Good to here about them meeting schedule and budgets. For you non-Norwegians, the last guy talks about how this project is preparing them for Fornebubanen which is the next big metro-project. Hopefully they'll start on that within 2-3 years

Thanks to Oslo for expanding its tram network. Then latest extension is the 19-01-2014: Line 13 extended from Jar to Bekkestua sharing metro tracks (skipping Ringstabekk station). This could be a model for other cities, where both tram & metro has same guage, so tram routes could share metro routes on the same track – less cost, fast extension.

Currently, there are only 6 routes – 11, 12, 13, 17, 18, 19. So it is clear that route 1 to 10 and 14 to 16 has closed. Could anyone say which routes were those? Please write me details about those closed routes.

There have been many changes to the line-numbering over the years. In the 90s it was decided that single digit lines were to be reserved for metro, so all the single digit tram lines got new numbers.

Many lines have been closed, mostly in the 60s. Here's a map of the tram system in 1940, with the numbering that was used at that time:


Source: Oslo-trikken by Hans Andreas Fristad

Not drawn are suburban railways that are today a part of the city tram system or T-bane system. They were at that time operated by different companies. The following suburban railways were connected to the city tram system and ran on the city tram system into the city centre in 1940:

-Vålerenga-Oppsal (converted to metro in the 60s, now line 3)
-Skøyen-Kolsås (now operated to Bekkestua as tram, Jar-Kolsås is converted to metro).
-Gamlebyen-Sæter (Ljabru in 1941), with a branch line to Simensbråten (now tram, branch line to Simensbråten closed in the 60s).

Closed lines are (going by the line numbering at the time):

-10 branch to Korsvoll (first closure, 1949)
-O/13 to Sagene (O was a ring line, the eastern part is of course still intact (part of now line 11/12/13)
-17 to Skillebekk
-17 branch to Rodeløkka
-8 to Vippetangen
-7/15 to Kampen (bus 60 now serves part of this line)
-6/16 to Vålerenga

Of course, there's also been extensions since then:

-Sinsen-Grefsen connection
-Ullevål Hageby (now John Colletts plass) to Rikshospitalet extension
-Aker Brygge line (now part of line 12)

I knew recently that some tram lines & train lines were converted to metro lines, and I thought so that single digit for metro & double digit for tram, another unique idea for Oslo.

The Oslo metro network is a bit different, because instead of separate lines, it has combination and switches to run metro cars from one line to another, and runs through open suburbs, fields, and forests – mainly on surface. It is possible because Oslo has low population.

Thanks to convert remaining lines from overhead wire to third rail. It is cheaper, more aesthetic, and easily maintainable. The most unique section is line 1, which has olmost half portion with level crossing, despite it runs on surface. We can’t imagine it in Kolkata.

Another unique line is line 2, which partly shared with tram route 13 between Jar & Bekkestua. This could be a model for other cities, where both tram & metro has same guage.

I doubt that it is a good example to follow. Any trams that are to share track with metro-trains have to be certified to the same crash-worthiness standards, which today only the "panzer-trams" SL95 are capable of. It is speculated that the combination of trams and metro on this line will be short-lived, and very likely to be phased out with the introduction of new trams.

First tram in Dronning Eufemias gate - and first test run of a new tram track in Oslo since 1999.
Hopefully we wont need to wait until 2018/19 for the first permanent line.

MX3000 cars seems good, I like them. I have a question, do they have emergency exit door in front side of the cars like the Toronto Rockets do?

Quite sure they do. At least there is clear signs of a door in front -> https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikiped.../c2/MX3000.jpg

The MX3000 cars seems very good. Nice design, spacious, good capacity and seems reliable. One downside is that they are not air-conditioned, except for the drivers cabin, so the temperature can go high on warm summer days.

Yes, they do work as emergency exits (and entrances). I have been "lucky" enough to see them in use.

Thanks for information. I'd like to see the photo if someone have.
By the way, it's kinda off-topic but I want to ask, this type emergency exits are rare, as far as I know they exist in Oslo and Toronto's subway cars. Do you know more cars that have rear emergency doors?

In London, largely because of the tight-fitting tunnels.

Here's a photo of an evacuation that took place between Ulsrud and Oppsal last year. Someone was drilling on the surface, accidentally drilled into the tunnel and hit the train.

The new Avløs depot opened earlier this summer. Buildings from the original depot from 1924 are protected and comprise part of the depot. The depot has a capacity of 25 3-car trains.

Future metro and s-train system

Here is a pic of the future metro and s-train system. The new s-train system will be well integrated into the metro system to cover uncovered areas inside ring2.

A new metro tunnel and a new s-train will be built through the city center.

That's a bit optimistic. These are just recommendations for now.

Anbefaler trikk til Helsfyr og tog til Bislett
http://www.osloby.no/nyheter/Anbefal...t-8122760.html

Etter et langvarig arbeid har de tre etatene i samarbeid konkludert med at Oslo-området trenger disse samferdselstiltakene:
En ny metrotunnel (T-bane) på strekningen Majorstuen til Bryn (via Bislett), knyttet sammen med dagens tunnel på Stortinget.
Ny jernbanetunnel fra Oslo S til Lysaker. Den skal gå parallelt med dagens tunnel. En av tunnelene skal brukes av lokaltog og godstog, den andre til øvrig trafikk.
Ny jernbanetunnel fra Nationaltheatret, via Bislett og Økern, til Hovedbanen (dagens togtrase nordover) i Alnaområdet.
Ny trikkelinje på Ring 2 fra Majorstuen - Carl Berners plass - Helsfyr - Bryn.
Ny trikkelinje fra Bryn til Sinsen, via Økern.
Hyppigere avganger – hvert femte minutt i indre by.
