That's what it looks at least.

However I wonder about technical specs of all CRH trains in general.

To my understanding the original 350km/h rated CRH3 is essentially a Siemens Velaro (and so it is called - Velaro CN). It's all clear regarding other early CRH versions including 1, 2 and 5 as well as well as CRH380D/DL).

But what about other CRH380 versions? Some look identical like their 'predecessors' while others have design modifications. Are the components (like bogies, traction) also taken from the first generation CRH trains or are there some new and unique components? Or perhaps taken from completely different trains? It has been claimed that Chinese companies 'hold intellectual property rights' to the technology used in CRH380A (and other?) trainsets but I wonder what actual technologies are used, where they come from and are they new or existing/modified?

Difficult to see because some of the trains are far away. It seems you are missing the low-speed version of the CRH6 (with the round/flat front).

CHINA: CNR Tangshan rolled out its first CRH3A electric multiple-unit on June 8.

The CRH3A draws on technology used in the Siemens Veraro-derived CRH380 family of high speed trains, but is a lower-cost design intended for use on inter-city routes with maximum speeds between 160 and 250 km/h.

The eight-car unit has four aluminium-bodied motor cars and four trailer cars.

Does anyone have any specifics on this order, or this train?

EDIT: I lied; found some nice info on ALL the CRH3 trains and subtypes lol. Enjoy: http://www.eng.ku.ac.th/blog/wp-cont...NR%20After.pdf

How good are the restaurant kitchens of CRH-s, and how different are they on different CRH models?

The CRH3A appears to be CNR's competitor to CSR's CRH6.

It looks like it. I like how China has a good variety of High Speed Train sets. Here are more pictures and info for the CRH3A.

Good point about variety. I reckon it would have been nice if they all had different colours and patterns at least, like in Japan. Almost all CRH trains are white.

Then again, almost all China Railway rolling stock used to be green as well haha.

The CRH3A reminds me of the Pendolino (CRH5), but with a flattened nose.

Looks like I've got my wish for them to remove the black strip lining the windows, and am regretting it. Lol

CRH2s never had the strip, so you should know what they look like.

Not exactly in real life, but still worth sharing for those of you simulator junkies. Here is the CRH380BL for OpenBVE, with upgraded sounds and physics from the original ICE 3:
If any of you are curious about OpenBVE, proceed here:
http://obts.wikia.com/wiki/OBTS_Wiki

Siemens Velaro Pack - Version 1.9
Download here: http://www.mediafire.com/download/o9...elaro_V1.9.rar
Routes to run on:
http://www.mediafire.com/download/9r...Route_Pack.rar
http://downloads.bvefrance.fr/swade/LGV_OpenBVE.rar
http://www.mediafire.com/download/7f...Route_Pack.rar
V1.9 pack includes the following:
German DB 403 (ICE 3); 8 car and 16 car versions - 330 km/h - 370 km/h
German DB 406 (ICE 3MF); 8 car and 16 car versions - 330 km/h - 370 km/h
Spanish Renfe AVE-103 (Velaro E); 8 car and 16 car versions - 350 km/h - 400 km/h
Russian Sapsan (Velaro RUS); two 10 car versions (EVS1 and EVS2) - 250 km/h - 290 km/h
Chinese CRH380BL (CRH3C); 8 car and two 16 car versions- 380 km/h - 480 km/h

Updated propulsion sounds, acceleration physics, and carriage spacing. Also fixed tractive effort meter to display only tractive effort, and not acceleration.
Includes coupler setup for "double" train sets, courtesy of "Quork."
Now also includes the addition of 1st class and 2nd class coaches for AVE stock, updated exterior textures with final livery updates, and HVAC units on all cars.
Also has an accurate bistro car for the CRH3C (CRH380B), which in real life, has no doors.

The final update, V2.0, will feature passenger compartments with seats, and a 3D cab.

Original train is by Manuel Mejias
