2002 German Trip
Author: Bob3985

In 2002 I had an opportunity to tour Germany for 10 days. I had friends (Andreas and Wolfgang) to help me get around.
So I started out in Adreas's back yard, Berlin. Here are a couple of commuter photos.
First are a couple of commuter trains.
Second is in Berlin and an over under view.

Thanks for the photos. The livery of the Berlin metro is very attractive, and is still going strong. Chris uk

Technically these trains are the Berlin S Bahn not the Metro (which is orange). That said the principle is much the same: relatively high frequency (especially in the central area) all stations services. The S Bahn goes out a bit further (for example outside the formal city boundaries) and tends to be more above ground than the U Bahn. That said they are used in a pretty similar manner and tickets are interchangeable.
