since in May I has saw 321km/h about 30min+ from Tianjin to Beijing South and got was 325km/h on the return

Faster and Quicker: Guangzhou-Shenzhen Segment of Beijing-Hong Kong HSR To Open Early 2012
Posted on 28 October 2011 by David Feng

The long-awaited Guangzhou-Shenzhen segment of the Beijing-Hong Kong HSR will finally open up in early in January 2012, in time for the 2012 Spring Festival peak travel season.

This stretch of the Beijing-Hong Kong HSR will be 142 km in length (which includes the Hong Kong segment). Trains will take about 30 minutes to run the stretch from Guangzhou South to Shenzhen North, and will run through:

Beijing

Shijiazhuang

Wuhan

Guangzhou South
Qingsheng
Humen
Guangming
Shenzhen North
Shenzhen Futian
West Kowloon (Hong Kong)

Missing now are the trains. Due to the lack of CRH380BL trains (recalled to optimize security systems on these trains), China’s HSR faces a temporary trainset shortage, but news is coming out that an increasing number of these recalled CRH380BL trains are slowly heading back onto the rails for tests and eventual re-entry into service.

In nearly-finalized schedules circulating on Sina Weibo, 70 “pairs” of trains will run on this line every day (a “pair” counts itself as a train running both ways: that’s a train to Shenzhen and a train back to Guangzhou). However, when the line first opens, all passengers must board and exit at Guangzhou South even if coming from destinations further north.

To make sure enough trains are available, some trains will remain “borrowed” from other railway bureaus. There are plans to transfer 14 CRH3C trainsets from the Beijing and Shanghai Railway Bureaus (together; not 14 per bureau). Of these, 9 trainsets will enter service on the new line. Initially, only 6 trainsets will service the new line, so we will probably only see 38 pairs of trains daily.

In future, though, we might see as many as 20 pairs of trains running on this line from Wuhan straight to Shenzhen North. It’ll get even more exciting once the Beijing-Shijiazhuang and Shijiazhuang-Wuhan segments open. It’ll probably take you just around 8 hours to reach the capital from Shenzhen!

Nonsense. The Wall Street Journal and the Financial Times are the world's most respected and widely read business papers, along with the Bankers' Journal.

WSJ yes. But FT? Its certainly not using tabloid style. Politically and ideologically motivated? Probably yes. But then again so is almost all media regardless of where it is.

So true.
Personally, I try to read media from countries that have no direct interest of misinforming on a particular subject. It's not 100% safe but a good bet nonetheless once you look for more objectivity. Hence, I would typically give preference to Singaporean media on Asian, European and American business/economy news.

Like Singaporean outlets have nothing to gain from giving world economic news from their own perspective

16 25-meter long cars in 5 seconds on second video

(25*16)/5*60*60 = ~290 kmph

Yeah, but WSJ is just a wholly different level. I follow their reads on high speed rail in China and US and FT at least tries to look serious for most part while WSJ doesn't even bother. Anyway, I have learnt one thing which is not to rely on a single news source regardless of its origin or ideology (or lack of it).

Back on topic, the world's fastest HSR test platform became operational at Southwest Jiaotong University. It's capable of testing 600km/h class trainsets under various conditions.

近日,世界最高时速动车组运行试验平台在西南交通大学启用。该试验平台可以在每小时600公里的运行速度下模拟车组在不同线路干扰下运行,全方位实现对动车组运行性能的测试和参数的优化,从而确保列车的安全运行。该平台的启用标志着我国拥有了世界先进的高速列车研究平台。

Good news for Alstom, now they'll have a place to go to the next time they want to shatter a world record, instead of having to rely on a not yet commercially used LGV

Nice.. I am expecting many more records coming for high speed train sets.

To be fair, I doubt wheel-on-rail technologies can get much faster than 600km/h without becoming extremely dangerous, just think of the centripetal forces acting on the wheels!
But still, it will be interesting to see what happens.

There is quite a way to reach 600km/h yet We are just around 300-350 window now. Next big thing may be vacuum tube trains...
