Fotoeins Friday: Berlin’s familiar yellow blur (U-Bahn, Zoo Station)

The familiar yellow streams through the underground; the familiar sounds of the train wheels clic-clacking over the tracks coming into place, as a train pulls into the station. These are Berlin’s U-Bahn trains, and I’m standing on the “U2 to Pankow” platform at Zoologischer Garten train station. The station is home to U-Bahn1 lines U2 and U9; S-Bahn lines S5, S7, and S75 (as part of the east-west Stadtbahn line); and to various regional trains throughout the Berlin-Brandenburg area.

1 Sometimes the U2 is called the U12 during construction periods along the east-west lines.

I made this photo above on 30 November 2014 with the Canon 6D, EF 24-105 L IS zoom-lens, and the following settings: 1/4s, f/8, ISO500, and 28mm focal length. This post appears on Fotoeins Fotopress at as

    I only used the u-bahn few times during my visits/ competitions in Berlin. For someone like me who is a underground novice / used to Helsinki underground system with only one line the u-Bahn in Berlin is a nightmare :p

      Hi, Timo. I love the network web of all those U- and S-Bahn lines in Berlin. And that’s the easy part, because there’s the bus, MetroBus, and the Metrotram lines, too! It makes this urbanite very happy … though it can get adventurous trying to find route maps, because a lot of these don’t have schematic route maps on the BVG website.
