per local news (Feb 11 2012), the construction will most likely start by the end of this year and finish by 2014. The direct link, designed with speed of 350km/h and 16 stations, only takes 2 hours 18 minute to complete the trip from Beijing to Shenyang.

The direct Beijing-Chengde-Shenyang line is "suspended pending further study".

HSR now exists on Beijing-Tianjin and Qinhuangdao-Shenyang. Tianjin-Qinhuangdao is under construction, though earlier it was "suspended" for environmental reasons.

No it isn't. The Hangzhou-Ningbo 350km/h high speed will start the trial run in August and open by the end of 2012.

For clarification, what are the best trip times Beijing-Shenyang:
- now (slow speed railway Beijing-Qinhuangdao, then 250 km/h line at 200 km/h Qinhuangdao-Shenyang)?
- after completion of Tianjing-Qinhuangdao high speed railway (350 km/h line at 300 km/h Beijing-Tianjin-Qinhuangdao, then 250 km/h line at 200 km/h Qinhuangdao-Shenyang)?
- after completion of Beijing-Chengde-Shenyang high speed railway (350 km/h line at 300 km/h all the way)?

I believe the last bullet uses the least time:

16 stations: Beijing - Xinghuo - Shunyi West - Huairou South - Miyun East - Xinglong West - Chengde South - Pingquan North - Niulianghe - Kazuo - Chaoyang North - Beipiao East - Fuxin North - Heishan North - Xinmin North - Shenyang
(北京站、星火站、顺义西、怀柔南、密云东、兴隆西、承德南、平泉北、牛河梁、喀左、朝阳北、北票东、阜新北、黑山北、新民北、沈阳站)

Shenyang subway will connect with Xinmin railway station after complpetion.

This reminds of Shanghai Station, which is getting old quick and badly needs a renovation to bring it up to other HSR station standard, it's completely filthy compare to Hongqiao.

Suzhou has 4 HSR stations:

Suzhou Station
Suzhou North Station
Suzhou New Area Station
Suzhou Industrial Park Station

The other HSR stations, such as Kunshan and Wangting East, though located in Greater Suzhou Area, are normally not considered as Suzhou city's railway stations.

Kunshan South, Huaqiao, Yangshen Lake and Weiting West are in Kunshan, right?

Which county level city is Wangting East station located in? Changshu?

In which year shall Suzhou Subway Line 2 be opened as far as Suzhou North station?

Kunshan South, Huaqiao, Yangshen Lake stations are located in Kunshan. Weiting West is located between Kunshen and Suzhou, Wangting East is located between Suzhou and Wuxi. But all above towns are considered within Greater Suzhou area, not other cities like Wuxi and Changshu.

Suzhou subway line 2 will open by June 2014.

Hope that answers all your questions around Suzhou
