Is there a detailed track diagram of the Tunnelbanan? I couldn't make much sense of the track layouts of the red and green lines trought the central section when I was in Stockholm.

I don't think so. I haven't seen one online at least. What parts did you not get a grip of? I know in my head how the regularly used tracks are layed out.

A couple of new videos of mine from Stockholm showcasing the pendeltåg network to the north of Stockholm on the Märsta and Uppsala lines.

First up is Ulriksdal in Solna municipality.






Sollentuna Station in Sollentuna Municipality.

Another little tour of Stockholm, this time the Solna branch of the Tvärbanan. The northern stretch of the Tvärbanan from Alvik to Solna has undergone a lot of closures as well as a few signalling updates (due to defective equipment) after its opening in 2013. It is not currently properly integrated with the southern portion of the Tvärbanan from Alvik to Sickla due to differences in signalling (and separate rolling stock at the moment too).

Anyway, here's a tour of Alvik station. Alvik is a very busy interchange as it is where all three branches of the green line of the Tunnelbana comes together with the Nockebybanan (legacy light rail) and both Tvärbanan (light rail) sections.







And a ride on the Solna branch of the Tvärbanan from Alvik to Solna. There was a signal failure while I was on the train so we stopped for a while. I didn't realise until the announcement so I stopped recording shortly afterwards.

Brings back memories from my student exchange. My student dormitory was near Västra Skogen .

A lot of our students are housed there as well. Strix and Pax for SSSB are there amongst other accommodation.

The exits from the new subway stations have been placed:

I did a quick doodle in google maps since the official maps in that article didn't match with the text (which is based on quotes from a new document).

EDIT: MY MAP IS WRONG. I emailed the New Subway project and they were clear that their maps are correct. My source was incorrect.

Finally, indeed. Hopefully, an extention of Spårväg City to Ropsten and a junction with Lidingöbanan will follow.

While the Spårväg Syd project looks cool, the money could be spent way better elsewhere. Connect the tram lines we've got into one network, dammit, and don't add more disconnected pieces. Stockholm must have European record in number of disconnected rail systems. Lidingö-to-Tvärbanan, cool.

Spårväg Syd is also the least profitable of all proposals. On the other hand it is excellent for BRT, particularly with Förbifarten. It would still be non-profitable, but at least it could be excused for long term Södertörn development. If the development continues the BRT could possibly turn into LRT some decades from now.

The south already has pseudo-BRT. I really would, given the passenger usage in that part of Stockholm, rather have a proper light rail system.

Stockholm seems to be going the route of Paris - unconnected light rail to fill gaps between heavy rail systems. You don't necessarily need a network of light rail and a network of heavy rail, you just need a network, and that is what we are working towards.

You don't need a connected network, but there is a huge cost to that. Literally, as it is more expensive to run a dozen different networks, and purchase systems, vehicles, and services. But also in the loss of flexibility and reduced network effects. When a problem happens you can't reroute. If the problem happens between T-Centralen and Slussen (for the metro), between Karlberg and Älvsjö (for the pendeltåg), anywhere (for the light rails), the network is broken. Multiple transfers, which many disjunct pieces enforce, adds both to psycological and actual travel time, and radically increases the likelihood of unforeseen delay.

Fully integrating systems like Roslagsbanan and Saltsjöbanan is practically impossible, and that is fine, that is legacy. But scattering tram systems around is just giving an opportunity for tramhaters to eventually say "told you so", and you get calls to shut the whole thing down.

What I, and basically everyone else, look for in a transport system when travelling is efficiency, comfort, convenience, reliability, price, ease/simplicity, frequency (environmental issues come in when planning it)... The actual means of propulsion isn't that relevant except where it affects those factors.



The south (or for that matter the north and centre) doesn't even have pseudo-BRT. The trunk routes 1-4 in the Stockholm city core would be the closest. The buses in Stockholm are not particularly good, though I have seen worse, and the bus stops are of highly variable quality.

My choices from Södertälje to Stockholm are three. The J36 pendeltåg, which is good, if slow and unreliable these days, and the 748 and 749 lines.

The last route is excellent and fairly new, and only goes in the rush hour weekdays. It is also very popular and hopefully will be extended when SL get out of the hole they dug themselves in. After leaving Södertälje it goes straight on the motorway, has a quick intermediate stop and then arrives at Liljeholmen. There you have to cross the square for a couple minutes to get to either the metro or the Tvärbanan tram. Returning by metro it is even better as the bus terminal is integrated with the metro. It is Sweet.

The 748 also goes on the motorway, but when it nears first (and weekends last) stop Fittja it changes from a bus into a carousel. The people on the bus go round and round until it settles outside the metro station. Then it is a couple more circles before on the way to Kungens Kurva and eventually (rush hour) Liljeholmen. Two buses, same starting point, same end point, essentially same route, but different experience.

There are many Fittjas in Stockholm, far too few Liljeholmens.

I just realised you replied to me, I will formulate a reply tomorrow for you.

But first, because I've just finished processing them, I'm going to share some videos I took yesterday for the metro system here in Stockholm.

First up is Karlaplan station on the red line (Ropsten branch).







And one of the major interchange stations, Östermalmstorg.





Hope you enjoy.

There is an interior view of the new C30 trains on Bombardier's website:



For a closer look, here is the original in 4.000 x 2.000.

I also found some pictures from the engineering I would like to share with you:

Amazing, the project is beginning to come together. I actually hope that I get to ride on the Citybanan before I leave.

Also interesting is that the escalator installers are from the UK - the +44 and area code gives that away somewhat!

This project will become reality. The construction work is scheduled to start in 2018 and the process will last until the year 2022.

Among other things, such project would make more space for further expansion of Nacka municipality.
