network construction have yet to be compeleted. Service schedules are set to change accordingly as construction progresses.

Current regular lines are set to take on increasing freight traffic as passangers are diverted towards the newer highspeed lines.

This is a severe shortage of high-speed train-set at this point. All the rolling stock manufacturers are racing the clock to build more high speed trains. The new trains with higher-speed (> 350 kmh) is still in the development stage. There is no point to run the high-speed trains on the crowded conventional tracks.

The majority of the high-speed rail network is still under construction. The train stations for most if not all cities will be newly-built. Even Xian's and Zhengzhou's new high-speed train stations are still under construction and won't be completed until next year.

No, the train does not need to slow down while passing the station, I remember we passed Changsha station with the speed of 340km/h, almost top speed of the train (which was 345km/h for the express train that I took). I will upload my pictures soon.

Apparently yes
Well I guess they are supposed to serve the new HSR lines that are not yet ready as well.

It seems that most of these stations are all build along the same pattern; A passenger concourse in the middle above the tracks, with stairs leading down to them. However the tracks are almost always elevated. Wouldn't it make more sense to have the passenger concourse below the tracks? That way it can be a lot bigger, and you can have more stairs leading up to the platforms. For 400m long platforms having something like 4 sets of stairs would be quite convenient.

1. Cheaper to build up than down
2. Grand terminal above ground look better from the outside.
3. Above grade building allows for higher ceilings -> better passanger comfort
4. it's a cultural thing. The Chinese doesn't like to go underground unless they have no other choice
5. It's a political thing. New train stations are major investments and infrastructural projects -> political achievements and accomplishments. The politicians like it better when the people can actually "see" the results.
6. Bragging rights. Sorta easier to show people how awsome you are than to have them imagine it.

But the tracks are elevated. This would mean that the passenger concourse could be at ground level, not underground. And you can still have an impressive station that way. Lots of examples of that in Europe.

The terminal buildings are often 5 stories tall. There are certain ineffeciencies in raising 20 tracks & platforms to that height in the middle of the city.

But I understand your point.
