the old station house was lifted from ground and moved to a nearby new location. It is preserved and will reopen as a railway museum.

Last picture was even better. This one is special. I am not sure whether I like this one or my all time favorite Guangzhou station more. What a dilemma..

No, it was not only one train. If one train slows down, the following trains must follow behind it.

I was in Beijing South Station yesterday, about half Beijing–Shanghai trains delayed.

Just used it yesterday from Beijing to Nanjing and today from Nanjing to Shanghai. No problems whatsoever. It is really amazing, you have the feeling to sit in a plane and fly at an altitude of 25 meters through the suburban jungle of Shanghai. The only thing they should improve is the choice of food in the restaurant. They only had one meal which was ok, but no variety.

At least they have apologised to the public, taking out adverts in the papers to apologise for the more than a dozen power failures in its first week of operation and promising they will be fixed.

Railway construction starts in China

15 July 2011

CHINA: Construction is scheduled to begin this month on a 168 km line linking Jingzhou in Hubei province with Yueyang in Hunan. The alignment is being designed for 160 km/h running, and construction is expected to take three years at a cost of 11·4bn yuan.

Meanwhile, local approval has been given for an 80 km railway between Tangshan and Caofeidian in Hebei province, a 200 km/h mixed-traffic line with five stations.

The National Development & Reform Commission has approved the feasibility study for a 350 km double-track 200 km/h electrified line from Jiujiang in Jiangxi province to Quzhou in Zhejiang which is expected to take four years to buil

The World Bank is providing a US$200m loan towards construction of the 360 km PDL between Jilin, Hunchun and Tumen (RG 4.11 p9).

從上貼新聞看, 新鐵路部長上任新建的三段鐵路, 不要說350千米時速了, 250都不到. 這不是自毀長城大倒退嗎? 設立高指標, 才有動力追求技術創新和突破.

最後說向世銀借款2億米元建 Hunchun 至 Tumen 段 200千米時速的客運專線.

這就更奇怪了, 劉志軍主政時, 鐵路建設都是政府投資. 中國政府有的是錢, 外匯3萬億, 人民幣可以自生. 為何要向世銀借錢呢? 這類似有一千家財的財主佬向另一高利貸借錢, 這不是明顯送利給別人嗎? 新鐵路部長在干什麼? 輸送利益?

沈丹客运专线 首榀箱梁架好
2011年07月08日08:26 辽一网-华商晨报

  晨报讯(记者 谭皓 通讯员 呼兴宝)昨日上午,一片长32.6米、重800吨的巨大箱梁被稳稳地安放在柳河特大桥的桥墩上,沈丹客运专线首榀箱梁顺利架设成功。

  沈阳至丹东客运专线全长207公里,设计时速250公里。

  为保证速度,沈丹客运专线设计有81公里长的隧道和42公里长的桥梁。客运专线新建特大、大中桥梁共86座,桥梁长度占正线线路长度30%还多,位于沈阳市陈相镇境内的柳河特大桥全长3.5公里,是比较大型的一座桥梁。

  箱梁是桥梁工程中梁的一种,内部为空心状,上部两侧有翼缘,类似箱子,在哈大客专中广泛使用。

  沈丹客专地处辽宁省东南部沈阳市、本溪市和丹东市境内,起自沈阳南站,经本溪、南芬、通远堡、凤凰城,止于丹东市,2010年3月17日开工建设,工期4年。

Are there any plans to continue the high speed line across the border?
