Do you have - per chance - a larger map?

Hey, I just copied the picture from Nanjing Metro's official website, and they don't seem to offer a picture in higher resolution. Sorry.

Do any of these suburban lines connect with other nearby cities? Major cities?

Not at the moment, but that is the long-term plan for most of the 'S' lines.

It's the end of June and there are some troubles with official metro map, which might confuse anyone who doesn't live in Nanjing - apparently Shangyuanmen station on Line 3 is still not opened. Chinese Wikipedia indicates that it will open sometime in July, but maybe it will happen later

It appears to me that Nanjing is regarding anything within 30km metro while anything beyond suburban rail, regardless of rolling stock type, speed, or station intervals. Beijing for example also has its cutoff at 30km, and the cutoff between suburban rail and intercity rail at 70km. They also have a much better distinction among different modes of transportation, such as station interval for metro is 1km and speed up to 80km/h, suburban rail station interval is 6km and speed is up to 160km/h. I think we'll see this kind of standard being adopted across the country in the coming years.

Just as a matter of interest, how many cities around Nanjing could eventually be connected by S Rail lines to Nanjing.

Does Beijing have a standard station interval and speed for intercity rail?

According to what I've read lately, line 5 is starting construction soon. It will be followed by line 6, line 7, the first phase of line 9, the northern extension of line 1, the western extension of line 2, the southern extension of line 3, and the eastern extension of line 10, as well as the suburban Nanjing-Jurong (S6) and Nanjing-Yizheng (S5) lines. All of this should be open by 2020. By then, Nanjing metro will have a lenght of 599 km, of which 335 km will be urban metro.
In addition, I've seen the following additions to the plans:
  • I said a Western extension of line 2 is in the near term plans. This doesn't appear in the map I posted above (or in the last page if you are reading this through a cellphone), it will extend from Youfangqiao to Yuzui.
  • Both line 3 and line 4 will reach the new Nanjing North station (Nanjing Beizhan, not to be confused with the one which is near the First Yangtze river, the new will be near Linchang).
  • I also said the 'first phase of line 9' is going to be built soon. But this is all of what appears in the same map. Indeed, it will extend beyond Lvboyuan to a yet unnamed stop (It is clear that it will cross line S3 a.k.a. Nanjing-He county line at Tianbao, however). I already felt it would stop too short of what I would have liked.
  • Line 10 will be extended westwards from Yushan Lu to Haixia Kegongyuan.
  • Line 11 has been rerouted: From Xinma Lu it will go to Getang. Apparently it will run closer to the Yangtze, since it will cross line 3 at Liuzhou Donglu (They have restored the 3/11 interchange, which was cut down off the plans by the Nanjing-Tianchang (S8) line).
  • The other line that I felt it would end too short, line 13, now will extend across the Yangtze river. It will run to at least Yanshan Dadao and intersect line 10 three times! (Including the one on the map).
  • Line 15 is back! Originally in the northeastern part of the city but since absorbed by the Nanjing-Yizheng (S5) line, it's now back in the left bank of the Yangtze, mostly paralleling line 11. It will run from Nanjing North station (Nanjing Beizhan) to Laoshan.
  • The Nanjing-He county (S3) line is now visible U/C in Google Maps, and clearly goes more straight in Pukou.
  • It appears the Nanjing-Chuzhou (S4) line will get further into Nanjing.
  • The Nanjing-Tianchang (S8) will continue beyond its terminus of Taishan Xincun to Pukou Gongyuan following the previously planned route of line 11.
  • And finally, a second Nanjing-Chuzhou line running South of S4 appears to be planned. It would be S9.

Wudingmen station is also delayed due to land acquisition issues, it's suppose to have a combined station / shopping street design but so far the only thing completed is the ventilation shaft building. The issue is reportedly resolved recently so the station building shouldn't take long (the actual underground station has been finished long ago).

Shangyuanmen is a similar situation, land acquisition issue caused the tunneling boring operation to be delayed, and the cascading effect dragged the whole project down. Luckily Line 3 is of high priority so the city government allowed it to run skipping the station.

Beside the great metro system, and some suburban metro line, Nanjing recently opened a tram system also. But there is no overhead wire. Is this a diesel or battery tram? Or it uses APS technology for current collection? Please confirm.

It's a battery powered recharge system similar to Guangzhou's tram, the difference is Nanjing's system use conventional rechargeable battery while Guangzhou's is super capacitor. Nanjing's Hexi Tram is actually the world's first cable/3rd rail less electric tram system. They choose to go that route so that no gantry will clutter Hexi new district's sky, and that no 3rd rail can pose safety risks because the line does not have exclusive right of way. This has posed some problem during its operation as cars sometimes ignores the traffic signal and block the tram's way so schedule keeping is challenging to say the least.
