MISC | Crossrails et al.

I thought we needed a thread about the kind of subway cities may ever hope to get, especially if they're to small for a proper one.

Crossrail, Passante, City-Tunnel, RER, you name it, this is supposed to be a thread about metro/commuter rail hybrid systems that a lot of cities have and some other cities specificalle lack. The focus is to be on both the specific central backbone(s) of such system as well as the overall system that arose thereof.

You meen something like the rail tunnel in Malmö, the upcoming tunnel in Stockholm, and the S-Bahn tunnels in cities like München, Stuttgart, Frankfurt (am Main), Leipzig e.t.c.?

No. This is too general and duplicates too much that is occurring in other threads. It includes nearly every commuter rail in Australasia as well as many German and French cities, Japanese cities and others.

Before, this kind of thread has degenerated to "what is a metro" and "what is an S-bahn" etc. Don't need more wars over definitions, thanks.
