There has been notable lack of updates this year.

I see that although Chongqing-Lichuan high speed railway was opened last year, there are NO D trains between Chongqing and Yichang. While the Wanzhou-Yichang railway is not a HSR and is limited to slow speed, so is Beijing-Qinhuangdao... and the fact that only T and K trains run between Chongqing and Yichang means that they do not use the high speed section Chongqing-Lichuan.

What is supposed to be the next high speed railway to open in China?

Does China have any new trains ready to be tested on empty Changsha-Nanchang high speed railway before it becomes occupied with scheduled service?

Any news on the exact opening date of Shenzhen's Futian HSR terminus?
I live in Hong Kong and this station would be very useful for me to get onto the HSR system in China before waiting another 2 years until the system extends into West Kowloon (in Hong Kong).

There are D trains between Chongqing and Lichuan, the problem is that no D train between Lichuan and Yichang. The original design is that between Yichang and Lichuan Liangwu section the speed should reach 200km/h, and between Liangwu and Wanzhou the speed is 160km/h, but due to the extreme geological condition the speed was reduced to 160/120km/h. I believe in the future when technologies permit and demand strong enough the line will be upgraded to its 200km/h full potential, thus facilitate D trains, maybe even bringing back Chengdu-Shanghai sleeper EMUs.

So when is the entire Hangzhou to Changsha 350km/h line opening? Wikipedia gives the date as 31-03-2014 (sourced from People's Daily article in April 2013).

And when is Changsha to Kunming opening?

flankerjun, with all due respect, you might want to read Flickr posting rules. Not sure if you are aware of that but Flickr has already threatened SSC to switch off hotlinking (and done so for a short period of time). Only due to some kind requests from SSC admins it was restored. That was because of people who ignored Flickr's posting rules here on SSC (without using code provided by Flickr which includes a link to the source photo). If we keep doing that we might get it switched off again and a lot of photo content posted on SSC might be lost forever.

Express train Beijing-Guangzhou has been restored! (G79).
Now there is a total of 5 G trains Beijing-Guangzhou. And G79 goes all the way to Longhua.

Could they not just run D trains but slow down in that section of track?

I have been on G trains to ZhengZhou that were at 80km/hour for short sections.

I would not mind many D trains schedule there that had to slow for a stretch.

How is the progress of Nanjing-Anqing high speed railway, and when is it ready to open for scheduled service?

Do not rely on Wikipedia. The information are stone-age old.
We might see an opening on December 30, 2014.

In recent government meetings raising HSR speed to 350kmph proposal is submitted. I'd like to see how it goes.

That would be a sick good news if it gets restored.

Hopefully this will be approved, would be awesome news if trains start running at 350km/h again.

True, Wikipedia doesn't get updated well enough for topics we see on this forum.

It's still a pretty good source. The map is updated regularly and consistently, distances seem to be correct (are there any other sources with correct distances?) and completion schedules are mostly more or less accurate (at least if we look at the year).
