CPTM | Oldie oddity.

An oldie, a Diesel Autorail called Litorina, at Palmeiras-Barra Funda station.

Can't say wether this is a test train, or it's the Expresso Turístico.

São Paulo plans metro privatisation
Friday, August 05, 2016



THE governor of the Brazilian state of São Paulo, Mr Geraldo Alckmin, says he wants to privatise six of the nine existing or planned metro and monorail lines serving the city of São Paulo, which represents about 60% of the network

The state is considering privatisation through operating concessions or public private partnerships (PPPs) because it is struggling to maintain the existing network and fund expansion of the system. Last year the state government failed to pay Reais 66m ($US 20.9m) of the Reais 330m it owed to Metro São Paulo for discounted concessionary travel

CPTM | Line 11-Coral.

New Via Expresso Olímpico between Luz and Guaianazes, not calling at any station between Luz and Corinthians-Itaquera stations.
These are fast services, but line 11 is in need of an upgrade (ballast+rail+sleepers), so it's not as fast a service as it could be.

At the moment they're being served by new class 8500 EMU's (there's just two of them operating by now).

CPTM | Line 9 extension (Grajaú-Varginha).

The Sâo Paulo maps of urbanrail.net are still not showing the extension of line 9-Emerald as under construction (or even as planned), when its construction is advancing bit by bit, slowly but surely, as I posted some days ago in this thread.

It will run from Grajaú station further south to Varginha, with an intermediate station at Mendes-Vila Natal, along the old abandoned platform of the FEPASA railway line from Osasco to Evangelista de Souza.

ps: the same urbanrail.net maps also show Água Branca station as common for CPTM lines 7-Ruby and 8-Diamond and in service for both lines, when line 8 doesn't call there, never has, and it's not 100% clear it will once metro line 6-Orange will open, there's a likeliness it won't until a later phase.
Only CPTM line 7 calls there by now, and metro line 6 will certainly do too. But CPTM line 8 doesn't. Not yet.

And commuter rail map doesn't show Botujuru tunnel on Line 7 between Francisco Morato and Botujuru stations and the series of tunnels on Line 11 bewteen Corinthians-Itaquera and Guaianases station

METRO | Line 4-Yellow (extension Butantâ-Vila Sônia, plus Óscar Freire and Higienópolis-Mackenzie stations).

Works on the missing parts of line 4-Yellow have finally restarted on all fronts.

Here are two videos (in Portuguese) showing images mainly of Higienópolis-Mackenzie station, and a few schemes on the line 4 restart plan.

-Higienópolis-Mackenzie station should be ready by August 2017 (not including works for line 6, which have already started too, but just the earlier stage).

-Óscar Freire station should be ready by the end of 2017.

-extension from Butantâ to Sâo Paulo-Morumbi to open by early 2018.

-extension from Sâo Paulo-Morumbi to Vila Sônia to open by 2019.

Some time later (probably years later), line 4 would be extended from Vila Sônia to Largo do Taboâo, with an intermediate station at Chácara do Jockey (no date at all, at the moment).

METRO | Line 6-Orange (Brasilândia-Sâo Joaquim), under construction.

An aerial image of the works at the Tietê shaft. It is located between future Santa Marina and Freguesia do Ó stations.
This is the point from which the two TBM's will start tunnelling.
One, more suited for rocky soils, will head north towards Brasilândia and the Morro Grande depot.
The other, more suited for sandy soils, will head southeast towards the centre of Sâo Paulo, reaching Sâo Joaquim station.

All other stations are just about to start works too.

CPTM | New rolling stock.

Two new class 8500 EMU's, during some tests at Pirituba station on line 7-Ruby.
There are already two in service, none of which appear on the picture.
Looks like a few more class 8500 have arrived at Presidente Altino depot from the CAF Factory at Hortolândia.

Note how at least one of the two 8500 is a brand new one, since, unlike the other and the two ones on the pic above, still doesn't have the number or the CPTM logo.

METRO | Line 5-Lilac (extension Adolfo Pinheiro-Chácara Klabin).

Images of the works at Santa Cruz station.
This is one of the least advanced stations of the extension.

On the upper images we can see the announcements of the closure of two streets, related to the construction of the metro station.

Btw, it looks like Santa Cruz station has suffered a few modifications on its project, as it seems now that line 5-Lilac will be privatized, and also because they expect A LOT of people using this station (which will be a crucial interchange with line 1-Blue).

METRO | Line 5-Lilac (new rolling stock and CBTC tests).

A video (in Portuguese) about the CBTC tests on line 5-Lilac.

The video has a funny side, as RMeier contradicts the views of a "promotor" (what is that in English? A lawyer? A TV show personality?), in which said "promotor" denounced that new class P trains had a different rail gauge than current class F trains, which is obviously false as can be.

I guess this must be the entrance to Brooklin station.
