Congrats China. I am very jealous of your infrastructure. The U.S. needs to get its crap together and build HSR and subways.

Guangzhou North is temporary until Guangzhou South is ready in about a month or two. Guangzhou South to Shenzhen is under construction. Shenzhen to Hong Kong is to start construction soon according to info I read on another thread. Guangzhou to Zhuhai and Hainan are planned.

The proposed HK section as it is currently planned will be *the* most expensive railway ever built, per mile, as it will be entirely drilled and blasted through bedrock and sediment. The HSR between GZ and Zhuhai (and Macau) will be open before the Guangzhou 2010 Asian Games. A "classic" line is also being built between GZ and Zhuhai, which will be dedicated for freight.

Wuhan HSL-s

There already is a high-speed line in Wuhan. The 520 km distance between Nanjing and Hankou is covered by train D3052/D3053 in 3:00.

If a train travels from Guangzhou to Wuchang in 3:08 and then from Hankou to Nanjing in 3:00, the whole distance Guangzhou-Nanjing can be covered in less than 7 hours. Even with slow rails between Nanjing and Shanghai, it should be under 10 hours Guangzhou to Shanghai.

The fastest existing train between Guangzhou and Shanghai is T100A, which takes 15:49.

Shall any CRH trains travel between Guangzhou and Nanjing via Wuhan?

There are direct trains from Hankou to Shanghai, no need to transfer at Nanjing. The train D3016 covers Hankou-Shanghai section in 04h57m. Since it has to use slow Beijing-Guangzhou Railway to reach Hankou Station. I guess as Wuhan Railway Station opened later this month, the train will stop at Wuhan Station instead of Hankou, hence cut the travel time by ~20 minutes. A train from Guangzhou South to Shanghai could be covered under 8 hours.

Red: D3016's route to Hankou, use slow railway
Blue: D3016's route to Wuhan, use fast railway

Sleeper stock

Does CRH have suitable high-speed sleeping cars to travel between Guangzhou and Shanghai?

I recall from a news report in HK a few days ago, they talked about how air fares have started dropping. I don't specifically recall whether it said air fares have dropped by 1/4 or to 1/4 of the previous price.

Are there any plans for a convenient and fast rail connection between Wuchang and Tianhe? With just 1:05 trip time from Changsha to Wuchang, it would be worthwhile to fly out of Wuhan airport... provided this does not require several changes of train and slow thrip through suburbs of Wuhan.

Wuhan is building an express regional rail system to connect the city and Xianning, Huangshi, Huangzhou, and Xiaogan. The last one will pass through the airport, but it looks like it will connect with the "classic" rail system at Wuchang rather than the high speed system.

But I'm not sure of the rationale of taking the train from Changsha to Wuhan airport and flying from there. Neither Changsha nor Wuhan will become global aviation hubs like PVG, HKG, PEK, or ICN, and both airports serve similar destinations.

The 2008 passenger load of Wuhan seems to have been bigger than Changsha, slightly.

But combining the two, the sum would be behind only Shenzhen, Shanghai, Guangzhou and Beijing, ahead of all other airports such as Chengdu.

I am liking them all, the architecture of some implies a more historic style.
