Well it probably won't as it's a specially designed test train with a dedicated drive car, I don't think it can be driven the other way in full speed.

China CNR Corp. stocks climb on Bangladesh order

BEIJING, April 5 (Xinhua) -- Shares of China CNR Corp., the country's second-largest train maker, gained after media reported that Bangladesh will purchase key high-speed rail technologies from the company's subsidiary.

As of 11 a.m., the company's stocks had climbed 0.97 percent to 4.15 yuan (0.66 U.S. dollars) per share on the Shanghai Stock Exchange.

China CNR Corp.'s Dalian Electric Traction Research and Development Center will export traction inverters and network control systems to Bangladesh, according to the reports. This will be the first time for China to export its own traction and network control systems, which are key technologies of such trains, according to a Beijing Times article.

The contract contains 20 sets of high-speed rail network control systems, 40 sets of traction inverters and 40 sets of auxiliary inverters, the newspaper said without mentioning how much the contract is worth.

China CNR is scheduled to release its financial report on April 28. It said in January that it expected to see its net profit surge over 50 percent in 2011 from a year earlier, on China's booming railway and metro construction.

The profit estimate came despite the company's recall of a raft of trains after a deadly accident last summer.

On July 23 of 2011, a high-speed train slammed into a stalled train near the city of Wenzhou in the eastern province of Zhejiang, leaving 40 dead and 172 injured.

The company recalled 54 trains it supplied for the high-speed rail between Beijing and Shanghai three weeks later. All the trains resumed service in December after modifications and repeated tests, according to the Ministry of Railways.

Interesting, is Bangladesh gonna build the train locally? For some reason I suspect this is real HSR, probably another sub high speed EMU.

Yes, all locomotive and rolling stock makers are state owned corporations, including joint ventures with foreign companies. However many component makers are private companies.

What is the track gauge of the Bangladesh high speed railway? Existing 1676 mm, or some other?

According to the CRI report 20 trainsets will be exported.

China's High-speed Rail Technology Goes Abroad
2012-04-05 10:35:58 CRIENGLISH.com Web Editor: yangyang66

http://english.cri.cn/6909/2012/04/05/2982s691396.htm

China has signed a contract to provide high-speed trains to Bangladesh in a deal that marks the first time for the export of China-made high-speed rail technology, the Beijing Times reports.

Under the contract, China CNR Corporation Limited will assemble 20 high-speed trains with a total of 60 cars for Bangladesh. The terms also require China to supply 20 network control systems, 40 traction inverters and 40 auxiliary inverters.

The deal is the first under which China will export its self-improved network control systems and traction inverters after a long period of innovation and improvements to high-speed train technology it originally imported. The move indicates that China is able to compete in the area of high-speed rail technology in the international arena.

Network control and traction systems are core high-speed train technologies. Traction systems determine a train's stability and carrying capacity, while network control systems direct the operation of the trains.

that's the best CRH train I've ever seen.

BTW who knows what's the green window on the left of the picture?

What's that 380D? I means it is the development of some other type? I mean, as far as I know, CRH380A was developed from CRH2 which has its roots in Kawasaki E2. Has CRH380D a similar story?

Zefiro 380. The pictures above were captured in Bombardier Sifang factory in Qingdao. The green color Tibetan 25T on the left were also produced by Bombardier Sifang Transportation.

I've just looked back through the Bangladesh Railway thread in the Bangladesh forum and can't see any discussion of high speed rail plans. The supposed Bangladeshi order is for twenty trainsets, and I did find that Bangladesh Railway has ordered twenty DMUs from a Chinese manufacturer.

I suspect that Bangladeshi sources are referring to these trains as "high speed" because they're faster than existing Bangladeshi trains, and Chinese reporters haven't thought to question it. This seems to be quite common in developing countries, because Chinese plans for an "iron Silk Road" and new railways in countries like Laos get reported as high speed rail when they are frieght-oriented and not HSR by Chinese or international standards.
