Harbin-Shenyang-Dalian schedule

There are 20 days left on March 2013.

What shall the schedule of Harbin-Shenyang-Dalian high speed rail be like in this spring?

Are there any plans to change its top speed from the current 200 km/h?

Lanxin is well on its way to open in 2014, which is a fairly rigid target. Basic infrastructure construction should be concluded at the end of this year, which is good because there will be less chance for its speed to be downgraded now.

Beijing-Shengyang is rumored to have started construction a few months ago, public opposition by several apartment complexes in Beijing has yet to be resolved, opening is set in 2017-18.

Shanghai-Kunming's Hangzhou-Changsha section should start track laying at the end of this year and opening in 2014. Changsha-Kunming section will open sometime in 2015.

^ hmm .. so the entire Nanjing - Hangzhou - Ningbo section is under testing at the same time? Someone asked about my earlier post on Huzhou test photos, which the article referred to as testing for Hangzhou - Ningbo only.

Huzhou got to be a typo or misuse of photo, it's not on the Hangzhou-Ningbo line.

I asked about it. Pictures showed the line between Hangzhou and Ningbo but said picture was taking in Huzhou which is not between Hangzhou and Ningbo but between Nanjing-Hangzhou.

I didn't know there was an existing rail line between Hangzhou and Ningbo. It surprised me that there wasn't a direct Nanjing-Hangzhou railway before this brand new line was built.

Did CRH trains run on this parallel line before the 350km/h line was opened? I ask because before the 350km/h Nanjing-Shanghai railway was opened CRH trains ran on the old line...not sure if they do anymore.

Edit:

It looks like Wikipedia answered my question. Will CRH services stop when the new line is open?

It looks like trains are the future in China, in the long run it does make perfect sense, one day fuel price will skyrocket, we have to look for alternatives now, before we come close to that day.

Can anyone find English language version of this documentary? This is probably the most comprehensive documentary on Chinese HSR I have seen so far, and completely politics free! It covers development of CHR380 and construction of the Beijing-Shanghai HSR line.

It supposed to be from the Man Made Marvel series from Discovery channel.

Yes, there are 4 such trains daily. They are all G trains, travelling at 200 km/h on the 250 km/h railway Qingdao-Jinan, then at 300 km/h on the 380 km/h railway Jinan-Shanghai. Trip time is between 6:32 (G228) and 6:46 (G232).

The 4 daily trains Shanghai-Qingdao all start at Shanghai Hongqiao, where also all 4 daily trains Qingdao-Shanghai end. While slow speed railways exist all the way between Shanghai and Qingdao, no direct trains run there.

No direct high-speed or low speed? So, plain is better, if 6 & a half hours on route by train?
Is there Web Site of high speed train timetable official (even in Mandarin)?

No direct low speed trains. All 4 direct trains are high speed.

Faster, yes. Better, depends on what the actual schedules and prices of planes are.
G train tickets are 518 yuan in second class, 818 in first.

There certainly is an official website in Mandarin.

There are also unofficial English websites. A fairly good one is this:
