CRH380AL is a commercial train. The next one will take place by a special test train in March 2011.

I see. You are talking about the CIT400 and CIT500. I thought that today there may have the second test.

Now, that is 106km/h more than the operational 380km/h. Nice progress.

Chinese passenger train breaks world speed record

The Associated Press
Friday, December 3, 2010; 1:09 AM

BEIJING -- China's railway ministry says a Chinese passenger train has set a new record for speed, hitting 302 miles per hour (486 kilometers per hour) during a test run.

The official Xinhua News Agency said the feat took place Friday on the yet-to-be opened line linking China's two major cities of Beijing and Shanghai. It's scheduled to commence operations in 2012 and will halve the current travel time to five hours.

State television footage showed the sleek white train whipping past farm fields. The project is part of a massive government effort to link many of China's cities by high speed rail and reduce overcrowding on heavily used lines.

China now boasts some of the fastest passenger trains in the world. The speed of 302 mph (486 kph) was the fastest yet for an unmodified conventional commercial train, according China's railway ministry.
glad they mentioned 'unmodified conventional commercial train', otherwise the comments will again dwell on the TGV record.

This is fantastic news

Any idea how well the CRH-380BL did during the tests?

Considering a typical regional turboprop cruise at around 500kph (i.e. Dash 8), the short haul airline market in China is definitely losing to HSR.

Can rails and overhead lines handle trains running over 500kph?

I noticed in a couple of the videos that the CRH380A has what I think is perforated wheels, can anyone confirm this? If so is this the new design of wheels for the CRH380 series?

Guys..you should not hot-link your photos from Chinese web sites. They will take them down.

That being said..

Popeye loves trains...

We in the US may never see trains such as this because of our addiction to air travel. Maybe someday in the US we will have hi-speed trains in the Northeast and maybe California. I know the Governater is keen on hi-speed rail.

I'd love to ride on one of these beauties!

Enjoy the photos!

I posted this in another thread but I think it is more suitable here: In a couple of videos with the CRH380A I noticed what I think is perforated wheels, can anyone confirm this? If so is this the new design of wheels for future CRH380 series?

READ the post you quoted, and THINK. Then you will know how inappropriate your question is.

It is amazing ...One of China's high-speed trains broke the world record for unmodified commercial use on Friday during trial service, the Ministry of Railways (MOR) said.

The sleek white train CRH380A hit a speed of 486.1 kilometers per hour on the tracks between Zaozhuang City of Shandong Province and Bengbu City in eastern Anhui Province, which form a segment of the yet-to-be opened high-speed rail line linking Beijing and Shanghai.

The speed it traveled was as fast as a jet plane at low-speed cruising.

The train's previous speed record was 416.6 km/h set on Sep. 28 during its run between Shanghai and Hangzhou, capital city of east China's Zhejiang Province.
