Really?

Id prefer this anyday:



Too bad that the square is gone aswell, as a result of the heavy fighting that occured there during the battle of Berlin.

Soviet soldiers storming a U-Bahn entrance in 1945:

Heres an aerial pic of that area:



You can see two modern residential houses in the upper right corner and one below under the U-Bahn tracks. (disregard the green arrow)
That was the spot where the U-Bahn used to pass through the buidlings.
As you can see, the old buildings are all gone now, and have been replaced with these modern buidlings.

Historic pic showing the train coming from the station Bülowstr to approach that buidlding underpass






This is the same spot shortly after the war:



The Bülowstr. station:



The station Nollendorfplatz after ww2 and the heavy fighting that occured there:





Underground station Stadtmitte in the 30s:




very comprehensive site for the Berlin U-Bahn:

I remember arriving in Berlin by air, and catching a train from Shonefeld to Warcshauer (spelling?) station.

The train was one of these ones:



We couldn't believe how ugly and gross it looked

But we loved Berlin anyway. It's my favourite city on Earth.

Lovely decor... NOT!

I know that the S-bahn rolling stock had a huge refit recently.

EDIT: This is the standard new interior for S-bahn trains:

these are some special "anti-graffiti-decor". they are designed to be "unattractive" for graffiti tagging. once you would tag that decor, you'll be not able to read your tag properly.

When I was last in Berlin, there was an S-bahn dining train using some beautiful old stock. Does anyone know the website for this?

Berliner S-Bahn is my favourite one in Germany and it has one of the best trians for metro-like service in the city. i like most the sound when speeding or arriving at the station. i got it on my cell phone as a riong bell.

I was in Berlin a couple of years ago and absolutely loved it and is one of my favourite cities. Unfortunatley though I only have one photo to show of the s-bahn. I cannot remember what the area is called where I took the photo but it was where all the museums are.

I thought I was the only one who really liked the sound of the S-bahn! It's even nicer than the new H and HK series trains on the U-bahn. Oh dear, transit geek inside me talking...

I reckon S-bahns are a fantastic idea in general though, and Hamburg and Berlin have two of the best.

Makes me miss berlin so much!

Especially Freidrichstrasse station. I remember going there to buy Wodka a few times.

Feel like going back to Berlin for a holiday with me Svartmetall?
