Chengdu Line 2 open

Chengdu's second subway line, Metro Line 2, opened Sunday after several years of construction and anticipation.
The line runs from the Chadianzi transit station in the city's northwest to the Chengdu Administration College in the southeast. A journey the entire length of the 22.47km, 20-stop line takes 45 minutes with trains traveling up to 80kmph. Trains run approximately every 5 minutes with 17 trains running simultaneously at any given time.
The first southeast-bound train runs at 7 a.m. and the last at 10:30 p.m.; times are 30 minutes earlier for northwest-bound trains. Ticket prices range from RMB2 to RMB5 depending on number of stops traveled. The line intersects with Metro Line 1 at Tianfu Square.
Tickets for Line 2 will feature 10 different designs of nearby scenice places, including Qingcheng Shan, Dujiangyan, Wuhou Temple, the Panda Research Base, and Huanglongxi and Ping'le old towns.
Unlike the Line 1 ticket machines, which dispense only coins for change, the Line 2 ticket machines will dispense RMB5 bills if the change can be thusly divided.
The other notable difference between the Line 1 and 2 stations is, of course, that Line 2 stations have gender-specific restrooms (Line 1 stations notoriously have non-gendered bathrooms).
A spokesperson for the Chengdu Metro Corporation said that Lines 3 through 6 will be open by the year 2018, and construction will begin on Line 7 by the end of this year.

Wow. I remember being in Chengdu in 2007 and seeing line 1 under construction.

One of my favourite cities in China. Would love to go back and see this system now.

I derived them from urbanrail.net descriptions of each metro. Some are not really crucifixions. Minsk is an X; Daegu is a chromosome . . . .

ANREN | Tram

Once China had some great tram networks in some big cities, but except Changchun, Dalian & Hongkong, all were closed in 60s & 70s. Almost after 70 years, a completely new tram system opened in China, this time in Anren.

Thankfully, China haven’t forget tram completely, side by side of metro booming.

Anren Tram is an old style system, with high floor, and bow collector. It suns through the old city area with a nostalgic view.

& photo.


POST AS MANY AS PHOTOS OF ANREN TRAM HERE.

Is it only one-directional? I am not a fan of those systems as I think they are not very practicable.
