Traces of the U10, the never built "phantom line", can be spotted throughout the city; most of the times, if one knows where to look at. The width of Kurfürstendamm station U1 platform speaks of these traces. The station was planned during the 1950s, along with the entire line U9. The U9 was bound to cross the U1 at a deeper depth, and having a crossing station between both lines added up to the West Berlin vision of making the Kudamm the center of a reborn West Berlin. The line U10 was planned during those days too, and the proposal contained in the "200-km-plan" consisted in actually two lines, the so-called U10/U3. Both lines would run from Weissensee down to Alexanderplatz and Potsdamer Platz, and then, split at Kulturforum. The U10 would run south through Kleistpark, Innsbrucker Platz and Schlossstraße (where most U10 traces are found). The planned U3 would reuse the underground current U1 stretches down to Adenauerplatz and Messedamm (where more phantom line traces are found). The stretch between Uhlandstraße and Kurfürstenstraße would be eventually adapted to large-profile traffic but the work at Kurfürstendamm station would be done already. Although with a low ceiling, these platforms are wider than your typical small-profile station platforms, and the distance between tracks and middle supporting columns is compatible with large profile trains.

At Innsbrucker Platz history is hidden in plain sight, only visible for those with a taste for all things U-Bahn. Innsbrucker Platz was, on its day, the southern terminus of the Schöneberg U-Bahn, an independent system back in the 1910s. In those times, Schöneberg as both constructor and operator of its own U-Bahn, had no interest in losing customers to the S-Bahn, and didn't bother building an interchange station here. Even the U-Bahn station was called "Hauptstraße" at the beginning, in order to increase the sensation that interchanging between both networks wasn't practical. The station was renamed to Innsbrucker Platz (Hauptstraße) in 1933, and new signage in Fraktur typography, a staple of the Third Reich, was installed. The tunnel and lobby connecting the U-Bahn platform to the S-Bahn entrance are of course much more modern, built in the 1970s, heyday of the architectural pop art in Berlin. "Rümmlerian" features are easily noticeable especially at the S-Bahn lobby. A wobbly yellow ceiling, very much like that at Wilmersdorfer Straße, squared lamp protections with their corners rounded, and oversized nameplates indicating the station exits are typical of the era. Just changing from U-Bahn to S-Bahn brings the commuter to a short tour along 90 years of U-Bahn in Berlin, passing by the most influential features of each era, including the short 70s A3L type trains.

Tunnels and a few abandoned buildings this morning. Nice to get back out. .

With a hint of good judgment, to fear nothing, not failure or suffering or even death, indicates that you value life the most. You live to the extreme; you push limits; you spend your time building legacies. Those do not die.
