In the early 1970s, Zürich was planning an underground (U-Bahn). The plans were rejected in a referendum in 1973. This artist's impression shows how Schaffhauserplatz stop might have looked. This station would have been built in a single deep-level bore with platforms on two different levels.

Compare this to the cut-and-cover station that was planned at Lindenplatz.
