Exactly when is the opening for scheduled passenger service of Shenyang-Dandong and Jilin-Hunchun high speed railways respectively?
How is the progress of Dalian-Dandong high speed railway?

So I ask again, are there any European-like services, where the train runs on HSL for a time and then goes back to the old line to serve small cities?

Also, is there an up-to-date high-resolution map somewhere?

trains runing on a 200-250KM/H line then going back to 300-350km/H line is quite common in China,some 200-250KM/H lines are old line,so this is what you said?

there are two maps
this one is update to June,but it is quite amazing.

It's a derivative of Shinkansen slab track system, one of the slab track systems widely used in China.
Other systems include ZÜBLIN(latest version), Rheda 2000, Bögl and China own developed CTRS III.

Here a picture of Shinkansen slab track popped up when googling, it's the version with cut out in the middle to reduce cost.

Acturally, the youtube video you posted two pages back, doesn't the slab track look just like that?

China opens northernmost high-speed line
Monday, August 17, 2015



CHINA launched passenger services on its most northerly high-speed line on August 17 with the start of commercial operations on the Harbin - Qiqihar line in Heilongjiang province

The completion of the 281km line has reduced the journey time between the two cities to 1h 25min

China to accelerate railway investment in H2

English.news.cn 2015-08-17 10:54:27

China has hastened efforts to build high speed rails as annual investment targets are still far from complete.

On Monday, China's northernmost high-speed railway started operation in Heilongjiang Province. The trip from Harbin City, the provincial capital, to Qiqihar City was reduced from three hours to 85 minutes.

Last week, a railway linking Jinan City and Qingdao City in east China's Shandong Province broke ground. Local governments will raise 80 percent of the 60 billion yuan (9.4 billion U.S. dollars) investment, while all previous projects were primarily funded by the China Railway Corporation.

China has invested more than 265.1 billion yuan in domestic railway construction in the first half of 2015, up 12.7 percent. An additional 2,226 km of new rail lines were put into service.

At the start of the year, China set targets to invest more than 800 billion yuan in railway construction this year, creating 8,000 km of new track.

This means the country must spend more than 500 billion yuan on railways and service 5,000 km of new lines by the end of the year.

"The government is pushing ahead with railway development with great efforts. The construction will boom in the latter half of the year," said Wang Mengshu, a railway expert with the Chinese Academy of Engineering.

What kind of signaling China HSR uses? Since it has a mix of railway from different manufacture like Alstom, Simens, Bombardier and so on.

Also whats the average speed of those Pendolinos? Top is 243kmph?

CTCS 2/3, slightly tweaked versions of ETCS 1/2

Average speed varies from 197kph to 153kph with one stop to five stops, top speed is 250kph though probably rarely reached during the journey at this stage due to excessive slack time in the timetable.

News was saying 20 trains each way from opening, I could only find 17 trains each way as well.

Is there any place where you can find which type of rolling stock is used on which routes? I will make some trips with CRH next month and am curious what which types of trains I can expect. I will be doing Urumqi - Turpan, Chongqing - Wuhan and Hankou - Beijing by high speed train.

Can you please report us back after your. With photos, if you can. It's really interesting to hear people's experiences on CRH.

I myself will do Shenzhen-Guangzhou-Nanning in October.

Please post your photos of another HSR trip after your trip, too.
By the way, are you working in a field related to transportation or engineering?
Otherwise I cannot imagine why you are so enthusiastic about HSR travelling. So far, I have not had any experience in riding high speed train, which is a pity. But I think myself prefer to travel by driving a car around
since I will have more freedom and flexibility along the trip. Just my personal
peference.
