Light metro, monorail under construction
Mashad's 24 km, 22 station light
metro opened for limited revenue service in April 2011, and fully inaufurated in October 2012. Eleven stations and 9 km are underground. This line is the first of four lines totaling 77 km. It is run by the
Mashad Urban Railway Corp. And, since Mashad is considered a
holy city, the light rail line will by proxy be a
Skyscraper City thread with pics of the Mashhad light metro. Play spot the chinaman!

Hoping no one notices them, light rail cars for the Mashhad metro stow away on a freighter bound for Iran.
