广州南站高铁电网发生故障 列车异响乘客疏散
2011-01-24 08:04 南方日报 网友评论 2 条,点击查看 我有话说
南方日报讯 (见习记者/钟啸 记者/彭国华)记者从广铁集团获悉,昨日16:10,广州南站17道接触电网发生故障,导致G1018次列车受电弓与电网接触时出现异响。为确保安全,铁路部门及时组织该趟列车旅客转乘了备用列车,于50分钟后开出。

事件发生后,铁路技术人员已迅速组织力量排查原因,于17时20分排除了故障。广铁集团表示,故障的原因尚在分析当中,对于类似情况,南站已经制定了相应的预案进行应对。

受此次故障影响,后续的10趟高铁列车也出现10至30分钟不同程度的晚点。广州南站已通过广播、电子屏,向旅客解释晚点原因并致歉,并增派了工作人员负责乘车引导工作。

车顶两声爆响 高铁乘客疏散

南方日报讯 (记者/蒋哲)昨日下午,广州南站一列停靠在站台上的和谐号动车组顶部电架结构突然发生两声爆响,当即火花四溅。

昨天下午5点,记者赶到现场时,滞留在候车厅的G1018次旅客已经改从另一个站台登上另一列火车全数出发,检票口的检票员向记者证实,这群旅客出发时已将近5点。从候车厅的检票口可以清晰看到,事发列车仍停靠在A16/A17站台上,车厢顶部的电架已完全放下,与顶上横越的电线脱离,一些工程人员正在列车周围进行紧张的抢修作业。

据记者询问,候车厅里许多旅客都听到列车的两声爆响,但当时并未引起惊慌。准备回长沙过年的张先生描述,“爆响的声音就像电流短路时一样,砰砰两声,随后就没有动静,也没有烟雾,应该不是爆炸,很可能是机械故障,所以我们也不怕。”晚上8点多,记者从高铁客服热线了解到,乘客换乘后的G1018次火车已经平安到达武汉站。

微博网友“无竹居”昨天正好乘坐此车前往武汉,他在微博上直播了事故的全过程。据他描述,乘务员引导大家迅速撤出车厢。事故发生后,包括“无竹居”在内的G1018次的所有乘客均被工作人员引导至其他站台,因为列车延误,有一些旅客情绪比较激动。

Has there been a precedent of such occurences in other HSR lines across the world?

A backup train is a different train that came to take the stranded passengers, it's likely that they's shut the platform for a day or two to investigate.

I don't know on any HSR lines, but the piss-poor quality of electrification on the UK's east coast mainline means bits of that are blowing up and getting torn down it seems every few months.

I would guess the problem started at the substation, a voltage anomaly caused an arch flash explosion when then pantograph is about to make contact with the overhead wire. As long as no other trains were raising the pantograph at the same time, and the problem was corrected, the damage should be confined to this train and that section of the wire only.

China's railway network developing fast
27 January 2011
Copyright 2011 China Daily Information Company. All Rights Reserved.

China's railway network, already the world's longest, is developing at record high speed and is to be doubled soon.

"China's goal is to connect all important cities with railway lines,"

Collaborating with German Siemens, Japanese Kawasaki and Bombardier both in Canada and Sweden, China has built its own high-speed train CRH380A that can reach 486 kilometers per hour, cutting the journey between Beijing and Shanghai in half to about four hours.

Construction of the high-speed railway network will also cover inland China. It aims to encourage more investment to move from coastal areas to inland China and ultimately raise the living standards in those regions.

Within the next five years, a total of 3.5 trillion yuan ($532 billion) will be invested in high-speed track construction and train manufacturing, averaging at about 700 billion yuan ($106 billion dollars) each year.

Swedish companies such as Atlas Copco, SKF and Trelleborg have participated in China's railway and high-speed train development.

Hans Rosling, a development expert and also professor at Karolinska Institutet in Sweden, was quoted as saying that the construction of the high-speed railway network will bring about "good economy, good education, good medical care, better and longer life, all good things."

It's happened with a Eurostar on HS1 and I've heard of it in France too. But they were moving.

So, what should the network be like at the end of 2011?
Beijing-Tianjin West-Jinan-Nanjing-Shanghai, to open in mid-June, 380 km/h.
A branch from Jinan to Qingdao, already open, 250 km/h
Shanghai-Hangzhou, 350 km/h, opened in October 2010.
Hangzhou-Ningbo, 350 km/h - which month shall it open?
Ningbo-Wenzhou-Fuzhou-Xiamen, already open, 250 km/h.
Xiamen-Shenzhen, 250 km/h - which month shall it open?
Shenzhen-Guangzhou, 350 km/h - which month shall it open?
Guangzhou-Wuhan, 350 km/h - already open
Crosslink Wuhan-Hefei-Nanjing, 250 km/h - already open
Wuhan-Zhengzhou-Shijiazhuang-Beijing - shall it open in 2012 or be completed in 2011? And shall it have speed 350 km/h like Wuhan-Guangzhou, or 380 km/h like Shanghai-Beijing?
Branch line Zhengzhou-Xian, already open, 350 km/h.
Branch line Shijiazhuang-Taiyuan, already open, 250 km/h.
Beijing-Qinhuangdao-Shenyang, already open, 250 km/h.
Dalian-Shenyang-Changchun-Harbin, 350 km/h - which month shall it open?

Easy Ring?
I thought about it, but it does not seem to be part of network. No high speed railway to Haian. I think there is something in Sichuan and something in Yunnan, too, but again not connected to network.

I know that there is 250 km/h railway now Qinhuangdao-Shenyang, but is there any high-speed railway Beijing-Qinhuangdao?

Well, it's technically connected to the national wide network through the railway ferry. Many other HSR lines you have mentioned are connected to other HSR lines via conventional railway too. East Ring connects Sanya and Haikou, and when West Ring finishes a loop line will be formed.

Yes, slow speed railway.

I was wondering about high-speed railway network, that is high-speed railways that are connected through high-speed railways and not through slow-speed railways.

I see what you mean, that's probably why you didn't list Chengdu-Chongqing neither, because it's connected to the rest of the HSR network via conventional lines.

That's the Futian - Guangzhou South line? Where is the station in Futian anyway? Is it near the HK checkpoint?

Yes that's the line, here is Futian Station's location is:

福田站是一个建筑中的铁路车站,位于中国广东省深圳市福田区,福中三路至深南大道之间沿益田路南北向布置。该车站交汇广深港高速铁路、广深城际轨道交通、深惠城际线、深江城际线、深圳地铁蛇口线、龙岗线、11号线和14号线,届时可能成为中国大陆首个地下城际列车站。

Looks like it's near the Carrefour @ Huizhan Zhongxin station.
