It's not exactly cross-platform, is it?

Such arrangements would probably have worked better in Europe where there's a high degree of integration between long-distance and local service (subway, commuter rail) than in China where they hold everyone in a waiting area until the long distance trains arrive.

Well you still walk across the platform to change trains.

Do the c trains take metro fare cards for ticketing?

they don't seem to show the bridge between HK and Zhuhai that is under construction. And I thought there was a rail tunnel planned from Dalian southwards thru to Shandong

A vactrain is a proposed, as-yet-unbuilt design for future high-speed railroad transportation. This would entail building maglev lines through evacuated (air-less) or partly evacuated tubes or tunnels. Though the technology is currently being investigated for development of regional networks, advocates have suggested establishing vactrains for transcontinental routes to form a global network. The lack of air resistance could permit vactrains to use little power and to move at extremely high speeds, up to (4000-5000 mph (6400–8000 km/h) or 5-6 times the speed of sound at sea level and standard conditions

No, that is why there are two different sets of barrier gates set close together. The first one in the photo is for CRH services and the second one is for Chengdu Metro.

That is not a railway bridge; the tunnel is really long long term plan

China's Fuxing bullet trains to restore 350 km/h speed on Beijing-Shanghai HSR in Sept

http://news.xinhuanet.com/english/20..._136478028.htm

BEIJING, July 27 (Xinhua) -- China started tests Thursday to restore the maximum speed of the Beijing-Shanghai high-speed bullet train to 350 kilometers per hour, six years after it was reduced to 300.

Departing Beijing South Railway Station at 8:38 a.m., a Fuxing bullet train completed the round-trip from Beijing to Xuzhou in east China's Jiangsu Province, about 700 kilometers away, in about four hours.

The speed hike will cut the Beijing-Shanghai journey to about 4.5 hours, about half an hour faster than the current minimum.

The test will pave way for a new schedule on the Beijing-Shanghai railway starting mid-September.

Connecting the Chinese capital with its major financial and trade hub, the Beijing-Shanghai high-speed railway is one of the busiest in the country, carrying over 100 million passengers a year.

The test on Thursday showed that energy consumption on the Fuxing decreased to 10 percent less than on the Hexie train (CRH380) when running at a speed of 350 kilometers per hour.

"The Beijing-Shanghai high speed railway is built to the highest standard, while the Fuxing is designed and manufactured with an operating speed of 350 kilometers per hour. It is out of question for Fuxing to run on the Beijing-Shanghai line at such a speed from the point of view of technical safety, reliability and comfort," said Lu Dongfu, general manager of China Railway Corporation.

China started to run its first 350-kmh high speed train between Beijing and Tianjin in Aug. 2008 and opened at least three more such high speed lines nationwide in the following years, until the authorities ordered speeds to be cut to between 250-300kmh in 2011.

China's Fuxing bullet trains were unveiled in June and are capable of top speeds of 400 kmh.

China will open seven Fuxing trains in either direction of the Beijing-Shanghai line in its initial stage. The ticket price will not change.

The authorities will gradually increase the number of the new bullet train and adjust ticket prices in future, He said.

China has the world's longest high-speed rail network, 22,000 kilometers at the end of last year, or about 60 percent of the world's total.

About one-third of China's high-speed railways were designed to run at a speed of 350 kmh, according to He.

I would like to understand how the Chinese pulled off this high speed railway project so successfully. Obviously a combination of good project management, people management, engineering and something else I have no idea. I also don't understand how railways really work to keep track of all the different trains and coordinating all of them to work flawlessly. Probably have to railroad school to understand it all. All in all this project is amazingly impressive.

How shall these 7 Fuxing trains get past Hexie trains?
