Further to my last post about the Vancouver Skytrain, I have found three videos which show – sped up – the whole system (except for a bit of the Canada Line).
A few things about the videos really stand out to me:
- The extremely high frequency of trains you see travelling in the opposite direction
- The extensive amount of high-rise residential development which has occurred around many of the stations (especially on the Expo Line, which is the oldest)
- The fact that most of the Canada Line is in a tunnel, and the difference in tunnel shape between the cut & cover (square tunnel) and bored (round tunnel) sections
The videos are a great way to get a good understanding of the system, and also to see a fairly extensive part of Vancouver.
