It is just amazing to see what the People's Republic of China has achieved in matter of railways within the last 10 years (I am not Chinese....).Not to mention what they have done in Africa (Ethiopia,Kenya....).

Disagree somewhat - Amtrak's Roomette has a lot more space but privacy & peace and quiet is far better with a physical door to close.

Indeed... which is why I only said privacy. Privacy as in nobody can look at you from outside, which I think is equivalent to the roomette. Peace and quiet is worse, but that’s always the case in such a crowded country.

21st century 硬卧, they've gotta keep the speed down for passenger comfort - that is in terms of departure and arrival times. Of course the "dining" car offered slim pickins: everyone takes their own noodle pot & pickled chicken feet. I wonder if we'll see many more of these disrupting the nighttime track maintenance crews.

Beijing-Shanghai at 1318 km is too short for a high speed overnight trip. How does Beijing-Guangzhou compare?

In the wikipedia in English it put (until a few days ago) 1302,890 km, now: 1302 and in Chinese 1318 km.

Thanks in advance!

China pays a high price for world's fastest train
Breakneck pace of railway expansion leads to mountain of debt
Nikkei Asian Review Excerpt

TOKYO -- When China recently reclaimed the title of having the world fastest train, it might have been a moment of national celebration. Instead, there were worries about whether the cost was worth it.

The "Fuxing" (rejuvenation) high-speed train service between Beijing and Shanghai returned to operating at 350kph on Sept. 21. For six years, it had been limited to 300kph following a crash in 2011 when two high-speed trains collided, killing 40 people and injuring about 200.

Soon after the Beijing-Shanghai line returned to full speed, the internet began buzzing with rumors that train fares would also rise in line with the higher speed.

Perhaps people would have been more enthusiastic -- as the country heads into the Communist Party's congress in October -- if concerns were not so great about the mountain of debt that the country's ambitious railway program has built up.

China Railway Group -- the state-owed company that operates high-speed trains -- now groans with over $700 billion in debt.

Speculation is rife that fares must rise to service the debt. High-speed train fares for the route between Shanghai and Shenzhen did in fact rise 20-60% in April.

But there has been no fare increase for the Beijing-Shanghai route yet. First- and second-class fares have stayed at 933 yuan ($140) and 553 yuan, respectively.
