Both of those CRH350 trains look awesome and the interiors look much better than current trains. They must have gotten an new interior designer? The brown and tan colors look cozy compared to the cold blue colors in the current interiors.

I love how China standardizes HSR trains with white but are they moving away from the blue cheatline and incorporating new colors? I think it's cool to have standard colors for CRH trains so when you see a white train you know it's high speed at a glance.

The only other train I've noticed to move away from the blue cheatline is one of the CRH6 trains. Anyone know what the status of the CRH6 trains are? I haven't seen any new pictures or of where they'll be running. I just love the variety of high speed trains China has. So glad they didn't decide to stick with one type.

Hopefully most techs and designs used in these prototypes will be incorporated into the production version.

CRH6A(200km/h version) has finished 300,000km operational evaluation and successfully got the certificate, will be put into service first in the pearl river delta area in a couple months' time.

CRH6F(160km/h version) is still going through this evaluation.

Dongguan-Huizhou intercity, not sure when now, there seems to be a dispute with the local environment agency.

Other lines in the area have also been mentioned to be the potential users, like under construction Foshan-Zhaoqing intercity(2017?) and existing Guangzhou-Zhuhai intercity.

Apologies for being pedantic, but it looks to me like those window blinds cannot be pulled down the whole way. Am I correct?

But hey that is one beautiful train

If they can be pulled all the way down in second class, don't think there should be a problem in VIP class

The interior design, especially the upholstery ( in the last pic : dark blue),
still needs to be improved. The last one looks so boring and depressing.

I would rather choose some brighter colors for the uphosltery than dark blue

I got a question here. How many drivers do they have on a single bullet train? One or two? I am wondering what if the driver needs to use toilet or get sick suddenly during the trip.

By the end of this year hopefully, this line has drawn some interest since it will be the first line operating CRH6A commercially and the first line adopting CTCS2 + ATO signalling system.

Hefei-Fuzhou high speed railway seems to have opened.
There seem to be 5 daily G trains Beijing-Fuzhou via Hefei, 1 of which, G27, is express taking 7:44 with 7 stops. The other 4 make 16 to 21 stops and take 8:52 to 9:32.
Ticket price second class 719 yuan, first class 1210 yuan 5 jiao, VIP seat 1368 yuan 5 jiao, business class 2270 yuan.
G55 also still runs via Nanjing and Hangzhou, taking 10:50.

I like brighter color too but it's simply not practical here, it'll get dirty easily and require constant replacement, not something feasible considering how many trains are running and how many people are riding.

On a side note, all those discussion about the new trainset ideally should be in the Chinese HSR Trainset thread.

World Speed Survey 2015: China remains the pacesetter

This year, the results show a general coalescence where frequency is the main driver of performance on many routes, with maximum speeds reaching something of a plateau at or slightly above 300 km/h. Our survey finds that the ‘blue riband’ award for the world’s fastest point-to-point rail journey is taken by China Railways Corp’s G66/79, which sprint between Shijiazhuang and Zhengzhou Dong in 81 min at an average speed of 283·4 km/h in each direction. Second in the list is a pair of express trains between Beijing and Nanjing, a distance of 1 021·9 km which is covered in 219 min at an average of 280 km/h.

Per car, Bridge 1 across Xiang river, build in 1971 and opened in 1972 at cost of 18 million Yuan. All labor for construction and design of the bridge was free voluntary, cause that's how people in the revolutionary times. And from 1972 to early 1970s crossing the bridge was free as well.

Despite its age, it's still the most frequently used bridge across the Xiang river, due to its location at city center.



btw, this dicussion should really be in China road infrastructure thread.

Changsha-Fuzhou G1692 via Shangrao-Fuzhou high speed railway takes 5:01 for 923 km, with 11 stops (goes on to Xiamen). Ticket price second class 404 yuan 5 jiao, first class 681 yuan, business class 1277 yuan.
There is also D2602 via Nanchang-Putian high speed railway, which takes 6:05 for 889 km, with 9 stops. Ticket price second class 266 yuan, first class 361 yuan 5 jiao.

For that line, oddly, no slow trains exist.

What could be the cost and trip time of a bus?
