Varies, private railway lines and subways tend to be 2.8m wide and 20m long, similar to a B car. Only JR cars are larger at 3m wide and 20m long.

On board diagrams indicate that only 5 stations will open this month. Caojiawan, Xiangjiagang and Tiansheng stations will not be served in the beginning.

Is the Lijia-Yuelai section now operated as a shuttle, or do those trains go through to Hongdtudi/Wulidian also?

The last picture has the most beefy CCTV camera I have ever seen. Big brother is truly watching on a big camera.

CCTV can mean multiple things in China - what you watch and what watches you.

Curious, what was the logic behind using standard Metro and Monorail. Monorail makes sense due to the hilly terrain so why have they also continued to build standard Metro as well?

Wow ...
This bridge looks huge. This is almost out of scale for a metro system. Very impressive.

The stations of line 6 look very flashy. They feel retro and futuristic at the same time.

Chongqing metro sort of give up on monorails. They have insufficient capacity, speed and incompatibility with tunnels. These attributes are more needed in the newer lines. Lines 2 and 3 where good choices to use monorails. However, Line 1 runs underground in and through ridges of mountains requiring extensive and deep base tunneling. Regular metro is better for the line. Line 6 is a inter valley line that punches through mountains to far flung suburbs. It too requires deep base tunneling and also it is an extremely long line (will be the longest subway line in the world.) at 86km long. There is a need for faster trains (up to 100km/h) due to its length. Newer lines such as 4 and 5 that just started construction will need a higher capacity than monorail so they use 6 car A size trains. The king of subway capacity in China.

This equation means that you actually watch yourself.

Monorails have subway capacity...........it has nothing to do with the technology and everything to do with the size of the station platforms. The Sao Paulo Monorail is being built to an astounding 49,000 pphpd.
