Unfortunately Nick Lera is temporarily indisposed and has been unable to prepare for the presentation that he was due to give; but we are indebted to Brian Hardy for stepping in and wish Nick a speedy recovery.

The Berlin Underground (U-Bahn) has an interesting and varied history, no more so than through the city’s division from the end of World War Two until reunification in 1990.  Its station styles in this period are many and varied, from the austere stations in the east, to the positively opulently designed stations in the west.  Plans for extensions have been many and varied but only a small number have actually come to be realised.  Like London, it has two generic types of rolling stock (small and large profile).

Cubic Theatre. London Transport Museum, Covent Garden.
