People, time to get back on topic.

People tends to call a train running on the elevated railroad "light rail", but actually there is no difference between M3 and M1 in terms of transportation capacity, which is well regarded as the guideline of classifying light rail and heavy rail(Metro).

So far 4 lines are available. They are R1, R1 ext, R2, M3. In fact, the public transportation system mostly based on the bus system. You could check this site, and count how many bus lines Shanghai has.

http://www.eastmanagers.com/shanghai/bus.asp

Something close to 500+ bus lines.

Thanks for the definition. Wonder what to call it now in Chinese, with residents only used to "轻轨" and "地铁".

Cool, nice shots. I love this one:
[img]http://************/fdaiz6.jpg[/img]
The most advanced train on earth and they've got extension sockets and a fan in the driver's cab!
Plus the operation of it looks so simple, there's hardly anything in there, just 2 screens and what looks like a start and stop button!! lol In fact I'm surprised it even has a drivers cab, would have thought it would have been automated.
Very, very cool train!

Awesome pics! The Transrapid is probably the coolest train ever.

I especially like the photo that shows all those smashed bugs!

Actually in May 2005 the Transrapid got the approval to opperate automatically as the first high speed train in Europe. But things might be different in China...

In fact, the transrapid , in China as well as on the Testtrack IS running fully automated...

those to chicks in there are only for giving the passangers the feeling, that there is someone on board, who controls the whole thing....

But its definately running automated, I read it several times on different sources, and they also tell that on the transrapid homepage.

Edit:

Btw, any news about the extension of the track to hanghou and lingang
?
