I'm slightly disappointed with US7 for two reasons:
- the cladding is not that great
- the dragon's tail is not as slender as in the renderings

that sounds like good news...a high speed train link with shenzhen en guanzhou/canton sound really good.
An possible supertall here should be offcourse over 500m tall IMHO.

Other question is a bit offtopic but how about the stations in Shenzhen and Canton.
In Shenzhen I only have been on that border station. Is that new HST passing that station or is it located at another place/area in Shenzhen...same sort of question comes to mind for Canton also?
