No, I don't care whether the CRH500 looks like a toucan. It is sexy in its own right.

The CRH500 is gorgeous. I hope it's not a teaser and they will actually get it out running on regular 500km/h service sometime. I'm not sure what the specs are on it but I hope it's a train that can almost as efficiently run at 500km/h as the others at 350km/h.

I wonder whether or not the CRH6 will replace all the CRH1's in service. I kinda like the CRH1's too.

It's a technology demonstrator, we will never see it in regular services, however technologies learned from it will trickle down to production trains.

Are you sure? I know this one won't but did any official source tell "crh500" design will be never used?

By the way, they should sell those models

If this is true that makes me sad.

i don't care how fast it runs (500km/h will really raise track and train maintenance and operation costs) I just want the physical design, even if it "only" goes up to 380km/h, it will be a great train for regular revenue service.

They can certainly do that, CSR will have no problem giving things such as CRH380A a nose job.

CSR officially confirmed that Hong Kong MTR has ordered 9 sets of CRH380A High Speed Trainsets, Contract amount 1,360 million RMB, These trainsets will be used on the Guangzhou-Shenzhen-Hong Kong Express Rail Link.

Great news although I like the look of the CRH380B much better. I wonder how these trains will be painted. Is MTR going to paint them differently or will they be standard white CRH trains?

It's going to be so much faster to get from Hong Kong (Kowloon) to Shenzhen once this line is open. I took the MTR (forgot which line) from Kowloon to the border and it took a pretty long time.

I'm also wondering about this. I am hoping for a cool Hong Kong-themed livery, but I'm afraid it will be standard CRH livery, with a small MTR logo instead of the CRH logo. It is the same way with the German ICE 3's going to Amsterdam, some of which are owned by the Dutch NS, but have the same white/pink livery as DB.

Good news for CRH380B-lovers could be that I doubt it will just be those MTR CRH380A's that will make it into Hong Kong. I'm assuming CRH will do some of the runs with their trains, some of which might be CRH380B's

A bigger problem may be getting the Guangzhou-Beijing high speed railway to stay open at night.

I think MTR will paint their own scheme on those CRH380As.

I'm surprised(maybe shouldn't really be surprised) that MTR will be handling it's own part of the High Speed Rail line. I had a feeling that Hong Kong would let Beijing control the line since it's only a small part of the entire high speed rail network. I guess Beijing is steadfast on their agreement to leave the Hong Kong government alone for 50 years.

The jurisdiction issue for the Hong Kong section *did* cause lengthy delays during the planning process. It even threatened to obstruct plans to install mainland Chinese immigration officers at the Kowloon terminal. Really, anything which might be viewed as a transgression on Hong Kong's jurisdiction no matter how minor would have damaged the city's reputation for the rule of law.

Beijing was heavily pushing for mandatory "Patriotism" classes in HK schools. Only after pretty much everyone said they'd have no part in it did the CCP back down.

CCP better leave HK be...
