Hainan gets first CRH1A-A trainsets
24 Nov 2016



CHINA: The first CRH1A-A high speed trains supplied by Bombardier Sifang (Qingdao) Transportation Ltd entered service with China Railway Corp on November 18, operating from the city of Sanya on Hainan Island.

Designated Zefiro 250NG by the manufacturer, the 250 km/h eight-car trainsets were ordered in 2012 as part of a variation order on an earlier contract. This saw the number of 380 km/h Zefiro 380 (CRH380D) vehicles ordered by the former Ministry of Railways reduced in favour of more 250 km/h trains

Qingdao-Rongcheng high-speed rail gets rolling
18 November 2016
China Daily Excerpt

A high-speed railway connecting the three major cities of Qingdao, Yantai, and Weihai, across the Shandong Peninsula opened on Nov 16, forming a one-hour city-to-city loop.

With construction starting in 2011, and costing 37 billion yuan ($5.5 billion), the railway runs for 300 kilometers, traversed by trains at an average speed of 250 kilometers per hour, peaking out at 300 kph.

Starting at Qingdao North Railway Station, the line goes northeast through Jiaodong Peninsula and ends at Rongcheng Railway Station in Weihai, stopping at 14 stations.

Journey times between Qingdao and Yantai will be reduced from four and a half hours to just one, according to an official from Yantai railway bureau.

Travel times between Qingdao and Weihai will also be cut to less than two hours.

On 12/29/2014 the Jinan to Rongcheng service it took 4 hours 21 minutes and now take 4 h 10 m. http://www.chinatrainguide.com/ http://www.chinahighlights.com/china...rch-result.asp
Qingdao to Haiyang 1 h 1 m 144 km
Qingdao to Yantai 1 h 14 m 201 km
Qingdao to Rongcheng 2 h 13 m 316 km

The final 32 km section of the Qingdao – Rongcheng Intercity Railway opened on November 16.
Quote:
The Passenger-Dedicated Line starts from the Qingdao Bei station in the north of the city and runs to Yantai, Weihai and Rongcheng.

Construction of the line on the Shandong peninsula was approved in 2008 and began in 2011. The initial Rongcheng – Jimo Bei section opened for regional services on December 28 2014. The 37bn yuan project included the construction of a 299 km route suitable for 250 km/h operation, plus 36 km of connecting lines and 14 stations.

There are 18 trains each way per day, taking around 150 min.
As I was convinced that they were 33 km
I´m sorry

On the other hand, thanks flankerjun for the news of the increase of speeds.
Is there a calendar by lines? As it seems that they will do the same as when they were lowered: each line on a date.
Thank you!

Great pictures. What is the difference between the CRH-0305 and CRH-0507? Are these official names for these trains or just a working "name/number?" Are they going away from the CRH-1/2/3/5/6/380A/380B/380C/380D naming conventions?

I love seeing these new entries, the trains are beautiful yet I feel like I know very little about them.

CRH-0305 and CRH-0507 are two trains that made by different manufacture,CNR Tangshan and CNR Changchun,the train is designed by CNR Changchun,like the difference between ICE3 and CRH3C.they are not official names but name for prototype trains,mainly used for test or technology experiment.for example CRH0201 0202 0203 are comprehensive inspection trains,or CIT trains,CRH0204 is CIT500,CRH0205 is a 250km/h test train,CRH0206 is a CRH380A with Permanent magnet motor.
I have some details about this train,and I will reply in this thread later

Shanghai-Kunming HSR Kunming section test run onboard CRH380AJ



ps. CTCS3 (equivalent to ETCS2) DMI planning area reads from left to right unlike ETCS2 from bottom to top, and it's really a shame the train simulation CRH380A/AJ addons don't have this feature

High-speed trains delayed by rail malfunctions
29 November 2016
China Daily

Railway service of the Beijing-Shanghai high-speed railway was restored at noon today after it was forced to a standstill this morning due to an explosion in Jinan, capital city of Shandong province, according to the official micro-blog of Jinan Railway Bureau.

A plant which is said to produce methanol materials exploded at 9:30 am this morning at Huaiyin District of Jinan, local media reported.

Fire caused by the explosion at the plant was put out one hour after the explosion took place and there are no known casualties as of noon, Jinan Times reported.

The explosion caused circuit breakdown which caused trains running on the Beijing-Shanghai high-speed railway to go out of service, according to Jinan Railway Bureau. The railway is about 100 meters away from the plant.

They've been nicknamed as the Blue Dolphin and the Golden Phoenix by the media.

As I understand, CRRC enlisted european and australian industrial design studios helping design the exterior and interior of both the prototypes. They certainly have done a good job.

Part of Guangzhou-Kunming High-speed Railway to open
Dec. 2, 2016
Shenzhen Daily Excerpt

A SECTION of the Guangzhou-Kunming High-speed Railway will be opened Dec. 26, and when the whole rail line is completed, the trip from Shenzhen to Kunming, Yunnan Province, by high-speed train will be shortened from 29 hours to about 10 hours, the Shenzhen Evening News reported Thursday.

The soon-to-open section between Kunming and Nanning covers 710 kilometers, with 434 kilometers passing through Yunnan Province. The railway is designed for travel at a speed of 250 kilometers per hour. Construction of the rail line started in December 2009.

The other section of the Guangzhou-Kunming High-speed Railway — from Nanning in Guangxi to Guangzhou — has been listed in China’s mid- and long-term railway network plan for construction between 2016 and 2030. It will have a designed speed of 350 kilometers per hour.

Kunming-Guiyang?
