9.28 Jinshan Rail, (aka Shanhai Metro Line 22) opens today

The 56km line 22 is Shanghai's first commuter rail.

Very cool pictures. Jinshanwei station looks more like a major train station than a commuter rail station. They definitely put a lot of work into it.

Those seats facing the window, Are they always placed like that, or can they be moved by person(s) wanting to sit like that?

They can be turned around to face opposite directions. I'm not sure if it's allowed to turn them to face the window like that according to safety rules though.

It's absolutely not designed to be turned in that intermediate position, it will wobble because it's not locked in, yup I've tried it. Fun, but not safe.

Lost in all the Line 22 hullabaloo was the fact that a new infill station opened on Line 8 last week. The station is called China Art Museum.

Shanghai Metro opens new Line 8 China Art Museum station on Expo site

The Shanghai Metro company have announced that a new station China Art Museum will open tomorrow, September 28 2012. The station is named after the adjacent China Art Museum, which also opens for trial operation this National Holiday week. The museum is housed in what was the China Pavilion during the 2010 World Expo. The station will also be convenient for events at the nearby Mercedes-Benz Arena.

Here’s a snippet of the metro map, showing the location of China Art Museum on Line 8. The station (formely known by the Chinese name of Zhoujiadu in plans) is between South Xizang Road and Yaohua Road on Line 8.

Yeah the name Zhoujiadu carries so much history and memory, the ferry terminal is gone, now even the subway station is renamed.

Line 13 Phase I West (end of year)
Line 22 - Jinshan Rail (already opened)

2013:

Line 11 Phase II (mid year)
Line 11 Huaqiao section (2nd half)
Line 12 East (end of year)
Line 16 Partial (end of year)

There were some delay on line 11 and 16 which are supposed to open this year.

I thought a chunk of line 12 is supposed to open this year.

The Shanghai metro is bigger than that of any city inside or outside China.

I've always been of the mind that it would be inappropriate to compare Shanghai metro with just simply metro systems across the world. That is because Shanghai metro serves the functions of both metro AND suburban rail. Therefore, it would be more appropriate to look at both suburban and urban rail transit when comparing Shanghai metro. In that regard, Tokyo and NYC each easily have 5 times the length of track, coverage, and depth of service.

Which lines apart from line 22 and Maglev serve as suburban rail?

I think he means that, in the absence of proper suburban rail, the metro system takes its place/ performs that function.

Where other cities have suburban rail + metro working together, Shanghai basically only has metro doing both jobs... so to more properly compare those cities with Shanghai, suburban rail should be added to their stats.

Where other cities have metro + bus working together, Detroit basically only has bus doing both jobs... so to more properly compare those cities with Detroit, buses should be added to their stats.

In many situations it can be a valid comparison without including suburban rail. The examples you included (especially Tokyo) are suburban railways approaching the functions and standards of a metro, which is a totally different debate altogether. Many systems particularly in North America suburban rail is built and operated at such a low standard that adding the trackage would not accurately reflect the city's "rapid transit situation". Even in Europe the only systems I might consider are the RER/S-Bahn/S-Tog systems etc. which are well known to blur commuter rail and rapid transit.
