Heyho and welcome to the thirtyninth update of my CJ Dragon Islands.

Today we will take a ride on SRT line A from Shiguan ji? to Shì zài lóng yàn. SRT line A serves only eight stations, six at Shì Shuixì and two at Shì zài lóng yàn. The distance between the sixth and seventh station is very long.

That's one of the two small british styled terminal stations, it's architecture is the same as the one of it's "twin" at Shì zài lóng yàn. Shiguan ji? can be translated as "Embassy road" The British embassy is the only thing left from colonial times, it's still the same building as it was back then and the road is called after it.

Well... here again... (I'm running out of motives with this station.....) Some express trains are running nonstop from here to the end of line A during rush hour. Line A runs paralelle to line B now....

whoops?! This one is new. Line B does not stop here... Why? Because it uses the tracks on the other side of the depot in the middle....

Then the trains rides through the city, everytime on ground level, Railroad crossings are rare. (Not needed, no dense road traffic, no dense rail traffic)

The small track leaving below is a local route served by a small JR150 diesel railcar.
