It is not a light rail according to the international standards, but it is according to Chinese standards due to its capacity... I find the Chinese definition of LRT a little weird.

轻轨/轻铁 can be ambiguous it can be either "light metro," "LRT," or "elevated rail"

That is more than weird. I can understand when thay talk in this way about line 5 or 6 with short trains and huge intervals. Even though these trains as of their capacity are equal to let's say "Normal" paris trains.

But line 8 features 6 - 7 car trains which are some 115 - 135 m long and the intervals are decent. It is no way an LRT.

it is just the common mistake by public. the official has a particular definition for light rail.

the size of trainset that is being use on Shanghai line 8 has decided it is a light rail line
that's why they named their system as Shanghai Rail Transport in Chinese

nonsense
轻轨/轻铁 is no way meaning 'elevated rail'
would you say Beijing - Guangzhou 'light rail' as it is elevated? or Beijing-Shanghai 'light rail'?

If the majority of the Line is elevated and/or uses smaller trains like 4B sets or any C sets. Chinese people tend to call it 轻轨/轻铁. They should just rename it to 天轨 (tiangui), make LRTs as 轻轨, keep trams as 电车 and trolley buses as 无轨电车.

Any chance of getting that PDR Metro map posted up on the thread itself? I can't seem to open the file.

It's a .pdf file, meaning you need at least Adobe Reader software to open it - it's not an image file. If it's because you can't load the filedropper webpage in order to download the file (as of this time the link still works for me), I know that you specifically can open my public Dropbox links, so here's another copy temporarily from me: https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/...er%20Metro.pdf

You can also register on Ditiezu and download the original image file (which is gigantic) from the author's post, but you have to first download it as a bunch of compressed files and then extract it.

Note that this file won't be kept there for long - please either use the original ditiezu link I provide or the filedropper link in the other thread in the future

why 地铁 has to be underground? if it has to be underground, why the chinese government not using the word 'Underground' in their sign for the city like London?

----
and you should know the word "地铁" comes from Japanese

sorry i didn't mean CRH lines as well just the normal railway on the ground.

when the hell does '轻' means 'elevated'? nor even in chinese!
stop delivering wrong information to others and you will make it even 'more wrong'.

if metro means 'underground', your phase will actually be 'elevated underground rail'. will a metro line become a light rail when it goes from underground to overground even on the same track?

Longhua line trainset extension on the go

the first two 6-car trains will start to operate from 26th Jan, during peak-time on working days only for the first few months and will then run in other times by joining the incoming transformed 4-car trains. all 28 trains will complete their change in 2015.

and some fairly old stuff where presented the uniqueness in the design aspect of Shenzhen Metro
