They system is terribly archaic and after any big storm the lowest stations are usually closed to pump out water. Thunderstorms usually cause signal delays lol. They have though upgraded a number of cars though to more modern ones.
Yes you're right more recently they have made them all plastic, I forget because I always just re-load my card. For a while even the larger amounts from the machines were paper and you had to request a special plastic card, or at least I remember requesting that.

The new trains are nicer for sure, the advertising is getting a bit much, I can't find the map when the wall is covered in adds... haha
