After many years planning, and one year of trial running, Shenyang got its subway system at last. Like Chengdu, Shenyang also has fully underground metro. May be some part of the future lines will have over ground/elevated.

Many people of today don’t know that Shenyang once had a tram network.

A horse tramway opened in 1907. The Japanese opened an electric tramway in Oct. 1925, and by 1937 there were 12 km of track and 21 trams. The system expanded over the years and fought with many threats of closure throughout the sixties, but ultimately failed to survive and finally closed in 1973.



This is a photo of now closed tram of Shenyang. Can anybody identify the place of the city? Please write.

I’ve some questions (arose after viewing some websites). Please answer one by one –

1) Will the current line (line 1) be extended from Shisanhaojie to Sihaojie?
2) Will there be a new line (line 2) from Songshanlu to Shijiguangchang?
3) I also heard there are plans for two east-west lines, two north-south lines, a loop line, and two branches with a total length of 182.5 km have been expanded to eleven lines. Is it true? If yes, please write details about the lines, and try to post a complete map in English with all future lines.

1) That section is already open! They wanted to open Sihaojie to Limingguangchang (Liming Square) in 2009 and then Sihaojie-Shisanhaojie in 2010. But instead they made trial runs on Shisanhaojie-Tiexiguangchang (Tiexi Square) for a year and opened the whole line in 2010. What it's sure is an extension on the other side of the line: Liming Square to Dongling Park, currently U/C.
2) Yes, it's that. Scheduled to open in 2012.
3) I know there are plans for 11 lines, but I haven't seen a map yet. I want to see a map for see where will pass the other 9 lines. All I can see is that Shenyang will have 5 lines by 2018.

Thanks for your answer, now please try to answer these questions one by one-

1) Left side, right side or both side, - which type of platforms are in most numbers in Shenyang subway network?
2) Elevated, ground level or underground, - which type of stations are in most numbers in Shenyang subway network?
3) Which is the deepest station of Shenyang metro?
4) Which is the busiest metro station on Shenyang metro?
5) Which stations have interchange facility with suburban rail network on Shenyang metro?
6) Where is/are the depot(s) of the subway network?

BTW, could you say the place of the former tram system seen above?

1) It seems to be left side, as seen from photos...
2) All underground.
3) Don't know.
4) Don't know.
5) There is no suburban network in Shenyang. However, Shenyang Railway Station speaks for itself.
6) At Shisanhaojie.

Line 2 of Shenyang Metro opened for free rides on 30 Dec 2011, with official opening set on 9 Jan 2012. There isn't much English-language information available yet. This comes amidst a recent flurry of activity in China metros and monorails, with significant openings and extensions in Beijing and Chongqing in just the past week.

Here is an article about Shenyang Metro Line 2 opening operation schedule:

This seems to be Aotizhongxin station


This is Shenyangbeizhan station, which the metro authorities have decided not to translate to Shenyang North Railway Station.

Beiling Park station - according to this blog, the red color reflects Beiling Park's special significance in the history and imperial style of the Qing dynasty.

Nice, they were smart to make the stations "island" stations (I think that's the term). If you get off at the wrong stop, you just run over to the other side to go back.

I love how they use a lot of station attendants in China.

Shenyang is cold. How cold is it in the underground metro stations during the winter? How about Beijing stations during the winter? Are the stations air-conditioned and heated?

It's underground system. It's always warm under the surface of the earth. I doubt if there is need to heat stations.

Shenyang tram moves ahead

10 January 2012

CHINA: Shenyang municipality signed an agreement with CNR Corp on December 1 for the development of a 40bn yuan tram network.

The 65 km five-line network will connect Taoxian Airport, Shenyang South high speed rail station, National Games Village and Olympic Sports Centre. Segregated surface alignments are planned, with grassed track along road median strips. CNR would supply an initial 20 low-floor trams.

Completion is scheduled for June 2013, in time for the Chinese National Games.
