Urban Rail in the Hanseatic City
In the northern metropolis, the HOCHBAHN operates Germany’s second largest U-Bahn system. Like in Berlin, this is complemented by an S-Bahn network run by Deutsche Bahn and equipped with a third-rail power supply. Since 1978, the hanseatic city has not had any trams, but nonetheless, we also take a look back at the history of this means of urban transport.
This book includes everything you want to know about the history of Hamburg's U-Bahn and S-Bahn systems as well as the AKN, a network of diesel-electric local railways in the north of Hamburg. Numerous, mostly colour photographs give you a good impression of the once extensive tram network too.
