Cars disobeying turn restrictions and signals crashing into trams. This reminds me of the Houston Metrorail when it opened.

Another thing is bicycles. I've been to China and it turns out many bicycles don't come with brakes (or if they do, they are never used for whatever reason). Thankfully the bikes aren't likely to inflict the type of infrastructure damage to LRVs that we would see in a collision with a motor vehicle.

How far can the trams travel in one quick charge (duration?)?

Shouldn't there be a separate thread for the tram systems in each city? It would make sense to gather the info in one place Considering it's supposed to be the future or urban transport then it warrants its own thread.

Five more lines are planned

Line 4, 6, 7, 8, 9 will be added to Shenyang's tram network. The 9 lines are 139 km long in total.

Line 6 will open in mid 2014 and Line 4 will start construction in 2014.

Not many Chinese cities have tram systems. AFAIK if not counting the tourist tram only Dalian, Changchun, Shenyang, Shanghai, Tianjin, Anshan have built their tram lines. Dalian should have the longest system, Shenyang ranks 2nd.

As I posted in another thread many Chinese cities are building/planning their tram networks now.

One last question, how many of these tram systems have their own dedicated threads on this forum?

I certainly hope so they deserve their own threads.

Very impressed! Looks sleek, modern and inviting to use. Would love to see more Chinese cities use trams/light rail.

Absolutely impressive system. I hope these cars are well heated for the winter.

It seems like there was a world wide dislike of trams in the 60-70's and now cities are realizing how great trams(streetcars) are for the public.
