With the way things are now, probably not in a LONG time. I haven't even been able to dig anything major up on the CRH-6, which was supposedly to be put in service by the end of this year.

CRH-6 shouldn't be high speed one tough. If I am not wrong it's max will be just around 180km/h

It sounds beautiful!

Updates about any CRH is really limited nowadays anyway... As I wrote before, I think most of the people who have been bringing updates from Chinese websites lost their enthusiasm after the accident and following slow down. Until a speed increase it will go like this I suspect. I don't think project is cancelled.

Or there is no longer a budget from the 50 Cent Party going towards rail promotion, since rail has become so unpopular with the firing of the MOR, the slow downs and the accident.

Rail is a must for China. Advertised or not China will continue to invest on it.

It's anybody's guess. But, the CRH380-series did 486km/h, and this is the first of the CRH500-series, 6M configuration, made to break records. So, make your own bet

I was unable to find any news or media coverage about this train.

I guess the train itself a good thing at this point because with all the negative media about speed at the cost of safety, I assume China will not roll out a faster train unless they are absolutely confident that its technological foundations are solid? Or am I being too optimistic/naive?

The negative media about speed, as well as the lowering of the operating speed of CRH at the hands of the new railway minister has nothing to do with "technological foundations". They have everything to do with politics, e.g. that of the airplane & oil industry.

Discussions about the politics behind all this have been all over Chinese language forums.
