actually the 3 characters on the front were added to the trains after the letter CRH effectively spelled out acronyms that named the trains "Shame".

however unforunate it is, the acronyms for the new characters added ended up pronouncing "Blood Drinking".

Chinese is a great language.

The Japanese government gave 60%+ or more of 30 billion dollars, 18 billion dollars, for nothing to CINA. It will become huge if other assistance is included. Chinese people should kneel down and be thankful to Japanese people. A technical outflow and loss of intellectual property rights reach annual 90 billion, and employment of Japanese people is taken.

Chi Ru Hao/耻辱号/恥辱號
The first two characters means shame or humiliation. The last is usually added when you give a ship, train or plane a name.

and the three characters on the trains now 和谐号 (he xie hao),short forms as HXH, is very closely related in pronouncation to 喝血号 (he xie hao). =-)

He said Chinese should kneel and thank Japan.

Japan should kneel and thank the Western world for all those technologies that they gave to Japan's industrialization.

Chinese railways paid for the trains and tech transfer; they didn't steal it. The only thing they did not do is mention the Japanese origin on the "official" news channel. But everyone knows already because of the online discussion forums. This is just the Chinese govt. being naive.

going off topic for a bit.

That is not entirely true. Using the Chinese navy as an example. Did you the first number in the three digit ship numbering system indicates the class of the ship and the second number indicates the fleet that it belongs to?

If you did, many other people sure did not. But I, along with every other military forumers knows this.

I guess my point is that you know the fact that it's a Japanese train because you're on a railway forum, and you also have knowladge regarding the current Japanese train designs. However, the majority of the Chinese public are not aware of the fact that the CRH2 looks identical to the Japanese E2.

it doesn't really matter if all of us knew that the train was from Japan, as long as the majority of the Chinese population doesn't think so.

and plus, the trains are actually assembled in China with majority of the components locally made. so they arn't actually lieing after all.

No, he is saying China should apologize to Japan for the failed invasion of Japan under Mongol army during 14th century.
Like I said, if Chinese labourer didn't build faulty ships intentionally, Japan would have been conquered by Mongols.
some people's idiocy are beyond my belief.

This is just getting old, and more and more rediculous. It's one thing complaining about events from 60 years ago but no one cares what happened 600 years ago!!!

CRH trains should have the same livery, since right now they are trying to promote this brand, but they should have tried something more lively, and esp get rid of that ugly font.
The guy that chose that font should be executed by the firing squad.

Who is he? A hermit engineer in his 80s?

Just ignore the Japs

Most of them have low-self esteem.

Great quotes..

"In the '80s, when Japan was riding the crest of the wave, there was a great deal of hubris and sense of superiority,"

"Forecasts were that the Japanese economy would take over the US by around about now ... Then the bubble burst and the last dozen or so years have seen ... the collapse of the economy, the decline of many hitherto global champion firms ... the unexpected and spectacular rise of China, shunting Japan to the sidelines, [and] the total lack of support for Tokyo's bid for a permanent seat at the UN Security Council."

"Japanese nationalism is defensive and reflecting a growing sense of uncertainty, insecurity and inferiority,"
---Jean-Pierre Lehmann

Beijing Airport Express Railway

Beijing Capital International Airport Link's ART MK II Vehicles Debut in Changchun





On Sep. 7, the first train, which comprises 4 ART (Advanced Rapid Transit) MK II vehicles, that is to be used for Beijing Capital International Airport Link connecting Dongzhimen Station to the Beijing Capital International Airport using Bombardier's ART technology made its debut in Changchun.

In March 2006, Bombardier received an order from Changchun Railway Vehicles (CRC) as part of a contract awarded to CRC by the Beijing Dongzhimen Airport Express Rail Co. Ltd. for the supply of 40 ART MK II vehicles for the Beijing Capital International Airport Link.

It is known that Bombardier participates in project management and is responsible for vehicle systems engineering and integration, design and manufacture of the bogies as well as the propulsion and braking systems while Changchun Railway Vehicles (CRC) manufactures the 40 ART MK II vehicles.

Once fully operational, the airport link will serve four different stations: Dongzhimen, Sanyuanqiao, Beijing Capital International Airport's Terminal 2 and Terminal 3. Passengers will be able to interchange trains conveniently at the Dongzhimen and Sanyuanqiao Stations, where connections to the 2008 Olympic village will be available.

In addition, a special lounge at the Dongzhimen Station will allow passengers to initiate flight-boarding procedures before arriving at the airport as well.
