High-speed trains to get Wi-Fi in 3-5 years
June 22, 2016
China Daily Excerpt

WiFi services are expected to be offered on China's high-speed trains in three to five years.

It was revealed that China Railway Rolling Stock Corporation (CRRC) is testing WiFi services on high-speed trains at the Modern Railways 2016, a railway technology and equipment expo held in Beijing from June 20 to 22.

Such WiFi services offer an integrated wireless platform for both passengers and the train crew, said a staff worker of CRRC.

WiFi services on high-speed trains are rather different from what is used in homes and offices.

It certainly is needed in regards to having a regional high-speed commuter railway across the Pearl River Delta & Guangdong. Quite a different from the national CRH long distance network.

there is quite a few high profile news on this front, first NPC congress this year, then Xi, then this. Perhaps we'll see 350 km/hr again later this year?
I hear the Chinese HSR trainset are facing various mechanical failures which is straining their operation schedules.
Is this fact or just another rumor?

Considering DuoWei news is the same boat as Epoch Times, I wouldn't use it as a source of information about China.

Urumqi Station first in Xinjiang to use face recognition
7 July 2016
China Daily


AJY_9541 by akira yamamoto, on Flickr

Train No D8802 departed Urumqi Railway Station on July 3, beginning trial operation of Xinjiang's biggest and most advanced railway station.

Construction of the station, located in Urumqi's economic and technological development zone, started in 2013. The north station building has now opened but the south one is still being built. Its highest passenger count per day is expected to reach 240,000.

During the trial period, six trains will head to Xinjiang's Hami city from Urumqi carrying over one thousand passengers each day.

The station is the first in Xinjiang to launch face identification for security screening and its ticket checking process is fully automatic.

Lu Yanhong, assistant station master, said there are enough service staff in the station answering passengers' questions to complement the many directional signs. The service counter is also available to assist travelers with train schedules or other matters.

She added that more service people will join the team when the trains increase. The counter will later use the "internet plus" to provide a more detailed search and reserve ticket service.

World’s fastest crossing test of bullet trains

https://www.facebook.com/XinhuaNewsA...7322300628544/








China conducts first test of bullet trains running in opposite directions crossing each other at a relative speed over 800 kph, the world’s fastest for trains to be put into operation.

The test is held at a section of high-speed railway line in central China's Henan Province, which links Zhengzhou in Henan and Xuzhou in east China's Jiangsu Province. Each of the two trains in test is running at 420 kph at the time of crossing.

The crossing, which lasts for just a few seconds, is regarded as the ultimate challenge for bullet trains, experts say.

China has the world's longest high-speed rail network with over 19,000 km of track in service by the end of 2015.


At present, the fastest trains are operating at speeds of up to 310 kph in China

I thought the record for conventionally-wheeled trains is the AGV at 575 kph and the record for two passing vehicles is the Japanese L0 Maglev at something like 1200 kph.

Two passing vehicles record belongs to two F-16s passing next to each other opposing directions by Thunderbirds team...
