Urban Rail in Germany's Capital City
Comprising the U-Bahn and the S-Bahn, the rapid transit system of the German capital is one of the largest in Europe. In addition, even though the tram system was completely abandoned in the western part of the city in 1967, and only re-introduced on a few routes after re-unification, in terms of size the remaining and further expanded network in the eastern part of Berlin is still ranked among the top three in the world! In this book, Robert Schwandl describes the history of the three urban rail systems, their different developments in the long-divided city, and their current operations. The book is illustrated with numerous colour photos and detailed system maps.
