Mostly its the center. Oslo center is very small.

Here is a map showing which stations that are underground.



As you see. Its mostly in the center. One in the north and several in the east. Reason for Oslo to not have entire underground system. Is that its hilly. From center and up it goes up with mountains higher than others.

Well. The red wagons is infact made in Norway. The new white wagons is made by Siemens in Germany.

Another note. Is that I think Oslo got one of worlds biggest metro wagons! I dont know if thats bad or good. But I can certainly tell that half of the wagon would vanish if it went into a London tunnel The most alike system to the Oslo one is the one in Stockholm. The older wagons there are similar to ours, but they are also smaller.

Another note. I have lived in Oslo almost all my life. I also traveled around in Europe and USA. Now I start to realize that Oslo metro is extremely weird metro.

1. Only center part is underground and some parts in the east. After Majorstuen, toward west side. Suddenly Oslo dosent look like a city anymore, but like a vilage

2. Line 1 goes up to 500m above sea level. And there you have a ski resort which is open during winter season. You can also slide down from Frognerseteren down a old bobslade track, then take metro up again

3. The treatment of the system is not quite good at all. Most of the stations which are on surface dont even have shelters for snow or rain.

+++

When travel with the circle line.. you find yourself in center, then suddenly outside .. or atleast not in town wise aspects. Lots of trees, wooden houses etc. and then back...


and that Oslo got only 550 000 citizens. Without the metro, Oslo would halt. As it connects different parts tougether, which makes the city a city funny though.

While in other cities in Europe.. you feel that the metro is a part of the center mostly. Not so here.

Inside the new metro wagons in Oslo. Shame about the color some says, but thats just a debate. I like them.

Back of the wagon. Line 5 towards Vestli.


I just had to take some pics while walking a bit on Sunday. Maybe someone else got some more pics of MX3000? or Gjøvikbanen ?

An impressive collection of modes of transit, especially for its size.

The loop is not entierly underground. In center between Majorstuen and Carl Berners Plass, then in the open air between Sinsen and Storo. Then it goes underground from Storo to half way between Nydalen and Ullevaal Stadion. Then it goes in open air to Majorstuen

Here you can see wich sections are underground and wich are over, none are elevated:



Line 6 is under upgrade and will be all grade separated by 2012, Line 1 will start upgrade towards a semi-metro this summer, but will keep some grade crossings.

Further down the line, these are planned extensions, T-bane: Lørensvingen allows 7,5 minutes on both Line 5 and 2 eastern - Line 2 is extented to towards Lørenskog/Ahus suburb.



For tram a new tram to Fornebu and Bekkestua suburbs, Kværnerbyen and Tonsenhagen and a new Fjordtram to serve the Fjordcity development zone:

I used it, when I was in Oslo in 2008. Exterior reminds me Berlin trains, interior Stockholm ones. BTW 3-car subway train sets are something unusual.
