So CRH2H looks nothing like other CRH2 series.

And CRH3A is rename CJ1 (Intercity 1) and CRH3G renamed CJ2 (Intercity 2).

I was confused by the looks of the CRH2H because it looks nothing like the CHR2:

Similarly CRH3A and CRH3G look nothing like CRH3/CRH380B series.

This is the "grandfather", the original Kawasaki E2 (1997):


This is the "father", the CRH2A from CSR Sifang (2007):


In a Chinese show they presented what was to be the new face of CRH2C:


Here's the front (the unused, it was just a cover), lying outdoors on a chinese factory:


This is the definitive CRH2C (2008), with two versions: the C1 to 300 km/h (6M 2T), and C2 to 350 km/h (8M):


And this is the new CRH2H (2014):

.....................................................................
For that matter, this is the first prototype of CRH380C, derived from the Velaro CN:


that is different from the final (2013):



Or it would be CRH1-380 Bombardier Sifang-CSR:


that eventually called CRH380D (2014):

Dear all,

as you might see here [http://www.bahnnews-austria.at/forum...c.php?t=12217], two sections of a CRH2H have been brought to Vienna for undergoing tests at the climatic wind channel of RTA. Unfortunately I didn't find quite much informations about those vehicles, the website of its manufacturer doesn't offer anything.

So, could anyone tell me more abou them? Especially: When heve they been ordered, how many units, when and where should they enter commercial services, and so on...

Thx a lot for your efforts & Greetings from Austria

Sybic

Actually, answers are already in this thread 70 ordered. Some have already delivered. Testing is underway. Commercial service possibly next year.

Dear Foxmulder,

during a search I've found that one: http://www.railjournal.com/index.php...ml?channel=542

At the first moment I'm afraid being uninformed to which subcategory the CRH2H in Vienna is actually belonging to: 57 trains with a maximum speed of 250km/h? Or even to those ones, which are manufactured by CNR Changchun and CSR Sifang?

However, during my first trial here I didn't find the passage in this thred where the 70 units are mentioned...

Greetings

CRH380D

Bombardier sees China safety certification for high-speed trains by end-Feb -exec

Jan 28 (Reuters) - Canada's Bombardier Inc expects to receive safety certification from China for its high-speed trains as early as next month, providing a springboard for more orders, the firm's top executive in the country said.

The regulatory clearance, after years of tests, means Bombardier will be able to begin delivering 80 of its CRH380D trains first ordered in 2009, worth $4 billion in total. China tightened rail safety rules after a fatal crash in 2011.

"In the next two weeks, by end of next month, (the train) is expected to get the certificate. Then we will start delivery," Bombardier China's president, Jianwei Zhang, told Reuters in an interview on Tuesday.

The trains, which can travel as fast as 380 kilometres per hour, are being jointly manufactured with a unit of domestic train maker CSR Corp . Bombardier's share of the deal was estimated to be $2 billion.

Asked whether the certification would generate new orders, Zhang said, "Absolutely...Frankly speaking, I cannot say too much, but I've already got an order." The official said he couldn't comment further before official confirmation of the order is announced.

China's cabinet says rail merger should follow market rules
Excerpt

SHANGHAI, March 26 (Reuters) - The merger of China's top train makers, China CNR Corp Ltd and CSR Corp Ltd , should follow market rules and ensure stable operations, a government report on a cabinet meeting said.

Wednesday's executive meeting of the State Council, or cabinet, discussed progress toward the merger, which would create a train giant able to compete globally with the likes of Siemens and Bombardier, but there were no details about when the companies might link.

The merger "must follow market rules and the principle of the companies acting voluntarily, create favourable conditions for restructuring, ensure the stable operations of the companies and promote improvements in efficiency", a report on the government's main website (gov.cn) quoted the cabinet as saying.

China built the world's longest high-speed train network in less than a decade and has expressed its desire to export its technology. The two state-owned firms however have fiercely competed against each other while trying to sell trains abroad.

A merged CNR-CSR would have combined annual revenue of about 200 billion yuan ($32.2 billion) based on 2013 company data, compared with Siemens' 75.9 billion euros ($83.2 billion) and Bombadier's $18.2 billion.

Nanningdong from/to Beihai in Guangxi. Sort of high speed commuter train. This is quite interesting.

This is not a HSR train. Rather a regular 160km/h EMU trainset.

I wonder if this is to do with wrong translation or a very lame PR tactic of calling any EMU an 'HSR'.

As for HSR exports China is yet to export its first HSR trainset beyond its borders.
