Indeed. Streetcar line would be more apropriate. But then I would just use Strassenbahnlinie and if my english keyboard would have a "sharp s" button I would use it here to confuse even the last one

When I think about it "D-Bim" would be an even nicer term

Streetcar is American English for a classic tramway. The correct german translation for lightrail is Stadtbahn. In Vienna the tramway resembles partly a modern lightrail and partly a classic tramway.

Well, they were looking for the translation for our good old Bim not for the Stadtbahn, but your are of course completely right.

I've already got big (and I mean BIG) plans for a next major Vienna photography project. It won't be focussing on PT, but if you like this city, STAY TUNED!!! (and if you don't, even more so...)
I think You may recount the BadnerBahn's stations next This could be nice...

It is pretty complete, you are right.
Allthough I would like to have some more subways, because they are faster than overground lightrail tramways...

That might be the networkplan with U5 line included.

Got a bigger picture? I see some lines I can't bring home.
