Finally, this time a video of the CRH380BL set that set the new record of 487.3 km/h:

Enjoy

Thanks for the video!

Before the bashing starts, let's just put it out there that the 487.3 was not a world record of anything, it's a Chinese rail speed record of any train (modified and unmodified). Carry on.

nothing yet... you'll have to wait till late 2011 or early 2012, when those sets actually start hitting the rails.

A interesting pic found ...

CIT400A, the sixth comprehensive test trainset of CRH, aim speed is 500km/h, will be used as 380km/h track inspection train after the speed test in March.
CIT400B (CNR) and CIT500 (CSR) are coming soon!



CIT001 (CRH5-000) "Doctor Yellow", 250km/h comprehensive test train



CRH2-010A "Doctor White", 250 km/h comprehensive test train


CRH2-061C and CRH2-068C, 350km/h track inspection train


CIT380A (formerly known as CRH2-150C or CRH380A test train), 350km/h comprehensive test train

Any tech specs on the CIT400A?

By the way, a quick video of a CRH380BL set passing at high speeds.

CIT400A has aim speed of 500km/h? is that the top physical test speed? or top regular operational speed?

is CIT400A the train that will try to break the 574km/h world record? some chinese officials said late last year that a heavily modified train will try to break the 574km/h. Hope this is the one.

500 km/h is the aim test top speed, the train will be operate at 380 km/h in service

CIT500 will be the train to break record

CIT400A

Vincent,
I don't think the Chinese will try to break the French world record straight away.

First they will have to gather sufficient data to see how the CIT 400 behave at around 500 km/h. Then they will modify the set accordingly then they will try to reach higher and higher speed, all of them above 500 km/h. It is believed that the rail /wheel contact is at its limits between 630 -700 km/h.

For the catenary the limit (at least the limit of the French catenary used for the world record) is around 620 km/h.

At the above speeds aereodynamic behaviour plays an extremely important role..


I am looking forward to see these experiments.

i heard that the world record will be broken using the Shanghai-Beijing track. So i guess that means they will use CIT500 to do it before mid June? if so, i guess CIT500 will be rolling out within couple months.

Rumor says that CNR's CIT400B will be delivered in a couple of days, and CSR's CIT500 is now under manufacture, and the 500km/h test and the 600km/h test are expected to be lauched before mid 2011
