FangShan Line

Photoed by @摄影师一文琦

FangShan Line is a suburban line of Beijing Subway system . \

There are 21 sets of 6-car train running on the route . Numbered from FS001 to FS021 . These fully "Made in China" trains were made by Beijing Subway Rolling Stock Equipment Co. Ltd.


There are enclosures for reducing noise even there less developed area around the elevated route .


Like other former lines in Beijing Subway . The Fangshan Line powered by the third rail .




The destination of the train was shown on the head of the train .


On the section with enclosure , you can see next station , because the route is so straight . Also you can notice the mountain in the back ground .




In this pic , the elevated FangShan Line go under Beijing–Guangzhou–Shenzhen–Hong Kong High-Speed Railway


There are many residential developments on going around Beijing , so FangShan Line will be more crowded in the future (even now it's already very crowded).

Line 14 , elevated section

Photoed by @摄影师一文琦

Line14 is one of the subway lines operated by MTR


There two kinds of 6A trains in Line 14 .38 of them made by Changchun Railway Vehicles (CNR) , 25 made by CSR Sifang Co Ltd. . 63 sets in total .

They looks very similar , just a little difference of them . Like the two pics below , the left one is made by CNR . And the right one is made by CSR . Can you find the difference of them ?




The one which has a smaller headlight is made by CNR .


Conversely the bigger headlight one is made by CSR .




There is flyover for passengers to change the way they ride , also a good place for taking photos .


Line 14 is the first subway line in Beijing using A-type train . It helps a lot for releasing pressures in rush hour .


This is a nice pic for the curve ! And can you find more differences of them ?

Line 7 --JiaoHuaChang Sta.

Photoed by 摄影师--文琪
Jiao Hua Chang Sta of line 7 is located at the fommer Beijing Jiaohuachang (Coking Plant) complex .



The third rail-powered 8B trains are in operation on line 7 which is the second line that has 8B train (the first one is line 6). These rolling stock on line 7 were made by Beijing Subway Rolling Stock Equipment Co. Ltd. .It was the first time that this company design and produce rolling stock independently for the first time . They've done the good job .


The black squares on the platform are for queuing guidance . Who is going to get on the train should stand on the left or right square . And keep the middle square clear for passengers getting off from the train . In most metro systems in China , you will find the similar way for queue for trains .


The station hall of JiaoHuaChang , very modern , clean , bright , CCTV equipped . There is giant different in decoration style between the old line like line 1 or 2 and line 7 .


The depot of line 7 --- JiaoHuaCang Depot is underground. So can image how large of the scale of the construction program it was . The background of the pic is some factory building of Beijing Jiaohuachang (Coking Plant) complex , discarded . Maybe it will be redeveloped to be a Art Zone like 798




The departure platform .

The terminal platform . All the passengers must get off the train .

Inside the line 7 rolling stock , it's almost empty because it was not the rush hour and it just leaving the first station in the journey .

DKZ15 Rolling Stock of Beijing Subway Line 10

Photoed by @摄影师一文琦

Beijing Subway Line 10 have the largest number of trains among China Metro system —— 116 sets of DKZ15 !


There are 3 batches of DKZ15 . Can you notice the two with red "北京" on its head on the left and middle ? The W440 and W403 is the 1st batch train , with 2008 Olympic sign on the left side , W401 to W443 . "W" means "WanLiu Depot" , where trains placed after operation .

The "10 082" train is the 2nd batch . With white also larger "北京" on the head and no Olympic sign .




These are the 2nd batch of DKZ15 , 10 049 and 10 061 . 41 trains of 2nd batch , from "10 044" to "10 084"




Then the left one "10 098" in this pic is one of 3rd batch of DKZ15 . With smaller white "北京" , number from "10 085" to "10 116" . Much different from the right "W432" .




You can easily distinguish the 2nd (left one) and 3rd (10 103 on the right) batch trains by the size of the "北京" .


Maybe the time of the photo taken is not peak hours , so many trains are in depot .

Proposed Interchange between Lines 3 and 2 at Dongsishitiao. The old ghost platforms built for Line 3 under the existing Line 2 where designed in the 80s for trains and operation similar to Lines 1 and 2 (6 car type B rolling stock with 3rd rail, no PSDs, etc) In fact the whole interchange station was envisioned to be similar to Jianguomen. The original Line 3 Platforms will be re purposed to a intermediate interchange level between the two lines retaining the original station decor. With a new extremely wide and long Line 3 platform below.

Beijing Metro is quite going satisfactorily, and covers almost the entire Beijing. This is very good that all main streets are now served by subway system, and makes a dense grid.

Massive construction is going. A number of new lines and extensions are under construction. Those are –

1) Line 3 will connect the northeastern and southwestern Beijing in 2021.
2) Line 6 will be extended to western Beijing in 2018.
3) Line 7 will be extended to southeastern Beijing in 2020.
4) Line 8 will be extended to southern Beijing in 2019.
5) Line 9 will be extended to central Beijing in 2020.
6) Line 11 will serve the western Beijing around 2025.
7) Line 12 will connect the northeastern and southeastern Beijing in 2020.
8) Line 14’s southcentral section will be opened in 2019.
9) Line 16 will connect the northwestern and southwestern Beijing in 2017.
10) Line 17 will connect the northeastern and southeastern Beijing in 2019.
11) Line 18 will connect eastern and western Beijing and will run under Line 1 parallel in 2020.
12) Line 19 will connect the northcentral and southern Beijing in 2019.
13) Line 22 will serve the eastern Beijing in 2021.

Around 2025, Beijing Metro network will be more than 1000Km, long, and will be the largest subway system in the world.

ChangPing Line

Photoed by @摄影师一文琦

ChangPing Line is located in the northwest of Beijing, linking Beijing and ChangPing . Surrounding by residential area , it's one of the most crowded subway line in Beijing .
You can know how hard it is to squeeze
your body into a fully crowded train in this report made by CCTV in Chinese .


Anyway , the landscape of ChangPing Line is pretty good .




All elevated stations of ChangPing Line have the similar design , in Six prism
.




The 6B trains of ChangPing Line are powered by the third rail ,like other lines except line 6/14 .
By the way, all the new lines will equipped with catenary powered 8A trains ,except Yanfang Line .




The surrounding area of the station seems empty right now , but many development programs are on going . The ChangPing line will be more crowded in the future .

Beijing S1 Maglev Train

It's expected to be in service by the end of 2017 ( http://www.bbaqw.com/wz/24823.htm ).

http://www.bbaqw.com/wz/24823.htm




The driver/passenger cabin is made of fibre-reinforced plastic (FRP) and composite foam materials ( just like the Changsha ones, see http://www.tschina.com/news/4_310 ).

Can China's Futuristic 'Straddling Bus' Finally Become a Reality?

I can't post links yet, but I wonder what people think about China's raised bus that allows traffic to pass immediately below it. Looks like it is about to get live testing shortly.

I went on the changping line when Ai was there 1.5 years ago. The development at science park to get to the Aeon mall was very.... unfriendly to peds. Do you know if that has changed at all?
