Gullmarsplan (Tub1, all lines)

Opened on 1 October 1950.

Gullmarsplan is the major junction point for the three branches of Tub1 (line 17 to Skarpnäck, 18 to Farsta strand and 19 to Hagsätra). There are a total of five tracks -- four platform tracks plus a center track with no platform face -- as well as a layup track north of the station, which is essentially a continuation of the center track.
The platform faces are numbered 1-4:
Platform 1 -- Lines 17 and 18 northbound
Platform 2 -- Line 19 northbound
Platform 3 -- Line 19 southbound
Platform 4 -- Lines 17 and 18 northbound



Looking north from Gullmarsplan

(9 September 2001)
Looking north from the southbound platform at Gullmarsplan, this photo shows a southbound train of C20 (new) stock approaching. Platform 4 is on our right, platform 3 on our left.



Southbound platform at Gullmarsplan

(9 September 2001)
Still on the southbound platform, looking south this time. The train has stopped at the station (on the left-hand track). The large building in the background houses facilities for the transit system, with the ticket hall on the ground floor (one level above the platforms) and staff areas on the upper floors. Behind the building, from our perspective here, is a large bus terminal. Some bus lines also stop in the area in front of the building.

This photo is looking south from the north end of the southbound platform. As you can see, the north end of the station is decked over; roadways and the large building are above. This view shows, left to right, the track normally used for southbound trains on line 19 (note the connection to the southbound track for lines 17 and 18), the center track, and the northbound track for line 19.

North of Gullmarsplan, three levels

(9 September 2001)
This photo shows the area immediately north of Gullmarsplan. The uppermost level is a road bridge, the middle level is the tunnelbana (with a northbound train), and the bottom level is the extension of Tvärbanan to Sickla, under construction when the picture was taken and expected to begin service at the end of 2002.
