Wouldn't a maglev line be redundant if the station is also served by ample HSR and metro lines?

I have come across the news today that the first CRH3-based 380km/h series HSR rolling stock - named CRH380A - has rolled off the assembly line, and been introduced to journalists. But it is strange that, although there are photos of the train on the internet, I couldn't find a single shot of its head. I have a feeling there is again some sort of implicit censoring concerning the coverage of the event. But why?

On the following thread in the forum ourail.com, people have reported that

1) the news has been reported on chinese television, and
2) the front-car of CRH380A is different from that of CRH3, indicating that Siemens has made concessions about what the Chinese can modify.

Some photos I have managed to find on the internet:







Please, people with better access to the Chinese media/internet sites, post more photos and information!!!

By the way, I found a still from the tv-program introducing CRH380A with a shot of the head:

Have you actually seen CRH2 and CRH3 before? CRH380A obviously has a body like that of CRH3. And the nose of CRH380A is also quite obviously a modification of that of CRH3. No hybridity going on here.

(don't confuse the CRH3-based CRH380A with the CRH2-based CRH380 shown at the Expo).

At least two aspects in which the CRH380A nose differs from the nose of CRH3/Velaro :

1) CRH380A's nose is flatter;

2) driver's window on CRH380A begins immediately above the part of the nose that houses coupling instruments, whereas with CRH3/Velaro, there is something like half a meter distance between them.

1. Yes I've seen em. In fact I've sat in them as well.

2. Is this the 380A that we're talking about? Because if it is, then the exterior design project was to make a CRH2 train body more aerodynamically efficient by incorporating design elements from the CRH3's, mainly in the frontend.





3. And yes, the train that you've posted in your photos is definately different from the mockup. But the mock up is also certainlly labeled as the CRH380A.

250 version is in service as the CRH-1E.

380 version is still in the pipes.
