Will Etihad do a bacon sandwich for that price? I didn't think so.

tullamarine I don't think Etihad (or Emirates for that matter) will do a bacon sandwich at any price!!! Qantas customers on Sydney/Melbourne-London lost bacon from the breakfast menu following the Emirates alliance.

BaconButty I finally understand the true horrors of globalization.

China sells 10 bullet trains to Malaysia

CHANGSHA: China's CSR Zhuzhou Electric Locomotive has sold 10 inter-city bullet trains to Malaysia, the company announced Saturday.

The trains, with 4G network coverage and eco-friendly equipment, will be used on a 900-km railway in Malaysia, China's Xinhua news agency quoted the train manufacturer as saying.

The trains will run at an average speed between 140 to 160km per hour.

The first train is scheduled to be delivered in two years, and the rest nine months later, according to the agreement.

CSR Zhuzhou Electric Locomotive sold 38 bullet trains to Malaysia in 2010, which was the first export of Made-in-China bullet trains.- Bernama

The model looks like a CRH380A. Would love to see a normal gauge highspeed train running on metergauge

That would severely curtailing its performance. Not to mention reducing its top speed by half.

I suspect they will be based on the CRH 6 trains. Why? I don't really have an idea. Except that black window stripe that is quite similar. Obviously this makes no sense... lol

If I am not mistaken $8 million per carriage, so 40 million bucks per train. Same price as the 5 Marubeni trains bought for $200 million.

Should arrive by August 2015. The CSR Class 92 and Marubeni intercity trains also took two years to deliver. CSR was punctual is delivering . They have delivered 38 six carriage trains on time two years ago, another 10 should be OK.

Please note, CSR has opened an assembly plant in Malaysia, hence CSR has an advantage as they are investing in Malaysia. Plus, the deal with the 38 trains has proven their reliability. So far no complains on the trains in terms of break downs, smooth as any Made in China Iphone .
