Currently, 42 FLIRT Type 75 have been ordered to be used for expansion and replacing some of the older Type 69s. (There are currently about 80 Type 69 trains.) Deliveries are ongoing untill 2014. 24 FLIRT Type 74 used for regional trains have already been delvired.

BTW, the commuter rail network was changed around last year, so the map in that wikipedia article linked above is outdated.

Here's the current map:

The style of that map reminds me a lot of the map used by Copenhagen's S-Tog system.

More renders. It seems like the nice looking Kristin Jarmund design is no more relevant.













It certainly looks dark, gray and depressive. I like the on-surface part of it, but the rest could do with some colors.

Is there two escalators from the platform to ground level?

Yes, it seems so. They're going pretty deep.

A few pictures of the building of the Kolsås line:

Those pics of Avløs aren't of the station of itself. As far as I understand, it's something to do with the train depot. Avløs station will look similar to Haslum (and most other stations on the line). The only remaining station that will get a more "generous" design is Kolsås, which will get a center platform and roof covering the entire platform.

Planned upgrade of tram stop and rails at CJ Hambroes square in central Oslo. It's expected to be completed in late 2015.

Proposed upgrade of the tram line and general infrastructure down Kongsveien (the kings road) going from the Ekeberg hill and down to the downtown. There is quite limited space in the lower half of this road and there is therefore a proposal to lead the tramline through a tunnel in the hillside.

Cool render:

Thanks for sharing.

It looks very nice with both stops infront og tinghuset, so it would be nice if they could build it like that.
I also wonder what happened to the stop at Prof. Aschehouss plass? IIRC they have changed it back and forth a while ago. The new stop is not very appellering or functional IMO.

A very small render of possible tram route through Myntegata as part of the Fjordtrikken-project (I believe this is a alternative to the proposed route around Akershus fortress). I thought the renders looked rather interesting, but I haven't found it in any larger sizes. Have anyone else seen it in a larger format?

Sorry to be nitpicky here, but in the very same report you linked to, the tunnel was turned down, in favour of cutting the mountainside. The tunnel options were not only expensive, but the view of the city from the tram when it climbs and descends, is unique, and was considered an important reason to keep the line in the open.

They've yet to decide just how much they're going to cut, though. (Alternatives 6A or 6B)

You are apparently right. I didn't really read the report before posting.

The conservatives (Høyre) have said that they will give 50% of funds required for some public transportation projects in the largest Norwegian cities if they win the next general election on 9 September this year. The projects which are of interest to us in Oslo are a new metro tunnel through central Oslo and the planned Fornebuline. Their proposal otherwise includes further extension of the Bybane in Bergen, a light rail line in the Stavanger region and none-specified public transportation solutions in Trondheim.

The progress party, which will most likely form a coalition with conservatives, are not in complete agreement on these matters and will probably prefer to favor cars over public transportation. Personally I'm just happy that these matters have become part of the election campaign as it is certainly needed and it provides a break from the usual blabbel about more funds to school, the elderly and everything else without any concrete solution on how do to it, like these election campaigns usually consist of.

There are plans to widen the current tram line at Sæter, Nordstrand in suburban Oslo. Currently it is a single track at the spot where it passes above a road - the plan is to widen it to two tracks to align it with the rest of the line.
