A google search reveals that the only mentions of subcity center commuter line are on this thread.

Also, here is Pingleyuan Station (future infill station on Line 14):

Then search 副中心线. There is no English name or number for the line.

OK, thanks. The newly created Wikipedia page calls this by the unofficial title "Sub-administrative Center Line"

Is the TVM displaying unopened infill stations as if they are plausible destinations?
  • Line 6 - Tongyunmen
  • Line 7 - Fatou, Shuangjing
  • Line 14 - Taoranqiao, Pingleyuan, Gaojiayuan

Also, is Yizhuang Railway Station on the Yizhuang Line displayed on the TVM? Wasn't aware of that one opening.

The Huairou-Miyun line is consistent with line S5 of Beijing Suburban Railway (which until now only had the Yanqing line, or line S2, in operation). The Fuzhongxin line (as there is no official English translation I just use the original name in pinyin) is also being called line S1, so there will be two lines S1! However the other line S1, the Mentougou maglev, is also known as line 26, and I go with that number, much like I refer to the Yizhuang, Fangshan (including the Yanshan-Fangshan line) and Changping lines as lines 24, 25 and 27 respectively (I consider Bawangfen-Tongzhou and Daxing lines to be part of lines 1 and 4 respectively).

Beijing is opening up to three new lines: A driverless line, a maglev line, and a tram line. The three lines:

Yanshan-Fangshan (Yanfang line), Yancun Dong to Yanshan, 13.4 km, 9 stations. Also known as line 25 West, it is the first driverless line in Beijing. In the future it will include a branch to Zhoukoudian. The Fangshan line is extended one station and 2.3 km from Suzhuang to Yancun Dong, to 25.4 km and 12 stations.
Line S1, Jin'anqiao to Shichang, 8.3 km, 7 stations. Also know as the Mentougou maglev and line 26, it should not be confused with the Fuzhongxin commuter rail line (also designated line S1). For now isolated from the rest of the network, the final 1.6 km to Pingguoyuan will open sometime in 2018. This is the thrid maglev line to open in China after the Shanghai and Changsha lines.
Xijiao (or Western suburban) line, Bagou to Xiangshan, 8.6 km, 6 stops. The long awaited Western suburban line, previously planned as a full metro line, has been built as a tram line (as it has at-grade crossings), and thus it doesn't count to the metro total. This marks the return of tram service to Beijing after around 60 years (I'm not counting that thing in Qianmen).

In addition, two infill stations are added: Pingleyuan on line 14 East between Beigongda Ximen and Jiulongshan, and Nongda Nanlu on line 16 between Malianwa and Xiyuan.

This brings Beijing metro subway (heck, this is the only metro system in China not called "metro" in English) to 598 km. This would be the world's longest... if it weren't for Shanghai opening 66 km today too (putting that at 654 km), so it remains behind. It is, however, almost 200 km longer than the 3rd longest network (London).

Such an amazing fact. Think of all the steel and concrete it takes to build. The growth and urbanization in China is truly mindblowing!
