Stadtbahn
A Stadtbahn (German pronunciation: [ˈʃtatˌbaːn]; German for "city railway"; plural Stadtbahnen) is a tramway or light railway that includes segments built to rapid transit standards, usually as part of a process of conversion to a metro railway, mainly by the building of metro-grade tunnels in the central city area. Stadtbahn networks were mostly implemented in the 1960s and 1970s with the long-term goal of establishing a full-scale metro system, but by the 1980s virtually all cities had abandoned these plans due to the excessive costs associated with converting the tramways.
