The Tokyo Metro Marunouchi Line was built as Tokyo's second subway line, and is one of only two lines in the system that uses a 3rd rail for current collection and runs on standard gauge. Its design is similar to the Ginza Line, but with longer cars and several locations where it operates on the surface. Mark Kavanagh has shared his shots from some of these locations for this months selection.
