I find that old (and old fashioned) metro line simply amazing

You directely have access from street level downstair to platform level...



To change direction you have to get out, cross the street and go down again :)

Then you have these beautiful narrow stations, with short platforms, low ceiling and small trains





And its style is very unique :eek:kay:

Yes,

London was first.

Budapest second - and Glasgow third!

ps, flash guns should not be usedd on underground railways, as the bright flash temporarily blinds the train driver (whose eyes are accustomed to the dark tunnels) and can cause a safety hazard.

Let me present you with the biggest construction in the city of Budapest. Its the 4th metro line. Here's a map showing the future route. This is just the 1st pahse of the project,planned extensions are present in both southwest and northeast directions.

Here are some renders of the future stations,going from south to north.
First is Kelenföld Railway station. Its a big railway station on the right bank of the city,and has good abilities to be the future "hauptbahnhof".



Tétényi road. Its a large,commie-block residential area,which is also an important spot in the district.





The next is Bocskai road. This is at the edge of downtown,also near some densely populated areas.

Móricz Zsigmond Square. This square of the city is a major transit crossroad. Numerous tramlines and busroutes meet here.



Saint Gellért Square. Its on the right bank of the Danube,next to the Technical University of Budapest. Numerous tramlines pass this narrow square.





Fővám Square. This square is on the left bank of the Danube,next to the University of Economy of Budapest. Also a main transportation hub.



Kálvian Square. The new line here meets the old M3 metro line.





Rákóczi Square. It is deep inside the city centre,along the route of the tramline 4 and 6.



Népszínház Steet





Keleti Railway Station. It is one of the 3 main railway terminals in Budapest,where numerous bus,trolley lines meet,and also the old M2 metro line passes here.





(Credit in advance to everybody who contributed in the Metro 4 Budapest thread in the CE subforum.)

Thanks for showing this to us. The line looks great and the stations are looking good!
I was looking at the map and I noticed the weird national rail system, it looks so complicated:nuts: ! Do you perhaps have a better map of it?
