I don't see any station called Tiaosanta on the subway map. Or is this one on another line?

Dujiangyan line

It opened on 12th of previous month:
http://www.chinadaily.com.cn/regiona...nt_9842320.htm

65 km. Maximum speed 220 km/h. 15 stations. 30 minutes trip time.

How does this work out? 2 minutes per station. Assume 30 second station stop, doors open to doors closed. This leaves 90 seconds to start moving , cover 4 km and stop. Or 45 seconds to cover 2 km, average speed 45 m/s (162 km/h). Accelerating at 1 m/s^2 for 45 seconds would mean average speed of just 22,5 m/s. Accelerating at, say, 2 m/s^2 to 60 m/s (216 km/h) for 30 seconds and then 15 s steady at 60 m/s would come close, average of 40 m/s. So the acceleration must be over 2 m/s^2. But is it not kind of uncomfortably abrupt?

No train stops in every station!

Oh, come on. Frist tier stations have many trains a day, then lesser important stations have just a couple of trains a day, etc. It's not like you have all the trains stopping in every station, it wouldn't make sense, especially for high speed lines.

Nice station, but I think for the interiors they should reduce the usage of stones. Its too much.

In suburbs? With under 65 km to the central city?

If a station has just a couple of trains per day then the people will not bother showing up in the station and will travel by bus, car or bicycle instead.

Well it's quite usual in my country for little villages close to the city. They build a tiny stop (sometimes a mere platform) and only a couple of trains a day stop there. I don't think it's so strange.

Yes, but can anybody tell what the train schedule between Chengdu and Dujiangyan actually is like?

The map reminds me of the Tokyo Metro one, in terms of style and complexity (well, not as complicated, but becoming more complicated).

Markings on the entrance/exit of trains on the platform are rather confusing; arrows pointing towards each other. This sure does not address the common problem of the subways in China: people do not line up to enter the trains and not waiting for people to leave first.

I think that's a problem everywhere. Even orderly Singaporeans rush the doors when they open during rush hour. Some Singapore MRT stations employ assistants to encourage riders to move down to the end of the platform and not bunch up around the middle of the platform around the stairs. I wonder if China could ask the "pushers" that cram people into subway cars to help regulate passenger flow. Might too dangerous trying to regulate a fast pushing and shoving crowd, though.
