Hi Everybody,

I'm new on this Forum and I'm looking for some technicals information about some trains of Sao Paulo Metro.

I read all the previous 17 pages but I was not able to find the main technical characteristics of Line 5 Alstom Metropolis trains; I'd like to know the main information such as car lenght, width, height, floor height over top of rail, etc.

Does any one could help me?

Thanks to all

Are there in this avenue public transit? In the biggest city in Brazil (I think in South America, but I`m not sure), to solve problem in transport with 1-2 lanes in former railway room? Are they crazy Old industrial railway is good chance to make LRT with modest costs, and that chance used a lot of cities all around world to make there LRT or tramway lines.

their plan is to make that railway a subway and build a boulevard on its place in order to put down the elevated expressway (the other highlighted road) which degradated the region

I don't have such detailed specifications on any train, maybe you should visit the Brazilian rail/metro forum where you can find plenty of professional railfans who know all that:

Here is the official Sao Paulo Line 5 thread:
