News in late Sept says opening date is mid Oct, which means it's either delayed or the news wasn't accurate, hopefully we'll hear the good news this coming week.

That last description of Urumqi new station dates from May 2013. Has anybody seen the outside of the new Urumqi station recently - does it look as if it could be opened soon?

Actually never believe what the media said,they know nothing,some journalists think once they complete the construction,you can take the train.the Urumqi station is still in construction,how could it be opened in Otc.

It will happen, half a year one way or another makes no difference in the grand scheme of things.

How do the railways go in Urumqi?

Could high speed trains go into some old railway station temporarily while a new station is under construction, or is this technically impossible?

Does anyone know if it's allowed to drink beer on the D and G trains?

why not? Cold beer is sold on the train. That's what I did every time on the train, taking some beer and then sleep.

Good. I'll spend a good amount of time on the train (SZ-SH takes 12 hours!) so it would be nearly impossible to survive without beer for so long.

I wasn't sure because different countries and different transport services might have different policies. But it's good to know beer is OK. I hope I will still be in shape to take photos

In other words, you´d die of hangover in 12 hours?

Also, are there any updates as to Urumqi-Hami high speed railway? There are 4 days left of October.

And does anyone know which railway lines would serve Hefei South station?

Yes, but no service exists. Nanchang-Hangzhou has not been opened.

Why? I don't care about faster route. I care about evaluating service level, comfort and overall experience on Chinese D and G trains.

the coast line has lots of tunnels,and most of the train is crh1,the crh1 is very terrible when go through tunnels,and for comfort it is far behind crh380 series.the route i recomind to you will open in Dec,and the crh380 will much better.

Although tunnels are a huge feat of engineering and make smooth travel in difficult terrain possible, I find them really boring once you're inside them on a train since you don't get to see anything. Long time in tunnels is where I usually just fall asleep.

Boring is one thing, another is tunnel compression that cause my ear to pop.
