Thanks elnordico!! Routewise its around 63,000 km and by track length its 110,000 km. Most of the parallel actions are recorded in cities where there are dedicated lines for suburban services and long distance trains. ie In and around Mumbai, Delhi, Kolkata and Chennai. Few are from large junctions. Also thanks to hundreds of railfans!!!!

It's probably those one direction semi transparent window tint commonly found on city bus advertisements. Made of small colored dots so they form a picture on the outside but doesn't block passengers' view from the inside.

A few of Beijing-Shanghai HSR trains over take Shanghai-Nanjing ICL trains.

Beijing-Shanghai HSR G train overtake a freight train.

All found on Youku, the speed could be slow for some, it'd be great if someone can upload some to Youtube.

I agree

Tell me, what's meant by "detectors" written into the description field of the video there: "... Also note the defect detectors in the beginning of the video: tracks one and two announce simultaneously!". Are the announcements made at the level crossing, or must the video launcher be referring to some Web programme tracking trains in real time?
