I never knew there was going to be a Beijing-Fuzhou high speed rail line, is this part of that 4+4 plan? It seems like there are many more high speed rail lines than originally planned or maybe I'm just not familiar with the final HSR network plan.
those segments weigh 819-tons,really heavy.so-called 4+4 plan is referring to the main lines,they link megecities,most are capital cities,besides those lines,there are still losts other HSR,but most of those line are mainly 250KM/H line,Hefei to Fuzhou line is a 300km/h with the standard of 350KM/H(7000m turn curve,819-tons girders).

Thirsty for energy, but what for? Who commutes by bicycle anymore? Burn rice, not coal. I'm too tired just now to do the arithmetic, but how many electric scooter charges would it take to drive a CRH3 1km?

1) Scooter´s rubber wheels on asphalt have much bigger rolling friction than steel wheels on steel rails
2) The scooter and human body are not aerodynamically shaped. They generate much more air resistance than the long nose of CRH.

I don't care about the exact figures.

I'm doing a rough comparison to demonstrate that Japan crams approximately 30% more people on an equivalent sized CRH train.

Jeez

That moment when China opens so many HSR lines at once that rail enthusiasts can barely keep track...

Wow. Read this press release from today regarding Sha'anxi rail construction budgets:

24 billion is 1/4 of what was spent on the 859kms of the Datong-Xian PDL. It's possible much or all of this could be HSR.

The speeds of these lines are unknown and may be 'regular rail'. Still, there is so much planned and funded:

-Xi'an to Tongchuan intercity rail
TongChuan is north of Xian ~60kms to 70kms.

-Intercity rail from Xian, southwest to Ankang and Dazhou. 180kms to Ankang, 400kms if all the way to Dazhou. This is close to ChongQing and appears that the previously canceled direct ChongQing to Xian line may have been given new life and funds!

-HuangLing to HanCheng, an EW line to HanCheng near the famous falls at the Yellow River. ~70kms. HuangLing is on the D train line from Xian Bei to YanAn.

-the province also plans to start Xi'an , Yinchuan railway. ~525kms.
YinChuan is the capital of NingXia. This is a line from Xian to NingXia!

-Junger to Shenmu is between Datong and Ordos south of HohHot. ~130kms.
ShenMu is to the SW going towards YuLin

Hi folks,
I am having a project about the HSR in China, and I am looking for (official) statistics for the ridership, distance of both conventional and HSR tracks and passenger-kilometers of the Chinese railway for each year. I tried looking up on the ministry of transport website (using google translate though), to no avail.

Does anybody here know where to find some or all of the above figures? Or other official statistics like financial performance, environmental benefits, operational efficiency compared to conventional trains? I would deeply appreciate any help.

If I am not mistaken:

Train drivers do the same thing in Taiwan. It is based on Japanese security precautions, and the idea is that if a driver has to acknowledge signals in this way, there is less risk of the driver missing/ignoring a signal.
