Very beautiful train line. It is almost a sightseeing train line. In Hong Kong, only Tung Chung line comes close with some segments above ground so people can appreciate the sun, sea and trees.

Rail Line 6 opens Lijia-Yuelai section

CHONGQING (CQNEWS) -- The Lijia-Yuelai section, phase I of Rail Line 6 branch, was put into traffic on May 15, 2013; and the departure-ceremony was held at CQEXPO Station on the same day. By Line 6, it takes only 13 min and 48 min to Yuelai respectively from Lijia and Wulidian.

The phase I of Rail Line 6 branch starts from Lijia Station and ends at Yuelai Station, with the whole length of 12.1 km. It boasts 5 underground stations, which are Pingchang, Huangmaoping, Gaoyikou, CQEXOP, and Yuelai.

Since the Lijia-Yuelai section was opened, Chongqing has formed the traffic mileage as long as 143 km of rail transit, ranking the 1st in west China, and 5th in China. (Translated by Chen Siyan, Fathom Language Limited)

West Rail and Shanghai's line 3/4 has some nice segments.

My experiences with the East and West rail lines have to disagree with that statement.

You can see Niujiaotuo station in the background, I think the line actually has tons of stops for its length.

Isn't that because Changchun Railway Vehicles is manufacturing rolling stock for both of them using the Hitachi monorail platform

Do you know what the daily ridership is for just the monorail since they opened all the new extensions/lines? I know Tokyo's was always the busiest but I would think you would have surpassed it. Thanks.

The ridership of the entire Chongqing Metro is about 1 million. So I doubt the monorail portion has higher ridership than the Tokyo monorail which is hovering at 800,000.
