"Hamburg anon here

>U-Bahn (underground metro) (left side train)
Disruptions happen very rarely, and it runs every 5 minutes most of the day. Many stations are overground or just a few meters below so you usually don't have to navigate a maze of a million subways like in London. Sadly they use short trains too quickly and my line is one of the most congested of the network. I'd give it a 7.5/10

>S-Bahn (suburban metro) (right side train)
Good for the West and Southeast of Hamburg, but disruptions happen very often. Also the trains to the South (Harburg) are hopelessly congested, the S-Bahn runs on limited rolling stock for 20 years now and it's run by Deutsche Bahn which everyone hates. 5/10, if I can take the regional train, I use that instead

>Regionalbahn (regional/commuter rail)
Trains towards Bad Oldesloe (northeast) or Harburg (south) are well-used but you can still get seats most of the time, there's also two trains per hour between Hamburg and Kiel (my university's location) so I can go back to Hamburg every weekend easily. Cons are the regular disruptions especially for Deutsche Bahn-run services and the fact that private operators will have to give priority to Deutsche Bahn-run trains always since Deutsche Bahn owns almost all the rail infrastructure in the area.

It has to do with the low floors. Nowadays low floors are an essential requirement for any tram to allow use by handicapped people. The easiest way for low-floor designs are fixed bogie trams, though the downside is that they handle turns much worse. There's not really an ideal solution to this, there's partly low-floor trams which have normal bogies, but they have steps for boarding on most doors."

Also what's the deal with 3 track gauges being used for different train lines? Surely you would have either stuck to Iberian Gauge or completely converted to Standard Gauge?

They can make corners as tight as any other tram in the city obviously. You know, there are some standards and shit and the transport authority won't buy useless trams. However your friend is right about the fixed bogies and the problem is they require more maintenance than the other trams.
And then there is the problem with brakes which is a manufacturing error and the company is working on fixing it which means you won't see these trams now in the streets that much."

On the FGC (catalan govt railways) lines there's local L services, suburban S services, and R services which aren't regional but "rodalies" which means "proximity" though translated it makes little sense.

There's just no practical reason to regauge anything. Subway line L1, which uses iberian gauge, was never re-gauged, because the subway lines are all quite isolated, so there's little benefit to it. The standard gauge subway lines have service connections, but they don't even share depots, each has their own. This allows for those neat LED thermometers, since trains can only be used on their particular line (or they need to change the LED panels first).
Just the same, there was never any useful reason to re-gauge the meter gauge system (it could be done right away, the specs indeed allow for it). Even if it were connected to other lines, it would need lots of rebuilding because specs are too different (for example low vs high platforms, 6-car trains vs 4-car on the Vallès line, 5-car on the subways), which would yeild little benefit for the expense. Mostly, since all lines are radial, the only benefit would be turning the FGC lines into a U-shaped passing system, and that would need massive re-building or train length limitations, and demand is too different on each system to make it worthwhile.
There's actually a project to extend the metre gauge line from Plaza Espanya to Gràcia station (without inter-operation), though I think it's a somewhat dumb project since it only benefits the more urban services, not the suburban ones which are unpopular because of slow speeds and lack of direct services. Essentially it's just turning this system into yet another kind of subway line, instead of making the commuter branches more competitive, for example with a new entry into the city that avoids the huge detour through Sant Boi (look at a map, the line kinda circles the city). Ironically, I'd bet anything that this will get done before the REEEEtram."

if(Anonymous && title=="" && postNumber==1207528 && dateTime=="06/29/18(Fri)15:27:49")

Oh, also the reason for those gauges are historical. The metre gauge system started as different companies building feeder lines to the mainline railways. In the 19th century a law only allowed for either iberian or meter gauge lines. The last stretch into Barcelona was actually the last one built, in 1912, when all the companies had already amalgamated into one, and they built that line so their system could compete with mainlines for commuter service. Eventually it was modernized, and a new tunnel alignment built between Cornellà and Plaza Espanya in the 80s, that's the part you saw. They try to sell it as a subway because subways give spaniards massive hardons, but it's actually a commuter system with subway-like frequency between Sant Boi (about 15-20 minutes from Pl. Espanya) and Barcelona proper.
The actual subway was built later starting in 1924 and using standard gauge from the start to be able to buy foreign-built EMUs, except line L1 which used Iberian gauge, as it was intended to run mainline services between termini, but this never materialized."

if(Anonymous && title=="" && postNumber==1207530 && dateTime=="06/29/18(Fri)15:29:30")

Oh also what I meant to say was that for the mainline commuter services there are no S-trains, they're all R services. And on the Vallès line (mine) there are no R services, those are only used on the meter gauge lines. Simple, isn't it?"

if(Anonymous && title=="" && postNumber==1207532 && dateTime=="06/29/18(Fri)15:37:03")

Thanks for the reply.
Can you also clear something up for me, because I am actually rather confused by it.
How come there's no proper interconnection between Renfe Rodalies, FGC and Metro lines?
This was something I noted a few times when doing interchanges through stations like Fira Europa (from the L9 to the FGC lines) and elsewhere such as the Placa de Espanya. Now, you look at the Barcelona Metro map, and you will see that stations are pretty much interconnected, but in reality, you have to get out the train, go through the ticket barrier, go to the street level (in some cases) walk quite a distance and then go through another ticket barrier. Now, I get that different tickets are valid on different trains, and I know that different services accept slightly different tickets as well. But with that all said, why not have a ticket barrier that allows you to interchange between two operators while having a direct tunnel, allowing you to directly go from a Metro line to an FGC line to a Renfe line and so on?"

Because of the retarded fare system. Every operator needs to account for their passengers, even if the ticket is valid on all transport systems, so you have to pass the ticket barrier every time you change operators. Then each operator gets paid a certain amount per passenger. It's fucking retarded because in the end the whole system is subsidized, so they could just design a centralized financing according to each transport's needs, since it's all centrally planned anyway, so it's not like it's somehow up to the operators to get more or less passengers. That way they could get rid of those fucktarded barriers. Just today I couldn't get out of my station because the machine wouldn't read my ticket, and there was no worker there to let me out, so I had to get out behind someone else, those gates don't even work to prevent people getting in our out without tickets.
The physical distance thing is relative and quite random, at Plaza Espanya for example it's very close from the FGC station to the L1 station, while the changeover at Pg. de Gràcia from L3 and commuter trains to L2 and L4 is infamously long (3 city blocks). It's all planned somewhat half-assedly, while lot of thought is given to higher train speeds or better frequency, there's almost no thought given to convenient interchanges, or not losing time with long detours to go through those stupid barriers.
I know I complain a lot even though we have decent public transit, what annoys me is that a lot of money is spent but very inefficiently, and we end up paying for that with very high taxes."

You're so daft you don't even know that we've had a single ticket for all public transport since way before madrid, and that your fare system is way more retarded than ours.
>dedicated tunnels or other means of direct connection
are you really so dumb that you think there are no connections between stations in Barcelona? btw I love the transfer in Madrid's Plaza Espanya, really direct connection, the lack of escalators everywhere makes it even better :^)
btw everyone knows the contactless card in madrid has been a gianormous clusterfuck that hasn't changed anything about the even more retarded fare system, except that you now have to buy a contactless card for the exact same type of ticket which you used to get on cardboard. Enjoy only being able to have one kind of ticket loaded onto the card and having to buy several contactless cards if you need different types of ticket :^)
And especially enjoy sweating like a pig in the Metro stations with your 6+ minute waiting times during rush hour while we get a train every 2m30, and every 3m during off hours. Our off hour frequency is literally better than your rush hour frequency. Maybe you shouldn't have been so greedy :^)"

WRONG, I didn't complain about lack of connection, I complained about the connection being far away because of the disposition of the stations
>>complain about multiple tickets

WRONG, I complained about the fare/financing system being retarded because it pays operators by passengers who use it and consequently requires to pass stupid barriers every time you change operator

In Switzerland what sometimes happens is that the aircon is simply insufficient on very hot days, since it's just rarely very hot they never bothered to get too powerful AC units. Maybe the same thing happened up there in Scotland, since they didn't count on too hot weather?"

if(Anonymous && title=="" && postNumber==1211980 && dateTime=="07/10/18(Tue)16:43:31")

Some of the Class 334s have been built 19 years ago, so I'd say it's probably because the aircon isn't too powerful, however they were refurbished 8 years ago and should be getting a minor refurbishment now to fit in power sockets in the trains, so I can't see why they couldn't improve the aircon in that time."

if(Anonymous && title=="" && postNumber==1212064 && dateTime=="07/10/18(Tue)21:44:56")

aircon uses a shitload of power and takes up lots of space, could be that circuits aren't meant for the power consumption of more powerful units, or that they can't fit larger ones.
To give you an idea, I 'member reading that the iconic Hong Kong tramways are experimenting with fitting ac on their trams, but they only installed it on a handful of units, since the electric system couldn't handle all trams running a/c.

Rio de Janeiro south area is rich and the north area is a shithole. Line 1 starts on the southest and higher middle class neighborhood on the north side, the one neighborhood that's not a shithole like the rest, it cuts through it with 4 stations, than it goes through downtown and keeps going under most of the rich neighborhoods on the south area, it turns into a joke called "line 4", which is basically an extension of line 1. It's less crowed and the people taking it wouldn't make /pol/ start the ovens immediately. All of it's stations and tracks are underground.

Line 2 starts at the farthest most neighborhood in the north area, it goes through poor areas, it has problems related to rio's public safety like stations being closed because of drug wars on a nearby favela. It's more crowded than line 1 and it's blacker, it's more annoying to ride cause poor people are indeed annoying. All of it's stations and tracks are above ground.

pic related, orange is line 1, green line 2, yellow is "line 4" and blue are extension busses."
