These numbers are huge. I dont know any official figures but Chinese market might be larger than rest of the world put together for "after 2008 period" especially for 2010.

China’s coal transport pattern may change by 2013

2010-12-24
energychinaforum.com

China’s rail capacity for coal shipment may be eased by 2013 with expansion on rail lines and construction of more power grid, China Securities Journal reported. Presently, China’s coal supply is still being constrained by limited rail transport capacity, and effective coal production capacity could only increase at a lower rate than actual growth in production capacity. Few rail lines connecting coal-rich areas in Shanxi, Shaanxi and western Inner Mongolia to central, southern and southwestern China has been the main factor for the tight supply in central and southern China.

From Jan to Nov of 2010, China’s railways transported a total of 1.827 billion tonnes of coal, a year-on-year rise of 15.3%. Newly added coal rail capacity in main production areas is expected to increase 230 million tonnes in 2010, the report said. In the next two year, the increase of China’s rail capacity would depend on capacity expansion of Daqin (Datong-Qinhuangdao) and Shuohuang (Shuozhou-Huanghua port) rail lines. Coal transport capacity of Daqin Line would reach 410-420 million tonnes by the end of 2010 and further increas to 450 million tonnes by 2011, according to the report. And, Shuohuang Line will expand its coal capacity to 350 million tonnes, but would be mainly determined by coal handling at Huanghua port, it said.

Meanwhile, the single transport pattern would be replaced by both coal shipment and power transmission. Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region hopes the central government to construct at least three ultra-high voltage power transmission lines in the region during the 12th Five-Year plan (2011-2015). This could transmit 30-million-kilowatt power to the other provinces, equivalent to 100 million tonnes of coal. Shanxi also plans to transport 30-million-kilowatt power to the outside through ultra-high voltage power transmission lines, which would consume 50 million tonnes of raw coal.

I'm guessing this is a suburban/commuter rail type line that would probably use those CRH6 trains? In addition to the Jinshan line, I love how Shanghai is actually building suburban rail sneakily instead of having a comprehensive integrated S-train system the way Beijing does. Makes its development more organic in a way.

WORK on a direct railway link between Shanghai and Nantong in neighboring Jiangsu Province is expected to start early next year - cutting the journey time from five hours to barely 60 minutes.

The 250-kilometer link will connect the cities directly by a railway bridge over the Yangtze River. Its construction has just been approved.

Vehicles will also be able to use the bridge, according to Nantong railway authorities.

At the moment, most people take buses to Nantong, in the north of Jiangsu, as there's no direct railway route between Shanghai and the city. People have to transfer in Nanjing if they want to travel by train, meaning a journey of around five hours.

The direct railway, designed with a traveling speed of about 200 kilometers per hour, will cost an estimated 48.68 billion yuan (US$7.50 billion), and tickets will be priced at about 70 yuan, Shanghai Evening Post reported yesterday.

Meanwhile, bullet trains will be available to rail travelers by next month along the Shanghai-Sichuan and Shanghai-Chongqing routes, rail authorities said.

The fast train services are expected to cut the journey from more than 25 hours to about 15 hours.

One service will be based at city's Hongqiao Railway Station. Each train carries around 600 passengers.

200 km/h suburban railway is pretty good!

Congratulations to GE.
GE is definitely one of the most advanced internal combustion locomotive makers in the world, so far there is still no domestic replacement for its NJ2 locos on the Qinghai-Tibet line.

If there are members from ourail.com here, couldn't they themselves post those "wonderful pictures"?

IBM came to the same conclusion. That's why they built their Global Rail Innovation Center in Beijing

the invitation registration thing was fine to me, but they should allow guests to view their forum posts like before. well, it is a private forum, I guess they have all the right to do whatever they want.

Nantong is much closer to Shanghai than 250km. Looking at Google maps, the trip by car from Nantong city centre, through (already build) Yangtze bridge, to Shanghai Hongqiao is... 103km. Also Nantong is in the south of Jiangsu, not north, unless I cannot find that town on the map. Can anyone clarify this information???

main line of Nantong-Shanghai rail is from Pingdongzhen, Nantong to Situanzhen, Shanghai. There is also a branch line from Taicang to Anting, Shanghai as well. google maps would then tell you that the total length of 248.9 km does make sense (although no way it is going to be precise, for the rail route differs a lot from usual car trip route).

Nantong is traditionally thought to be in the north of Jiangsu, because it is at the north bank of the Yangtze river.
