thanks for the pictures. i'm impressed with even middle-sized german cities for building efficient rail-based transit.

Nearly all central European cities of any noteworthy size (especially German, Swiss and Austrian cities) have very good PT. There are very few cities of noteworthy size without some form of rail based transit in Germany. Like City_thing and myself have said, the world could learn a lot from Germany and Japan about PT provision nationwide and I can only hope that countries like NZ which have absolutely laughable PT can take on board what these countries are doing.

The Nürnberg U-bahn was extended recently with a new line (U3) added, correct? This new line is also being extended and is the first driverless metro line in Germany.

^um.. yes. i've spent time in germany. one of germany's advantages in terms of transport planning, are its relatively smaller urban centers. that, unlike the anglo nations, its urban development hasn't been fully subverted by the interests of the development industry and its penchant for auto-based low density.

eh.. let's not talk about city_thing, the person who criticized shanghai's metro, but put MELBOURNE into the list of the world's best tranport systems.

too bad the photo quality is really poor. I'd love to see more about Nürnberg's metro. From what I know Munich's, Nuremberg's and Vienna's metros were built according to the same standards and in the beginning trains would be exchanged on several occasions. However all grew apart from each other and are no longer compatible to my best knowledge.

@rheintram

Die Bildqualität is hier deshalb so schlecht weil die Bilder fast 5 Jahre alt sind und ich damals ne Scheisskamera hatte, deshalb bitte ich das zu entschuldigen. München und Nürnberg haben sich sogar einige Male gegenseitig mit Zügen ausgeholfen, denn der Münchener A bzw. B-Zug ist baugleich mit dem Nürnberger Typ DT1 bzw. DT2.

ROFL. Wow, you really misunderstood everything I posted.

But anyway - this is a thread about something entirely different, isn't it?

Don't worry mate, this guy exudes arrogance from every pore in every post of his. He started one post in the "Which major cities in industrialized [sic] nations lack rail transit?" with "for the last time" - this without actually replying to anyone in particular and without addressing an issue that anyone had brought up.

^as opposed to your 'objective' analyses, based on places you like, and the ones you don't? go through your posts and see if you actually make sense.

Sure, I'm a little biased, but show me someone who isn't. This forum, like all internet forums is a place for egos to be inflated and opinions to be yelled from the rooftops - teh intermawebz tends to do that to people and it is obviously a culture that you have embraced wholeheartedly judging from your posting.

As for your critique regarding places I like; I do tend to like cities that have a good PT system (in my own subjective opinion of course) and so quite often having good transit and being a place I like are not mutually exclusive, hence your misinformed opinion.

Finally, unless you have read all of my posts (which are mostly in the Ozscrapers/Kiwiscrapers section) you have no right to comment on what I have written on the forum. Considering most posts are simply opinions, you have no right to say whether or not my opinions are any more valid than your own. If you have a problem with me or my posts please, feel free to PM me as I'm quite happy to discuss it properly there.

Gladly.

An excellent video by the person who started this thread:

That semi-open section along the old town wall and the moat one of the coolest features of the system IMO (along with the fact, that the automatic trains of U3 run on the same tracks as the conventional sets with a driver of U2 (exactly on that section)).

NUREMBERG | Public Transport

Hello everyone,

last year I went for a trip to Nuremberg (Germany) and had some time to film the metro. Nuremberg has three different types of trains on the metro (DT1, DT2 and DT3). My video is more about the newest generation of metro trains (DT3), which operates driverless and full automatically without passenger doors on the platforms. The system works fine how you can see in the video...

I hope you enjoy!

Best regards from Munich,
met

Good video, thanks!

i just wonder - Nurnberg is probably the only city(at least the only one which i know) that has driverless system without doors on the platforms. Why? Nurnberg's suicides don't like the subway?
