This is odd, where I am in Korea old lines run on the left and newer ones on the right. Most of the metro runs on the right, but some lines are also main lines so they go on the left. The KTX goes on the left as parts run on old lines. This is a hangover from Japanese colonial times.

Seems to make sense, the first rail lines were probably laid by the Japanese, which is left-side for both rail and road. Metro lines are generally disconnected from rail lines so they can be right-side.

It is because of Coriolis acceleration

in the northern hemisphere, the train runs in the left rail. In the southern hemisphere, it runs in the right rail.

新华网乌鲁木齐12月12日电 眼下虽然天气寒冷,但在兰新铁路第二双线哈密段的建设现场却是一片热火朝天的景象,目前这一路段已经完成年初计划的166.7%。

在中铁一局兰新高铁项目部三工区施工现场记者看到,哈密立交特大桥的桥墩被套上了彩钢板保温房,混凝土灌装车也穿上了棉衣,三工区党支部书记杨罡说:“进入冬季以后为了保证施工质量,项目部采取了大量的保温措施,投入了大量的资金采购了大量的棉被彩板房,大概到12月底能够完成兰新公司和指挥部的100个墩身的要求。”

兰新铁路第二双线哈密立交特大桥全长19.3公里,建成后可以保障高速铁路在城区安全高速运行,减少占用耕地2万3000多亩,截止至目前已经完成墩身施工80个。同时哈密立交特大桥架梁工作也在有序推进。项目部五工区项目部总工程师陈锐说: “截止到12月9号累计架箱梁40孔量。里程大概是1.3公里长。今年冬季我们计划是要架到80孔。”

兰新铁路第二双线是我国一次性开工里程最长的铁路客运专线,设计最高时速为350公里,预计五年内建成。建成后,现有的兰新铁路复线将以货运为主,输送能力将达到每年4.24亿吨以上。(完)(实习编辑:崔宸熙)

Hi guys I've been looking at the Chinese rail network a bit here and over at ourail.com and I'm wondering... how is capacity defined? Does capacity take into account rolling stock? Does it take into account the types of train and weights? Is their international consensus as to how you calculate capacity?

The more I think about it the more complicated it seems, I'd really appreciate any insight you could provide.

Thanks

It is the total seat count plus reserved area for wheelchairs (only one or two per trainset)

very interested at what their plans are for the 160km/h version. are they looking to replace their currently fleet of loco pulled trains? probably not completely but maybe the express ones?

So the ICLs will use ballastless track? Or will they be sharing tracks with PDLs? 160-200 kph don't really require ballastless track, seems overkill unless there are plans to speed it up in the future? Pic1 and 3 seems to conflict on this matter.

What is the breakdown of cars and seats by class? The images only show 4 abreast seating, but 330 cm wide cars commonly have 5 abreast.

Shall CRH6 include a restaurant car?

seats fomation is 2 2 for 220 km/h trains, for 160 km/h trains,formation is just like metro train. the crh6 is designed for short distance inter-city service, ie guangzhou - zhuhai, zhengzhou - luoyang, etc, so basically, no need for dining car.

CRH1A that now runs Guangzhou-Shenzhen does have dining car and separate first and second class.
