Ghost stations in the metro of the world

A rather frightening definition of a “ghost station” was invented by diggers who like to get deeper and find an underground shelter more secret. As such places, great metro stations were well suited or unfinished - and these were in almost every major metropolis of the world. The overwhelming majority of ghost stations appeared during World War II: some were used as bomb shelters, while others were simply destroyed. We have carefully studied the archives and found for you seven mysterious metro stations that are not on any map and where the train never stops.

1.

Nordbahnhof
Ghost stations in the metro of the world
Berlin, Germany
In German, there is a special word for a ghost station: Geisterbahnhfe. It was brought into use during the division of the city into two parts: the wall separated East Berlin from West, and the underground trains that went underground simply did not stop at the eastern stations.People could watch from the windows how these premises, which were the key hubs of the capital, were abandoned. When the Berlin Wall fell, many of the stations returned to life: the Nordbahnhof was reopened in September 1990.

City Hall

New York, USA
City Hall Station is the 12th most beautiful subway station in the world. It functioned from 1904 to 1945, in which it was closed forever. The architects did not consider the possibility of upgrading the station: new, longer compositions simply can not stop here. Nevertheless, City Hall is still open for tours.

Croix Rouge

Paris, France
After the start of World War II, the Paris Metro began to work only in the central district. In 1945, almost all abandoned stations were re-commissioned or merged with other platforms. The only exception was the Croix-Rouge, which is now rumored to be guided by local diggers.

Race street
Ghost stations in the metro of the world
Cincinnati, United States
In this city, the entire metro system is ghost stations. At the beginning of the 20th century, cars and horse-drawn carriages flooded the city. City Hall decided to transfer part of the traffic underground. Unfortunately, the collapse of the stock market in 1929 put a cross on these plans: the tunnels were abandoned - apparently forever.

5.

Oldwich
Ghost stations in the metro of the world
London, England
London has the oldest metro in the world. Naturally, here you can count several ghost stations at once. The Aldwych stop was used as a bomb shelter during World War II, after which it was never put into operation again. But local interiors were loved by filmmakers: Aldwich can be seen in "28 weeks later" and "Sherlock".

6.

Alberti Norte
Ghost stations in the metro of the world
Buenos Aires, Argentina
The Alberti Norte station was opened in 1913 and closed in 1953: it was located too close to another station on the line and the trains simply could not reach the desired speed until the next stop. In the 1980s, some cars were equipped with displays on which passengers could see this ghost station.

7.

Camlinge
Ghost stations in the metro of the world
Stockholm, Sweden
In the 1970s, Stockholm began its expansion into the surrounding suburbs. The Kymlinge locality was decided to be connected to the metropolis, the architects had already planned a new metro line and even started building the first station. But the plans remained plans: now the unfinished station is located in the middle of an undeveloped area, where most of the territory belongs to the state reserve in general.

8.

Station Soviet
Ghost stations in the metro of the world
Moscow, Russia
Few have heard of the Sovetskaya station, which was started to be built in the second line of the Moscow metro. It was supposed to be located between “Theater” and “Mayakovskaya”, but then the project was classified. After some time, it was reported that a super-fortified bunker was built on the site of the “Sovetskaya” for the underground defense headquarters of the city.

9.

Valkyrie Plass
Ghost stations in the metro of the world
Oslo, Norway
The city itself put a cross on the operation of this station: a sharp increase in the number of Oslo residents forced the local administration to solve the transport problem urgently. Valkyrie Plass, opened in 1928, was so outdated technically that only last-generation carriages could exploit it.

10.

Correo
Ghost stations in the metro of the world
Barcelona, ​​Spain
Correos was opened in 1934 as the first station of the first line of the Barcelona metro. It closed in 1974 - for renovation, which never ended. Old ads are still hanging on shabby walls, which adds to the station color.
