City views nearby Croisettes station which is terminus and situated high above. From there, you can't even feel that the city itself is below. You just can't see it. Only Leman lake and the mountains at the French side.

I won't dwell upon that too much. But I'll start a new thread on Lausanne to show you my view of the city.


http://fotki.yandex.ru/users/night-c...m/view/452004/

Near Croisettes station there's a bus terminal (Gare routičre) where busses travel to other towns and cities. The name of Moudon sounds very rude in Russian... Indeed. But the Man is stunning.

By the way, this borough is very well viewed on Googla Maps, the way it is detailed is absolutely impressivr. Go there and see.

Now, back to the metro.

Entrance:









Bus schedule inside the station building:





Since the train hasn't set off and there's almost no one, I decide to take pictures.
The interior is the same as of MP89 in Paris but much cleaner and in a better state:







Double doors:



Instead of driver's cab:










Approaching the next station:



To be continued.

Thanks for giving me the link but I prefer to start a new thread on my own to show my vision of the city.

Let's carry on.

Now, we're arriving at Sallaz station. It is interesting that it is actually onground but covered. Right after it the train goes out to a short flyover after which it enters a tunnel and goes underground. The lenght of the open part is some 200 - 300 m, you can measure it at Google maps.












The station itself. As you can see, the platform is between the rails, which is more typical of Soviets metros rather than Western systems.





The next post will be about the surroundings: it is also worth seeing as when I was there, there was a construction site nearby, with a junction being built. but the most interesting in my opinion, apart from the city itself, is rails. There are rail switches that are seen from above. That's especially interesting taking into account that trains run on tyres.

I heard that an option was a cover made by glass, to reduce nois but not the view.

The M3 would double the M2 between Flon and Lausanne station and a new hub at Place Chauderon is envisaged. This project is very close to being confirmed.

A video in English about Transport Lausanne:


Memory sequence with the last tram in Lausanne, who has lived from 1896 to 1964:

LAUSANNE: THIRD METRO FULL AUTOMATIC SYSTEM

The M3 is confirmed by the Vaud government, with the creation of an extension of the future tramway "Flon-Renens" directly to Bussigny.

Route of the M3. The M2 and M3 are side by side between the station Lausanne-Flon and Grancy, to solve the saturation of the strategic section CFF Station - Lausanne-Flon in 2020. The M3 will serve the plain of La Blécherette, where a district and various public facilities are provided to thousands of new residents and jobs. Inauguration scheduled between 2018 and 2020

Should be the same technology as the M2 line so rubber-tyred.

I wonder if the rolling stock will be based off the Paris MP 05, or if they will use a different design. It almost seems that if the new line takes over a portion of M2, that I would take it that they would end up using rolling stock that is very similar to what is already on M2, which is based off the Paris MP 89.

well, they will actually share some stations so obviously the model will have to be very similar to the current one, maybe even the same if it's possible with some small modifications which are going to be also implemented in the current trains.
