Linimo is probably the WORST new train line in Japan.

Linimo was a wonderful experience! i heard that Taipei might be considering linimo for its circular line but i'm not sure. Honolulu is also looking at it

Thanks to everyone.

For any of you who might be wondering, Yes, there is a Universal Studios Theme Park in Japan, in Osaka to be exact.

These trains are beautiful.
The jungle of concrete and steel is fascinating, but makes it difficult to take really good pictures of these trains.


London is pretty impressive when it comes to trains, there even gonna be new Japanese trains, for the CTRL regional services.

The service on it is horrible compared to your average Japanese train line.

The thing appears rushed, and I heard from my friend who went to the expo several times that it malfunctioned regularly while in operation.

The staff who operate the line are horribly dressed and obviously inexperienced.

And the terminal station to get to the line from the Nagoya subway takes you down 5 or 6 floors of stairs just to pay for your ticket, which is a ripoff as it is.

Not to mention crowd control on the line coming out of the expo is absolutely horrible.

When you ride trains enough in Japan, you get spoiled. And by Japanese standards (which no other place on earth comes close to), Linimo is a joke, despite the new technology. However, I do understand that it's only the first line and thus a prototype to some extent. They'll work out the kinks and make it perfect like the Japanese always do.
