Any news on a temporary G/D train from Beijing to Harbin that will take advantage of this new bit of 350 km/h track?

And when will the 350 km/h track between Beijing and Shenyang open to form a full high speed Beijing-Harbin route?

Why is there so much open asphalt around Harbin West? Can't that land be put to better use?

Just google "Chinese new year crowd" for images, I believe you'll grasp the rationale.

So once e-ticketing is available system-wide, the open space will be developed?

I don't think so, the open space is crowded normally as it functions as a meeting and gathering place, annd people waiting for the train for a couple of hours.

The color is still awesome. It's a great looking design, the Chinese don't skimp no design when it comes to their major railway stations. I too was wondering about the vast concrete area around the station but maybe they could use the space for something useful.

Some photos of Harbin West show some sort of bowl-like feature with an unknown purpose

There are two main entrances. that is why it looks like there are two versions

The one with the "bowl" is south-east entrance.

A lovely rail-port

It's a sunken square, connected with station underground, used for gathering, subway, taxis.

Nice looking station as well.

Is the Harbin West Railway Station the terminus for the HSR line? It looks like trains still pass through to the north, tracks seem to continue through the station instead of stop at the station. Where does the HSR line end?

as far as HSR line is concerned, Harbin West is the northern most HSR station in China (Sanya is the southern most station).

Harbin West is not the northern most HSR station in China,
there is another HSL link Harbin ~ Daqing~Qiqihaer(哈大齐高铁)
so Qiqihaer south railway station is the northern most HSR station

No, it's just line 1 that's opening this year.

I didn't know there was a "Harbin South" station.


Aside from the recent topics, are all D trains CRH trains and to CRH trains still run on the old railways? For example Shanghai to Nanjing has the old and the high speed line. In a video I saw they were running CRH2 trains on the old line parallel to the high speed line which was still under construction.

Trains like D25, Beijing-Harbin, do run on old railways Beijing-Qinhuangdao and Shenyang-Harbin. Are they CRH trains?
