New trains also for line 3 - the busiest in the system!

First one just arrived! As you can see, this late March has been a blessing for the Sao Paulo metro system.

Newly remodelled line 9 station - VILA LOBOS JAGUARÉ. It was originally built around 1980 but all stations from line 9 are undergoing similar renovations for visual improvements, more services, toilets and better accessibility (all stations in Sao Paulo will have wheel-chair accessibility by 2014)

PS: for those who just opened this page 7 today, the great late March update starts on page 6, please visit, there are great pics and vids there as well!


And so this post does not stay empty, pic of the new line 4 > line 2 integration tunnel seen from Paulista station on line 4. There was some discussion as to why these "turnstyles" with no barrier were there, apparently they contain some sensor to count the amount of people transfering between lines

Another vid of the new line 3 train (there are so many novelties this month that forumers actually haven't paid much attention to the new line 3 CAF, there are no pics yet, just videos!)

And to vary, this thread's first non-railfan-made video of a station, line 9 station Interlagos, opened in 2008, made by some noisy kids. Have fun.

This is also a very melancholic video of a train leaving line 9 station Grajaú (terminus) by forumer Tiago Costa.

And a curious one for heavy railfans, a CPTM Alco RS-3 diesel locomotive used to tow trains when there is a power outage, here going through line 8 station Água Branca (West SP). By youtube user alexpisciottano (I don't know if he is a forumer)

A nice scene at Presidente Altino transfer station (lines 9 and 8), a Siemens line 9 train leaving (with its unique, saxophone-like noise) and then an old Cobrasma line 8 train from the 70's arriving, still in old livery.

The Siemens is a 4-car composition, the exact opposite of the gigantic 12-car Cobrasma compositions which are the only ones serving line 8, once the best line in the system.

Interesting video of line 9 Autodromo station near the Formula 1 race tracks, it shows this station's peculiar position, built right on a longitudinal elevation along the avenue, making it sort of elevated AND at grade at the same time, take a look:



This other vid I just found shows the station's unusual position much better

Pic by Eduardo GJF of the transfer tunnel between line 2 and 4, showing the high level of inclination users will have to face, but fortunately with a vertical people mover. It's funny because this inclined access was built in 1990 along with the old Consolação station, I wonder if they knew where the new line 4 station would be at in terms of elevation/depth.
