Earlier reports suggested an initial top speed of 300 km/h (186mph) but it appears the Chinese have gone for broke with a 350 km/h (217mph) top speed from the outset.

It's a CRH2,note the LED screen of the train in the video ,it's very narrow,comparing with the CRH3 LED screen below(same with ICE3/Velaro E).

Wow, that is a very cool station and very futuristic indeed

A message to the USDOT, please mirror this design for high speed rail in the U.S. (except language)

are there any pix of the new Gouangzhou Railway station?

Looking at the renderings it should be about as big as Beijing south station.

For my personal taste this is all too gigantic. However I'm happy China invests money into trains and railways.

While I think thats a truly nice design, I have the impression that the station is located pretty much in residential nirvana and additionally isolated by rhe surrounding parking spacees.

Do I err here? Or are there any plans to create an urban neighborhood which comes up to the importance of this place? Or will this station be mostly a hub between means of transportation?

yes, you're correct. However, the area around it is filled with residential highrises, there's not much area to build a new urban neighborhood when there's already ultra dense urbanity surrounding it.

Those French trains are the most unstable in all of 4 types CRH.
The stable one is CRH2 made in Japan.

Although they're Alstom trains they're not French but they're from the Italian part of the company (before it was taken by Alstom over it was called Fiat Ferroviaria).

And in that light your comment makes even more sense, because sadly that's something that's more often the case with Italian trains.
