Wasnt it the tomb sweeping day in China yesterday? I am guessing a lot of people are now preferring to travel to cemeteries via metro to avoid traffic jams on the highway.

AC17-b rolling stock on line 2

Photoed by @赵特特爱轨交

Griphook in AC-17b rolling stock . It has spaces for ads . The ad in the pic is an official propaganda for Shanghai Metro .


AC-17b is 4-car trian , made by Alstom and Nanjing Puzhen Rolling Stock Works in 2009 . 16 sets in total .
There are AC-17a ,which is 8-car train , also run on line 2 but in "Guanglan Rd. -- East Xujing"
A set of 8-car AC-17a train was tore apart into 4-car trian to serve the "Guanglan Rd.--Pudong International Airport" sectoin . So the total amount of AC-17b is 17 sets .


The "Guanglan Rd--Pudong International Airport" section , also called "The eastern Section" , has a frequency form 8min30s to 6min30s . So the two AC-17b came across each other will be rare to be seen .

8-car train service extension of line 2

Pic from @上海轨道交通俱乐部 (Shanghai Rail Transit Club)

To release the rush hour pressure of "Guanglan Rd.(广兰路) --- PuDong International Airport(浦东国际机场)" section . The 8-car train service will be extended to Tangzhen(唐镇) .
Trial run of this plan unertaken in Mar 19th and 20 th . Apr 6th and 7th , 13rd and 14th , "East Xujing -- Tangzhen“ service is 8 min per train .
The program will be finished in 2016 (maybe)

BUT this is the first step that the 8-car train service run through line 2 from East XuJing to PVG
The whole service extension program will be finished about 2020 .

Upper strip map : Rush hour schedule of line 2 . 4 services operated (as you can see) .
They are "Songhong Rd.(淞虹路) -- Guanglan Rd(广兰路)" ,
"East Xujing(徐泾东) -- Guanglan Rd.(广兰路)" ,
"PVG(浦东国际机场) -- Guanglan Rd(广兰路)" ,
"East Xujing(徐泾东) -- Tangzhen(唐镇)"

Lower one : Off peak hours schedule of line 2 . 3 services operated .

Guys, are there any developments of Shanghai trains? I'd like to try making some models out of papers. And, I'd be grateful if you could provide me with the exact dimensions of each car of each type.

Due to my policy of calling stations by its local name, I know that station as Dishini. I wasn't expecting it to open now, given that Disneyland won't open until June 16. I like how from there one can go directly to Jiading Bei over 60 km away but, contrary to what one would expect, going to Huaqiao (already in Jiangsu province) requires a transfer within line 11, as Huaqiao-bound trains only go as far as Sanlin.

They open the station earlier than the opening of Disneyland probably for the employees' commute.

I think the park opens tomorrow for trial operations so it won't be absolute chaos on the official opening day...

The park is in trial operation from May 7 until the grand opening on June 16. Disneytown, the "downtown area" outside the park, also opens now.

According to what I read lately, line 18 started construction in mid-May. The section from Changbei Lu to Changjiang Nanlu was put on hold while plans were being revised, but in the end it was untouched and will start at a later date. The rest, from Changjiang Nanlu to Hangtou, is the part now U/C and will bring yet another line to Longyang Lu.

Shanghai Metro Line 6

Photoed by @赵梓淇OrangeJuice

Shanghai metro line 6 is a light rail line (for it is using 4C-train) located in Pudong .
Surrouding by the resident area , with only 4-car train operating , it is extremely crowded in morning rush hour . But in the off-peak hours , it is a good line to enjoy !


The AC14 train is made by Changchun Railway Vehicles . 29 sets in total .Made in 2009~2010 . Purchased for growing number of passengers and releasing pressure of the rush hour.
There are mobile fences on the platfrom prevent form falling into the track .




These "Y" shape hand rail is a special point of AC14 .Decorated with pink color , the internal looks beautiful .


The number of the train and the logo of ShangHai Metro are on it's head . The face of the train looks like loach


Elevated track is close to the residential building . So the people who live there may confused with the noise from trains .
Anyway he curve of the track is beautiful .


"No smoking" and other signs are on the doors .


The blue "停" ("stop" in Chinese)sign helps the driver to stop the train at a right position .
