Looks like a cross between the Siemens and the Kawasaki!

That's sleek looking. I am a little bit disappointed that they didn't go with CIT 500 nose but like the fact that the curve continues for almost the whole length of the car. It looks like it was really formed by air.

That frame it doesn't look all that different from the current CRH380A.

I wouldn't want to see a CIT500 nose on a non-CIT500/CRH500 train. Like putting a Mercedes body/shell on a Hyundai.

This is the new CRH380A:

Looks like it will also have side headlight style Shinkansen E6:


But what strikes me is the space above the cab. The previous CRH380A already have a cabin type, say, "cockpit hunting" (high on the fuselage, as the Shinkansen 500), and do not think it's headlights ... as there is a lookout for the passage
One would think that the origin of this train was the Kawasaki E2.


Fortunately (for me) it does not resemble the prototype CRH500 you have, remember, two different booths.
The CRH380A type, with cab type "cockpit fighter":


And the type "flamingo´s beak":


In both cases the cabin seems to be somewhat higher than in the CRH380A. This is the cabin in the CRH380A:

I don't think so. The curve on top is much more pronounced and goes way more backward.

Windows are all different, too.

It looks a completely new design.

Guys, I need some info on Chongqing–Lanzhou High-Speed Railway. Is it ready yet?
It has been under construction for a few years now, and wikipedia says it should be completed by 2015.

Wow, there are some high speed railways already running that I didn't even know about like the Wuhan-Shiyan high speed railway. Is this supposed to be extended to Xi'an? I can't seem to find much info on this line doing a search on Google.

Bridge

I love the shape of the bridge pylons. Pleasing to the eye in a way with the gentle curves.

But this map is missing the islands in the south, between Vietnam and the Philippines. Usually the official railway maps have an inset for these islands. Interestingly enough without showing the actual railways in this inset, not even those on Haikou Island etc.

Edit: I see that the Guilin - Guangzhou line is now also in service. It must surely give Guilin an impulse, now that it is only 3 hours from the PRD instead of 12 hours. The latter night train is still in service (it used to be the only connection per day) but will it have a long 'life expectancy' still?
