Very cool. Looks like a super complicated machine with a super complicated process. I'm surprised that this is done over and over again without anyone screwing up!

One continent, two systems?

But yes, it is the system that makes the most sense, as long as the process couldn't be done efficiently and reliably enough on the train ride HK-Shenzhen, which would be unlikely.

The Beijing-Kowlong HSR has been given the green light and stations have been finalized. Construction for parts of the project will begin this year. All construction is scheduled to be complete before 2020. The entire line will be 350km/h. The line begins at Beijing and ends at Shenzhen/Hong Kong, passing through Hebei, Shandong, Henan, Anhui (including capital Hefei), Jiangxi (including capital Nanchang), and Guangdong.

Remember the original 4 Horizontal and 4 Vertical lines that were meant to form the basis of the HSR network? The is a lot more going on now that was originally planned.

Is this a completely separate line from the existing 350km/h Beijing-Guangzhou-Shenzhen line?

Completely separate. The current Beijing Guangzhou HSR is a high-speed version of the Beijing Guangzhou Railway. The Beijing Kowlong HSR is a high speed version of the Beijing Kowlong Railway.

Is the line Beijing-Bengbu-Hefei the same as the existing Beijing-Bengbu-Shanghai railway and Bengbu-Hefei branch, or a separate line?

No, the current Bengbu-Hefei HSR connection does not form part of the Beijing Kowlong HSR, if that's what you're asking.

The major stops on this new line are:

Beijing
Bazhou
Hengshui
Liaocheng
Heze
Shangqiu
Fuyang
Hefei
Jiujiang
Nanchang
Ji'an
Ganzhou
Heyuan
Huizhou
Shenzhen
Kowlong

I guess the section north of Hefei of the Beijing Kowlong HSR will provide some relief for the Beijing Shanghai HSR. Currently trains along the Fuzhou-Bengbu HSR section use the Bengbu-Beijing section of the Beijing-Shanghai HSR to enter Beijing. Once this line is completed trains from south of Bengbu travelling to Beijing will have another route.

China approves Olympic high-speed line

Source: Rail Journal | Date: 2015-11-03

THE municipal government of Zhangjiakou in China's northern Hebei province announced on November 3 that China's National Development and Reform Commission has approved the construction of the Yuan 58.4bn ($US 9.2bn) Beijing North - Zhangjiakou high-speed line.

The 174km line will include 10 stations and will provide a fast link for spectators travelling from Beijing to Taizicheng in Chongli County near Zhangjiakou, which is one of two venues for skiing events during the games. The line will be built for 250km/h operation and construction is expected to take four-and-a-half years to complete.

Thanks for finding this. I notice it shows the provinces it will go through yet is there a list of stations? Or maybe I missed that.

This is crazy-awesome. I expect this line to be a little faster than the Beijing-Hong Kong HSR? Took me a few minutes to wrap my head around this, this is big news and the fact that they expect it to be completed by 2020 is even more amazing.

Thanks, I did miss your list. So Kowlong is the same name for Hung Hom Station?

Actually I'm not sure how the SZ-HK section of this new line will be.

Beijing–Kowloon PDL vs Beijing–Kowloon Railway
Tiny Jiujiang looks like it will fashion itself into a nice little rail hub.

Why should it stay little? It is the mouth of Gan. Southernmost spot of a major Yangtze bend.
Note that while Beijing-Shenzhen already has a 300 km/h line via Wuhan, Shanghai-Wuhan is just 200 km/h. Unless you detour via Nanchang and Changsha... both high speed lines are far from Yangtze.
Should a 300 km/h line between Shanghai and Wuhan be built, that is closer to Yangtze?

Geograohy around Jiujiang meant it can't have rail led rapid expansionlike Zhengzhou (which in 1900 is just small town with some villages near by), there simple is no room to expand. However, with Jingjiu PDL, it is becoming a Key hub for traffic from eastern China to southern China.

This plus the new Shanghai-Chengdu 350km/h line will be two major undertakings.

Will there be trains using this new Beijing-Kowloon HSL and the new Kunming-Shanghai HSL to have a high speed (300 km/h or more) Hong Kong-Shanghai connection?

There are at present 4 daily G trains Guangzhou-Shanghai via Nanchang, but none of the 4 originates at Shenzhen North. Are there any plans to connect Shenzhen to Shanghai via Nanchang?
