Chengdu metro Line 4 train unveiled
Wednesday, August 27, 2014



THE FIRST of 27 six-car trains for Chengdu metro Line 4 was presented to Mr Yu Ningyue, chairman of Chengdu Metro Corporation at the CNR Changchun plant on August 21

The stainless steel-bodied Type B trains are equipped with remote diagnostics system which allows depot staff to wirelessly download data on the performance of components.

Trial operations are due to start on the initial 22.4km 16-station phase of the east-west line next June and full commercial services are due to start by the end of 2015.

Chengdu opened its first metro line in 2010 and the municipal government plans to develop a 384km 10-line network by 2020

Damn that's an ugly train. First Nanjing Metro Line 3 then Dongguan Metro Line R2 now this? They really ought to stop trying to put a face on the train. Its a piece of machinery not a ******* toy.

The eastern extension to Longquanyi opened today.

Was kind of out of the blue, I only realized when I took the train and they said "本次列车终点站龙泉驿" or "This train's terminal station is Longquanyi." It was supposed to open in December (officialy "年底" which is just year end, I was expecting Dec 31 or something)

Official press release is here:

With the line 2 eastern extension open for (trial?) operation, Chengdu now has 60km of trackage. The subway line 2 eastern extension runs in a NW to SE direction starting from the Chengdu Institute for Public Administration station and heading to Longquanyi staton. It is 11.1km in length and features 6 stations.
Some stats;
-11.1km in length; Line 2 is now 42.208km long and has 32 stations
-It takes 66 minutes to travel the entire length
-3 new stations are above ground; Damianpu [大面铺], Lianshanpo [连山坡] and Jiepai [界牌]
-3 new stations are below ground; Shufang [书房], Longping Road [龙平路] and Longquanyi [龙泉驿]

Now that line 2 is finished all the way from Pi county to Longquan, unless I'm mistaken lines 3, 4, 7 and 10 are U/C now. And I've seen there are at least 22 lines planned, I know that lines 11 and 13 through 17 will all intersect line 7 (With line 17 also crossing line 4 in Wenjiang), line 12 will cross line 10, and a line 22 intersects line 4 also in Wenjiang, as well as line 18 to the proposed second airport. I don't know nothing about lines 19, 20 or 21. I'd like to see a map of all this.

Finally I see a map that shows where line 18 will go. I didn't knew about the extension of line 6 far into Pi county. However I'm still awaiting to see a map with every damn planned line, I discovered that a line 23 and a line 24 will intersect the southern extension of line 1.
