After solving different problems with the doors Siemens said that C2 trains will be in service in the next few weeks. So, I think the trains will be ready for service till the end of this year.

Today the first of eight Siemens Avenio trams entered passenger service on line 19 between Pasing Bahnhof and St.-Veit-Straße:

Also i like the Design of the Variotram more this new trains are so essential for the network. I still can not believe why they do not introduce 60m+ trains on the heavily used lines (17/27/20). Or if they do not want to extend the platforms buy simply more Avenios to decrease service interval.

The capacity on lines 20 and 21 will be increased step by step. There is an ongoing tender for new trams which can run coupled together. This will look like you can see in this visualisation:

The real lenght of Avenio "two stucks" is more or less 18 meters, not 16 (as writen under the picture)

I would rather like to see 2×27m. For what this 16m boxes should be used when uncoupled?

The 16 (or 18 m) "box" could be a motorized (and eventually driverless) trailer serving just during pic hours,
and may be there is no place for 54 m trains in some stations.

They could extend stations to serve 27x27m trains. Especially on the relationship between Sendlinger Tor and the northbound lines 17 and 20. A motorized trailer seems to be not reasonable!

May be, it could be difficult to extend some platforms, due to stairs or curves ?

Some of my videos of the Munich Transport network.

First - the S-bahn. This is an excellent system and I love the rolling stock in use too.

At the airport here with the S8 pulling in.




Marienplatz having arrived form the airport on the S8.




Karlsplatz Station showing the frequency of the S-bahn.

More Munich public transport - the fantastic, clean, efficient and artistic U-bahn.

Going to the U-bahn (U4/U5) at Karlsplatz

Walking to U1/U2 platforms at Hauptbahnhof.

Trams in Munich are very efficient and a great addition to the transport network of the city. Here are a few shots of various tram stops in the city.

At Hauptbahnhof




At Rotkreuzplatz (Tram 12).

Now just a couple of views of very key stations in Munich.

Karlsplatz - this looks FANTASTIC. There is no other word for it. I wish stations looked this good in Stockholm.




A massive tour of Hauptbahnhof showing all the renovations of the station.

Are you serious? Of cause Karlsplatz is nice. But Stockholm is a city with the most outstanding underground architecture worldwide, besides Montreal, Moscow and some others.
