Do trams share tracks with metro?

No, they don't.
But older trams and older U6 kind of look similar, you're right!

The Line D, O and 71 are going to be renamed in the year 2009 as well.

Line D becomes Line 3
Line 71 becomes Line 4 and it will extended from Schwarzenbergplatz (current terminus) to Börse (stock market) towards Schottentor.
Line O becomes Line 7

wow that's a surprise...
where did you hear that?

somehow i can understand those changes... maybe it's better to have only numbers so people won't get confused...
seems like they are filling the gaps with numbers 3,4 and 7...
i always wondered what happened to those numbers...
like in Zagreb there are numbers 1-9, then 10 is missing, 11-15, 16 missing and 17 is the last... but that was the result of past changes in transportation...

Line O to 7 is not official yet I think, but it will also renamed sooner or later.

I know, many lines are missing, because those lines were replaced by U-bahn lines or bus lines, for example line 21 is replaced by U2

Especially with busses having combinations of numbers and letters.

Wagenwiese is the name of a huge railway/metro areal between Heiligenstadt and Spittelau, near the northern end of U4.

U4 washing facilities:

Southbound U4 (type V)

Lots of tracks...

A regional train, probably bound for Krems or St.Pölten in Lower Austria:

A northbound U4 train (type U) after departure from Spittelau. The top level of the glass building is where U6 stops, as it crosses U4.

The same train a little later:

I love the old trains! they are so nice, so different and uniuqe! they look like huge dragons! They have some kind of soul! i regret they designed totally new look for the new fleet. the new trains are just 'new' and 'modern', but they could change all except the external look, which is very 'strong'.

Post more pics with the old train, plizzzz!

@ Falubaz:
If you are talking about the old underground trains, you might be in for a treat pretty soon.
