Harbin Subway Line No.1 will be on trial by the end of 2012

The static debugging of Harbin Subway Line No.1 has already been completed and it is expected that by the end of this month, the dynamic debugging will be accomplished. The trial run is expected to start at the end of this year.
The Subway Line No.1 sprawls from Harbin South Station in the west to Harbin North Station in the east, covering a total length of 17.48 km with 18 stations.

Now that Hangzhou metro is open and Harbin-Dalian high speed railway also is open, how is Harbin metro debugging progressing?

It's not an option.

The extreme low and high temperatures are −42.6 °C (−45 °F) and 39.2 °C (103 °F) [harbin.gov.cn].

It boggles my mind how so many Chinese cities are constructing subways and within such speed. No such luck in the US where it takes years to build just one subway line.

In States ppl are too lazy to use public transportation plus their transport really sucks.
US-cities are built for cars, not for people, hence it's really hard to make a transportation system working well and efficient.

This train has a 'sad face' But still is kinda cool.

Ironic that you would place such a comment in the Harbin thread.

Harbin has had a very difficult history building a metro line (and it still hasn't opened yet, so let's keep our fingers crossed).



Anyway, what I was thinking the other day: if I were to build a metro in Harbin, I would make every last bit of it an underground subway, because of the weather conditions. Why do they still have above ground sections?

Is there? The pictures of of the depot area I thought the entire line was underground.

A 100% subterranean network wouldn't need this:

For example, they have high-power air conditioners and electric heaters under the seats, to keep them running in extreme cold weather, such as -38 C.
Tunnels are considerably more expensive, so I assume that that wasn't an option for more suburban parts of the lines, even though it would make things easier.

I hope there are heated station areas on the outside stations. Heated seats are nice, but you don't want the trains themselves to be too hot, that makes it sweaty when travelling in winter clothing.
