Isn't it connected with other railway tracks?

Only at very few places, usually at the end stations, and only so maintenance workers can access the system. Only exception is Høje Taastrup, where "normal" trains can access the S-train depots, if they are in need of repairs.

Other than that, the S-train system uses it's own tracks. The S-train system is furthermore level-segregated from other railway lines, level-segregated from itself (for example, at Dybbølsbro station, where the southbound A/E-line crosses over the northbound B/C/H line). Finally, the S-train system is also level-segregated from roads and pedestrian paths.

I hate these kinds of arguments. Is it metro or is it streetcar? Is it streetcar or is it trolley? Is it Sbahn or UBhan. Who cares? In my map I've added metros, light rail lines, heck even Venice water taxi lines. If it's a fixed route public transit route I add it to my map of systems (except bus, ugh I hate buses).

Everybody who wants to create a list. It's metro fans' doom that this argument cannot be avoided and always comes up.

Anyone who uses these system cares. The different design standards have an effect on travel speed and therefore the time people spend on these trains.

This will be Los Angeles in 2020 (more or less).


2 lines are under construction (Expo Line Phase 1 and the Gold Line Foothill Extension Phase 1) and 2 lines are approved (Crenshaw Corridor and the Purple Line Westside Extension).

That Hong Kong map is an older one.

The Tuen Mun (West Rail) Line now extends to Hung Hom, and the East Rail Line (Lo Wu / Lok Ma Chau) now terminates at Hung Hom as well.
