A map of the East Berlin S-Bahn as it was sometime in the early 80s. I had a nice big long post ready to go to accompany this sucker, but then 217 Congresspeople—my representative included—decided they wanted to see me and my loved ones bankrupt and/or dead, so I’m royally bent out of shape and you get notes instead:

The inset that a lot of the old East Berlin S-Bahn maps have for the western part of the outer ring really messes with my perception of the system, because I think the overwhelming desire to minimize West Berlin led them to omit some outer ring stations, even though I also know that wasn’t the case.
Other resources: this S-Bahn map from 1979 and Max Roberts’ restored S-Bahn map from 1980. Making sense of the system’s peak/weekday/weekend service patterns as they appear on the maps was interesting.
So far as I can tell, East Berlin never gave its U-Bahn lines numbers.
