China Railway Group 3rd-Quarter Net Profit CNY2.14 Bln
29 October 2010

HONG KONG (Dow Jones)--China Railway Group Ltd. (0390.HK) said Friday its third-quarter net profit rose 17% from a year earlier, supported by a pickup in infrastructure development after Beijing's economic stimulus measures.

The Hong Kong- and Shanghai-listed company said its net profit for the three months ended Sept. 30 totaled CNY2.14 billion, according to Chinese accounting standards, up from CNY1.84 billion a year earlier.

Revenue rose 9.2% to CNY102.04 billion from CNY93.46 billion.

State-run China Railway, which competes with China Railway Construction Corp. Ltd. (1186.HK) and China Communications Construction Co. Ltd. (1800.HK), is China's largest construction contractor by revenue.

It has built more than two-thirds of China's 80,000 kilometers of railway, and 95% of the country's electrified railway lines. It also builds expressways, bridges and tunnels.

If you look at the amount of infrastructure projects, its revenue is rather small.

Patrick Kron (left), Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Alstom and newly appointed Alstom China President, Dominique Pouliquen in China,

Alstom appointed it's new China president in september, on October 20, Patrick Kron visited china.

Chinese news and a interview with Patrick kron.

http://www.eeo.com.cn/industry/shipp...0/183193.shtml.

most interesting news is, though it's not reported by public media, he visited Chinese MOR, Rumor says Alstom & MOR tend to develope new series of 380 trains for Northeast China lines, as the CRH5 is currently serving well in North China & Northeast.

Chinese MOR had offered 110 trainset of CRH5A so far, more than CRH1A (80 ordered) & CRH2A (80 ordered), as 8-car 250km/h trainset.equal to a combination of CRH2A/B/E (110 sets), less than combination of CRH1A/B/E

another news is US industrial group ITT Corp had won a series of contracts from China’s high-speed rail market, with total value of more than $30 million. It will supply connectors, VIP seating actuation systems, shock absorbers, pump systems and other products for China’s high-speed trains.

When, in December 2011, Dalian-Shenyang-Harbin high-speed railway shall open, shall there be any trains suitable for 350 km/h service in Northeast China?

That is a Big News. For the completion of Beijing-Guangzhou High Speed Railway used to be planned for 2012 - now it is brought forward to 2011.

In December 2011, high speed railway shall be complete from Beijing through Shijiazhuang, Zhengzhou, Wuhan and Guangzhou to Shenzhen. How long shall it take to travel all the way?

China's high speed rail

Beijing puts all its muscle into building a massive, state-of-the-art high-speed railroad network

Photographs for TIME by Michael Christopher Brown

Read more: http://www.time.com/time/photogaller...#ixzz141etcCaK



Engine of Growth
In the past three decades, China has more than doubled the mileage of new track in its railroad system. In the coming year, it will spend $120 billion on the construction of new lines, many of which will handle high-speed rail.



Terminal
The system offers a vast improvement over the aging, traditional rail network, which was known for being filthy and overcrowded.



Need for Speed (picture CRH2C)
Railroad authorities have focused intently on upgrading the system's speed. In July 2010, the fastest train (CRH380A) to date — it can travel as fast as 220 m.p.h. (355 km/h) — went into service, linking Shanghai to Suzhou and Nanjing. By comparison, Japan's fastest train reaches speeds of just 160 m.p.h. (260 km/h), while the Acela, America's fastest rail link, averages an anemic 72 m.p.h. (116 km/h).



Vast Land
Critics of the system complain that high-speed rail poorly serves the country. They say that most Chinese, especially the vast rural population, travel infrequently and are perfectly content to pay less for slower service.



Market
Still, the Chinese middle class is growing rapidly, and the service has created a new class of intercity commuters. In this photo, passengers wait to board high-speed trains leaving the railway station in Suzhou, pop. almost 6 million.



Tickets
Passengers buy tickets for high-speed trains leaving Shanghai Hongqiao Railway Station. The machines have instructions in both Chinese and English.



On Board
A train operator and two train officials sit in front of the first-class cabin, en route to Suzhou.



Well-Traveled
The Shanghai-Nanjing route is one of the busiest railway corridors on earth.



Reflected
The new trains have reduced the travel time between Shanghai and Nanjing from two hours to 73 minutes, with nonstop service.



Work in Progress
Fewer than half of the railway lines entering the Shanghai Hongqiao Railway Station are currently in operation.



Memories
Travelers photograph themselves in front of the new train (CRH3C).



Window on the Future
Chinese officials say the current high-speed rail network is only the beginning. The domestic system will continue to expand, while Chinese firms will participate in constructing rail projects in Saudi Arabia, Venezuela and Turkey. There are also reports that Beijing wants to build a high-speed link between China and Europe.

Which would spend a day.

On Beijing-Shanghai old railway limited to 200 km/h, which takes 10 hours, there are CRH sleeper trains in service, which are popular and depart at 5 minute intervals.

Are the Chinese building any sleeper trains capable of sustaining 350 km/h for 8 hours, that would be ready for service by December 2011?

I don't think so. 8hours just means everyone doesn't get enough sleep, whereas 10hours is about right.
