That´s a good question......they wanted to open it to the WM2006 but nothing happened!
Then they wanted to start service to the beginning of 2007.....but nothing happened until today....it´s quite strange because you even don´t read anything about opening in a newspaper and the new stations are nearly finished as I know(I saw on photos)

I heard that the next date for opening is the end of 2007....we just always need a bit longer here in Berlin

What about the projects for the rest of U5 (linking the existing U5 to U55 via Unter den Linden), or the U3 line? "Sankt Nimmerlein"?

S-Bahn in Berlin looks a bit like the metro in Oslo. One thing to make clear is that I think that the metro wagons which goes in Oslo would break half of its roof or sides when running on Berlin subway tracks

I went to Berlin for Xmas time and I saw many of these station. I think that Berlin U-bahn and S-bahn system is one of the most intresting in the word!

Feuerbachstasse station looks remarkably like some of the one in London.

Beautiful photographs. Berlin's metro system looks like a series of palaces connected by trains.

I love the rail system of Berlin. It has a great mix of historical and modern stations, both underground and elevated.

The elevated S-bahn ring that winds it's way above the Northern part of the city is my favourite elevated line anywhere. The historical U1 line, with trains not much larger than the smallest London Underground stock also is worth a visit.

Brilliant system for a brilliant city.

Finally, a decent gap.

I like the history, and the livery which sets it apart from others. Is it me or do companies in Berlin like the colour yellow? Hapag Lloyd had their planes painted yellow for their subsidary.

The taxis have an awful beige vomit-like colour, so maybe it's to make up for that..

I prefer the S-bahn more. The graffiti problem seems not as bad as some other European cities.

Ooh aren't they hard. Break into a station wearing balaclavas to rob a bank, no! Fill a train with explosives, no! Paint it with graffiti, yes! Pathetic

Has it become fashionable to videotape your own crimes? I've seen a lot of these lately (not the train, the film) and they never fail to amaze me. It is as if they are trying to get caught. Other than that, it wasn't that great of a tag.

Becuase they're so desperate to be famous that's why.

They're desperate to have their righting all over a train that many will see, and they're desperate for sados like themselves to think they're 'cool' on Youtube or whatever. What they don't realise, is that most people don't give a toss.
