Does anyone have photos of progress on the Tehran monorail line?

The website for International Kish Control Mechanic Co. features a photo of columns being erected in Tehran.


They also show construction progress for a monorail line in Mashad with a train photo-shopped into the photo.


The also describe a monorail project in Qom.

114 km as of September 2010 (Before the Western expansion of line 4).

New trains will join the fleet in Winter 2011.
- 6 double decker trains (30 wagons) will be added to the suburban line 5 by the end of the Iranian year (March 2011).
- 2 inner city trains will join the fleet each month after March 2011.
- 1 double decker train and 6 wagons will join the suburban line each month after March 2011.
- By March 2012, the daily ridership should increase to 3 million passengers.

^ You're welcome.

The Enghelab-Azadi expansion of line 4 will be ready by 1 February 2011. 5 stations will be inaugurated, this will add 6km to the total length of Tehran metro. Further expansion of line 4 between Azadi and Ekbatan, Gheytarieh to Tajrish (line1), Haram Motahar to Kahrizak (line 10) will be done by June 2011.

Great news - glad you will soon find new metro stations in Tehran.
I have a question, however - after the station Gheytarieh how many stations will have to Tajrish - 1 or 2, because the information on the various schemes is different?

It may depend on Tehran BRT, if it extends from Parkway to Tajrish Sq. as planned it's plausible that there won't be any station between Gheytarieh and Tajrish.

Until one year to the official website of Tehran Metro was published this map:

On it there are 7 stations under construction and falls so that when Gheytariyeh will have 2 more stations - will probably located on Ghods Sq.and Tajrish Sq.
Shapoor, you do nice pictures of construction sites of the stations, but can you do and pictures of the platforms of stations, especially those in Line 4?

X1 is Tajrish station which has 49.1% progress according to this link. Y1 will be Tarjrish Square station which is currently in design process.

I can't. I don't travel anywhere on line 4.

Most of the seats seem to be yellow there, maybe to colour code the line yellow.
It looks like all seats of this stop are yellow http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showpo...&postcount=341

Yes, as I said all the seats on line 4 stations are yellow anyway because the whole line has yellow colour codeing but the trains will still have the same women only carriages at each end and will be labeled as such.

The old metro trainsets are probably fully used at peak times and used for maintenance relief. They are not that old as far as metro trains go. I dont think they are languishing somewhere its just that there are alot less of them compared to the newer type.

The diesel locomotive was probably bought for use on maintenance trains or as a rescue locomotive in case the overhead power fails. Perhaps it was hauling a passenger train because an electric locomotive had broken down and there weren't any spares available.
