I have seen 3 or 4 in the cab from Xian to Zhenzhou, multiple times.

They stand.

Probably my favourite of all the CRH sets.

There aren't many of those being built, right?

Is that in regular service or just some kind of trial operation? How many of those have been ordered?

I don't think so, the CRH3G lacks the middle door the CRH6 high volume commuter train has, so it's probably designed for the traditional 200-250km CRC CRH service. Not metro company operated commuter service that CRH6 is designed for.

I think the CLs have been put into regular operation.

That is a beautiful looking high speed commuter train! Any idea where these pictures were taken? Looking at the background, always cranes and new buildings going up in China!

The location is Puzheng factory (Nanjing) of China South Railway (CSR). Yes 160-200km/h CRHs are perfect for intercity or commuter rails.

After getting their own HSR projects killed years ago I'm glad they are again assembling high speed EMUs for CRH.

I now wonder about the other CRH6 model, it seems that news about that one has died off completely, I never heard about them being competitors but that might be a possibility.

Although I like design of the CL, I wonder what it is, I was thinking the velaro platform with a nosejob?
