Sorry, but as for me it doesn't look like exceeding even a modest 160 km/h. Its aerodynamics is ok for suburban train or metro, but definitely not for HSR.

Why there are too many different trains running in China?
And why there are too many jets and ships in this thread?
Confusing.

CRH1 DEBUT 1/2 2007 FROM GUANGZHOU-SHENZHEN

国产最牛列车“快马CRH”2月起飞驰广深线(组图)




1月30日,中国铁路高速列车“快马CRH”亮相广州。今年春运,铁道部安排15组国产动车组CRH上线运营,其中6组划拨给广铁集团(公司)使用,它们将担当广深线广州东至深圳间22对旅客列车运行。目前,已有4组整修试运行完毕,将于2月1日陆续上线运营。

据悉,投入运营的高速列车将分一等、二等两个档次车票,票价将与现价差不多。4月18日铁路第六次大提速后,高速列车往返广深只需50分钟。

每列设2节吸烟车厢

昨天,一辆白色的火车静静停泊在广深线车辆段。如同子弹头一样尖尖的“脑袋”,流线型设计的外观,宽敞明亮的空间,CRH1列车无论是外观设计还是内部装饰布局,都优于普通列车。

记者发现,每组CRH1动车组由8辆车组成,其中5辆动力车,3辆拖车;首尾车辆都设有驾驶室,无须调挂车头即可双向驾驶。车厢分一等车2节和二等车6节,座位按2+2和2+3布置。每节车厢内都配备了大件行李架。列车中央空调可令车厢温度保持在26℃~28℃之间。车厢内的电子显示屏可通过GPS定位自动预告前方到达站站名。

第1节车厢由驾驶室和一等车厢组成,记者坐在宽敞的位置上,一伸手点亮“阅读灯”,温暖的灯光便洒遍全身。在3、6节车厢,一个蓝色的烟灰盒隐藏在前排座位的后靠背上。据悉,这是首列带吸烟车厢的广深列车,若获上级部门批准可吸烟,抽烟的乘客在火车上也可以过烟瘾了。在第5节车厢内,不锈钢吧台、液晶大电视,让人以为来到了某个酒吧。冰箱、微波炉、烤箱、电热水器等设施为旅途疲惫的乘客提供方便。该车厢还设置了残疾人专用轮椅位、残疾人厕所。

时速达250公里/小时

据专家介绍,与上海的CRH2相比,CRH1列车上的座位是不能旋转的。但因此节省了空间,乘客座位更宽敞。对于习惯了豪华列车的广深乘客而言,CRH1与新时速、蓝箭相比噪音小、启动快,最快可跑250公里/小时。此外CRH1与普通列车相比,车厢更宽敞,由以往3.14米增宽至3.33米;载客量大,全车定员668人,比其他车多200人。将来广深车全部使用CRH1后将大大缓解客流压力,乘客买“站票”的情况将越来越少。

记者了解到,CRH国产高速列车在广深之间的具体车次和开行日期已初步确定:广州东—深圳T971/2次、T871/2次自2月1日起开行;T771、T981、T781将从2月2日起开行,具体开行时间以售票点发售为准。(通讯员苏林、梁帅、谢小玲) (大洋网) 记者:耿旭静

I thought the exterior looked better than the 2, but interior wise, I thought the CRH2 looked to be of a higher class than the 1.

CRH1's interior looks very much like a commuter train (that's not a good thing in my books)

And that huge door and the sign display right above the door just look so much something I would take to work.

But what I will have to admit is that this train is a much better candidate for the NXXX inter-city trains than the CRH2.

I just love how this train looks on the outside

LOL the last picture, is that a broken window?

I like this train more than the Shinkansen one. It has a better interior.

Nice trains.
One note though, they should put more Chinese signs outside than English signs, so that ordinary Chinese can understand what CRH means, and how fast 250km/h is for example.

Very Nice Trains, that's fantastic to travel between 2 world class cities within an hour.

Does it run on traditional railway or a special line is built for it?

The CRH1 is derived from the Swedish X50-series (see pictures):


pictures:Järnväg.net

These trains are used in Sweden for (Inter)Regional trainservices.

The next series will be the CRH3, build by Siemens and derived from the spanish Velaro E (see picture):

Did CRH debut between Guangzhou - Shengzhen?
I saw a CRH photo titled Chongqing, so what about Chongqing, so did Chongqing - Chengdu made their running debut as well?

If you use other's technologies, then you should acknowledge the sources,

Xinhuanet, Renminribao and other Chinese newspapers just focuses on "Chinese made" and not a single word on foreign technologies just makes one wonder whether intellectual property is respected at all
