Medborgarplatsen (Tub1, all lines)

Medborgarplatsen was opened on 1 October 1950.  Originally, the station was called Södra Bantorget and was a stop on the tram subway under Södermalm that opened in 1933. Its name was changed to Medborgarplatsen later in the 1930s. In some of the photos below that show the station roof, you can still see where the overhead wire was hung when the station was used by trams.

The north end of the platform. I took this photo to illustrate two things: the narrowness of the platform at this end, and the yellow dot on the platform, which marks the spot where the driver of a northbound train must stand when spotting the doors (if the driver doesn't stand here, he or she will not be able to spot the entire train).
