I would say they're a little ugly for a new train. The seat covers in particular don't appeal.

The design of C20 trains is indeed better. A newer version of C20 with redesigned interior would have been better. The design of C30 trains reminds of the new metro trains in Warsaw which are already in service and the interior reminds of some average metro in any Asian city.

This is just the first mockup. While I imagine that the exterior has been set in stone by now, the evaluation of different possible interiors is pretty much the reason the mockup was built at all, if I remember the contents of some SL document from last year correctly. (Which explains the multitude of different seat covers in the photos.) So it's probably safe to say that the final design will be more polished, mass production hasn't started yet anyway.

You've clearly not travelled around Asia much if you're assuming that all "Asian trains" look the same...

What's this (for example) to showcase some new rolling stock in a small city (smaller than Stockholm) in Japan?




I don't need the trains for Stockholm to look "different" really, just have a decent and functional design that works and doesn't make my eyes hurt. The seat covers are dull beyond all measure of dull in the mock up. The exterior is quite nice, but will look nicer with more colour with the SL "blue" in place rather than the all white.

The ring in the doorways is useless - it's so high for most people that it isn't very useful. They need hanging straps, really. They also need a LOT more hand grabs in the longitudinal section to encourage people to stand there as well.

Stockholm consults on Blue Line extensions
Wednesday, February 11, 2015





STOCKHOLM County Council launched public consultation on February 9 on plans to construct two extensions to the metro Blue Line, which would serve the city's growing southern suburbs

The first five-station extension will run east from Kungsträdgården with new stations at Sofia, Hammarby Canal, Sickla, Saltsjö-Järla and Nacka.

The second extension would branch off the Nacka extension south of Sofia to Sockenplan via an interchange with the Green Line at Gullmarsplan. This will serve an area where significant new residential and commercial development is planned

According to SLL, the suburban railway (pendeltåg) system will be modernized starting from this year.
Firstly, the new trains X60B will be tested in real conditions starting from may this year. In total, there will be 46 new trains with improved acceleration system and other features delivered until 2018 (26 trains will be delivered in 2017). The trains are being constructed in Germany and are tested in the Czech Republic nowadays.
Secondly, the renovation process of the stations starts this year. Tungelsta station (Nynäsbanan) will be renovated. New stations will be constructed in Barkarby, Kallhäll (Mälarbanan), Vega (between Skogås and Handen).
Moreover, the expansion of the existing railway track network is ongoing (between Kallhäll and Barkarby) and more tracks will be constructed in the future. The line Nynäsbanan will be double-track by 2017 as the last stage of expansion in the section Hemfosa-Tungelsta will be executed from 2015 to 2017.
In a few years time, the frequency and experience of the suburban railway (pendeltåg) system should improve.

11 stations had 39 escalators have been closed down across the metro network today.

Original article:

Efter en olycka har SL beslutat att stänga av 39 rulltrappor på elva innerstadsstationer. Detta medför begränsad framkomlighet för dig som resenär, särskilt under rusningstid.

Rulltrapporna som är avstängda finns på de här stationerna:

Hötorget - rulltrapporna i mitten mot uppgång Hötorget och rulltrappan mot Sveavägen/Sergelgatan.
Rådmansgatan - rulltrappan mot Rådmansgatan.
Odenplan - rulltrappan mot Odenplan.
S:t Eriksplan - samtliga rulltrappor.
Östermalmstorg - samtliga rulltrappor
T-Centralen - rulltrapporna till/från Grön och Röd linje. Blå linje berörs inte av detta.
Slussen - rulltrapporna mot utgången Hökens gata/Götgatan. Övriga berörs inte.
Mariatorget - rulltrapporna mot Swedenborgsgatan/Mariatorget.
Zinkensdamm - samtliga rulltrappor.
Hornstull - rulltrapporna mot Hornsbruksgatan.
Skanstull - rulltrapporna mot Allhelgonagatan.
Du får gå i de stillastående rulltrapporna, men trycket på dem, hissar och vanliga trappor kommer att vara stort. Reser du vanligtvis till någon av de här stationerna, framförallt under rusningstiden, välj gärna en annan resväg om du har möjlighet.

Visa hänsyn till medresenärer med barnvagn, rullator/rullstol eller som av andra skäl har svårt att gå i trappor, och låt i första hand dem använda hissarna.

Informationen om vilka rulltrappor som är avstängda kan ändras efterhand, så håll dig uppdaterad genom att titta på den här sidan eller prata med stationspersonalen.

Därför stänger vi av rulltrapporna
Avstängningen av rulltrapporna görs av säkerhetsskäl, efter att en olycka inträffat lördagen den 14 februari. Vi stänger av alla rulltrappor av samma typ tills dess att orsaken till olyckan är utredd och besiktning av rulltrapporna gjorts.

Vi beklagar de stora besvär det här orsakar dig som resenär.

Så här kan du resa i stället
Det finns naturligtvis flera olika sätt att resa i stället. Här kommer några tips på hur du som ska till en av de här innerstadsstationerna kan göra. Fler alternativ kan du få genom att söka din resa här på sl.se eller prata med vår kundtjänst på telefon 08 600 10 00.

Östermalmstorgs tunnelbanestation
Alla rulltrappor är avstängda. Du får alltså gå i dem, men några av dem är långa och steghöjden är större än i en vanlig trappa.

Du som ska till Stureplansområdet, ta Grön tunnelbanelinje och kliv av vid Hötorget. Promenera Kungsgatan ner till Stureplan. Kommer du med Röd linje söderifrån, byter du lättast till Grön linje vid Slussen eller Gamla stan när du ska till Hötorget. Nu är flera av rulltrapporna vid Hötorget också avstängda, men där finns även vanliga trappor som komplement.
Om du ska till området kring själva Östermalmstorg, kan du ta Röd linje och kliva av vid Stadion (ligger på linje 14). Ta utgången mot Nybrogatan/Karlavägen. Följ Nybrogatan till Östermalmstorg. Det är också möjligt att gå från Karlaplans tunnelbanestation, även om det är lite längre.
Kommer du från Blå linje, och brukar byta för att åka till Östermalmstorg, kan du åka till Kungsträdgården och sedan promenera mot Norrmalmstorg/Stureplan/Östermalmstorg, via till exempel Kungsträdgårdsgatan.
T-Centralen
Du som reser med Blå linje berörs inte av det här, utan du kan ta rulltrapporna som vanligt. Du får dock räkna med att det är mer trångt än vanligt. Du kan även fortsätta till Kungsträdgården och gå mot T-Centralen via Gallerian/Hamngatan.
Du som kommer med Grön och Röd linje kan förstås gå via Blå linjen och ta rulltrapporna upp till biljetthallen.
Du får gå i de avstängda rulltrapporna och det finns även vanliga trappor mellan perrongerna på Grön och Röd linje och upp till biljetthallen, men dessa kommer alltså vara hårt belastade.
Slussens tunnelbanestation
Det är rulltrapporna mot mot Hökens gata/Götgatan som är avstängda.

Ta utgången mot Södermalmstorg och gå upp Peter Myndes backe till Götgatan.
Kommer du med Grön linje kan du även kliva av vid Medborgarplatsen och gå ut mot Björns trädgård och promenera Götgatan norrut.
Mariatorget
Utgången mot Torkel Knutssonsgatan är öppen som vanligt.
Zinkensdamm
Här finns bara en utgång med rulltrappor. Du får alltså gå i dem men det kan vara jobbigt. Steghöjden är större än i en vanlig trappa.

Busslinje 4 stannar på Hornsgatan.

Hornstull
Det är rulltrapporna mot Hornsbruksgatan som är avstängda, övriga utgångar är öppna som vanligt.

S:t Eriksplan
Samtliga rulltrappor är avstängda, men det finns vanliga trappor vid båda utgångarna. Stationen ligger inte så djupt, så trapporna är ganska korta.
Flera busslinjer stannar vid S:t Eriksplan.
Odenplan
Rulltrappan från perrongen till biljetthallen vid utgången mot Odenplan är avstängd. Det finns en vanlig trappa, som inte är så lång.
Utgången mot Västmannagatan är öppen som vanligt.
Det finns flera busslinjer som stannar vid Odenplan.
Rådmansgatan
Det är rulltrappan vid utgången mot Rådmansgatan som är avstängd. Det finns en vanlig trappa, som inte är så lång.
Utgången mot Handelshögskolan är öppen som vanligt.
Hötorget
Det är rulltrapporna i mitten på perronen mot uppgång Hötorget och rulltrappan mot Sergelgatan som är avstängda. Du får alltså gå i rulltrapporna, men steghöjden är större än i vanliga trappor. Vid utgången mot Sergelgatan finns vanliga trappor.
Stationen ligger inte så djupt, så trappor och rulltrappor är inte så långa.
Det finns bussar som går på både Sveavägen och Kungsgatan.
Skanstull
Det är rulltrapporna mot Allhelgonagatan som är avstängda. Här finns inte hiss eller vanliga trappor som alternativ. Du får alltså gå i de avstängda rulltrapporna, men steghöjden är större än i en vanlig trappa.
Utgången mot Ringvägen är öppen som vanligt.

http://sl.se/sv/info/nyheter/rulltrappor-stangs/


Basically, escalators are closed after an accident at 11 stations - all 39 escalators are closed. This is because an accident occurred on the 14th of February and therefore all escalators of the same time have been turned off while an investigation is underway.

The following stations were affected:
T-Centralen
Slussen
Mariatorget
Zinkensdamm
Hornstull
S:t Eriksplan
Odenplan
Rådmansgatan
Hötorget
Skanstull

PSD for Akeshov Station

I guesstimate that they will only install 'em along the Red line and only when that line runs only C30 cars since C30 and C20 will have different spacing of doors. we might see it on select Green line stations too since that line runs only C20 cars. T-centralen, Slussen, Gullmarsplan maybe?
Does anyone know what is the latest on this? How many potential companies are conducting their trials now? Would be curious to see how these PSD withstand Winter conditions in Stockholm.

Another train accident, not too serious, but apparently nobody told SL that there was a derailed cargo train on the tracks.

Seriously... wtf? How could that happen? How could a derailment on one track not be known to the ones running trains on the tracks next to that track?

This SVT report is with video: Pendeltåg körde in i godståg

Incidentally the blue paint can be seen under the white. Were they blue originally, or is this just a cheaper/better way of painting than blue on top?

Perhaps that is why they need to put our fares up. They need to hire more consultants and administrators that will actually communicate with the traffic agency. Or at least that'll be the excuse.

At least there were no injuries.
