    As far as the green/silver train, what kind of wheels does it have?
    1. The rubber wheels are more expensive to mantain, and all the lines in Mexico City Metro are rubber, exept for 1, which is line A.

    2. Steel wheel is chipper.

    3. The silver and orange is rubber wheel, which runs in all the Mexico City Metro Lines exept for Line A.

    4. The Blue and Orange only runs in Line A, due to that Mexico City only has 1 steel wheel line, all the others are rubber.

    Because steel wheel makes more noise.
    And rubber wheel is pretty much silent.

    Well that kind of makes sense especially at night time and whatnot. So the orange and silver train is the only steel one, correct?
