Well, if we talk about Underground properly, you musnt cross the rails and i understood Oporto's one was an Underground. If not, is a mixture between underground and tram like a "light underground".

Anyway, I really like it!!

I was not talking about the lower deck!
I was talking about a thing that looks like a deck that is placed under the upper deck (approximately 10 m below the trains...)

I was talking about this thing:



It doens't have any use ...but i don't knpow if it is used for maintenance...

I don't think it has ever had any use besides supporting the structure!

I 'm sure he was referring to the lower deck!

if you read carefully you'll realise Porto metro is classifed as light rail. In Portugal we call it metro ligeiro

I love Porto, what a great city. And the lightmetro is fantastic! It's the perfect solution for a city of that size.
