Another rail official held in corruption probe
(Shanghai Daily/SINA, May 17)


Quote:
A Hohhot Railway Bureau official in north China's Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region is being probed by disciplinary inspectors as the anti-graft investigation widens in the railway sector.

Liu Biao, a deputy director in the bureau, is suspected of engaging in illegal trade of rail carriages and project subcontracting, an insider with the bureau told The 21st Century Business Herald.

Liu hasn't shown up in his office for more than one month and he has been substituted by someone else, the insider said.

Since the former railway minister Liu Zhijun was arrested last February for severe violation of discipline, several senior railway officials have been investigated for corruption, the report said

China Rail Investment Down 48.3% In First 4 Months

Wednesday 2012-05-16 Publisher: CapitalVue

A metro line in Hainan

May 16 -- Fixed-asset investment in China's railway sector dropped 48.3 percent year-on-year to 89.6 billion yuan during the first four months, of which investment in railway infrastructure accounted for 71.71 billion yuan, down 54.1 percent, reports Oriental Morning Post, citing the Ministry of Railways yesterday.

According to a Shenyin Wanguo Securities report, the government has announced several times its intention to continue investing in the railway sector after the greater than expected slowdown in economic growth.

The brokerage expects investment in the railway sector will hit 500 billion yuan in 2012, of which 400 billion yuan will be invested in railway infrastructure construction.

A total of 6,366 kilometers of new rail tracks will be put into operations this year, including 3,500 kilometers of high-speed rail lines.

Lines to be built over the next 2-3 years will increase demand for rail equipment, and tenders for EMUs are expected to re-start.

The Ministry of Railways announced on May 14 it will issue 20 billion yuan worth of short-term bills on the interbank market on May 17.

In the first quarter, the ministry raised 30 billion yuan through the issuance of debt over two phases.

Shares of CNR Corporation (601299) fell 2.11 percent to close at 4.17 yuan per share today.

Well I don't think diesel trains will be completely phased out, there are a number of long lines that are simply too expensive to electrify, such as the Tibet railway. I think the eventual electrification rate will hit somewhere around 75%.

Railways investment down during Jan-April

Railways investment down during Jan-April
Updated: 2012-05-17 09:12
(Xinhua)


BEIJING - Investment in China's railways saw a significant drop in the first four months of the year, new data from the Ministry of Railways (MOR) showed.

Fixed-asset investment in Chinese railways decreased 48.3 percent from a year earlier to 89.6 billion yuan ($14.2 billion) during the January-April period, among which investment in infrastructure shed 54.1 percent to 71.71 billion yuan, according to the MOR.

The MOR planned to invest 500 billion yuan in railway fixed assets for the whole year, including 400 billion yuan on infrastructure.

After years of torrid growth, construction and investment in China's railways cooled remarkably in the wake of a train crash last July that left 40 people dead and 172 injured.

But construction has gradually picked up pace since the fourth quarter of last year, as the government moved to boost financial support to the sector to guarantee the progression of major projects.

According to Wang Mengshu, chief engineer of the China Railway Tunnel Group, 80 percent of the halted projects have resumed construction and, with more government-channeled funds this year, investment will gain momentum in the coming months.

When the West Ring HSR shall be completed, the rebellious province of Taiwan, population 23 millions, 2011 GDP over 466 milliard US$, shall have a HSR only along west coast and not on the other coast, while the loyal province of Hainan, population 8,7 millions, 2011 GDP under 39 milliard US$, shall have a full ring of HSR around both sides.

Chinese Stocks Rise on Premier Wen’s Comments, Led by Rail

Rail Stocks

“While there are legitimate economic concerns about China, the elephant in the room is the European sovereign situation,” Lewis Kaufman, a Santa Fe, New Mexico-based money manager at Thornburg Investment Management, who helps manage $79 billion, said in a phone interview. “It’s a difficult environment for risk markets, which means emerging markets including China.”

China CNR gained 4.1 percent to 4.33 yuan after the 21st Century Business Herald reported the railway ministry obtained a tentative credit line of more than 2 trillion yuan from banks. CSR Corp. advanced 4.3 percent to 4.87 yuan.

The government may further ease credit supply, start more projects, spend more on social welfare and quicken construction of social housing and infrastructure, especially in railway, subway, urban transit, water system and power grid, according to the Bank of America report.

Locomotive exports boost CNR shares
(Shanghai Daily, May 21)


Quote:
BEIJING, May 21 (Xinhua) -- Shares of China North Locomotive and Rolling Corp. Ltd. (CNR), the nation's second-largest train maker, gained Monday after delivery of two electric locomotives to Belarus. They will be the first Chinese electric locomotives on the European rail network.

The company's share prices jumped 2.88 percent to 4.28 yuan (0.68 U.S. dollars) on the Shanghai bourse.

The two locomotives are the first batch of 12 electric locomotives imported by Belarus from China and will be put into commercial operation after the empty-loading commissioning and trial running on Belarusian lines, CNR said in a statement on its website.

The remaining 10 locomotives will be delivered by CNR Datong Electric Locomotive Company Limited by the end of the year, it said.

According to an agreement signed in 2010, Belarus will buy 12 electric locomotives from CNR for around 700 million yuan in total.

Well, they haven't poped-up on 1520 railfan web-sites/communities, so I suppose they haven't arrived yet
