Bashes me over line 1 (a.k.a. Guangzhou-Foshan line), then creates a thread for Foshan. Great. Another thread about this city got merged with Guangzhou's a while ago. And line 2 isn't opening until next year...

We do not have separate threads for Incheon (Seoul's Foshan) or Yokohama (Tokyo's Foshan) but Foshan metro is expected to grow so much that we may as well have a separate thread.

Nah keep the two metros on one thread, what is really going to happen is this thread will just die off after a couple of posts. Guangzhou doesn't get that much posts, so posting the going ons of the Foshan Metro in Guangzhou is no big deal.
