If I understand correctly, Lines 2 and 3 are monorail, and they will meet end-to-end at Yudong. Will they eventually become one line with trains able to run through from Jiangbei Airport to Jiaochangkou while making a loop around the city?

Being on the train you dont feel that. Those pictures are all zoomed, which makes the route so hilly like on the rollercoaster, but in reality they are smooth. Which doest mean its not fun, coz it is!

I really enjoyed riding it too, it gives you a surreal sensation because you get on it at an elevated station, then at one minute you are going pass someone's tenth floor balcony, another minute you are in a tunnel, then you are at street level, by Jiefangbei you are in a subway.

Also, some of the line logos look like IKEA's. Should they be inverted?

The monorails look really "professional", not like Disneyland.
