Announcements from the Berlin subway
Please choose among the following lines:
Please note: Not all of the announcement reflect the rearrangement of subway lines in December 2004
Small gauge lines (all announcements from 2002!!):
These lines account for the oldest part of the subway system and operate directly underneath the surface of the street mostly from west to east. The tunnels have tight curves and require narrower cars.
Large gauge lines:
The first large gauge lined opened in the 1920s and operate mostly from north to south. Cars travel at a faster speed because the curves aren't as tight, the tunnels are wider and located at a deeper level. Consequently, wider cars are used.
