It sounds as if you've already gathered all the information about Tianjin's trams that is readily available in English. If historical maps and detailed accounts of individual lines, etc, were out there on the web, someone would have posted them here.

If you want to dig deeper, you'll need to contact Chinese tram enthusiasts, ask politely for their help, and be prepared for the possibility that you won't be able to find out everything you want to know. Your questions amount to a demand for a complete history of the Tianjin tramway, something that may not exist even in Chinese. Primary evidence (maps, photographs, documents, etc.) may no longer exist at all, or might be locked away in closed archives. (BarbaricManchurian or other Chinese members will have a better idea of how difficult historical research is in China.)

Underground networks have to be moved also with the Translohr system. It is not mandatory, nor it is with trams, but if you don't do it, you have to close the line during works on these networks.

Translohr system is as expensive as tramways but can be built only by one productor unlike tramways. It's like Windows versus Linux.

They seem to be quite reliable. I can't remember the name nor if it's made by Alstom or Bombardier.
Rouen and Las Vegas buses are built by Irisbus (born after the fusion of part of Iveco and Renault), the optical guiding system has been developed by Siemens but can be mounted on all types of buses.

TEDA tram has an interchange with BMT line 9 and there are no other trams planned. Honestly, even I, someone who has lived in Tianjin for a long part of my life, have heard very little of the tram system, it seems like you will not get much more info unless if you learn Chinese and consult the right sources, as despite my Chinese fluency, I have heard very little about the tram from listening on the street and in the Tianjin Museum, you'll have to find some highly specialized people to learn more, which may or may not exist.

This is the new rolling stock. Are the old stocks still running? Or, they has completely replaced by new ones?

The line 9 will be actually the extension of light rail. Light rail is already running in Tianjin, and here it connects metro with tram. Line 9 is still under construction, so after completion, I think it should be better to rename it B1 like existing light rail.
I’ve heard line 2 & 3 are still under construction. Has they opened? If not, when will they open?

At last a request. The map is good, but it is labeled in Chinese. Can anybody post here an English map of Tianjin metro, with all planned lines from 1 to 8?

Waiting for reply.

These are the main problem of Asian tramway history. Even South America keeps history better. I've also searched detailed history about Dalian's tram, especially about closed routes, but still I haven't get answer.

Best hopes for posting details about Tianjin's previous tram system.

Can anybody post here a complete English map of Tianjin's full metro network, which will include from current line 1 to proposed line 13 completely? (excluding light rail lines)

The probably don't exist, unless someone's taken the effort of transliterating the Chinese map.

So I think, line 1 is metro line & line 9 is light rail line. There is also a rubber tired tram line (translohr). Tianjin now has metro, light rail & tram. Is it true? Please clear my confusion.

*** When the construction of subway started, was the tram tracks (closed in 1972) was discovered under the road in the time of tunneling?

Please reply me as soon as possible.
No

No, and yes. The old metro was completely closed for 5 years as they refurbished it, and all traces of it are not visible now.

Line 2 will open in 2010, line 3 in 2011. Sorry, no English map available, the numbers of the lines are clearly labeled on the Chinese map though, and all of the station names are just going to be transliterated Chinese anyway

Tianjin Metro Line 9 opened on May 1, 2011.

I travelled on the new section this morning. From Shiyijinglu to Donghailu, 56 minutes, ¥9.

No. I didn't take any photos. What opened on May 1 were three new underground stations (Shiyijinglu, Zhigu, Dongxinglu) on the west extension of the BMT's Jinbin Line. Tianjin Subway Line 9 is another name of the Jinbin Line.

The new BMT system:

(Tianjin Railway Station) - (Dawangzhuang) - Shiyijinglu - Zhigu - Dongxinglu - (underground -> elevated) - Zhongshanmen - ... - Donghailu

Tianjin Railway Stationa and Dawangzhuang is scheduled this October.

The opening of new stations on Line 9 seems to be the first expansion of the Tianjin Metro in almost five years.

Tianjin Metro Line 9 to Fully Operate in October
May 06, 2011 eChinacities.com

The section between Zhongshanmen and Shiyijing Road of Tianjin Metro Line 9 has recently begun operating on a trial basis. The line, which extends to Tianjin Railway Station, is expected to officially open this October. Two other metro lines, Line 2 and Line 3, are also under construction and will be completed within the year.

Well, I wasted time writing the original thread, even including some of my own pics and got no response. But it's true that there's been little news regarding Tianjin metro since 2006, just the line 9 extension, but there are tons of plans, very long term though. The construction speed has been a little disappointing.
