And with you for the first time in this thread, the very initial works on the constuction of the monorail extension of line 2. Yes, Line 2 will be extended further from Vila Prudente, but this will be actually an entirely new line, a transfer will be needed, and it will be an elevated monorail line. By Reid Dead.

Track gauges of the Sao Paulo subway and suburban lines??

Are the track gauges of the various Sao Paulo subway and suburban passenger rail lines the same? If not, would someone please list the different gauges and what line they pertain to.

Thank you

International gauge (1.435 m) on lines 5 and 4
1.6 meter gauge on all other lines (CPTM and Metro)
except that some 1.6m lines actually have double gauge (1 meter + 1.6 meter) but the 1 meter gauge is only used on one "operational extension" of one line, which is being abandoned, only the CPTM Toshiba train used the 1 meter gauge, I believed it was retired two weeks ago.

pci of the metric Toshiba, built inb 1958:




Check this Brazilian forum thread for CPTM gauges:

The narrow gauge will remain used by freight trains until the construction of new tracks only for the freight trains. Only then the existing tracks will be used just for the passenger trains.
