Berlin-Gesundbrunnen station in 1985. This entrance led to the then disused Ringbahn lines, and so was closed for the duration. A ghost sign for Deutsche Reichsbahn is above the station name. This station did still have Lines U8 and S2 running through it underground, though.

Berlin Bahnhof Neukölln in 1983. The date is on the poster to the right of the doors, visible in the full-scale scan. At this time only the U-Bahn line 7 was operational through this station. The S-Bahn lines here were closed, not to start up again until 1992.
