Anyone info on what kind of "special cargo" those freight trains are transporting? Are they for meeting tunnel clearance requirements or is there some kind of vibration damping?

I think they are things like generators or perhaps refinery equipment- highly specialized equipment that must be shipped partially assembled. The special freight cars are built to spread the weight of heavy loads over many axles, so as to prevent damage to railway track and roadbed.

The axleload limit is 25tonnes in China, so the highest capacity freight cars can only carry 80tonnes at most.

China versus the world

Well, these are my own accounts and as the accounts of the UIC, dated December 31, 2017. In them I separate lines for 250 km/h from the lower speed.



Any clarification, best in each country thread.

Short notes:
Poland: in my knowledge the max operational speed is 200km/h over the CMK line, length is approximately 225km

Russia: in my knowledge St.Peterburg - Moscow the max speed is lowered to 230km/h and this is applicable for a section with length of 15km to 20km. The other parts of the line are allowed up to 160/200/220 km/h. (the main constraints are heavy mixed traffic on the line/restricting maintenance time and old signaling system not providing enough safety)

I would add Finland, the line Kerava - Lahti (length 76km) opened in 2006 has project speed more than 250km/h and operational speed 220km/h.

Thank you!

In Poland I added 80 + 150 + 90 km. It's complicated so I'll check it again.
As for the speed, in some web they spoke of 230 with ETCS 1 on December 14, 2014 but now I only find 200 so it will be like that.

In the Russian case, on the contrary that, for example, in the Northeast Corridor in USA, I wanted to put it among the best lines because of its good average speed (175 km/h, and 194.5 km/h in the 201 km between Bologoe and Chudovo).
But everything is debatable, of course.

In these websites they say that Kerava-Lahti is 63 km, but I did not know, thanks!
