There were actually very few grafittis in the pictures. You haven't seen the real messed up places. Here in Frankfurt for instance they scratching their tags into the train windows. There is hardly any train window left without it.

Thanks cityskyscrapers for this pics. I also posted a lot pictures from Berlin metro last time.
You´re right, the stations are old and the most are dirty and Berlin has no money. Anyway they are doing a lot. For example they have renovated the half of the U5. Or they´re building the U55....
The problem here is that when a station is renovated it will be full of tags and graffiti on the next day.
But in all metros, trams and buses we will get cameras now, so there will be not so much scratching anymore.

The trains on pic 2,3,11 are about 40 years
The trains on pic 1,4 are about 20 years also the train on pic 12
Then we have new trains(H-trains), about 5 years old.
And we will get new trains for the small-profile!(HK-trains)

One trivial fact I know is that when Berlin was divided, one line belonging to West Berlin ran through East Berlin, though the trains didn't stop and the stations were guarded by East German soldiers...

other than the grafitti, it doesnt look too bad...

station entrances are funny...(pic #7)

I am assuming that there are new and modern looking stations in Berlin right?

Nice pictures! Looking at these pictures, I hear the automatic women's voice calling "Zug nach Pankow...Einsteigen bitte!" again...

I love the Berlin U-bahn and S-bahn (I know, they are different) systems very much! Yes, much of it is old, just like the majority of the Paris and London networks. But it gives them a soul...I hated and liked the former DDR metro trains (picture #12) on line U2. Very simple shaped, as two motor-driven yellow containers with doors and windows in it on steel wheels and without anything you can call 'design'...Not to say very ugly! When I took the U2 and a train of this type showed up, I felt disappointed. But somehow I loved them.

Too bad you didn't take pictures of the S-bahn system. I think I love it even more than the U-bahn, because of the 1930's atmosphere, still present and visible on many stations.

yeah, I know them. These are the G-type metro trains. You´ll see them for the next 10 years in Berlin, they renovate these trains because they´re very young compared with trains on pic 2,3!

What´s so funny about this station in pic 7?? It´s one of the oldest in Berlin.

Of course there are lots of renovated stations. Look at this website!

I just love it!
It has an unique charm... the old stations and that ancient look! Fabulous!

They should clean the graffiti though. I went there last year, and the stations on line 8, were they were doing renovation works, were a mess.
