Isn't this covered by light_rail?

Please note that on the linked page you refer to "Stadtbahn" which is
not a well defined term and the meaning differs from one city to the
other, e.g. the "Stadtbahn" of Berlin is a distinct part of the
light_rail system (between Ostkreuz and Westkreuz, also shared with
ordinary trains).
