SHANGHAI, Oct. 26 -- China put another high-speed railway into operation Tuesday morning, which links Shanghai, the country's economic hub, and Hangzhou, capital of east China's Zhejiang Province.

Two bullet trains equipped with China's CRH380A system jumpstarted simultaneously at 9:00 a.m. Tuesday from Shanghai Hongqiao Station and Hangzhou Station, marking the inaugural of the 202-km Shanghai-Hangzhou high-speed railway.

The new railway, with a maximum operational speed of 350 kilometers per hour (kmph), shortens the trip time between the two terminuses to 45 minutes from 78 minutes.

Then I fell asleep in her arms.
That was happiness then.

Yes, but some is erroneous, out of date or unspecific.

Harbin-Dalian PDL - 2011. Which month?
Beijing-Shanghai PDL - now June-October 2011.
Xiamen-Shenzhen PDL - is it on schedule for 1st of January, 2011? This is highly relevant for someone travelling via Hong Kong, since then only Hangzhou-Ningbo would be slow.

Yichang-Wanzhou - to open 20th of November. Is it on schedule?
Guangzhou-Shenzhen high-speed railway - delayed until when?
Longyan-Xiamen railway - 2010. Which month?
Nanchang-Putian railway - 2011. Which month?
Guangzhou-Zhuhai Intercity Mass Rapid Transit - 2010. Which month?
Hainan East Ring Intercity Rail - 30th of November, 2010. Is it on schedule?
Changchun-Jilin Intercity Rail - December 2010. Which day?
Harbin-Qiqihar Intercity Rail - 2011. Which month?

Suzhou station is nice. Noticed there are no supporting columns at the departure area. Amazing.

Those are supposed to be banned. Texting while driving at 350 km/hr is unacceptable.

Is the mobile phone meant for private text messages, or as a backup to other communication systems?

I think the equipments are standard (the 'random' stuff are the train keys and record sheets), that is why it always looks the same. you can also see a walkie-talkie beside the water bottle.

From Shanghai Hongqiao to Hangzhou, RMB 131 for first class and RMB 82 for second class.

btw, I think Guangzhou-Shenzhen is always regarded as the most expensive rail in terms of cost-effectiveness

Actually, Second Class for Guangzhou - Shenzhen is more expensive even though the distance is shorter than Hangzhou - Shanghai. Ironically, the travel time for Hangzhou - Shanghai is much shorter for the longer distance.
