MISC | Walk-through metro trains

Hi,

I'm wondering which of the world's metro systems already have these new types of trains. From the thread about new trainsets as well as my own knowledge I started with a short list and hope many of you can help me to get it as complete as possible:

(I will frequently edit the list in this first post)

Athens, airport line
Barcelona
Berlin type H metro, S-Bahn
Bilbao
Buenos Aires, lines B and D
Copenhagen metro, S-Bahn
Guangzhou
Hongkong
Lisbon
London, DLR
Manila, line 3
Munich type C
Madrid
Mexico City
Milan
Nanjing
Paris lines 1, 14
Porto
Prague
Rome
Shanghai
Shenzhen
Singapore
Taipei
Tokyo
Turin (metro under construction)
Vancouver
Vienna

All Japanese metros (?)
All VAL metros (?; only between 2 cars)
All German metro trams (only between 2 cars)

Any Japanese city, HK, Guangzhou, Shenzhen, Nanjing, Taipei

I've never had much experience with European and American metro trains, so I've always been used to walk-through trains and never really saw trains that weren't. When I was little, Hong Kong's KCR trains were walkable only through three-car units (each train has 3-4 of these units, for a total of 9-12 compartments).

You mean it would be easier to list the cities without the feature?

Yes, I'm also busy in other forums including urbanrail's.

^I don't know which one is the best.... because either way, you will get very big lists.

About urbanrail, I asked that, because I sent recently a mail in the urbanrail.net mailing list about not understanding why NYC subway does not have walk through type trains, and I was thinking if that was what make you do this thread.

Also the trainsets for the new metro of Turin and Brescia will be walk-through

All Tokyo suburban/subway trains are walkthrough, I think. Sometimes when they link up two sets (6 + 4) to make a 10 car train, you can't travel between cars 6 and 7.

Sometimes there's a door you slide open, sometimes there's nothing. It's not like the metros with the impossible-to-open door and treacherous crossing between cars.

micro, I guess you shouldn't include the type of trains in which metro system that are walk through or not, because it will get extremely complicated that way.
I don't know which trains are walk through in Lisbon, but it's not all.
In Madrid, series 6000/7000/8000 are walk through I think. I don't know if any 5000 series are... 2000 series aren't for sure, and the still to come 3000 and 9000 series willl both be walk through.
