I guess it makes sense with so many people moving to the city. Also...that metro looks really small compared to the ones in london and new york(shorter). Are they just really frequent, or do people not use the metro? (sorry for all these questions...I'm too curious)

Never mind, talking my hometown with a foreigner is a great experience. :D

Common metros are longer and bigger than this(30% wider and 100% longer), the one you see in the photo is a line connecting an area not that central and a remote area. The sad thing is our gov thought not so many people will use this line, but the expanding speed of the city is really fast, which makes this line very crowed in commuting time. And even more sad thing is I took it everyday! :D

That's a really interesting building style. Is that the most commonly seen in Shanghai?

yeah. To you they probably don't stand out, but to me I've never seen that style before. From my traveling, most large scale housing I've seen does not even attempt to add aesthetic design elements, but these, while admittedly dull, do attempt some decoration. Just wondering if that is a common site, or if most buildings are plain blocks.

Oh, actually they are quite common. :D

Housing actually is and has been the hottest industry in China, the developers are trying any possible way to promote and add values to the apartments. :D An average apartments now usually costs more than a house in many western country, no kidding.

Everything that's in focus in this shot has a certain... linearity to it. All the lines in their right place and time. +fav, and I would like to submit this to The-Railfan-Nation group.

Not to mention the fact that I don't often see deviations with trains (of any kind) from China all that often.
