The new Ensjø metro station. From here: http://dittoslo.no/bildeserier/nyhet...sjon-1.7919896



















I still can't believe they didn't put the whole station underground ...

It was partially opened today. It's here:

https://maps.google.com/maps?q=Ensj%...nsj%C3%B8&z=18
(Ignore the line put there by google, the station is located where you can see the tracks out in open.)

The whole area will be going through a (somewhat) urban transformation. This will be built right next to the station along with the 17 story tower shown above.

Just to clarify, it's not a new station, it's just been rebuilt. It originally opened in 1966. Here's a "before" picture:

Could be something to do with saftey regulations that make underground stations much more expensive to build and maintain? Anyway, I like daylight, it makes it more pleasant to use.

I visited Oslo a couple of weeks ago. Obviously not the best time for tram studies/photographing. A few SL95 (AnsaldoBreda) in traffic. Many buses to replace the trams...
Anyway, here are som shots...

They looked into renting foreign trams as substitute for SL95s but decided against it. Many SL95s have received temporary repairs and are back in action. About 20 out of 32 SL95s are now active.

Filipstad will soon be developed as part of the fjordcity-plans. The are will be served by a new tram line. Here are some illustrations of how the planning authorities foresee the planned line (the landowner wants a slightly different line though):



From the diagonal street crossing the whole masterplan:


The connection with Skillebekk. About here and is also shown to the upper left corner on the overview above.

It will still be used by Color line. The overview above show how much development there will be there.

See also here for our separate tread about the project: http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showthread.php?t=1279895

I just wanted to show the public transportation parts of it here.

Video from the newly opening of the refurbished Ensjø metro station.
This station is served by line 1, 2, 3 and 4, which makes it quite busy in regards of departures. However, the area have for a long time been dominated by light industry/offices and car dealerships, hence the name bilbyen(car city). Now the area is undergoing huge transformation, so a brighter day for this centrally located part of the city should come. SSC thread about Ensjø

Anyways, here's the video:

Edit: It have turned out really nice I think, but one thing that should be mentioned is that Ruter has developed a new "metro standard" which is an universal design for metro stations. The standard is not followed at Ensjø.

Video of the station before the transformation:

Not sure if it is of any interest, but here are some historic pictures of Oslos (former Kristiania) tram system:

I don't quite understand the question, but Oslo kinda already has a regional system with its extensive commuter rail system.

If you mean are they getting new rolling stock on the commuter rail - yes these are the new stock.

If you mean for longer distance rail around Oslo, they have new stock that is being delivered currently that are very similar to the Class 75's called "Class 74".

I was referring to their commuter rail network. Sorry for the confusion.
