[640],shadow=true,start=,stop=

With 12 subway lines and 1 light rail line, the ChengDu metro ranks 4th largest in the world after BeiJing, ShangHai and GuangZhou.

YT comment by Helghast73 : Yeah I can see this tour will just highlight what I was saying in the last Chengdu video Max, “plan for the future and then plan some more” 😂

It’s hard to believe that all this will celebrate its 12th birthday in September. Just stop and think for a moment, 12 years ago none of it was there and fast forward to now and you’ve 373 stations network, mind blowing.

The idea of giving each line an actual visual identity is great, it’s not just a line colour on a network map but station platforms and train carriages too.

Line 8 with it’s green and white colour scheme is super bright.
Line 5 with it’s older heritage look and darker tones used but still bright.
Line 18 with it’s nods to Zaha Hadid I’d say haha superb also looks like a mini Beijing Daxing with the clinical white look.
Line 6 with it’s coral looking sub aquatic look.
Line 9 with it’s lilac scifi.
