Don't know if in China Velaro CN has 5-a-row (as fact sheet says it's as wide as Sapsan), but then again it's different antropometry, likewise in Japan and Taiwan HSR has 5-a-row seating (2+3). This is somewhat an advantage of broader gauge and a wider loading gauge.

I personally prefer Alstom's TGV/AGV with articulated design to Siemens ICE series with classical bogies, even though both have migrated to distributed traction over time.

Velaro CN have 5-a-row. I've sat in one. The train is also physically wider as well.




ALSO. Borad gauge wasn't a historical error, but the Standard Guage was. We should be running on wide tracks.

Russian Railways invested 2.3 billion roubles in its high-speed passenger project between Moscow & St. Petersburg in IH2009.

In the first half of 2009, Russian Railways invested 2.3 billion roubles in its high-speed passenger project between Moscow & St. Petersburg, which is due to begin operations in December 2009. The new service aims to reduce the travel time for passengers between Moscow and St. Petersburg to 3 hours and 45 minutes, cutting the current minimum time from 4 hours 30 minutes.

On 30 July, a high-speed Sapsan train covered the route Moscow - St. Petersburg - Moscow in 3 hours 45 minutes on a test run.

Prior to commencing operations, Russian Railways plans to complete the reconstruction of the route between Kolpino - Tosno, Tosno - Mstinsky Bridge, Mstinsky Bridge - Bologoye and Bologoye - Moscow and upgrade a number of substations.
