An inter-city high-speed rail in central China's Hunan Province has opened for test run. The 95.5km-long railway will reduce travel time between Changsha, Zhuzhou and Xiangtan to less than half an hour. One third of stations along the line are built underground. It's expected to enter into service before the end of this month.

The red section more or less follows the old slow speed railways. The orange section is a new underground alignment that will most likely evolve into sort of a passante tunnel for regional commuter services to feed into.

More or less, or exactly? How many stations does the old slow speed railway have?

The first four stops going south from Changsha station are also on a new underground alignment.

I don't know, whether this true or not, but apparently Phase 2 of Changsha–Zhuzhou–Xiangtan intercity railway opened on 26th December:

It's true. And there is even a connection to the subway (Line 1) at Kaifu Temple station.

And now it's clear that the authorities goofed on the western terminus of this extended rail line.

It is called Changsha West (Changshaxi station).

And the name on the doors is correct in English and Chinese:

However, platform incorrectly says Changsha station in English:
