You know, not every figment of your (often poor) imagination is a "fact"

And it shares such major characteristics as the aerodynamic front. Just open a picture of an E2 train and CRH380A to see the similarities.

CRH2 (design is virtually identical to E2 Series)


CRH380A looks better but doesn't change the fact that they share some major visual characteristics and indeed both look very "Japanese".

Now I'm not saying that this is good or bad or anything. I'm just stating this as a matter of fact because it is obvious even by looking at the photos.

Anyway, I'm not continuing on that because, frankly, I don't care and not going to waste my time on discussing such completely irrelevant details.
Isn't Japanese one having flatter and fat nose compare to chinese one?

As China and Japan share quite a bit a cultural similarities, I think it's natual to have a similar concept of esthetics just like Europeans share a similar concepts on many things.

There is no overhead lines at the top. Where does the train acquire power?

I also found that there is no diesel-electric locomotive push/pulling the
train out of the ferry. Just look at these 2 ICE3s.

Could be these trains use batteries to store power?

It's not ICE3, it's ICE T (tilting ICE). And could it be that it's actually an ICE TD i.e. diesel version of ICE T?

Like this:



No bridge or tunnel across Qiongzhou Strait, the train has to be split into two four-car sets and ferry to Hainan Island.

The train ferry across the Strait is a matter of routine, as 18-car passenger trains run between Beijing/Shanghai/Guangzhou and Sanya every day.

New information on the new Xi'an Railway Station. Thanks to Zhang Xu. CRIEnglish.com
Quote:
Xi'an North Station, the high-speed rail hub of Xi'an city in northwest China, will partly open its doors in December prior to the completion of the whole project, which is expected to come online by July 2011. The general director of the station project made the announcement to CRI in Xi'an on Monday.

The director Zhang Jiahua said that the project, which started in September 2008, will open eight of its platforms and fifteen of its tracks by the end of this year. By this time the Zhengzhou-Xi'an high-speed trains will also stop at the station, which is being constructed in Xi��an��s new economic district.

Apart from the main hall, which is designed in a style combining architectural features from the Tang and Han Dynasties, the building��s other three floors are all underground. These will cater for passengers getting to and from the platforms and transferring to the city��s first ever subway line.

Zhang revealed that after the whole station, which boasts eighteen platforms and thirty four tracks, is finished the five high-speed railways linking Xi'an with west China's Lanzou, Chengdu, Datong, Yinchuan, and other cities in Guanzhong area will also pass through the building.
*My emphasis. This confirms both greenlion's figures for Xi'an North when it's finished, and wharton2010's analysis that only eight platforms are being built initially. Looking at the Google Earth image, it looks like they're going to have to expand the superstructure considerably to more than double the number of platforms. I wonder how they plan to do that since the architecture seems to be very distinctive in its current size.











Looking good!
