Except for your "::" and (whatever they are supposed to mean except kicking up the thread), do you have any valuable information about how the new lines will look like? Like maps, sketches of stations, info about lengths and if underground or not?

About the new lines, we don't have much more information, but most of them are going to follow the map that is posted somewhere on this thread, done by Daniel.

I'll put here more details, when I have them.

Are the cab doors opened by passengers? I prefer automatic doors.

It can be changed to automatic.
During rush hours it's usually automatic. This way we have the best of both worlds.

In rush hours, they are automatic and all of them open. During periods with less people using them they are opened by users. This is mostly because of security reasons (at night), weather reasons (during the winter , for example...Don't forget that most of the network is overground) and I also suppose that it is best in terms of maintenace...but in this last one I'm just wondering...

Nice video - but it is more about the vehicles, which are only part of the metro system... Why doesn't anyone has pictures of the traction substations, or the information displays, or the catenary???

Really needs some advertisements or something, it looks so bland and boring with just white walls.
