Ahh.....the old CRH6 "debate"

I didn't know about the CRH1E until sometime last week when I ran across a youtube video with a train that I didn't recognize. Interesting how two versions of the same train could look so different. This difference reminded me of the CHR6.

CRH1E is not very common but it was known and pictures have been circulating in this forum too.

However, I think it would make better sense to give those trains different number names.

Once I was on a CRH train and this guy was running late and got in to my car (closet to the stairs) thought he can walk to the other end of the train, unfortunately it's not a L but rather two regular 380As linked together so he couldn't get to his seat. Must be a somewhat railway savvy guy because he was explaining to the conductor that his seat is in #14 car so he thought this is a 16 car L train. Or I guess he's not because he should know the other stairs lead to his half of the train......

I'm sure he could have looked up and down the train when he was on the platform and determined the composition of the vehicle he was boarding. In my experience people tend not to do this kind of thing - they get all caught up in trying to find the meaning they want in car codes and instructions, rather than looking at the situation for themselves and appraising it.

I was travelling with others once and catching a train from Gare Du Lyon in Paris, everyone else was arguing because the cars 'stopped' at 8 and ours is 18, so they all argued and shouted on the platform. I carried on walking 20 metres to see if the train in front of it was connected to the one which had ran out of cars - it was, so said to my friends "Look", whilst pointing to the noses of the two TGV power cars joined together. They looked at me, looked at the train, looked at me again, and all in sync everyone stopped arguing and carried on walking up the platform to car 18, which was our car. I love how people fail to notice what is there to notice,because they are too busy trying to notice what they think should be there.

Okay, that had me laughing.

Looking good. I wonder if they'll change that orange line to blue.

I think they should keep the yellow to distinguish it from the mainline CRH trains.

Is the CRH6 supposed to eventually replace the CRH1 or does it play an entirely different role than the CRH1.

I know they use the CRH1 extensively on the Guangshen and the GuangZhu Intercity, (not sure about Shanghai to Nanjing anymore)....it seems like the CHR6 is supposed to play a big part in the "intercity" role like the CRH1.

not really. CRH1 is still being widely used.

Here's a new CRH1B (with an 1E head) under test run

ya i think the CRH 6 will play a huge role in high speed short haul regional (ICL)/commuter rail lines. While the CRH 1 will be used for short haul PDL routes

The CRH380AL, obviously. It clocked at 489kmh or somewhere near there. Of course, we're all still waiting for the CRH500 (aka toucan) to break 500.
