Entrances are named by alphabet , this point is quite different form the other CRH lines . It just like a metro style station , but the signs are in "National railway" style .
Very much so. I would of course know where I was, but just looking at the signage I would have thought I were in a metro station.

So does it mean that Sanyanqiao Station is a station on both Guangzhou-Sanshui railway and Guangzhou South-Nanning railway?

4 underground stations in this section , They are LongFeng(龙丰),XiHuDong(西湖东),YunShan(云山),XiaoJinKou(小金口)

At the western section of Dongguan–Huizhou Intercity Railway , It will be 5 underground station (The track map in the wiki page has a mistake that LiaoBu sta. is elevated , but it is underground actually).

This is certainly an interesting development with commercial branding on CRH trains. It could see an explosion of liveries if this practice expands to other lines and serivces.

HSBC express train starts services
2016-April-6 Source: Newsgd.com


A train named as HSBC Express starts service today, running between Shenzhen and Guangzhou. The bank sponsored half of the trains running between these two cities in order to show its confidence in Guangdong's Pearl River Delta.

Stuart Gulliver, HSBC Group Chief Executive, said, HSBC's heritage in China extends back over 150 years, to the point when we were founded to finance local and international trade. Today we are increasing our presence in the Pearl River Delta to support its future. Guangdong - and in particular the Pearl River Delta - is at the forefront of China's transition to a higher value model of economic growth.

Peter Wong, Deputy Chairman and Chief Executive of The Hong Kong and Shanghai Banking Corporation Limited, said: "The economic potential of the Pearl River Delta is significant. As China continues its economic transformation, the Pearl River Delta is once again reinventing itself by moving up the economic ladder to focus on advanced manufacturing, high-tech and service industries. This train sponsorship demonstrates our confidence in the economic prospects of the Pearl River Delta, as well as the whole of China."

Half of the 22 trains running between Guangzhou East Railway Station and Shenzhen Lo Wu Station are named after this bank. It is estimated that nearly 30 million passengers each year will board those trains. Passengers who traveled on HSBC Express will also able to use in-train TV content to stay informed and connected during the 72-minute journey.

That is great idea. I bet that will decrease the maintenance/running cost a lot.

It is encouraging to see the track count in this area.

China to keep railway investment momentum: vice-premier
Xinhua
1 April 2016

HEFEI - Vice-Premier Ma Kai said Thursday that China will continue a "relatively large" scale of railway investment in the next five years, a critical period for railway expansion.

He made the remarks at a conference on railway construction, stressing the significance of railway development in China from 2016 to 2020.

"We should speed up the expansion of China's high-speed railway network, build more inter-city and city-suburb links, and work to complete a freight railway network," said the vice premier.

"We must accomplish the target of investing more than 800 billion yuan ($123 billion) in railway construction in 2016," said Ma.

China has some 121,000 kilometers of rail lines in operation. More than 19,000 kilometers of them are high-speed railways, accounting for over 60 percent of the total in the world.

Good news. I think this type of investment is one of the best things China can do.

Yes, but what is the station count?

No special restrictions for viaducts / elevated sections.

Some are designed for say... 250 km/h and others for 380 km/h?

Much of Japan's system is purposely built on viaducts so as to free up land underneath. It's generally MORE stable than building on berms. If you've travelled on a TGV through the countryside, you'll know what I mean. The amount of sway is considerably higher than either Japan's Shinkansen or ( I imagine ) China's rail system.

Isn't a land below such a viaduct of greatly reduced value compared to others plots nearby?

Well, actually, the "logic" is kind of other way around. Viaducts and bridges are the features of the railroad that permits higher speeds

A greater motivation for constructing high speed rails on viaducts and bridges in China is to ensure than farmers and their animals do not encroach onto the tracks. This is in addition to the traditional values, such as ensuring steady grades and tolerances for higher speeds.

It is still useful for agriculture.
And also, it is at least available, under ordinary embankment it has no value.
