I took this back in July and I think this is taken just before entering the Xiejiawan station...but I could be wrong.

What a completely impressive system! I can't believe it's a monorail system too!

I love that portions are subway. Are there any other monorail subways?

Yes, some parts of Haneda Monorail in tokyo suburbs, crossing the harbour, pass under water in tunnel.

True those are monorails that go through tunnels, but are there any other systems with stations underground like Chongqing?

Yes, on the Tokyo Monorail, the Haneda Airport stations Terminal 1 and Terminal 2 are underground,as well as Shinseibijo and Tenkubashi Stations:

*note this video is old, it does not show the new route and station serving the newly opened international terminal.

Line 2 is very similar to Seattle's Link Lightrail, with a combination of ground level, elevated, and underground stations, though Chongqing Line 2's train is way more frequent.

Although I'm pretty sure you are just trolling, I kinda agree that monorail car looks pretty hideous.

Hmmwv, Line 2 is NOTHING like Seattle's Link system. Link is a Light Rail Transport system, similar to Portland's. If anything, Chongqing's Line 2 has characteristics of Seattle's Monorail, but CQ is much higher capacity.

Chongqing Line 2 is very similar (ie, same) to Osaka Monorail (and Haneda Monorail) in Japan; same company for all 3. All three are essentially HEAVY Rail cars on a monorail - hence they can handle crush loads well above 35,000 pphpd.

There is no way Seattle's Link can come anywhere close to this and Link rides on twin rails/track with electricity from catenary. Way different, no comparison at all.

By the way, the city and metro system look MUCH better in person. For some reason (maybe the constant fog) makes CQ look worse in pictures. It is a true hazy steamy city but is wonderful if/when the sun comes out.

I like what Wikipedia says sometimes...

And then there's a list with future lines, which counts up to 18 (The last one doesn't appear on the map I posted a while ago), which is more than twice the initial number (7 lines)!

My comment was about whether station arrangement has anything to do with calling it a subway. Both Link and TriMet have a combination of ground, elevated, and underground stations, just like Chongqing Line 2.
