I think it's a line of ballastless track with 350km/h designed speed and 250km/h commercial speed.

Yes, I know it is out of date. But I do not know any better overview either.

So Hangzhou-Kunming opens in at least 3 sections. Middle, Nanchang-Changsha in September 2014, then Hangzhou-Nanchang in December 2014, then Changsha-Guiyang-Kunming some time or several times after 2014?

Changsha to Kunming will open in 2015 even 2016,digging tunnels which are more than 20km in west china is not a joke. Guizhou Yunan and other provinces in South-west china are the most Inaccessible,Karst is horrible for construction.

The Three Gorges are no joke either. Yichang-Lichuan is not served by any D trains - one T and the rest K.
What kind of trains can get though the Chongqing-Lichuan "high" speed railway when it opens the next month?

There will be D,T and K trains,but D trains only for short distance,long distance such as shanghai to chengdu will open after lunar new year,Because Yichang TO Wanzhou line,part of shanghai to Chengdu,the signal system is for the normal trains,not the high speed trains,Changing signal is under construction.this work will complete after the lunar new year.

The travel time from Hangzhou to Shenyang will cut to about 9.5 hours from 28 hours previously by the end of this year.

I think there may be.NOW Z124/Z121 from chengdu to shanghai may change the route to this line,because it is shorter.
