well, if you reference the other video i posted back in October, you will see that both the BL and the AL accelerate out of this station at relatively equivalent rates:



Both trainsets take about 45 seconds from starting acceleration to the time the leave the station completely.

They are probably both aligned with their acceleration characteristics by their software. It is likely they both could accelerate a little faster than they typically do > 160km/h

I wanted to post this video by Silver Swordsman from the train races thread. CRH is so awesome:

That is one fantastic one of a kind video.

What is the background here? I guess it's not a normal run?

^ The station they passed is Kunshan, which supports the Beijing - Shanghai HSR and the Shanghai - Nanjing HSR. So, this kind of activity happens during normal operation it seems.

Go China!

PS, that video isnt' mine. It's just something relevant I found on my Youtube Favorite list.

Word has it that the order for the CRH380D has been modified. Instead of the original breakdown of 20 D sets and 60 DL sets, there will only be 70 D sets. Can anyone confirm?

Just wondering, why do the CRH380AL models have two catenary "humps" on each power-collector car? Since there are two PC cars in each AL consist, that means that each train has a total of [b]4]/b] pantographs. It seems unnecessary and expensive, since most 16-car models only need two pantographs to begin with.

Can anyone explain this?

Well the 8 car versions would only have two pantographs, which seems like a sensible minimum redundancy to me.

I concluded with the 3D modeling trains for MSTS CRH380A
并得出结论与微软列车模拟器CRH380A列车的三维建模

Now I only need to add the file parameters. and eng. sd is ready for this train!

现在我只需要添加的文件的参数. ENG. SD是这列火车!

CRH380A - 8 cars


CRH380AL - 16 cars


CIT400A - 8 car

This is said to be a 160-200km/h CRH6 prototype at CSR Puzhen.



Compare to earlier render
