I don't think the U is big enough.

Due to incomplete building work, Regional & ICE services will not run between Spandau and Alexanderplatz for three months from 28.08.2015.

Alternative routes will be used instead (i.e. via Gesundbrunnen).

Also, the s-bahn will be out of action along the same route in 2016.

Can only say as a commuter from Falkensee, this should be a fun quarter!

* Can't post a link to the story as I have less than 10 posts...

DB to be directly awarded Berlin S-Bahn operating contracts
04 Jun 2015



GERMANY: The Länder of Berlin and Brandenburg have announced their intention to award the incumbent S-Bahn Berlin GmbH subsidiary of Deutsche Bahn two ‘transitional’ contracts to continue to operate the Berlin S-Bahn network’s North-South and Stadtbahn service groups until planned competitively-tendered contracts are awarded.

This follows the direct award last year of a contract to operate the Ring & Branches service group.

The contracts are to be awarded by June 3 2016 and would start with the end of the current contract on December 15 2017. The end dates vary, to reflect the planned timescale for the transfer of services to future operators to be selected through competitive tendering. The planned end dates are:

North-South
  • May 16 2023: S85 (Grünau – Hauptbahnhof);
  • November 12 2024: S25 (Teltow Stadt – Hennigsdorf), S15 (Frohnau – Hauptbahnhof);
  • May 23 2025: S2 (Bernau – Blankenfelde);
  • March 6 2026: S1 (Wannsee – Oranienburg).
Stadtbahn
  • May 16 2023: S9 (Flughafen BER – Spandau), S45 (Flughafen BER – Südkreuz);
  • November 12 2024: S75 (Ostbahnhof – Wartenberg);
  • July 16 2025: S7 (Potsdam Hbf – Ahrensfelde);
  • April 18 2026: S5 (Charlottenburg – Strausberg Nord);
  • November 17 2026: S3 (Erkner – Spandau)

I like these trains of Berlin underground.


If we will have these in Kyiv (or in Lviv,maybe), then it will be good

While I do agree that the H trains are much, much more beautiful, you have to take it into account that those "uglier" (still very beautiful) trains are the IK trains, which are Kleinprofil (small profile) and therefore only operate on the U1, U2, U3 and U4 lines (the K stands for Kleinprofil). The H trains only operate on the U5, U6, U7, U8 and U9 lines and are called Großprofil (big profile). To my knowledge, there is no such thing as an I-series for the Großprofil so you needn't worry, they probably won't be replaced very soon. Even if there were an I-series, it would probably be very different from the IK one. For example, this is the Kleinprofil version of the H trains:


(photo from the German wikipedia)

Compare the image above with the one you posted and you'll probably notice A LOT of differences between the H and HK trains.

My wild guess is that this difference has something to do with the fact that the Kleinprofil trains run overground much more often than the Großprofil trains, thus needing less artificial illumination.

I also thought that, since HK trains were built 3 or so years later, they could have chosen smaller lights because of technological advances. This is really unlikely though.

Headligth of HK has a round. In this event it is so ugly. Also HK has only 1 windscreen wiper but H train has 3 wipers. Also H train has vertical 2 lines (HK-1 line) in front of. HK train looks not very good, but H train looks very good and better even than new trains of Berlin underground

Nordbahnhof and Hauptbahnhof will finally be linked by tram starting 2015.08.29.

http://www.berlin-straba.de/

The circled connection below, which opens on that day, will allow M8 and M10 trams to go directly to Hauptbahnof instead of terminating at Nordbahnhof.

And the new Tram station at Hauptbahnhof is a thing of beauty!

Will they extend this line to Moabit now? Is there political appetite for that?
