I like the design, it's kind of futuristic and perhaps unique as well.

I thought it's just a gap between the front panel and the side skin.

There are a handful of YouTube channels which post these cab rides (Führerstandmitfahrt, in German), both from U+S-Bahn trains and trams.

Berlin mulls U-Bahn link to Märkisches Viertal
Tuesday, April 12, 2016



THE mayor of Berlin Mr Michael Müller and Berlin senator for transport Mr Andreas Geisel confirmed on April 8 that the city is looking at options for the extension of U-Bahn line U8 from its current northern terminus at Wittenau to serve the Märkisches Viertal residential area in the district of Reinickendorf

According to Müller and Giesel, the 1.2km extension could be constructed for as little as €80-85m because a suitable 600m tunnel already exists along part of the route

Well, Märkiches Viertel is definitely not one of the most densely populated parts of Berlin, but a U-Bahn station is a good thing, especially because most people there rely on the M1 tram to go anywhere. If they do start works on that extension, I just hope there are no severe delays as we've seen elsewhere in the Hauptstadt.

In this case, I guess delays will be at an absolute minimum as half of the tunnels is supposed to be already done and MV is really far away from the center. On the other hand, I personally got to know the guy who's been sacked lately for saying the truth that everyone already knew about Berlin Brandenburg International Airport a few years ago. Nicccccce.

Well, to be fair, BER is also far away from the city center and half of it is also already done (and is known as Schönefeld). I get your point though.

At the moment M1 is not an option for any inhabitant of the MV. Most people rely on busses, e. g. the M21, X21. To be exact, densitiy of population in this area is comparable to that of the Gropiusstadt, Hellersdorf and Hönow, all of them with Metro. MV just missed the point to get this U-Bahn built as in 1989 Berlin wall fell down and priority was given to other projects.

The eastern end of M1 is of minor importance as you can only reach Pankow which is not a primary destination from MV. Traffic-shemes show that most people from MV travel to destinations like Kurt-Schumacher-Platz or Jungfernheide by bus. Basically a metro would change this behaviour I suppose. M1 would be used more if it would reach the center of the MV to get some people there for shopping e. g.. If they would extend both, U-Bahn and tram and let them merge at Märkisches Zentrum both systems would benefit most.

Kind regards

I think the best solution would be extending M1 to Wittenau station. It could later be extended via Kurt-Schumacher-Platz to U Seestr., where it would join the existing Wedding track. Trains could then either terminate at Virchow-Klinikum or Björnsonstr.

I wonder if any of that still exists, or if it could be reconstructed.

There is something similar just west of Gleisdreieck, where the U1 bridge ends into a building. It then begins to descend until it runs underground, and the whole ramp (from level +1 to -1) is encased in concrete and partly embebbed in the buildings foundations.

A quick search on that image tells it was the U2 at Bülowstr., so my best guess is that it was this point (with the holed house not existing anymore).
Also the shape of the road remained the same.

[yes, Street View in Germany is a big pain in the Arsch]


Something interesting is that the setting of the picture suggests a decently active neighbourhood, while today the same area seems rather marginal... probably because the whole Gleisdreieck area was for decades a big wasteland.

Due to Photobucket f*cking up, most images won't be visibile in my old posts. If you need anything specific, please write me.

There is another one a few metres further north which still exists.

Here you can see an aerial picture of the area from 1928. With the slider you can compare it to today: 1928.tagesspiegel.de/#3u12u8i (sorry, can't post clickable links yet).

If you're interested in Berlin's shortest underground line U55, then you should have a look at this video:
