The D trains D123 and D125 take the same time - 5:32 - as T97. Are T trains suited for 250 km/h? Or does this indicate that Beijing-Zhengzhou, including D trains on it, is currently only 200 km/h or 160 km/h?

How are the tests of Wuhan-Shijiazhuang progressing? When in December shall it open?

How is the progress of Bengbu-Hefei high speed railway?

The old CRH trains will stay for now. The whole idea of the new HSR new lines is for capacity increase and providing more options to passengers (it's confirmed there's one pair of 200km/h CRH schedule on the new line). The old CRH schedule may be adjusted though to better fit the new requirement.
I see, it's not just replacement but capacity increase, very good. I didn't realize this would be called Zhengzhou East since I thought it would be the only train station for Zhengzhou. It's a very beautiful station. In one of the videos I posted above it was surprising to see CRH trains on the old railway line.

...also thanks for the pictures!

Xi'an North to Shenzhen North

I was on the first train from Xi'an North to Shenzhen North today. The trip was slightly more than 2000 km, and the it took 9 hours, 20 minutes, Shenzhen North arrival 5 minutes late. Top speed was 312 km/h. Zhengzhou–Wuhan section 14:00–16:00 in the graph, ignore those interrupts and spikes, tunnels block GPS signal.

Not true. Mr. Sheng Gaozu has slowed the section down to some 155 km/h.

Interesting graph yaohua2000, did you stay on one train for the whole trip? I guess it made a stop in Zhengzhou.

Yes. It made 13 stops, include the origin and terminal stops.

What about the entire Beijing-Shenzhen line? If I got it right, it should be operational by the end of 2012? Is it going to be 350km/h through the entire route? And finally, are there going to be direct Beijing-Shenzhen trains from the opening time? I suppose that would require some serious schedule adjustments for other stretches (like Guangzhou-Wuhan).

This is just outstanding work. A million thanks!

Do you recall time from Shenzhen North to the border via subway, if that is where you traveled after the CRH? It is about 20 minutes?

I do not know. The Xian and Zhengzhou routes take one direct per day, but you can take any train to Guangzhou South and walk to the Shenzhen shuttle as they leave every 30 or 45 minutes.

Zhengzhou East looks smaller than I expected.

Zhengzhou East looks really nice. China does put a lot of effort in designing their new railway stations.
