It's a software(only 690KB and free). You can download it at this website.
http://www.jpskb.com/down.htm

but the website only in Simplified Chinese. If you understand some Chinese, find the first "[本地下载]", then click left button of mouse.

PS:the software can update. if the latest timetable release, you can receive a message.

Highspeed rail train stalled for 3 hours with over a thousand passengers due to a single cigarette smoked by a passenger.

Observe that:

The passengers in the second class do not look particularly excited or barbarian, either.

Most first class seats are full. Somehow many people do want to pay extra.

The armrest between the first class seats looks pretty solid. So even sitting next to an empty seat, it is impractical to lie across seats.

Errant Chinese smoker stops world's fastest train

BEIJING, Dec 30 (Reuters) - The world's fastest train hit its first speed bump in the form of a disobedient smoker less than a week after it began running in southern China.

A cigarette triggered an alarm that forced a two-and-a-half hour stoppage, nearly as long as the train takes to cover the 1,100 kilometre (684 mile) distance between Guangzhou, capital of Guangdong province, and the central city of Wuhan.

Managers of the bullet train, which debuted on Saturday, were unable to catch the smoker who fled the scene before the alarm sounded, the official Xinhua news agency reported on Wednesday.

"Smoking is strictly forbidden on the Wuhan-Guangzhou high-speed train, even in the toilet," a spokesman with the Guangzhou Railway Group Corporation was quoted as saying. "It could trigger the alarm and even cause equipment failures."

The train was in the Guangzhou rail station when it was delayed and had not yet begun its 350-km-per-hour journey, Xinhua added.

looks like there isn't much of a difference..something I observed here on the TGV too...between first class and economy as compared to a plane where the difference is much higher.

Really?

Quote:
A permanent magnet motor occupies about one-third less space than an asynchronous motor, so it can fit within the bogie rather than being suspended from the car body as with TGV. This lowers the centre of gravity and makes it possible to reduce the floor height by 100mm, which means only two 20cm-high steps are needed to board AGV from a French station platform.

...

The AGV bogie uses composites as well as steel to produce a weight saving of 1 tonne per bogie. Overall, AGV will weigh 10 to 15 tonnes less than TGV. Moreover, as Mr Francois Lacote, Alstom's technical director, explains: "the amount of noise produced by an AGV motor bogie is lower than that of a TGV traction bogie and about the same as that of a TGV trailer bogie."
Sounds like quite an improvement...


On a similar note, here is the word from the horse's mouth on the situation in Spain:

What is the current situation of the ERTMS installation programme in Spain?

At present, 1 053 km of the Spanish high speed network has been equipped with ERTMS Level 1. Around 1 600 km is planned to be in service by 2010.

In addition, trials are currently underway of ERTMS Level 2 signalling on the Madrid – Lleida section of the high speed line to Barcelona, which will enable the maximum speed to be raised to 350 km/h where the infrastructure allows it.

It is not, at least on small planes for shorthaul domestic flights. See this China Eastern plane:

I got on a Belgian train recently and accidentally went into first class, I was told to move by the conductor and went to the second class. The only difference I could see was the seats were a different colour, they were no bigger or further apart, maybe the only difference is that it is less busy due to a prohibitive premium.
