Urban Rail – Toyama and Mumbai


23 Dec 2009 saw the opening of a new circle line route in the city of Toyoma, Japan. The Centram route circles the city center starting from and ending at the city’s main railway station. Interestingly this is a one-way route, so no getting on the wrong tram.

02 Jan 2010 saw the delivery of the first set of monorail cars from Scomi, in Malaysia, to Mumbai. The first set of cars will help ensure the monorail works when it is scheduled to open in mid-2011. Looks like the first trial run will take place end of Jan, with the first phase opening around November 2010. I really hope this works out to be a success and they get to expand the system.
