Old timey car


I've shown you the modern U-Bahn cars, so now here's a look at one of the original cars from the Berlin subway. These old cars were nicknamed "owls" because of the big bright lights in front. I think they're rather cute! It's pretty amazing that after all these years, the color of the cars has not really changed much. I guess when you have a good formula, there's no reason to come up with a new one.

  3. J'aime les vieux transports. Ca me rappelle le métro parisien que je prenais avec ma grand mère, quand les sièges étaient encore en bois !

  7. I think subway cars are sort of like school buses. They just don't seem to change in any substantial way. At least in looks. Not sure if that is good or bad. Hopefully, the technologies utilized are updated on a regular basis. With school buses, I'm not so sure!

  8. I think it's good to keep the colour the same - not so confusing when the changes happen. ;)
