Beijing Subway - Beijing Suburban Railway

Beijing Suburban Railway

The Beijing Suburban Railway is a mass transit rail system that complements the Beijing Subway and provides commuter train service to outlying suburban districts and counties. Six "S"-numbered lines have been planned. The Beijing Suburban Railway is managed separately from the subway and has a different fare structure. Line S2, opened August 6, 2008, runs from the Beijing North Railway Station to Yanqing County, and provides direct urban rail access to the Great Wall at Badaling. The Beijing North Station is located near the subway stop at Xizhimen (Subway Lines 2, 4, 13). Line S1 will channel riders from Mentougou District west of the city to Pingguoyuan and Wulu, the western terminus of Line 1 and Line 6.

Famous quotes containing the words railway and/or suburban:

    Her personality had an architectonic quality; I think of her when I see some of the great London railway termini, especially St. Pancras, with its soot and turrets, and she overshadowed her own daughters, whom she did not understand—my mother, who liked things to be nice; my dotty aunt. But my mother had not the strength to put even some physical distance between them, let alone keep the old monster at emotional arm’s length.
    Angela Carter (1940–1992)

    More than illness or death, the American journalist fears standing alone against the whim of his owners or the prejudices of his audience. Deprive William Safire of the insignia of the New York Times, and he would have a hard time selling his truths to a weekly broadsheet in suburban Duluth.
    Lewis H. Lapham (b. 1935)
