The camera isn't stabilized. Therefore all of the smallest movements are transmitted into it and exaggerated by a pendulum-like effect.

No, that's not it. You can see that the foreground in the parts of the video that's in the subway is perfectly stable, because that's in the same car as the camera. The motion is only visible through the window in the other subway car. You can even see how the people's heads are moving along with the bumbs.

Berlin orders Stadler U-Bahn trains
06 Jul 2016







GERMANY: Stadler announced on July 7 that Berlin transport operator BVG had exercised a €140m option for the supply of a further 27 four-car Type IK metro trainsets, branded Icke by the operator.

BVG placed an initial order for two prototype Type IK trainsets in July 2012, with options for up to 34 series-built sets. Following tests running with the prototypes, in July 2015 BVG placed a €60m firm order for an initial 11 trainsets, which are now under construction at Stadler’s Pankow plant for delivery by mid-2017. The second batch will be produced as a follow-on to this order for delivery from April 2018. All 38 series-built sets are expected to be in service by mid-2019

Tram to reach Moabit.
A 'Pro Tram' alliance was established which plans to annually invest 100 million euros in new lines.

Straßenbahn-Strecke nach Moabit steht endlich fest

Ein Bündnis "Pro Straßenbahn" hat sich gegründet, das jährlich 100 Millionen in neue Linien investieren will. Und die Trasse für die Verlängerung vom Hauptbahnhof nach Moabit ist geregelt[...]

This is interesting, but who's putting the actual money? Is it meant to be a PPP project, or a lease to the city?

I might be wrong (my German is a bit rusty), but it doesn't say anything about being a PPP.

Berlin S-Bahn mock-up presented
05 Oct 2016













GERMANY: Stadler Pankow and Siemens have presented a full-sized mock-up of the vehicle design they will supply for the Berlin S-Bahn. Built in the Babelsberg Film Studio in Berlin, the wooden-bodied model will undergo four weeks of customer experience testing with around 400 ‘representative passengers’ and members of official associations. Siemens reports that more than 2 000 people applied to take part in the test.

At the end of last year the Stadler-Siemens consortium signed a framework contract with DB subsidiary S-Bahn Berlin GmbH for up to 1 380 electric multiple-unit cars. The base order of 85 four-car and 21 two-car trainsets would be used on the Ring and southeastern branches of the 800 V DC electrified network

I said it when we saw the renders, and I repeat it even more now: the paintjob kills this train.
It looks like they just gave some primer and forgot to finish the job...

It's really time for a new livery.

Yeah, it really looks like they are stuck in the 90ies. Also that new front is anything but sophisticated and progressive. It should represent a modern metropolis.

The renders looked much more "cutting edge", and most of the effect here is lost due to the plain solid color.

Also, the fact that windows are not surrounded by the black strip, and the black doors (for contrast reasons) make it very dull.

I would go with a scheme of metallic black body and metallic red details (doors and cab), something similar to this:



I think it would underline much better the edgy shape (which is not bad).


Or, as I said earlier, just go for the BVG yellow, which works so good with modern shapes and black contrast (and would also make a lot of sense in terms of integration):




EDIT
My very rich editing skills allowed me to draft this fine work of art

The new trains look so ordinary, but in this case, it's more of a good thing. You should treat the S-Bahn like an ordinary U-Bahn as much as possible. This is optically the closest thing to ordinary BVG subways on the S-Bahn without changing the rail infrastructure. It shows some kind of morbid charms in color.

I also did a little redesign:



It's potentially not a bad-looking train!

I was truly put off by the shape when I saw renders, but its not that bad. It could be better, but its not hideous.

As for the paint, I would say meh. The yellow should be brighter, but that's about it. That dark grey and red combo doesn't really fit well on such a big train-too much surface area.

The train is extremely ugly. No paintjob in the world would make it beautiful.
