@Bobbi: Long story.... I try to keep it short:
Dragon Islands is a state that has 3 major population groups: about 44% chineese, 42% japaneese, 12% korean and 2% from other cultures. Chineese is because of the political history (next to english) the secound "official" language that's why all the names of stations, plazas etc. are written in ther chineese version. But the japaneese continue speaking their language as well, so do the koreans. Japaneese is shortly before becomming the third official language of the country, it already replaced french or latin as the third language to learn in schools (Next to english and chineese....) and state employees who do not already speak Japaneese have to learn it.

Heyho and welcome to the twentysecound update of my MD Dragon Islands, today I’m going to show you some motives from along the LCRT line 4.
Some of you might remember the station Ch?zhàn m?tóu that’s located in the southern downtown. Here the trains of line 4 start their rides down to the airport in the far west of the city.
This time we won’t follow the tracks to the south like we did in update 13, because line 4 turns right into the city. Unfourtionally we can only see some automata of line 5 (the one on the bridge) and line 3.
The second station of the line 4 is called Yín ji? and shared wih the lines 5 and 6. The station Yín ji? is named after the road that passes beneath it. The station is used a lot around 8:30 and between 17:00 and 18:00, when the employees who work in the offices around it have finished their work or will start it soon.
A train of the line 4 heads to the east on the old rail viaduct between the highrises.....
The next station on the way to the airport is Fènghuáng ji? (Phoenix road, named after this amazeing birds....) It’s still shared with the lines 5 and 6.
This place is located directly after the station Fènghuáng ji? (sorry, I was a bit too early for one of the automatas ....)
A train crosses a bridge in the middle of highrises...
Another already known station: Sìmiào (It’s the last already intreduced station for this update, I promise ) Line 6 has already left to the north (direction Dà Nàng) and line 4 has to share the plattforms with the lines 1 and 5.
This tim we will turn right here....
This is the station T?yùch?ng “Stadium” (The stadium is still one block away but it’s the nearest rail station to it and so it’s called stadium)
In earlier times of the city development it was planned to make this a mayor station, line 1 ended here for a long time, so did Line 5, the planned line 7 down to Chéngshì bànd?o has never been realised. So it’s just a stop with four platforms and much too much capacity.
....Line 4 uses this small single track section for changeing to the tracks that lead to the airport, the ones at th top left lead to te central depot of LCRT.
Here we’ve got the last intercarge station on our way to the airport, it’s located next to and named after Shu?x? ch?dào. Transfer to the line U3 is provided as well as to some minor important bus lines. It’s also located only 300 meters away of the clubhouse of the Lòng Chèng Golfclub (U18, I think)....
The front side of this station can be seen here.
You might have already noticed this piece of thrack when I’ve intedruced you to the golf course.....
Some closer view...
This is the station X?f?ng lóng chéng, line 5 ends here leaving line 4 the only line to use the tracks. The single platform to the top and the platform 2 are used by 4 line trains only, the trains of the 5 line use platform 3.
A train in a curve that heads to Ch?zhàn m?tóu.....
This is Wú lù, a small stop named after the road next to it.
Just some motives....
Theese are already the last meters of Line 4...
And here we are, at J?ch?ng.
And of course I provide a linemap again....

I hope you have enjoied this update,
