You get easy arround. Its no problem. Everyone can English without problems, and the metro is very easy to use, as you see on this map:



As you see, all of the lines goes thru the city, then splitting on each sides. In 2006 the ring will be opened.

Michal

Nice, have a nice trip!

If you want more you can always ask questions in the Scandinavian and Baltic forum at the Euroforum. There are several Norwegian and members from Oslo there.

To see some more from Oslo, visit this thread.

New Siemens wagons for Oslo subway




Production


From the fabrick in Wien.


Nice and easy design, I think.


Inside of the wagons. The Oslo subway system is very wide, and it takes time to travel, so to sit is a nice thing.


Testing the first set at Wildenrath, Germany

A simple and modern and very comfortable looking metro car. The width of it in Oslo surprises me again...

I think because it has a door in the middle of the front. Just like all London (and the majority of all British) trains. A door on the front is in Europe quite rare, while in the USA many metro systems have this feature.

Hehe. It might be one of the richest in the world, but it dosent show at all. Norwegians are lazy, and they argue about everything. They love discussions which leads to nothing.

Atlast they have agreed to build a light-rail network in Bergen )) Took them over 5 years.

The ring was planned to be ready in 1994, but the building started in 2000 or something. So, the oilmoney aint spent at all, its just there for the next generation or something.

Michal

I am infact born in Swinoujscie, Poland. But have been living here since I was five years old. Norwegians dont like to work, or atleast doing a job very good job, before they get paid "very good".

Thats why lots of Polish people comes to Norway, because of lazy Norwegians which dosent want or just dont care about it. The are Polish people comming here to work at farms, painting other houses, helping in gardens and so on.

Norwegians are lazy, and this is a fact. While in Sweden, there are allmost no road-tolls. Here in Norway its everywhere. Because what people cares about here, is money. If they dont get ennough money, no work will be done.

Well, Norwegians are not all that bad,.. they are kind, nice and love their country very much. They also love their region for the most. Norwegians is at point very cold people, but on other hand when they are outside of Norway or not thinking about themself, .. then they can be really nice to be with.

Regards,
Michal
