Obviously NOT.


The CRH380BL holds the record.

" during a subsequent test on January 10, 2011, a CRH380BL set reached a new record speed of 487.3 km/h (302.8 mph), breaking the previous record held by the CRH380A.[17]"

Keep in mind that the CRH380BL set that holds the record was a modified trainset with a higher motor:trailer ratio, while the CRH380AL set that has the second highest speed record is unmodified. I hold the unmodified trainset to be more legitimate, especially considering that the unmodified CRH380BL set only clocked 457 km/h.

I agree, among the passenger carrying trains, 380AL is the fastest.

I had no idea it was modified. Do you have a source for this?

And also an objective source that checked the CRH380AL to see if that wasn't secretly modified

IMO the CRH380AL is by far the fastest commercial CRH train to date, the 487.3km/h speed that CRH380B achieved was by a "special test configuration" train, it's a weird shortened 8M4T train. CNR only did it so it's not completely overshadowed by CSR's achievements.

In contrast the 486.1km/h record was set by a regular CRH380AL train (#6041) produced three month prior destined for commercial operations. It covered 220km in 34 minutes resulted in a stunning 388km/h average speed.

Are any railways now completed and available for tests of a new speed record?

Such as Beijing-Shijiazhuang-Zhengzhou or Dalian-Shenyang-Harbin?

I think they can test it on Beijing-Zhengzhou line if they wish, but they only have a couple of months of window now since it's set to open by the end of 2012.

Great pictures. For the first train I notice it says "CRH5A-4002" , what's going on with the name? Also, what is Cinova?

I'm fairly certain it says CRH6A.

The interior of the CRH6 looks more like a regional train than an intercity or high speed train to me. Nevertheless it's quite a good looking train

Is it a high-speed train? I though those are for short-distance commuter services with a top speed of 160km/h (or is it 200km/h)?

It was my understanding that the CRH brand was intended for high speed trains, like ICE or TGV. Of course, I could be wrong
