Regarding service improvements: It's said that travel times on the (new) S-Bahn Mitteldeutschland will be cut by up to 40mins with the new tunnel.

That's how the network will look like:


Quite interestingly, S-Bahn Mitteldeutschland will use a silver paint scheme in the future although it's operated by DB







Two class 442 EMUs: Left the normal DB paint scheme (like used for S-Bahn Nuremberg), right S-Bahn Mitteldeutschland. The train is a Bombardier Talent 2/

Thanx for the info. However, to correct, there are a few odd Intercites and possibly ICEs which will use the tunnel from this December onwards. However, the vast majority of long-distance trains will continue as before to reverse in the terminus. While I think a city the size of Leipzig deserves an S-Bahn that actually runs through the center and does not only circle around it, it would have been useful if long-distance routes had been better integrated into the system, especially the HSL to Erfurt.

Leipzig now has certainly the best looking S-Bahn in Germany both in terms of train design and livery!
And also some of the best looking underground stations.

Also i'm not a friend of the class 442 EMU design (IMO they look not S-Bahnish more Regionaltrainish) the stations are really fast and have excellent design. They seem to fit into a city of several million and not to an 0.5 million town.

This one looks awesome...at least it gives off the impression of not even being underground:

Here is the network.

Basically all lines have a 30 minutes frequency.

Why are these stations that huge? I really like them, but they seem almost too huge for Leipzig.

Because stations are built regarding more or less German wide S-bahn standards (exceptions for Berlin and Hamburg). This means 215 m long platforms which may be oversized for 1million potential S-bahn users in Leipzig but not for the 3 million of Frankfurt, Stuttgart, Cologne-Dusseldorf or Munich. Some lines in this areas run 10 minute services during peak and still are crowded using 215m trainsets.

There is movement in the project for a new central station in Munich.

The office of Auer + Weber was contracted to do the general planning for the new station. The new station will be built around the second city cross rail for suburban trains with two more platforms around 42 m deep.



Munich central has about 450.000 passengers daily as one of the busiest stations worldwide and is a local hub for metro links (U1, U2, U4 and U5).
