Hmm, is it just a new livery? Looks like there's some other difference to me.

With trunk lines opening one by one they are running out of lines that can facilitate its record breaking run.

Not really, it's just China's HSR lines are still way, way under used. Most of the lines are not running at nearly the frequency of the Japanese.

How about compared to lines in Europe? Germany, France, Italy, UK (Eurostar)?

I really dont think there will be new line shortage for coming 4-5 years

Well, yeah I was exaggerating but still there is a point when you think Deutsche Bahn has around "only" 250 ICE train sets (total of all versions).

Also, when you think the previous orders totaling 900 sets, scale is immense.

Is this a Velaro train? Why this design when the CRH1, CRH2, CRH5 and CRH6 are already available for "slower" high speed rail?

IMO the CRH3A is designed to compete with CRH6A, it will mainly used for Inter-City lines such as Beijing-Zhangjiakou etc

  拿北车的CRH3A型城际动车组为例,分为160公里、200公里和250公里三种时速。其最大的特点是载客量大,设有站席,8辆编组的最大定员可达到1454人,比现行的动车组多出40%,速度则是大客车的2到4倍。城际动车组既可以在新线上运行,也可以在经过信号改造后的普通线上运行,可以为旅客带来较低的票价。

CRH380D must be the most beautiful HSR trainset ever designed.
