My pilot friend George sent me a photo and asked me where it is. It is the map of Shanghai Metro Line #4 Puhuitang Base. I finally located the place on Google Earth, and I believe it is exactly what is on the map.

This facility is the parking place for the trains. By design, it has the capacity to hold 67 trains (402 carts) – pretty big, isn’t it?

It is very near where I lived before.

New Lines

By the end of this month, four new Metro Lines will open to public by the end of this month. They are

  • Metro Line #8
  • Metro Line #9
  • Metro Line #1 North Extension Phase II
  • Metro Line #4

39 new Metro Stations will be put into operation at the same time. This is really amazing.
