Sometimes I wish China could do away with the black strip along the window line. I think they'd look better without it. But then again, if they removed it, it'd look too much like the Japanese ones.

The black line is the rail equivalent of sports cars being painted 'go faster red'

CRH2 and CRH5 don't have the black strip, but I think they look kinda boring.

In an artist' s hands these trains may look great. I think they should run a competition for these trains' paint job. Not for all trains but for some of them on select routes for promotion

Interestingly enough there's something I really love about the CRH5. Is the CRH6 already in service or is it just doing test runs from Guangzhou South Railway Station?

I'm fairly certain it's not in commercial service.

Thanks hmmwv. I assume this CRH6 will do runs between Guangzhou and Zhuhai? I have a feeling they will keep CRH1's for the Guangzhou to Shenzhen (Guanzhen Railway).

Yes Guangzhou-Zhuhai Intercity is suppose to be CRH6's maiden line.

What other lines will use the CRH6 other than the PRD intercity network? Shanghai's Jinshan? Chendu's Chengdu–Dujiangyan? Changchun–Jilin?

So CRH6 is a fully domestic product? No foreign licenses?

Hmm, look at this (700 series Hikari Railstar, in use since 2000):

They are nice. Gloved attendants. 2nd class seats are comfortable but a bit crowded and has families on event trips. It's a big deal. Finding room for your luggage may be an issue in 2nd class, but only sometimes. Other classes this is not an issue.

Business/1st class has very spacious seats, much like business class in an airplane. It's quiet seasoned travelers sleeping in those classes. Leg room to cross your legs and stretch out, wide seats.

Principle/Special class is the top and only on a few trains on some lines. Single Seat Pods that recline to full flat beds, tv screen at the seat, free meal included.

Sound reduction, wind and rail noise is still good after 3+ years of the older trainsets. They don't pitch from side to side, the ride is smooth and quiet, and they leave on time and arrive a minute or two early.

I see that a few D trains which travel at a high speed in daytime nevertheless have soft sleepers. Notably the trains D315, Beijing-Shanghai, and D365, Beijing-Shanghai-Fuzhou.

What CRH trainsets have sleeper cabins?

How is the food on CRH trains? I've only been on a CRH1 from Guangzhou East to Shenzhen in 2010 but did not visit a dining car.

From what I've experienced, the food is better than airline meals, but average. The price is exorbitant and is about 3 to 4 times what you'd expect at a hole-in-the-wall place in Beijing or Shanghai.

Are the hole-in-the wall places referring to the places somewhere in the city, or hole-in-the-wall places within the buildings of high speed railway stations?

Do any amenities whatsoever exist on the platform side of ticket and security checks in high speed railway stations?
