But just how detailed are they actually? The photos available on the web are obviously not showing much in this respect, and the price looks shocking high as a result!

I've not seen the train up close yet but the buses are pretty detailed. You can see the EZ Link machines. If you seen the HK buses models, that's almost as good as it can get for that price really. Only complaint I have is that the wheel axles are a tad too short so the wheels don't look so realistic.

One North People Mover System
- The one-north transportation system is designed to provide seamless connectivity between one-north and surrounding areas, such as NUH and the existing North Buona Vista MRT, to the key nodes within one-north.
- The one-north transportation network consists of a two tier of transportation modes. In the earlier years, an interim shuttle bus service with intelligent information systems is planned for and will be implemented to serve one-north's initial developments Biopolis (Life Xchange) and Fusionpolis (Central Xchange). The interim system caters to the hectic schedule of the work and live population in one-north by ensuring that the services are always on time and convenient.

Well...dont people seem to think that "efficiency" equals high frequency? That is how ppl seem to think the system in hk is better. So I seriously dont think its an issue of us packing more ppl per train. It will be cool to have one train every 1 min. Actually..they are already running between 2-3 mins frequency during morning peak hours. I was quite amazed by that already!

Train frequency is up-to-standard during peak hours.......I usually don't wait for more than 2 min......

You know for my daily commute to school..the only reason why it takes so long is because of waiting for the bloody bus, and I have to wait twice. The first bus trip is only 5 mins or less. Then the mrt takes 20 mins. the next bus should be about 15-20 mins ride. But I end up needsing about 1 and a half hour sometimes, because of waiting!

I think the frequency of bus should be looked into.......especially to areas where there are high traffic demands( like orchard and kent ridge).......
