Well, for whatever reason there appear to already be no "stops all stations" trains on the coastal route. It's even worse, there are pairs of stations that have no direct train, it is necessary to go part way, get off, and continue to destination on another train. It may even be quicker to go past the intended stop, and get a train back from a more distant changing place. The first randomish pair I selected, Yandangshan - Hanjiang, is in this category.

It's just my ignorant bystander guess that the coastal route, built to 200-250km/hr standards, with closer together stations, will not be operated with high speed express as a priority, like the 350km/hr lines. Most web train searches for Hangzhou-Xiamen will also offer you K1209

Compare Tokaido Shinkansen, built to 270 km/h standards, with closer together stations. In 515 km Tokyo-Shin-Osaka, there are 15 intermediate stations, of which in the 342 km Tokyo-Nagoya there are 11. Well, there is an all-stop Kodama train to Shin-Osaka each hour, taking 3:54, of which 2:48 to Nagoya, and another all-stop Kodama terminating at Nagoya in 2:48 as well. Each such Kodama train to Shin-Osaka is passed by 8 Nozomi expresses and 2 Hikaris.

Xiamen-Shenzhen testing run is scheduled in October so I guess the opening date is in December this year.

Well, slower trains may actully ''burn" more electricity, due to frequent stopping and starting.

Not if it has regenerative braking. It converts kinetic energy back to electric using motors as generators and returns it back to the grid. CRH380A returns up to 95% of the energy.

Yingkou-Panjin HSR opens

Yingkou-Panjin HSR, located in Liaoning Province, connects Harbin-Dalian HSR and Tianjin-Shenyang rail, 90km, design speed of 350kmph.

Construction: May 31 2009 ~ September 12 2013

The opening will cut the travel time between Beijing and Dalian from 7 hours 39 minites to 6 hours 4 minutes (don't have to pass Shenyang).

Xian-Datong infrastructure installation continues. Tensioning of the caternaries is progressing with the removal and relocation of tensioning weights. Many poles, insulators, wires, guys, and supports on many lengthy stretches of the line.

Projected test runs are to commence ~January of 2014.

Beijing-Dalian geography seems to be uniquely unfavourable for train. It's only 1 h hop over the water...

Once the Beijing-Shenyang is finished and the whole trip can be done at 300 km/h, it shouldn't be too bad.

Is that D55 or G55? I've never seen a CRH5 run a G route. Just curious

Is China building a HSR between Harbin and Mudanjiang?

HSR to Hunchun is under construction. I was travelling from Haishenwei and Shuangchengzi to Hunchun and Yanji last month, many sections has already completed or near complete seen from the nearby expressway.

Are there any info on it? Cause, local people told me before, that province wants to build only traditional railway. & there were no even passenger trains to Funchun. & there is good idea via Girin province, not via Haklonggong.
