The stations can only hold two car trains. A three car train is possible in the future with the use of a very small 10 m C car in the middle, however many of the platforms would have to be lengthened to accommodate that. They are designed to make this small platform extension relatively easy however. Future demands for increased service will be dealt with mostly by more frequent service. Significantly longer trains will require extensive renovation of the system which probably won't happen until the current contract is up in 35 years time.

i cant beleive they used pinspots to light the underside of the train. Flat out tackey, worthy of second rate productions. Or maybe it was just the anlge of the pics. Nice idea, from what ive seen bad execution.

But this is just from someone who soldeirs and sets up lighting for a living... i might be wrong.

It's not tacky at all...and that's probably just because of a poor angle.


Even at that, this was just a test lighting......the final effect will be something like this:

Thanks mr. X for showing me, they need to raise the light about 3 feet and angle it up more. I thought it was final instalation (ill admit in my civie job i did a half ass job like that and i knew it was bad). But its GREAT to see LED Color Changing Tech is catching on. Its a really cool effect and will add greatly to areas where nightlife picks up. We actually light one of our T-walls like that for our status at night. LED is the future man, and the more they use it the more the tech gets perfected. Lets get photovoltaic on the roofs and really get this green shit going.

And thanks for all the pics man, there great
