Two HXD1d can be seen:
  1. Windscreen in one part, #unknown.
  2. Windsreen in two parts with central pillar, #0001.
Is one yet selected for serial production?
Of course, the two piece windshield one is the serial production version, the other one is a prototype and rumor says it's ready been scrapped.

Trail collision in Jiamusi

Quote:

BEIJING (AP) — Two passenger trains collided at a railway station in northeast China, injuring at least 24 people, state media said Friday.

The collision occurred Thursday evening at the Jiamusi railway station in Heilongjiang province, the official Xinhua News Agency reported. Station officials reached by phone said they had no information. Officials at the Jiamusi Communist Party Propaganda office said they had not heard about the collision.

Xinhua cited a railway spokesman in the provincial capital as saying most of the injured were preparing to get off a train when the other train collided with it, causing them to fall.

Most of the injuries were slight and five people were under medical observation, Xinhua said, adding that an investigation was under way.

Elsewhere in Heilongjiang, three trucks plunged into a river after a bridge collapsed early Friday, killing three people, Xinhua reported.

Train and road accidents are relatively common in China due to lax safety and maintenance procedures.end of story marker

Sounds like the transfer loco drive was in a hurry and hooked up the car a little too fast.

Is this about HXD2? Or a completely new one?

China develops 10-mln-watt electric locomotive
English.news.cn 2012-08-27 19:25:16
BEIJING, Aug. 27 (Xinhua) -- A major Chinese train maker announced Monday it has developed an electric locomotive with "the world's highest power."

The power, which reaches 10,000 kilowatts, is the world's highest for an electrical locomotive. This compares to the maximum 6,400-kilowatts power for traditional locomotives, according to a spokesman of Datong Electric Locomotive Co., Ltd., maker of the railway vehicle.

The company is a subsidiary of China North Locomotive and Rolling Corp. Ltd. (CNR), the country's second-largest train maker.

Designed with a maximum speed that can reach 120 km per hour, the locomotive can carry an estimated 100 railway carriages each weighing 80 tonnes, more than double that of a traditional locomotive, the spokesman said.

Datong Locomotive has developed six types of large-power electric locomotives and become the first Chinese business to export such products to Europe.

It's Datong so it got to be a variant of the HXD2, probably based on the original HXD2 which never entered MOR service, but rather delivered to Shenhua Group for coal transportation. The ones entered general railway service are HXD2B and 2C, both are considered lower power version of the original.

I found more about this and it is indeed a HXD2 variant. The original tech transfer excluded electronics. Now, Datong installed all Chinese electronic parts so it is all Chinese.

The CoCo HXD2b (CNR - Alstom) is already rated at 10 MW and is on delivering with 500 pieces from 2010 to 201?.
In this case, it is perhaps HXD2d with same performances, but equipped with CNR own electronics.

I believe HXD2B is a 9.6MW loco, and the first batch are all made in France too.

Latest rail map by [email protected], version 20120829 (click to enlarge)



Legend:

The thicker the line, the faster the rail.

And now for a change of pace. Not as fast or luxurious as HSR, but just as or even more fascinating (and more relevant to the daily life of residents of this area):

I apologise: I make confusion with HXD2 (BoBo+BoBo) which has maximal power of 10 MW and continuous power at 9,6MW.
As I know, the first batch of 10 HXD2b was made in France, the other 490 are to be built in China, but it had perhaps changed.

A picture, as big as a stamp!

Found by Railway Gazette

I try with a better one, if it works...

Some design variant in driver'cab! Electronic is China own development during decades (in etymology sense = some ten of days? But perhaps in english has decades another sense.)

Nice one, vast majority of the original HXD2's design features are retained.

China hikes rail spending target

Updated: 2012-09-05

By Sophie He (China Daily)

Quote:
The Ministry of Railways has raised its target for railway construction spending this year to 496 billion yuan ($78 billion) from 470 billion yuan in a move seen as part of the government's latest efforts to shore up the slowing economy.

"The investment on new railways will be at least 67 billion yuan a month from September till the end of this year," China Railway Group's President Bai Zhongren told a news conference in Hong Kong on Tuesday.

... ...

China Railway Group, the country's leading heavy infrastructure company, posted a decline in its first half net profit as the country spent less on building new railway lines.

"I can tell you for sure that the second half of this year will be better than the first-half (for China Railway Group)," Bai said.

During the first half of 2012, the company’s new infrastructure construction contracts was 200.72 billion yuan, up 13.36 percent year-on-year; by the end of June, the company's backlog of infrastructure construction contracts was 937.34 billion yuan, 4.3 percent more than it had at the end of last year.

There is also HXD2 7001 and 7002, with horizontal arranged frontlights (no real pictures found yet).
Do somebody know the differences in power electronics design?

I found one:

Real design is different as graphics! On a different pictures I received, it can be seen that windscreen is in two parts, with central pillar.
Perhaps an illusion induced by the picture: frame and body seems longer as original HXD2.

Does China have any commuter rail that isn't a metro?

And by that, I mean analogous to:

The services in the south of London
Yamanote sen et. al. in Tokyo
Cityrail in Sydney

I don't think I've ever seen anything of that kind and wondered if it even existed
