不知道国产的怎样才能应用,但愿高速火车不要重蹈运十飞机的覆辙,中国一定要有自己的东西,就算是亏本也要造,锻炼技术和能力,一定要把我们自己的东西发展上去。

The Fastech looks kinda odd, feels kinda heavy in the front.

I still think the JR 500 series is the best looking train in the world.




Second would be the Tsubame, such a beautiful train

Japan's shinkansen are the best looking HSR in the world.

Honestly I think these kinds of trains will be very useful for China since it's a big country.

I'm sure China makes trains. But do they make modern trains that can be used as trams, light rails and metros. Just curious. I'm thinking like so many other things this should be cheaper than ones made in germany or japan. specially if they are basic ones.

Yes they do. China makes their own trains, light rail or trams, locally develop and design ones. Lately they've been doing joint ventures where the first set of trains are shipped from Europe or Japan the rest will be built in China plus the legal technology transfer.

So the trains listed above , those will eventually be made in china as well??? So this will be cheaper in time?

Is anyone familiar with the China National Machinery and Equipment Corp. Apparently our MetroManila North Rail project is getting the train sets from them. Am curious what kind of trains these are. DMU? Are they modern. Pix appreciated. tks.

Those yellow flags are aerobrake. They are used as emergency brake (such as earthquake).
When it is used, breaking distance (360Km/h to 0) near to E2-1000 (275Km/h to 0).

It is on topic considering the Chinese are getting Japanese trains.

BTW, anymore updated pics and what route these trains would served would be nice.
