Looks like it's one of the upgraded lines. The overhead wires haven't been installed yet.

That's cool. I guess this line will use CHR1 trains since the top speed is 200km/h(125mph)?

Seems that it is on an unopened connecting track between Nanjing-Shanghai high speed railway and Nanjing South railway station.

Does the track via Zijinshan Station also go through Xianlin Station on the way to Shanghai?

Both Xianlin and Zijinshan East are considered "reserve" stations, they weren't even suppose to open in the first place, but rather built because it's much easier and cheaper to build now than later when the area is more developed. As fast as the Xianlin University Town and its suburbs grow, in a few years those stations will have enough traffic to actually "open."

That's a smart idea to build the stations beforehand.

Are there any videos out there for the Guangzhen'gang XLR and the Guangzhou to Zhuhai Intercity rail? I'm curious to see what those lines look like.

Usually about .46-.51 CNY per km of 2nd class travel.

291km X .46/.51 = 134/148 CNY one way, 2nd class.

This is my very first post in this forum.
I would like to add some videos, maps, and photos to this thread about High-Speed-Rail in China.

Below you can see a map of rail lines I recently travelled on.
In this post I am going to present a number of experiences on this line by long videos.




Beijing South – Tianjin 300km/h
covered later


Beijing South – Shanghai Hongqiao (Jinghu PDL) 300km/h


This video was taken in July of 2011.



This video was taken in May of 2012.


Shanghai Hongqiao - Hangzhou (Huhang PDL) 300 km/h

covered later


Shanghai South – Hangzhou South (Huhang Railway Line) 140 km/h
covered later


Hangzhou South – Ningbo (Xiaoyong Railway Line) 140 km/h


Video was taken in June of 2012. The old track of the Xiaoyong Line was used because the new Xiaoyong PDL was still under construction.


Ningbo – Wenzhou South (Yongtaiwen PDL) 200 km/h


Video was taken in June of 2012.


Shanghai – Xian (Jinghu and Longhai Railway Line) 140 km/h
covered later


Xian – Longxi (Longhai Railway Line) 140 km/h
covered later


Longxi – Lanzhou (Longhai Line) 140 km/h



Video was taken in May of 2012.
The Xuzhou - Lanzhou High-Speed Railway was still under construction.


Lanzhou – Zhongwei (Baolan Railway Line) 140 km/h
covered later


Zhongwei – Taiyuan (New Railway Line) 160 km/h
covered later


Taiyuan – Shijiazhuang (Shitai New Line) 160 km/h
covered later

That's some great videos! Thanks for sharing.

BTW it's a shame most videos seem to miss the Dashengguan Bridge just before arrival at Nanjing.

There is an extra video covering this bridge, of course.
The video is composed of two recordings (one done on the G1 train in direction Beijing-Shanghai and one done on the D34 Sleeper Train Shanghai-Beijing).

I am new to the website

I know that there has been rumors to increase the 300km/h trains to 350/380 km/h. Is it going to be for all trains or only Beijing-Shanghai and Wuhan-Guangdong? Also, are there any other plans to increase the currently 200km/h trains to 250 km/h? From what I know that after the crash, all 250 km/h trains has been scaled back to 200 km/h.

Not only do your videos show the high-speed rail in China, they also show the beautiful landscape.

Thank you.

How about the vice premier in charge of energy, telecommunications and transportation - since 2008 already, Zhang Dejiang, who already was the boss of Liu Zhijun. What has his attitude been to replacement of Liu Zhijun and to slowdown campaigns (and speedups in Liu Zhijun´s time)?

Zhang Dejiang has since March been replacing Bo Xilai in Chongqing. How does he manage to be Vice Premier while away?

Should China get a new Vice Premier in charge of energy, telecommunications and transportations on grounds that the old one is busy elsewhere?
