The Stadtbahn, or City Railway, built in 1874-82, is 10 M.
in length and stretches through the N. half of the inner city from
Westend-Charlottenburg on the W. to Stralau-Rummelsburg on the
E. It is connected with the Ringbahn, built in 1867-77, which
runs through the N. suburbs and makes a wide sweep round the S.
portion of the city. Trains run on the Stadtbahn from about 5 a.m.
till after midnight at intervals of 2-5 minutes, and on the Ring¬
bahn every 10-20 minutes. There are only second and third class
carriages. Fares for any 5 stations 15 and 10 pf. (monthly tickets
472 and 3 Jl), beyond that distance 30 and 20 pf. (monthly tickets
7 and 472 Jl)- No time should be lost in taking seats, as the
stoppages are extremely brief. Notice-boards indicate the point at
which second-class carriages come to a stand, the name of the sta¬
tion, and the direction in which the trains run. Passengers accident¬
ally carried past their destination may return thither without extra
charge on applying at once to the station-master.
The Stadtbahn has four tracks, of which the two northern¬
most are used for the intramural traffic and by the Ringbahn trains
(see below), while the two southernmost are traversed by main¬
line trains (see p. 1; special entrances). All four tracks are used
by the suburban trains. The stations are (from W. to E.): Char¬
lottenburg (PL G, 4), Savigny-Platz (PL G, 7), Zoologischer Gar¬
ten (PL G, 10), Tiergarten (PL R, 10), Bellevue (PL R, 14), Lehrter
Bahnhof (PL R, 18, 21), Friedrich-Strasse (PL R, 23), Bbrse (PL
R, 26), Alexander-Platz (Pl.R, 26), Jannowitz-Brucke (PI. R, 28),
