The number 2294km is for the old line. The actual distance for the HSR is slightly shorter,
somewhere between 2000km-2100km, which is still magnificent.

New South Manchuria Railway

Old South Manchuria Railway is 946 km Dalian-Harbin. It also continues from Dalian to Lüshun. The distance is 397 km Dalian-Shenyang and 700 km Dalian-Changchun.

South Manchuria Railway famously operated Asia Express trains - with streamlined locomotives between Dalian and Changchun, reaching 134 km/h top speed.

What was the total trip time of Asia Express?

The fastest train Dalian-Changchun now is T5307, covering 700 km in 7:59. The fastest train Dalian-Harbin is T129, covering 946 km in 9:17.

The length of New South Manchuria Railway is said to be 904 km.

What shall be the best travel time Dalian-Harbin this Saturday?

Then there is the Bohai Train Ferry continuing from Lüshun to Yantai in the Shandong province. A Bohai HSR bridge/tunnel would be a megaproject that probably wouldn't make economic sense, but would cut down drastically the time from Shenyang to Qingdao (or possibly Qingdao-Seoul, if North Korea one day became on line).

Would Qingdao-Rongcheng high speed railway serve Yantai?

How is the progress of Qingdao-Rongcheng high speed railway?

It does, the Q-R ICL has four terminal stations including branch lines, Yantai is on one of the branch lines.

The line is progressing nicely and thanks to the increase in investment will start trial runs by the end of next year.

This line is sometimes called an intercity line and sometimes that moniker is not used. Will long-distance trains - say, Beijing–Hangzhou – run on this line?

Will this line stop at Nanjing South station or Nanjing Station? What was the time between Hangzhou and Nanjing on conventional lines? Also did they run CRH trains on conventional lines like they did on the old Shanghai-Nanjing line?

According to diagrams it's from Nanjing South to Hangzhou East. Since there's no conventional railway line between these two cities, all high speed and conventional trains between them go through Shanghai. MoR wants to get rid of as many passenger trains from conventional lines as possible, though this is prevented by political demands.

Considering the operation starts in less than two days - is the schedule known?

There was no direct passenger train service between Nanjing and Hangzhou.

A railway between Nanjing and Hangzhou also goes through Xuancheng.

Hi Guys!

Could someone help a little Bunny out?

I'll be in HKG between 22.05.2013-30.05.2013. By that time what kind of train options will I have to get to Shanghai? I don't want to fly since I'd like to use the famous chinese HSR network. So I prefer CRH-s. Overnight is also good.

There is no easy way to do this, right now the best route is travel from Shenzhen to Wuhan first, then ride from Wuhan to Shanghai.
