I love that bridge!!!! Minimal impact to the land, wildlife and people can cross the railroad freely.

Love how integrated that station is with the local infrastructure, but that drainage ditch obviously needs some work. That joke cracked by that swimmer... gotta appreciate Chinese humor.

Just a simple achievement for the others, but a milestone for the engineers to make it happen

Good think the artwork is above water, with a nice blue line indicating the water line.

Is CRH now going to add "gold" to the color of their trains? The first departure from blue seems to be the orange line on the CRH6F. I wonder why the reason for the color change on the CRH6F.

Construction progress of Nanjing(南京)-Anqing(安庆) PDL near Yijiang(弋江) station
The PDL is scheduled to start test run in August and open by the end of this year
By 小黑想做摄影师

Nanjing-Anqing PDL two main tracks and two platform tracks




South throat of the station


Looking back at the the station


Further down south, four tracks, from left to right: Hefei-Hangzhou, Nanjing-Anqing, Anqing-Nanjing, Hangzhou-Hefei


Since Nanjing-Anqing PDL and planned Hefei-Hangzhou HSR run side by side from Wuhu(芜湖) statio to Yijiang station, even Hefei-Hangzhou HSR hasn't officially started the construction phase, the main construction of this section has nearly been finished to minimise the interruption.

The view of these two lines winding though Wuhu city towards Yijiang station


Goolgemap position of this section, Yijiang station just a couple kilometres down south
