Yesterday we were at Happy Valley, I managed to take finally some pictures of my favorite Bombardier trains from outside. I'll try to put them as soon as possible.

Now, a couple more things. The first is about trolleybuses. How many lines are actually there in Shanghai apart from line 20? It seems to me this type of transport has been declining in Shanghai in favor of buses electric buses and super capacitor buses. The latter, are they spreading around the city?

Would've been better if they keep the 4 track configuration throughout the whole section and make line 3 an express line that skips stops.

They will probably need to up the frequency on line 4 I guess.
Will there be a name change for line 3? Since they can't have the same name for two separate lines.

Line 11 extension construction completed, station cleaning up to be finished by Aug 20

Line 11 west extension to Suzhou (Huaqiao): 3 stations, 6 km
Line 11 east extension to Pudong: 12 stations, 22km

I guess it'll open by the end of August or beginning of September.


Xujiahui station exit 19

That's quite a crazy looking structure, there! Are there many two line interchanges above ground like that in Shanghai?

ditto. It looks easy for a cross-platform interchange arrangement.
