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

thanks...but it's a bit difficult to use the site when I don't understand German

Sorry if I used the wrong word "funny"...perhaps "different from those I am used to" would have been a better word.

It is not difficult if you only want to see the stations. Just klick on the buttons U1-U9.
Then you can see all stations on this line.

If you´re intersted I can look if I find some english websites.
You´ve been to urbanrail.net ??

the S-bahn is one of the best things in Germany. the french RER or spainish cercanias are coool too, but german S-Bahn is just the best one (under the city rails). if u could, post some more pics of that.

I first went to Berlin in 1989, just after the wall was opened.

U-Bahn trains on two lines went through East Berlin without stopping, except at two interchange stations (Freiderichstrasse and I think Alexanderplatz) where western passengers could change between trains (U-bahn and S-Bahn). In the passageways were duty-free shops, as technically they were in a "different" country.

I also remember being in East Berlin walking along a road where the west Berlin U-Bahn ran underneath - and when there was no traffic you could hear the trains below your feet!!!

Somewhere I still have a 1989 East Berlin map, showing only the trains and trams which were in East Berlin - and a West Berlin map showing the whole system, even though some of it was £on the other side".

It hurts everyone. Because everyone pays to remove it whether or not you like the concept of grafitti yourself.

They´re the biggest city-line double decker buses in Europe (In the world?)

-place for 128 people
-length: 13,70
-breadth: 2,55
-310 ps
-6 cylinder
-height above: 1,70 m
-height below: 1,92 m

There´s video surveillance in the whole bus and a full climate system!

13.7m long! That's even longer than the other German giant - the Neoplan bus!

I've actually seen a double-decker articulated bus in Belgium.





@ aznichiro115 : I was actually refering to the 12-m Neoplan Centroliner that is currently in use. The MegaShuttle never made it to passenger service in Hong Kong.

That's a articulated single decker motorcoach, not a city bus. I don't see 2 floors on that bus, since there is no window on the lower floor of that bus.
