Large metro wagons

I never looked at other subways. The only one I know in the world is Montreal’s metro. I saw this photo of the interior of a wagon of the metro in Taipei, then I though, it would be nice to have wagons as large as that in Montreal.

This is just me talking. Large in Montreal would mean rebuilding all the tracks to make them larger as well and I doubt that anybody is willing to do that.

The way it is now is fine. Tourists love it.

    Compared to the ones I have seen in Chicago and Europe, the wagons here tend to be on the more spacious side. Though that may be an impression due to the seat layout. The free space in front of the doors is a big plus. Paris and Chicago were on the small side, while I remember German wagons being more open for some reason. It would be interesting to find the statistics.

    In Chicago, they are rebuilding or extending the elevated stations along one of the lines in order to accommodate eight wagons instead of six. This has meant tearing down buildings for the room required. So they are going longer instead of wider.
