sigh, the original photographer specifically emphasized in his ourail.com thread: cross-posting his pics is prohibited. He's so pissed off by this rednet.cn cross-post thread that he might not consider releasing any CIT500 pics once they are available. shame.

yes, the pics now appears in most Chinese railway forums that's why I waited for a couple of days to post them on skyscrapercity.

But I think we could still expect the author to publish CIT500 pictures once the trainset ia avaliable.

yeah I know. And rednet.cn is not the first. I was pretty sure some one was bound to cross-post them though, some people just can't help doing it, even when OP told them not to.

I don't have a high enough level on the forum that he would post future pictures, so I guess I won't be able to see his pictures right after he posts them again.

Ugh, can't they change the font to at least to something to match the modernity of the train? Maybe something like Han Wang ZonYi or Meiryo UI?

Great pictures!!!

I dont understand the photographer.. why is he putting pictures then? You label them and after that the point of internet forums is sharing... If he doesnt want people to see them then yeah he shouldn't have put them online.

Are CIT trains suppose to be used to break any records? I thought they are purely track inspection vehicles, so far only regular passenger trainsets are used to break records.

I guess the photographer is a railway employee, the CRH400A is still a top secret of the MOR, if to many people see the pictures before the official media reported it's rolled-off line, that will bring the troublesome to the photographer and people who help him to take the pictures

I don't really like that train to be honest, doesn't look right to me. Anyway, if they're going to attempt to break the world speed record (set by Alstom in 2007) I wish them luck.

And then of course it's up to Alstom to show who's king in high speed rail... Alstom!

@greenlion, what do we know about those 500km/h and 600km/h trainset projects? Any release and test schedule? For what lines are they supposed to be planned?

Thank you very much far all your contributions in these threads btw

Do you happen to know if "CIT400" and "CRH400A" are different designations of the same train? The nomenclature of the MOR can be really confusing sometimes.

thanks for the clarification.

I think the chinese name of the train, 综合检测车 - comprehensive inspection train, proved this trainset is exactly CIT400A.

the project was called CIT400A since the beginning of the study work, and when the train is ready, suddenly the MOR changed the designations to CRH400, so that the trainset became CRH400A-001.

my guess is that the CRH400A, who is obviously a modified version of CRH380A in terms of design, have great chances tobe a prototype of the next generation CRH trainset, if the train perfomances well in test run.

Sorry As far as I know, the CIT500 is still a top secret, but the test will be on Jinghu PDL for sure.

It's the prototype modle of CRH380C and CIT400B, I guess they will change the name of CIT400B to CRH400B

the real train had rolled off line and will deliver to MOR and CARS
