I see, but why they are using such an unconventional system? Ordinary electric tram is much cheaper, and parts are also widely available. Battery tram is costly, and maintenance is also costly.

I suggest, if they construct any other tram route in future, they should construct as simple ordinary electric tram, i.e, current collection from overhead wire.

Because compare to conventional tram the cable less battery quick charge tram is cheaper, easy to maintain, and safer. You don't have to build and maintain the gantry and wires, also eliminate the risks involved such as electrocution or weather damaging the wires. The tram also won't stuck midway during power outage as it will always be able to get to the next station.

Nanjing Line 1 , Zhonghuamen sta.(中华门站)

Photo by @广铁深段0001

He is a rail fan in Guangzhou , traveled to Nanjing in Feb

Zhonghuamen sta. (中华门站) is an elevated station . Between two road-bridges . Therefore , you can easily take photos of the trains .


The rolling stocks were made by Alstom , same shape as line 2\10 in Nanjing , and Line 1\2\3\10 in shanghai.
As you can see , the logo of Nanjing Metro is on the left side of the car , looks like a Plum flower (do you think so?) .


This section is in the urban area , and the rail bridge with trains has become part of the metropolitan landscape.


Curve is the best part !


Sticker of carriage number on the face , but I don't know what it define the set of trains .


Platform screen doors are equipped at Zhonghuamen sta , on the curved platform.


This pic is dark . There are residential building around the line too .


He ended with bus no.88 .
By the way , 8 is a lucky number in China , it means "become fortune" .

Airport Line (S1)

photoed by @赵特特爱轨交

Nanjing–Gaochun Intercity Railway , also called Airport line or S1 . opened in 2014 . Is the railway that link Nanjing city and Nanjing Lukou International Airport . A set of rolling stock is constituted by six B-size cars , which can reach 100 km/h . These 17 train sets were made by Nanjing Puzhen Rolling Stock Works


This is the curve and the underground-overground transition section , so you will impressed by the smooth body of the train .


Full image of the train , a driver and the other two staffs are in the driver cab , maybe doing some training ?


Like other train did , the logo of Nanjing Metro is on the side face.


Meeting with her friends ! The train is running on the right .

Rolling stock of line 3 , is the 6A-train , 46 sets in total . It's shape is similar to the rolling stock of Mumbai Metro, which were also made by Nanjing Puzhen Rolling Stock Works
It's smile is a little bit wired I think .


Rolling stock of line 10 , 21 sets in total , also made by Nanjing Puzhen Rolling Stock Works , it is the only one kind of train in China which is in gold .


S1 line (Airport line)


Rolling stock of S8 line, is the same type as S1 , but in 4 cars , 26 sets in total . It can reach 100 km/h in operation . The platform safety doors cover parts of it's face .

The smile stuck with the concept pretty well, so we know it's a weird smile for four years already.

A disappointing news regarding Nanjing Metro Line S9 (Nanjing-Gaochun Line 2nd Phase), the original expectation is that it will be open sometime this year, now the words are basic infrastructure construction should be done by the first half of the year, and track laying plus decoration commencing afterward. The latest published bidding document regarding a contract for inspection work gave a 20 month inspection period starting in April, so we'd be lucky to have an operational line by the end of next year! That's fully two years behind schedule considering it's originally set to open by the end of 2015.

S9 connects Lukou Airport with Gaochun District, line length is 52.39km with 6 stations, operating speed is 120km/h. If it opens by the end of 2017 or even early 2018 it'll open at roughly the same time as S7 Nanjing-Lishui line.

南京地铁:宁高城际二期最早明年底通车
2016-03-22 图吧公交新闻
在规划或在建的南京地铁项目中,如果能找到一条比宁高城际线先后有着多个名字的线路还真不容易。不仅如此,除了名字,有关宁高城际二期的通车运营时间也是一变再变,好在终于有了靠谱的消息。昨天,南京地铁发布《南京至高淳城际轨道禄口新城南站至高淳段工程质量检测》招标公告,其中明确了检测服务时间为20个月。以此推算,不要说今年10月通车无望,能在明年通车就不错了。
经过多次修改后,最早所谓的宁高城际实际上已经变成了如今的三条线路,即目前已经运营的宁高一期S1线(又称机场线)、在建的宁高二期(禄口新城南站至高淳)的高淳段S9,以及已在溧水区全面开工建设的宁溧城际段S7。由于宁高二期开工建设相对较早,对于这条从南京城区到高淳全程只需要1个多小时的城际线通车时间不少市民翘首以盼。毕竟,目前从南京至高淳主要乘坐从南京南站出发前往高淳的大巴,每遇客流高峰,可以用供不应求来形容。所以,在不少人眼里,宁高二期的通车不仅节省了时间,更能疏导该方向的公路客流。
按照规划,宁高二期高淳段全线设6座车站,经江宁、溧水、高淳三个区,至高淳站。线路全长约52.39公里,在禄口新城南站与机场线同站台换乘,沿途设铜山站、石湫站、明觉站、高淳北站、高淳站等5个车站,其中铜山站为地下一层、地面厅车站,其余为高架站。由于宁高城际二期设计时速为120公里,将会比宁高城际一期(S1线)100公里/小时跑得更快。因此,即便算上在禄口同站台换乘的时间,从南京南站到高淳也就一个多小时。虽然比目前走高速的大巴省不了多少时间,但至少多了一个出行选择。
不仅如此,宁高二期高淳段在通车时间上也是一变再变,最开始的说法是2015年年底,之后变成今年10月份。但根据前不久结束的南京市两会中由交通和地铁部门相关负责人透露的消息,只是说今年上半年完成土建,下半年转入装潢和铺轨阶段,预计“十三五”期间建成。根据今年早些时候地铁对外发布的铺轨招标公告,宁高二期高淳段的确已经进入到预设铺轨阶段,于是有不少网友又开始憧憬今年年底通车。
昨天,南京地铁发布《南京至高淳城际轨道禄口新城南站至高淳段工程质量检测》招标公告,其中明确测量服务期为自业主向检测单位发出中标通知书之日起,至工程正式运营之日止,计划总工期约20个月,考虑到招标截至时间为4月11日,也就是说等正式公布中标,时间上还要更靠后。即便以5月来算,20个月的计划服务总工期最早也要延续至2018年。所以说,宁高二期赶在明年年底前通车就不错了。(记者 陈彦)

Trial drilling for the southern end of Line 5 has started at Fuzimiao. Prep work started in late 2015 with a test station at Jianning Rd and full line surveying started early this year. The line will connect the Northwest corner of Nanjing with the Southeast corner, total length is 37km with 30 stations. Expected opening is 2020, it's also the first line in Nanjing utilizing the PPP model, with the Greenland Group investing RMB 31.3 billion in it.

The good news is regarding Line 4, main structure construction for 17 of the 18 stations are completed, all 31 tunneling sections are through, now it's expected that construction will be completed by October, and trial operation starting by the end of the year. Line 4 is 33km long with 18 stations, full speed construction didn't start until the last few days of 2012 and tunneling in mid-late 2013. So far they have kept with the schedule so fingers crossed it'll be done by the end of this year.

Line 2 has a elevated and above ground section of about 13 km . So you can easily enjoy the scene of trains running .

if line four opens this year then the total length of the system will exceed 250kms. Moving into third place in China assuming GZ doesnt open any new lines or extensions.

I think Line 6 Phase 2 and Line 7 is opening this year in Guangzhou. That is at least 25 km of new lines for Guangzhou right there. Of course if you include the Fmetro line and it's extension then Guangzhou is still very much ahead of Nanjing. Then there is Shenzhen which will open 100km of subway this year putting it at 270km.

Kimchi Media Launches its first Chinese Transportation App: Nanjing Metro!
After receiving an amazing feedback with Bangkok Metro, we at Kimchi Media have decided to widen our portfolio by bringing our services to even more cities.

Today we’re proud to announce the first one: introducing Nanjing Metro!



With just over 10 years of life, Nanjing Metro has now six lines, traveling a total length of 225 kilometers (140 mi).
More impressively, the Nanjing network was just two lines prior to 2014, meaning that Nanjing City has seen a tremendous growth in the last two years alone.
Nanjing Metro ridership reaches about 2 million people every day, making it one of the busiest Metro Networks in the world.
Despite having 4 brand new lines, Nanjing Metro development has no sign of slowing down.
Three more lines are expected to open within two years:
  • Line 4, 18 stations, will make the eastern side of Nanjing even more accessible;
  • Line S3, 19 stations, will connect Nanjing to its neighbor city of Hexian;
  • Line S9, 6 stations, will be connected to Line S1 on the south-eastern area of Nanjing;
We’re proud of our new product and we can’t wait to hear what you all think!
Download Nanjing Metro on the App Store, free.
Original article: https://medium.com/kimchi-media/nanj...9f2#.n2h7s7qy4

Spoiler alert: I'm the developer
Please let me know what you guys think!

Have a nice day~

very nice. Looks a lot like the explore metro apps (but they don't have Nanjing).

Thank you

As a former resident of Guangzhou and Shanghai, I've been using their apps since 2009!

I simply wanted the same app for other cities where I live or visit frequently, they didn't offer them so I've built them myself
