And then to the border of NK-SK. Imagine SEZs on the China-DPRK border; they could be as cost competitive as you please.

A visit to Shanghai Hongqiao CRH EMU Depot

The depot lies about 6km north of Shanghai Hongqiao station, occupies an area of over 67 hectares. It has 75 road sidings, can hold 136 8-car EMUs.
The map and sign at the entrance of the depot, 1: road sidings, 2: maintenance sheds, 3: offices, 4: living area


Full view(almost) of the maintenance sheds, two 4 road sheds and one 6 road shed(left)


Inside the 6 road maintenance shed, each road can hold two 8-car EMUs or one 16-car EMU




Two CRH380Bs waiting for inspection and regular maintenance




70 8-car EMUs get through the process each day, it takes a 4 man team about 2.5 hours to do one 8 car EMU


Looking at the sidings from the entrance of the 6 road shed


What's the shed at the very left? The auther didn't mention, my guess is it's the wheel lathing shed
Notice there's a train running on elevated Beijing-Shanghai HSR in the background


Full view of the road sidings


A lot CRH380Bs


Beijing-Shanghai HSR and Shanghai-Nanjing Intercity in the background


A dirty CRH380B on it's way to get washed(?)


A few CRH380As and CRH2s hiding among CRH380Bs










A CRH380BL coming out of the wheel lathing shed


Full view of the sidings and the maintenance sheds(from the other side)




Finally, a bit of information of different levels of maintenance of all the CRH train models
It can be seen the models inherited european technology require less maintenance than the models inherited japanese technology.
It's one of the reasons both two prototype chinese standard high speed trains adopted european standard in term of traction system, bogie and running gear.

Now that was really cool to see!!!

Edit: I've realized I cannot tell the difference between a CRH3 and CRH380B. How can one differentiate? Haven't ridden on one yet but it's my favorite high speed train looks wise.

The CRH3C is the Velaro CN designed by Siemens and manufactured in Germany (the first three, initially called: CRH3A) and CNR Tangshan. 8,800 kW


The CRH380B/BL is manufactured by CNR Tangshan and CNR Changchun (Siemens has a 18% stake). 9,200 / 18,400 kW


Also is the CRH380CL manufactured by CNR Changchun with Hitachi equipment instead of Siemens. 19,200 kW for 16 cars


Whose prototype was a little different


........................................
It has nothing to do, but as it was next to another prototype ...

This is, apparently, the first version of CRH2C


the cab factory ended in CSR Sifang:


The final CRH2C:

How often do CRH toilet holding tanks need to be emptied?

I agree. There is significant maintenance load difference.

This depends on the passengers' diet.

Oh yes, and whether the passengers are pregnant. Newborn girls may be hard to flush properly.

But what is the time relied on to schedule service of toilets whether overflowing or hopefully still half full?

There are differences, but its subtle. It appears they have decided against a full face lift for the CRH2C

E2-1000


CRH2

There's no schedule. The tanks are serviced when they are full, a fact signalled by the characteristic brown streak the train leaves behind itself.

Do you mean CRH toilets are routinely allowed to overflow to tracks?

If they're full of shit then it's likely that the shit will hit the tracks or even cause a shitstorm.


Sorry couldn't resist
Anyway that's one weird topic to discuss in an HSR thread.
