Hefei to Nanchang trains were supposed to run on Hefu HSR to TonglineNorth(铜陵北) than get on Nanjing(南京)-Anqing(安庆) HSR to Chizhou(池州), then Chizhou-Jiujiang(九江) HSR and Jiujing-Nanchang dedicated passenger line.

Nanjing-Anqing HSR(also called Ning'an HSR) will open by the end of this year, hopefully. But Chizhou-Jiujiang HSR is still at planning stage.

The connecting tracks between Hefu HSR and Ning'an HSR near TonglingNorth on Googlemap, you can see the intention here.

  6. Nanling
  7. Jingxian
  8. Jingde
  9. Jixi
  10. Huangshan

Since Chizou-Jiujiang HSR won't be ready in a few years, I suppose trains crossing between Hefu HSR northbound and Hangchang HSR can still be run, just need to take bit longer in Shangrao station involving going through crossover, rotating all the seats around, etc.

depending on your schedule, your best bid currently is to take G train from GZ to Wuhan (Hankou), then transfer to Beijing - Chongqing/Chengdu G train departing from Hankou station (another station in Wuhan). Hankou - Chongqing is about 7 hours by that train. I believe the GZ - BJ trains have a stop at Hankou

The direct Beijing - Chongqing G train takes a bit more than 12 hours if you start your journey from Beijing

If you start your journey from Shanghai, there are a few Shanghai - Chengdu (through Chongqing) D trains
Thanks. I checked those options. However my journey will have to start from Guangzhou and it has to end in Nanning. The first leg would be ok but the second leg seems not viable with slow trains.

The first high speed train Chongqing-Wuhan, G316, arrives in Wuhan at 13:03 - in Hankou. The first train to travel to Wuhan Station, D2234, arrives in Wuhan only in 15:12.
The last high speed train Wuhan-Nanning, G433, having departed Wuhan at 14:49.

Is there any way to travel Hankou-Wuhan in 1 hour 46 minutes?

does that mean we won't be expecting a China By Train 2015 report?

Yes but perhaps not as big as it could have been. My plan is to get from Guangzhou to Hanoi by train via Nanning. I wanted to detour to Chongqing but since it's not really possible I'll probably stick to Shenzhen-Guangzhou-Nanning.

So how about that crossing Wuhan?

Looks like it might be done by 2 trips on Wuhan Metro.

We know you're cute, but we're more interested in the train behind you.


What's this? Soft sleeper coach? A sleeper EMU with top speed 380km/h?

What is the maximum age (or height?) of males allowed in women-only carriages?

I don't think there's any compartments or coaches designated as women-only, what ticket centre's doing is to put women passengers into same compartment as much as possible when this option's ticked online, it's not guaranteed any woman passenger ticks the option will definately be in a compartment without men.
The only way to ensure that is to buy the whole compartment.

HSR Express Delivery services available in 151 cities
http://finance.ifeng.com/a/20150406/13609852_0.shtml

- China Railway Express (CRE) added more cities to their network of express delivery services
- CRE has price advantage in comparison with other express delivery companies such as Shunfeng
- Though CRE now covers 151 cities, they are not able to offer full range of services in all cities as they are still expanding their local delivery networks, so user experience is not as good as competitors
- Dedicated freight HSR trains are in development. Once launched, it could boost services offered by CRE
