A very rough translation. This is very poorly written and constructed, like most Chinese articles. Here it is:

Sleeper high speed trains from Guangzhou to Beijing and Shanghai available for sale today, 30 days advance booking.

The sleeper cabin has:
- Bed 10cm wider than normal train beds.
- Controllable air conditioner
- Individual LED TV
- Electric sockets (220V)
- Free dinner
- Hot water
- Reading light
- Hanger
- Slippers
- Earphones

However, there will be no WIFI, no twins room, nor private toilets.
From 1st Jan 2015 to 15th Mar, 8 night trains will be added between BJ-GZ/SZ, SH-GZ/SZ everyday . Max 30 days booking in advance.

Mon-Thur, Sat: Normal price
Fri, Sun: Weekend price
Holidays: Holidays price

BJ-GZ: 1780 upper deck, 2000
lower
BJ-SH: 1200, 1350
BJ-SZ: 1990, 2200
(I think this is the holidays price, not explicitly explained in context)

A car has 10 rooms, separated by sliding doors with a corridor in the middle. Each room hosts 4 people. The 8th car is the dining car, operating 24 hrs and provides free dinner, however, mainly serves cold food.

Attendants patrol the corridor
every 15 minutes throughout the night.

From 2nd Jan 2015, 8 pairs of sleeper trains will be added between Guangzhou S and Nanning E, Guilin N; Shenzhen N and Xiamen N, Jiuquan. But not high class soft sleeper.

Timetable for SZ-SH&BJ
(Train no.; Departure; Destination; Departure Time; Arrival Time)
D921 BJW-GZS 2000 0705
D922 GZS-BJW 2000 0708
D923 BJW-GZS 2005 0710
D924 GZS-BJW 2005 0713
D931/4 SHHQ-GZS 1956 0708
D933/2 GZS-SHHQ 1923 726
D935/8 SHHQ-GZS 2002 0718

Short snippet on last night's CCTV13 noting the opening December 20 of the ChengMianLe line, an awkward construction for the line from Leshan thru Chengdu East to Mianyang. Most trains start/finish at Chengdu East but a couple each day do the full length Emeishan - Jiangyou. Tickets went on sale Friday at Chengdu (central, now unofficially called north) for all C trains on this line. TV stated running speed is 200km/hr.

For some reason I expected the upper bunk to be more preferable. Interesting to see that the lower bunk costs a little more. I haven't been on one of these trains so maybe I'll notice the reason for the price difference when I finally ride on one.

Is this part of the Guangzhou-Chengdu line? Because I thought that would be built at 380 km/h standard.

you are right,It is part of Chengdu-Guangzhou line,it is a typical standard in West China,with 300 or 350 standard but the top speed of 250.
Chengdu-Guiyang line has a radius of 7000m,Guiyang-guangzhou line is 5500m.

Guiyang-Guangzhou is a line with infrastructure designed to be 300km/h ready, but right now both designed and operational speed are 250km/h. Upgrade to 300km/h is very easy though.

Is commercial service going to be 250km/h or 200km/h?

After all this time on the forum I'm still royally confused about the speed of D trains...200 or 250km/h?

All G trains have an official limit of 300km/h so that's easier to remember.
