Works for me. Probably a missing plug in.

Hmmm....trying again doesn't work. I thought it was asking for me to install something. I wish I could read the characters.


Edit: It looks like the video might be blocked on the network at my workplace. Thanks guys! I'll just have to watch these at home.

That is a nice video of the 380A. On my recent trip to China I had to ride it on several occasions between Shanghai and Nanjing, I'm surprised by how large the overhead "bin" is. I was able to put one of my larger luggage on it without any problem, that bag would require checking on an airliner.

Well, if the distance is below 1000km, high speed rail is clear winner. Comfortable, really fast, energy efficient... I wouldn't even consider any other mode of travel.

Up to a 4-5 hour train trip i would prefer the train over flying, because it is less of a hassle and less of an obstruction of activities. Getting on the train takes about 10 minutes and then i can get back to work.

Including Beijing-Moscow via Manzhouli, which is 143 hours.

What are the CRH sleeper trains doing currently?

You forgot the opposite direction, Moscow to Beijing via Manzhouli, 145.85 hours.

I am looking forward to board this train in 2012 on January 28 at 23:55, arrive Beijing on February 4 at 05:46.

Sorry for OT: But I hope we will see from this trip also such a nice report as from your last trips?

On topic: What will be the next high-speed line put into operation? Since the train crash it has really slowed down extremely

Oh yeah, I formulated my question wrong... I meant "when"... And what will follow after that line?

Harbian-Dalian still planned for July 2011? Hopefully yes, because if everything works, then I will be there (in Harbin) and would be able to use that line .

It was really quiet for a while, but since November 30 there have been reports of the line opening "in December", "December 8", "by Spring Festival" or "December 28". Here's the most recent one:
What's on Shenzhen: Guangzhou-Shenzhen high-speed rail to start operation on Dec 28

How about Hefei-Bengbu, Hangzhou-Ningbo and Nanjing-Hangzhou lines? I haven't heard anything about those ones in a while.
