Hmm, don't know if it's just my hormones, but judging by the pics posted by Hunan China, all the personnel in the train and serving it seems to be very pretty... is this by chance?

All of the photo are come from Internet, so maybe some photo take by official as a advertiment for CRH

At the same time, Not everything is pretty.

ticket price of CRH is too high for low-income population, student and farmer.

the amount of passenger is so numerous, you can not get a ticket smoothly sometimes.

Thanks a lot Yaohua (and Ariel), that's pretty interesting, workers scribbling 8th century poetry on the wall... it's a bit as though Italian workers wrote ancient Latin poetry on a tunnel wall... only, in Italy it can hardly happen

Maybe we could install a huge parachute for Airbus and Boeing, and then the air crash will never be happen.

Trust me, the situation of safety precautions is good and will be better.

It is not about safety precautions (which I believe it will be good), it is about first moments of emergency situations, when rescue teams are still not on the site of the accident and evacuation is necessary. Of course I'll wait for photos of final tunnel (if there will be any).

You're welcome

that's a old version plan map. as a matter of fact, there are some new CRH plan line not on the map. Programing a new CRH line like a war to the different local government, because the line's trend involve immense benefit. so, the new plan will not emerge on the map until everything is certain.

Is it possible to add safety tunnels, in addition to safety rooms, at this stage?

May I have some explanations on trains' inventory numbers?

As I see on the pictures above, CRH3 are Siemens trains, aren't they?
What about other CRH, I've seen somewhere CRH5 and CRH2 if I'm not wrong?

I also know there are some lines with Japanese Shinkansen trains, is there much difference in operating German and Japanese train, are they running on the same lines?

CRH3 - Siemens (ICE) - China South Locomotive and Rolling Stock (Tangshan)
CRH2 - Kawasaki (Shinkansen) - China North Locomotive and Rolling Stock (Sifang)

Currently, both CRH2 and CRH3 serve the Wuhan-Guangzhou Line.

Actually, fan works is far better than the official one. This map is updated on January 24, 2010 (click to enlarge):



Black = Existing conventional line
- Dot-line = Electrified
- Yellow with black borders = Double track electrified conventional
- Gray with black borders = Coal railway
- Gray = Local railway
Blue = New line had been put into service
Brown = Construction completed, ready to open for service
Red = Under construction
Yellow = Construction could start in near future
Green = Planned

The bolder, the higher speed.

Timetable map

Is there any maps on how many trains daily travel on the high-speed lines?

Substancially increased access journey distance, huge walking distances on the square, and from the 'Great Hall' onto the platforms. This is how it should be?

Rail travel should be about walk to the station (or a 10-minute metro journey from most core parts of the city) and jump onto the train.

Some people just cannot digest new developments. [/QUOTE]

No, some authorities just cannot plan developments properly.

Good to look at, from the air, but a nightmare to access and negotiate. St. Pancras is bad enough with the platforms 300 yards behind the entrance.

You are speaking of timetable, not map.

G-series (long-haul 300+ km/h): 66; but will soon be 80 three days later; from both directions
C-series (intercity 300+ km/h): 128;
D-series (200+ km/h, but could be slower on upgraded lines): 567;

Not high-speed:
Z-series ("non-stop" long-haul express, 160 km/h maximum): 54;
T-series (express, 140 km/h maximum): 281;
K-series (fast, 120 km/h maximum): 1051;
Long-haul (cross-bureau) general fast (not fast at all, but it is the official name): 350;
General fast run within one railway bureau: 284;
General passenger: 296;
Others: ~500; including temporary trains
