How about the extension of Line 11 from Anting to Suzhou?

Man, Line 8 trains were already very narrow with the original Alstom plug-doors. Doesn't this sliding door configuration eat up into valuable space?

Line 8 is very poorly planned. Nuff said. The problem is that with Subways you must get it right the first time.

When will the extension of Line 11 be opened? Shanghai Daily last year wrote something about July 2013. I was hoping for a quick opening to relieve other lines.

Line 8.
They must have changed the paintings of the trains recently.

No, they didn't do that. Line 8 has got two types of rolling stock, the first is older, almost pure Alstom Metropolis C-size, they actually are on the present photos. The newer are the same model but made in China and they feature some facelift. The interior is a bit different, too.

Right the same thing is for line 6.

I'm back to the best city in the world and that's what I've noticed today,

On some of line 3/4 stations platforms now feature an LED-line showing it is prohibited to approach the edge of the platform. The same feature exists in Moscow metro since 2006-2007 bit we've got it white while in Shanghai it is multi-colored.

The same thing: fences at Lujiazui stations were dismantled. Why?

If they are the same in terms of their look, both inside and outside, that doesn't matter to me. I counted only those really different.

They are not the same in their look.

Oh thanks. And how many both units are there in total?

By the way, on both pictures there are 3 cars per tran. I may be mistaken but seems like I've seen a 5-car EMU somewhere. Maybe in an Ad in subway.

To be honest I have no idea. I had the hardest time re-finding the images of the Chinese-built version of that maglev... it's really hard to find information on the maglev. Perhaps it has something to do with the aura of losing face, now that it basically turned out to be a 'bridge to nowhere'... or perhaps it's just because it's such a short line that it doesn't draw enough 'rail fans' to keep track of such statistics

Don't see anything funny out here.

I still guess why they limited the top speed of Maglev trains last year. It still runs at a top speed of 431 km/h during rush hours but the restof the time is only 301.

Last year? As far as I know the top speed has been limited to 301 during certain hours for a lot longer than that.

The interior of the train is looking very worse for wear as well!

Today I used one of the old Bombardier Movia that used torun on line 1. How many of them are still in service?

This is the Electric Flying Car made by CAC and CNR Changchun (each made one end car and one middle car). It's reported that it's 30% cheaper than the German original, 70% of components are domestically sourced, with "better performance than the original." Unlike the original this one has LCD screens in the passenger compartment, and it's completely driverless, the driver's station only has a computer that can be used to monitor the operation.
