Farewell to the U2

The “U2” type of trains have been running on the lines through Frankfurt since the U-Bahn service started on 4th October, 1968, and have been a regular sight in Oberursel since 1978.  Recently they have been replaced by newer models – the “U5” is currently in use on the U3 line – and last weekend the day arrived for the last ones to be taken out of service.

For one day only, six of the remaining U2 trains, including three of the original sets, travelled back and forth between Oberursel-Bahnhof and Römerstadt, a route that was not even possible until 2010.  Along the route, enthusiasts gathered to use the last opportunity to take photos their last journeys.

Those original three train sets, numbered 303, 304, and 305, have been restored and repainted in their original livery.  They will be joining a collection of historic trains in Frankfurt that are maintained for private hire and special events. [Read more…]
