yes, it is cheaper and more environment friendly than building lots of airports and creating low cost domestic airline carriers.

Terrorism in China usually just brings the Chinese to unite even more and hate even more the international supporters of it, so if it will be used, it will be very sparingly.

Why look all the way over at Europe? Why not look at Kunming?

Not to mention Xinjiang...

Everything is vulnerable. Personally I feel that all "terrorist" attacks are government created to strike fear in citizens and encourage people to give over freedom for security.

I love that the CRH system is completely grade separated from roads and from what I've seen all fenced in. No hitting wild animals at 300km/h. That's security to me.

Well, that is exactly what happened in the US after 9/11 with the Patriot act and the attacks that soon followed in Europe etc. etc. but in China things are a bit different. There is the Xinjiang national question and terrorism, as any Chinese well knows, is funded from abroad.

Does Shenyang now have a new CRH station, different from "Shenyang" and "Shemyang North"?

These new Chinese railway stations are absolutely incredible. China really thought large when it came to this new railway system.

My worry is maintenance. In India we often see good infra being built up but it is simply not maintained at all. Hope they maintain it well.

The eldest high speed railway of China is Qinhuangdao-Shenyang. Opened in 2003, ran at 250 km/h from Sixth Speedup Campaign in 2007 till Second Slowdown Campaign in 2011.

So a total 12 years of service, 4 of which were operated at 250 km/h.
Does Qinhuangdao-Shenyang high speed railway show any signs of wear or of deferred maintenance?

Incidentally, it can be seen on the way to Dandong. There are 3 G trains daily Tianjin-Dandong, of which G395 and G397 originate in Beijing and G1229 in Shanghai. Trip time Tianjin-Dandong is 5:17...5:41, departures 10:04...14:49, arrivals 15:45...20:08.
