. The other important thing that should be considered is the so-called Swedish minimalism that makes the artworks and stations look freely, naturally and with ease so the passengers feel at home there.

A few pics of the under construction rail bridge that will lift the incoming inter-city tracks above and past the local commuter rail tracks near Årstaberg. The point is to shift the tracks so that there will be no at-grade crossovers needed when the new Citybanan commuter rail tunnel is opened in 2017.

Cool side-effect: people arriving to Stockholm by trains from the south will get a great view of the inner 'burbs (which are going to get quite a bit of development in the next couple of decades).

Stockholm's first Lidingö light rail vehicle on test
05 Jun 2014


CAF Urbos Axle A36 low-floor light rail vehicle for Stockholm operator SL

SWEDEN: The first of seven Urbos Axle low-floor light rail vehicles which CAF is supplying to Stockholm's SL is now being tested on the Petit Fôret test centre near Valenciennes in France.

Designated A36 by SL, the 1 435 mm gauge cars are similar to 15 A35 cars which CAF has supplied for the northern extension of Stockholm’s Tväbanan orbital light rail line, but have an extra intermediate section to increase capacity. The A36 cars are 40·6 m long and 2 650 mm wide, with 102 seats and space for 157 standing passenger at 4/m². The four-module cars are carried on five bogies, of which four are powered by eight ABB traction motors of 65 kW. This will give them a maximum speed of 90 km/h.

Both types of car have aluminium bodysides and roof, with a steel underframe and GRP cab ends enclosing a crash-resistant steel frame. The articulation is designed to enable them to operate around curves down to 17 m radius.

The A36 cars will operate on the 9·1 km Södra Lidingöbanan to the east of the capital, which runs from the Red Line metro terminus at Ropsten to Gåshaga on the island of Lidingö. This line was previously operated by a fleet of 21 much-rebuilt A30 and B30 trams dating from 1944, which ran as two-car and three-car sets. The line was closed in July 2013 for complete reconstruction, including a new depot, and is expected to reopen towards the end of this year, once the new cars have been commissioned
