what is normal for you can be completely different elsewhere. In Berlin a typical simple subway station consists of stairs towards the two ends of the platform, a lift somewhere in between, ticket machines on the platform and no barriers when open. Quite effective btw., queuing at the barriers is the last thing you'd want when you're already in a rush ;-)

I'm not sure for all cities, but I think you won't typically find barriers in German subways and light rails.

yes, or are not open at night on weekdays. Usually (where I know of, maybe London is different) the entrances close a bit later than the last train (if it's not continuously operating).
