China develops high-speed trains with fold-up beds



Two bullet trains that can convert the sleeping berths to seats have rolled off the production line in northeast China's Jilin Province. With a maximum speed of 250 km per hour, the trains are designed to be able to run in temperatures as low as minus 40 degrees Celsius.

Folding.... Beds....

Congratulations, you've managed to match 1890s US rail technology. And 1950s Soviet technology. And 1990s Chinese technology. (and that's just off the top of my head)

Seriously, the whole folding beds thing is not a big deal at all. The temperature-proofing, vibration dampening, and speed are all MUCH more impressive. Having the basic capabilities of a sleeping car is not exactly news-worthy.

What are the likely destinations at that speed?

Maybe the place where the tests were done, the route from Harbin to Dalian, is a clue.

Harbin to Dalian isn't really long enough for sleeper trains at 250 kph.

And it is also open to 300 km/h service all winter. G48 and G50 take 3:30 for Harbin-Dalian.

Does anybody know if there are any concrete standarts for high-speed rolling stock in China (like TSI in directive 96/48/EC in Europe or Technical regulatory standarts for Shinkansen in Japan)? As my understanding is, there are Gb and TB standarts, but I could find only standarts (wheels, passenger doors, brakes and etc.) for the maximum speed 200 km/h...

How China's high-speed trains run in extreme cold



This is the world's first high-speed railway that operates in extreme cold. Check out how workers make trains run safely at temperatures as low as minus 40 degrees Celsius in NE China for the past 4 years.

I think you have missed the point. This is not hailed as a breakthrough technology, rather than a new combination of current concepts. Previous attempts at running high speed sleeper trains in China have focused on permanent fixed sleeping berths, meaning that those trainsets were useless for daylight running when needed. Likewise, all seat high speed trains were unpopular for overnight services when trialled.

Thus these new trains can add flexibility and capacity when required for daytime operations, then convert into a long distance sleeper for overnight operations. Thus the trains can virtually operate 24 hours a day. Plus they can operate in extreme weathers suggest these trains are likely to operate D services from Dongbei (North East China) to Beijing and beyond at night. Variants of these trains might also be used on the Beijing-Urumqi overnight route which will open to traffic during 2017, greatly reducing the currently 40+ hour services.

Unlike Europe and other High Speed Railway countries in Asia, China has the need, distances, capacity and passenger demand to warrant long distance sleeper HSR services. Rather than the 4 hour ideal maximum train journeys used by other countries to compete against air travel.

Hopefully this means there will more over night sleeper between Beijing-Shanghai, Shanghai-Guangzhou and Beijing-Guangzhou. These are incredibly useful for business travel, since you don't lose a business day while traveling and you skip one night of hotel as a bonus.

Any official confirmation for speeds going back to 250 kmph and 350 kmph? There plenty of rumors and lots of hints, but I can't find anything solid.

Family tree of CRH trains

From @铁路小亨

After 10 years development , CRH trains has become a big family , reflecting the quick growing demand of transports in China .

From absorbing techs from different platforms , to forming Chinese original CRH trains .

I've love to see the 380km/h designated trains finally run at 380km/h.

China has only exported, as far as I know, nine CRH380A for MTR Hong Kong.

If those trains for Macedonian are the ones that I believe, in fact there are 6 trains (4 diesel and 2 electric) of medium distance for 140 km/h for 4.17 M € each.even though CSR counts them as HST.

They also won the Mexico contest, which included 12 trains CRH380A, but was canceled.
