That's VIP compartment, seat face each other. The first class and second class are orientation adjustable.

Haikou--->Sanya 82 minutes(no stop), and 90 minutes(intermediate stop).
A train stop a,c,e,g...station, and B train stop b,d,e,f...staion. that's it.

It will be take you 3 hours from Haikou to Sanya drive by yourself and take 3.5hours by bus. expressway.

Passengers will be too busy trying to get the few remaining tickets to be angry.

This is how MOR officials travel to different parts of China (besides using government planes). DF11Z pulling 25T special RZ cars.

Maybe, It's an extensional plan of Chu Chiang Delta(珠江三角洲) intercity high-speed rail traffic system.

Guangzhou-Zhuhai ICL will be put into operation this month and be going to extend to Macao.

Holy cow, that's five month earlier than any previous announcements, that must be when the trial run starts, and then regular operation starts in October.

it seems that they want regular operation to start in mid-June. The other report mentioned the 4th Beijing-Shanghai conference, so MOR should have been given new instructions. maybe the government wants to have the HSR ready before July 1st. I hope they can make it happen.

High-speed rail linking Beijing, Shanghai to open in June
English.news.cn 2011-01-04 13:55:19

BEIJING, Jan. 4 (Xinhua) -- The Beijing-Shanghai High-Speed Railway will be put into operation by the middle of June this year, Chinese Railways Minister Liu Zhijun said at a conference Tuesday.

The high-speed link connecting the country's two most important cities will open ahead of its original schedule, previously set in 2012.

The construction of the 1,318-km railway was started in April 2008 with total investment estimated at 220.9 billion yuan (around 32.5 billion U.S. dollars).

The railway is expected to cut travel time between Beijing, China's capital in the north, and Shanghai, the country's economic center in the east, to less than five hours, compared with the current 10-hour rail journey.

On Dec. 3, 2010, a China-made CRH380A train set a new speed record of 486.1 km per hour on a test run on the Beijing-Shanghai High-Speed Railway.

Also at the conference, Liu said the combined length of China's operating high-speed railways had reached 8,358 km by the end of 2010.

Total length of high-speed railways would reach 13,000 km by 2011, and 16,000 km by 2015, Liu said.

China plans to invest 700 billion yuan for the construction of railways this year, Liu said.

He said the total length of China's railways had reached 91,000 km by 2010, and the railways would reach 120,000 km in five years.

In 2010, 1.68 billion passenger journeys were conducted through the nation's railways, up 9.9 percent year on year. The railways had also transported 3.63 billion tonnes of goods, up 9.3 percent.

There has been a lot of talk about general passenger high speed trains. But has China made any high speed trainsets exclusively for VIP use?

Yeah Netease doesn't allow hotlinking. Anyway AFAIK MOR VIP Section (铁道部专运处)doesn't operate any CRH trainsets, only diesel electric locomotive pulled 25T (some are rumored to be armored) trains.

Jilin HSR

Does Jilin-Changchun high speed railway carry only local trains, or do any direct trains continue beyond, for Jilin-Shenyang or Jilin-Beijing service?

Bullet train to Beijing to take less than 4 hours
Created: 2011-1-5 1:40:01, Updated: 2011-1-5 1:55:56

A HIGH-SPEED rail link between Shanghai and Beijing will open in mid-June with bullet trains traveling at an average speed of 350 kilometers per hour, the Ministry of Railways said yesterday.

The journey will take less than five hours. Currently, a rail trip between the two cities can take from 10 to 18 hours.

The new high-speed line will link Shanghai's Hongqiao Railway Station and Beijing's South Railway Station.

No ticket prices have been announced but analysts say a reasonable price would put the trains in direct competition with the air service between the two cities. Flights cost around 1,200 yuan with a journey time of about 90 minutes.

Construction of the 1,318-kilometer line is said to have cost 220.9 billion yuan (US$33.4 billion) - the most to have been spent on a single national infrastructure project in China, railway authorities said.

The new line is not only expected to be a boost for passengers traveling between Shanghai and the capital but, more importantly, to strengthen transport capacity in the northern, eastern and middle regions of the country, railway experts said.

The Shanghai-Beijing High-speed Railway will run through Tianjin Municipality and Hebei, Shandong, Anhui and Jiangsu provinces.

A rail trip from Jinan, capital of Shandong Province, to Beijing will be shortened to 1.5 hours compared to between 3 hours 15 minutes and 7 hours at present while the trip to Shanghai will be 3 hours 30 minutes compared to the current 8 to 15 hours.

Bengbu Station in Anhui Province and Xuzhou Station in Jiangsu Province, both major railway traffic hubs and regional exchange centers, will also be among the 24 stops on the new Shanghai-Beijing line.

According to industry analysts, the rail lines between Shanghai and Beijing constitute just 2 percent of the national network in terms of length but handle 10.2 percent of the country's passenger turnover and 7.2 percent of its cargo.

During the early stages of the new service, speeds will be restricted to 300kph, making the journey about 4 hours and 37 minutes, railway authorities said.

Eventually, however, speeds of up to 380kph will be achieved, making the journey just under four hours.

The service will use 16-carriage trains with each train carrying 1,004 passengers. Each train will have a VIP carriage with sleeper chairs that can be laid flat and which feature LCD TV screens.

By the end of last year, China had 8,358 kilometers of high-speed railways in service with 1,200 bullet trains in operation.

Railways Minister Liu Zhijun said the country plans to open another 5,000 kilometers of high-speed lines this year.

He said China would invest another 700 billion yuan in railway construction in 2011 with 70 new projects starting this year, including building 15 new regional high-speed railways and inter-city direct train services. Among the projects is a direct link between Shanghai and Nantong City in Jiangsu Province.
