What are these D trains? Shall they stop at all stations?

I doubt there'd be any train stopping at all stations. There will be a total of 30 pairs of D trains between Shanghai and Hangzhou, which will be faster but keep the same price. Top speed of 250 km/h will be enabled because of the new line (previously only 160 km/h was permitted on the classic line), reducing journey time between Shanghai and Hangzhou to 78 - 109 minutes. The fare will be kept at ¥54, though there are speculations the majority of the D trains kept will be the long-distance ones going beyond Hangzhou, meaning availability within the Shanghai and Hangzhou section will be restricted.

The G trains will travel at a top speed of 350 km/h, completing the fastest journey in 45 minutes. The G trains will cost ¥82 (standard class).

At the moment there's no connection between the PDL and the classic line meaning Shanghai Shouth Station will not see any D or G trains in the immediate future.

This is a good website for checking train schedules, Chinese only though.

How many high speed trains daily do now continue from Xiamen-Fuzhou-Wenzhou-Ningbo high-speed railway to old railway through Hangzhou to Shanghai or beyond?

Amazing pictures Jiangwho, thanks for sharing. Especially the ones with two 380s is really nice. (do you have any of these at higher resolution so I can make them desktop pictures?) Hopefully, they will soon finish construction of that elevated line in the pictures

Great photos. But what line is that? I assume that the line is a shared line because we see some "slow" trains on it as well.

Also does anyone have any information on the extensive construction in the background of a number of the pictures?
