Especially considering how you can get to Nanjing in half the time from Shanghai...

Yeah Line 11 is one of those lines that desperately needs a parallel express service or do what they do with Line 16 and have express trains bypass stations on a side track that switches off the main track at a station

Parallel express service along the full line? I don't think so.

Pure Alstom models, rather dull in terms of look.

Shanghai Daily



A tram passes in front of the Kai Yuan Med Shopping Center during a trial run of Shanghai’s new tram line, the T2 in Songjiang District yesterday. Fifty local residents took part in the run covering four stops — Jiangxue Road, Xilin Road N. , Kai Yuan Med Shopping Center and Wenhui Road — over more than 2.5 kilometers. The district information office said the service from Canghua Road Station on T1 to Longma Road Station on T2 would be tested in early 2018. Both lines are expected to begin pilot operations in November next year. Shanghai revived its historic tram system in 2010 with the Zhangjiang Tram service, still the only line in operation.
