I wonder if this new train could also be used to run from Beijing to Harbin at full speed also in winter.

300km/h all year round for HSR in the northeast
http://www.china-railway.com.cn/xwdt...027_51525.html

Don't know if anyone noticed this, from this year, there will be no speed reduction to 200km/h following the winter schedule. Harbin - Dalian & Panjin - Yingkou HSR will run at 300km/h all year round!

We should not be adding journey time by inserting many stations in between for an already long line hoping to make a bad redundancy case more relevant.
Taiwan is doing exactly that - inserting many stations. Which is not slowing down the line at all. The trains with 2 stops still take 1:36 as before. The trains with 6 stops still take 2:00 as before. It is just the trains with all stops that now take 2:18.

How many stations should be inserted between Beijing and Tianjin?

Taiwan incomes are far higher so they can draw commuters in to use the HSR. Cannot blindly compare against the mainland. Adding the 3 new stations has slowed the overall journey time, although they still maintain some skip-stop services. Also keep in mind Taipei and Kaohsiung are not far apart, so the incremental time difference would be relatively small. You can't extrapolate that to the much longer Beijing - Shanghai or Beijing - Guangzhou services.

1:36 vs. 2:18. 42 minutes difference, on top of 96 minutes.

But China has a lot of short distances.
Taipei-Zuoying 339 km
Shanghai-Nanjing 301 km
Beijing-Shijiazhuang 281 km
Beijing-Jinan West 406 km.

I refer back to what was previously discussed - average urban incomes are not enough to sustain commutes on the CRH. So what is the purpose of adding stations even if you myopically chop up city pairs along these long lines?
