Yeah, but I try not to generalize and I personally only traveled the East Line multiple times a day... it was extra bad there because they were bringing HUGE bags onto the metro, especially at Sheung Shui to Lo Wu/Lok Ma Chau.

The contrast was extra remarkable, because at first I noticed how incredibly orderly people queued on the MTR (during my first trip to HK Island and Kowloon). Much better than any other places I have been to (Europe, America, China). So when someone says Hong Kong's metro is just as 'rude' as those in China, they apparently don't know what they are talking about.

Nanjing has relatively few migrants, and also the city is not known for low level mass manufacturing industry. Also it's geographically a much smaller city so the pressure of getting on a train is less. Once the network expansion is in place next year ridership should explode since more people are connected by metro, thus causing a cascading effect on all lines. Right now I would say at peak hours at Xinjiekou station the situation isn't any better than Shanghai Metro Line 2 at East Nanjing Rd. But a couple years down the road the picture will become nastier.

You've got to visit Moscow. We've got here loads of passengers and loads of migrants but still it is kind of order. Better than in Europe.

By the way, in the West people tend not to ask "are you getting off at the next station?" Considering this a sort of violation of their rights. But it is silly indeed. If you are to get off, better to ask and if your neighbor is not, so you exchange your places and you wil save time and nerves when getting off the train.

Line 3 is not doing well:

Nanjing Metro Line 3 Opening before 2014 Youth Olympics Unlikely

Followed by this:

Under Construction Line 3 Jiulonghu Station Collapsed. No Causalities reported

Too bad Nanjing is missing out on the orgy of Chinese metro openings/extensions in the last week of 2013.

I like it.

Behind it as I can see, there is a train for Shanghai line 13?

Oh my god it's horrible

The lights are so high up the face, and the paintjob is nasty too.



Looks a lot like this

Since there are platform doors you can't see the train so it's not important at all How the train looks like.

Well Line 3 does go above ground for short sections so... ya. Imagine seeing that outside your window.

It also hurts a bit that CSR's subway train design is still lacking in some cases. CNR is now pumping out these beautiful Japanese styled subway trains for Beijing's Line 6, 7, 8, 10 and 14. and the Harbin metro. Though I can't say the same for the new CRH train the CNR is making.

Japanese metro trains are definitely not the ones to copy in terms of design.

What I dislike about this Nanjing trains is that the windscreen is too narrow as for its height.

I don't understand at all why many of you find the paint job so nasty.

Wikipedia says the following map shows the Nanjing metro by the time of the 2014 Youth Olympic Games. Is it accurate?

That should be the 2015 map. Line 3 will open in 2014 but only after Youth Olympics. Line 4 and Line 12 will most likely open in 2015.
