Our friend Luke made his first visit to Chongqing, and as he has generously done before, he is sharing images.
As these images show, Chongqing is continuing to manufacture monorail beams at a record pace.
The beam yard is near the southern terminus of Chongqing Monorail, Yudong Station 1 on Line 3.
The new work includes a spur to Chongqing airport, as well as continuing the main line north from station 38.
A six-car train negotiates a switch at Station 38, Bijin.
Trains going to and from Station 39 at Jiangbei Airport
Tracks heading underground for the Jiangbei Airport, new tracks for the northern extension are above
Luke captured some amazing line-split locations, this one leads to a massive storage depot.
Another view of the depot spur and main line
Line 3's extension and airport spur line will add seven stations.
