What version is it? Last time I waited for hours loading an English titled version, and it turned out to be in Russian....

BTW, this thread should be merged to Chinese HSR thread.

CHINA | Beijing-Shanghai High Speed Railway

Chinese HSR rail system has attracted some discussion, the general thread on high speed railways is 43 pages and there already is a separate thread for high speed trainsets which also is 32 pages. Since Beijing-Shanghai high speed line is so important, I inquired if it could merit a separate thread and heard no objections.

On topic. It was proposed quite some time ago that the line could be opened in June. Then it was widely doubted, and the opening was said to be in September before 1st of October. But now the opening in mid-June is officially confirmed.

The line, 1305 km, is planned for 380 km/h movement. But initially after opening, the speed would be restricted and the trip time would be 4:37.

No. But my point is, we tried to get all in one thread, and all of them are too big. There are already separate threads for high speed rail generally and high speed trainsets, both too big - next thing that seemed plausible to do was try a separate thread for probably the most important single project.

Single project for China. So every high speed line that is an important project for a country should get it's own thread.

Most countries do not attract such a mass of news to justify separating high speed rail from other rail, let alone dividing it into smaller fields. China does, and it is difficult to find sensible fields to divide the news into. Making a separate thread for the single project that looks likely to have most volume makes sense because in case of China, other threads are already too busy.

Haven't you watched "World's fastest railway line - Beijing-Shanghai high speed railway line" and "World's highest railway line - Qinghai-Lhasa railway line"??

I guess HK Chek Lap Kok was also one episode, at least in a similar document. Bird's nest as well.

I'd say a $33billion project is justified having it's own thread

I just finished watching it. Great documentary, thanks a lot for sharing.


They didnt talk that much about the railway station and high speed rail tough. Foundation is amazing, I didnt know it was that deep.

From
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Beijing...-Speed_Railway
I find 2 contradicting lists, one with 19 between and one with 20 between.
The difference being that the list with 20 stations includes Tengzhou East.

Check the Chinese version of wiki note instead. English version is outdated and inaccurate.
There are 24 stations on Beijing-Shanghai HSR. The other three stations are Shandong Tengzhou East, Anhui Dingyuan Qinggang and Jiangsu Danyang North.
