And then, even in 2006 the rolling stock on the whole was much more modern that in Shanghai.

If everything is ok, tomorrow I'm leaving for China, and I will live right in Hangzhou for 2 weeks.

There are beautiful cars and beautiful trolleybuses in China, despite the message this photo seems to send.
I was just making fun of that Porsche Panamera, I would have said the same if the picture was taken at Monte Carlo. Hangzhou has surprising number of supercars there, mostly newer model too.

Yeah, Shanghai buses are rather outdated. And for some reason, no articulated buses in Shanghai either, even though a LOT of routes here could really use them.

Well, having spent two weeks in Hangzhou I can say busses became even more modern, lots of low-floor ones that I didn't see at all in 2006.

Taxis are also new - Hyundai Sonata and Brilliance mostly. In Shanghai thay are still Volkswagen Santana.

By the way, in Hangzhou now traffic is very congested. Lots of jams on main streets and avenues. It is all due to an intensive metro construction. Mny avenues are just closed for traffic and they are digging right in the middle. Metro is scheduled to be opened by the end of 2012.

HSR stations have symbols, there is one in the center and two to the upper right.

The red Line 1 is opening in October 2012.

It's on the map. It's line 7. Look at the map. It's orange.

Logo can be a bit generic, but I do love the way the letters H and M are fused to form the metro's logo.

Check the Harbin metro logo, it's nice.

As I can guess, the rolling stock is Alstom Metropolis, like that in Shanghai, lines 1, 2 and 10 and like in all lines in Nanjing.

One pics taken with the cellphone by me. The construction plot is not very far from the Canal and Hangzhou towers shopping city, some 300 m away.

Actually judgeing from the first page of this thread, they are B-size trains with a quite distinctive look to them, as its not a copy/paste model from another city. That being said they do look cheaply made.

I thought all new rolling stock on China's metros are licensed produced in China under a Chinese name. Is that true?
