China's railway construction robust

China's railway construction robust

http://www.china.org.cn/business/201...t_37432012.htm

Investment in China's railways in 2015 is still growing despite an economic slowdown.

China spent 820 billion yuan ($126 billion) on rail projects in 2015 and put more than 9,000 kilometers of new track into operation, meeting its annual targets of 800 billion yuan investment and 8,000 kilometers of new lines, according to China Railway Corporation.

With a newly completed high-speed railway track in the southern Hainan province, China now has 19,000 kilometers of high-speed rail.

The fast growth of railway construction projects came at a time when the country is enduring continuous deceleration in the growth of fixed-asset investment. In the first 11 months of 2015, fixed-asset investment grew 10.2 percent year on year, slowing from 13.9 percent of growth seen at the beginning of this year.

--

New Lines opened in 2015: 9531km
Investment: 823.8bln RMB (128.7bln US dollars)

2011-2015
New Line: ~30500km
Investment:3.58tln RMB (559.3bln US dollars)

No, Meilian Station on the Hainan Eastern Ring High-Speed Railway also has PSDs. Where does Japan have mainline station PSDs?

The travel time should reduce slightly once Shapingba station opens in Chonging later this year. This would also reduce congestion at Chongqing North.

Hello,
I'm still trying to find a model of the CRH380D. Harmony makes a replica of it in 1:160 scale, my understanding is that it's sold at a train station, I've tried as many of the online retailers as i can find, no one seems to have it or can get it from there vendors. Any help sure would be appreciated, maybe a finders fee would be appropriate here, please help me, not sure where else to turn. I sincerely hope this is the right place to post this
Cheers,
Will

You can buy the CRH380D on AliExpress online which sell for $480.80 USD with free shipping to USA. Another seller sells it at a 14% discount for $370.49 USD.

Don't have enough post count to include a link. But just Google AliExpress for their websire, then search for CRH380D or CRH380.

Found CRH380D on Taobao website, mentions Zefiro 380. It's in Chinese.
Price is 1380 rmb, or $210.93 USD. Not sure about the shipping but I think it's 90rmb/kg from Beijing to US.
