Yes, without its metro system Oslo would be worlds largest village many says. Oslo alone have just about 500 000,.. but with surroundings about 700 000.

Oslo is the capital of Norway and its also the largest city.

1. Oslo: 541,822
2. Bergen: 242,854
3. Trondheim: 158,613
4. Stavanger: 115,157

So now the circle line is online, going. Many confused train drivers but thats why this day is used to trainup.



So now Oslo got a circle, but atm not a 100% circle line. It changes numbers and runs twice thru the main tunnel

Some updated pics from the new ringline!


From my window towards Oslo center etc


This is our T-bane sign. It means underground, but its a bit missleading as the system is only going underground in center and some other places etc.


New Sinsen station.


Train leaving Sinsen




Blindern station. Here lines 3, 4 and 5 stops. Blindern is the university of Oslo station.


New map


Line4 arrives. This train will take me thru the ring.


Just for fun


Nydalen station. The newest underground station.


Here I am at Storo, meeting Line 5 which turns here.


Between Storo and Sinsen, the metro goes parallel with local train tracks.


Entering Sinsen station


Sinsen station


Now my line is Line6 ... yes its a bit weird this linesystem now, but Line 4 changes its signs between Ullevĺl Stadion and Nydalen from Line 4 to Line 6 direction east and Line 6 to Line 4 direction west

Oslo subway in March


Map of Oslo subway system.








Jernbanetorget station pics. I scaled down the pics and it seems like the colors is a bit wrong. Here all 5 lines connects with Oslo central station.











Stortinget station. All 5 lines stops here. Main entrances to Karl Johans gate (shopping street). This station was the station which connected the east and west lines.

Stortinget is the deepest station of all center underground stations.

Its kinda funny, since Jernbanetorget is just below the street. This is because Oslo is hilly.

The Karl Johans gate is a shopping street stretching from Jernbanetorget station to Nationaltheateret. Jernbanetorget is just under street, while Stortinget is deep underground, ... while Nationaltheateret station is again just below street level.


















Nationaltheateret station is Oslos oldest underground station. It connects with national railway which is also underground.

Actually the national railway underground station is below the subway tunnel.



Our timetable tvs



Majorstuen station. This is the last main station where all 5 lines stops at.

For a town with only 500 000 citizens (area about 700 000), this system is big. There is no million towns in Norway yet.


I hope that more Norwegians here could post more pics. I am living on the westside where there are fewer underground stations.

When I was there in summer 2004, the whole system was deserted. Hardly anyone but me...
Is this the exception or standard?

Lemme guess...
Its summer and people prefer to visit a beach or go somewhere for vacations and they dont stay in the city, so the metro is empty.

Hehe. The Oslo subway goes every 15min until 22.00cet, then 30min until about 00.30cet.

In hollidays, especially summer vacation. Oslo itself is very deserted. People travel arround, so then the subway runs every 15min until 18.30cet

So, all lines. Line 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6 runs every 15min. It means that some stretches got 5min between every train, while in the center between Majorstuen and Třyen. Trains runs every 3 to 5 min until 22.00cet.

Oslo got about 500 000 citizens! Thats not much at all! The subway lines takes more than one hour to travel from east to west.

Simple notes about oslo underground/metro:

1. New ticket machines aren`t in use yet. They have been standing on all stations since 2004. Use the coin machines which are yellow and blue.

2. There are different prices,
atm:

Single ticket: 22,- (30,- from busdriver, tramdriver)
Day ticket: 60,-
7 days ticket: 210,-
1 month ticket: 720,- (subscribtion 670,- a month)
Monthly student 1 month ticket: 430,-
Flexicard: 160,- (8 clips on one card)

All these prices is for Oslo. It means there are no zones in Oslo. If you want to go outside of Oslo borders, its a bit different prices. All prices are in Norwegian coins.

One clip of Flexicard or single ticket gives you one hour to travel without having to clip or pay again.

Line 2 is the only metro line which crosses the Oslo border line. 2 stations is outside of Oslo. Also tramline 13, which goes to Jar crosses the borderline.

3.
Line 1 got 2 wagons only trains. This is because of the curved track upto Frognerseteren which is about 500m above sealevel. Line 1 goes thru center also, so try to stand in the middle of big plattforms if you want to take Line 1 somewhere

Line 4 and 6 is the ringline. This two lines uses 3 wagons at the moment.

Line 2, 3 and 5 uses 6 wagons in peak time, 3 wagons in weekends.

4.
When doors closes, there are no sound in Oslo. The driver says in Norwegian that the doors is closing.

5.
Maximum speed is atm set to 75km/h. Some tunnel stretches is built to handle 100km/h.

hehe.. Oslo is a nice town. I like it. Not to stressed, but in peak times.. between 06.30 - 08.30 and 15.30 - 17.30, the metro and everything is pretty crowded. On other times less.

Thanks so much for the pictures! I'd really like to see some of the underground stations!

Oslo seems to have a really nice metro system. Does it run a night service at all at the weekends?

No. Oslo got no night service for the metro in the weekends. But there are bus services in the weekends.

Oslo got to few people to have a metro that runs every 5mins. So every lines have 15min schedule during day from 05.45 until 22.00 in the evening. Then 30min until 00.30, when it stops. In weekends it starts later, got 30min in morning until 09.00 and then 15min until 22.00 and then 30min until 00.30 on Saturdays and Sundays.

In the center, where all lines meets. You have 3-7min between trains.

Oslo got about 500 000 people, while Oslo-area got about 700 000. We have no million cities in Norway

Thanks for all of that information! If you could show us some pictures of the underground sections that'd be great! I'd really like to see more of the system (other than the standard photos on www.urbanrail.net )
