No. Zhengzhou-Xuzhou HSR also covers the two cities but this intercity one mainly serves as commuting train between the two nearby cities of Henan Province.

It's part of the Central Plains Intercity Rail. It's kind of like Wuhan's or Chengdu's. Zhengzhou is the hub and there should be five lines that radiate outwards;

CNR and CSR agree merger terms
31 Dec 2014



CHINA: In a statement to the Shanghai Stock Exchange on December 30, the two state-owned rolling stock manufacturers China CNR Corp and CSR Corp confirmed that they had agreed terms for a merger to create the world’s largest rail vehicle supplier, subject to final ratification by the State Council.

The deal was reportedly finalised at board meetings of the two companies in Beijing on the previous day. Under a draft proposal submitted for approval by the State Council on December 3, CSR would acquire the shares of CNR, which would then be delisted on both the Hong Kong and Shanghai stock exchanges. The combined company would be renamed China Railway Rolling Stock Corp, to be known as CRRC.

Following the final round of negotiations, the companies have agreed that each CNR share will be exchanged for 1·1 shares in CSR. CSR’s Shanghai-traded A shares have been valued at 5·63 yuan against 6·19 yuan for CNR’s while the two companies' Hong Kong shares are priced at HK$7·32 and HK$8·05 respectively. Share prices for both companies rose sharply when trading resumed on December 31, having been suspended since October 27 during the merger negotiations

So now there will be a pure monopoly on rolling stock supply in China?

No different than what's going on before. It's same as AVIC I and AVIC II in the aviation industry, no real benefits or competition derived from the separation, hence got emerged. I suspect same thing will happen to CSSC and CSIC in the shipping industry as well. In the service sector separations seems to work better, such as airliner (though there are some re-mergers from the greatest extent of fragmentation) and telecom operators.

Heavy haul coal line opened
09 Jan 2015



CHINA: The country’s longest dedicated heavy haul coal railway was opened for revenue operation on December 30. According to the Shandong provincial development and reform commission, the completion of the line is important to for China’s energy security. It is also expected to stimulate economic development along the route.

Intended to serve coal producing regions in the western part of Shanxi province, the 1 216 km Shanxi South Central Railway connects Watang in Xingxian county with the port of Rizhao in neighbouring Shandong province, passing close to Jinan, Shijiazhuang and Taiyuan. It has a design capacity of 200 million tonnes a year.

Built at a cost of 106bn yuan, the railway has been developed as a public-private project, in which China Railway Corp holds a 34% stake. The provincially-owned Shanxi Energy & Transport Investment venture announced in 2012 that it was taking a 20% stake in the scheme at a cost of 10·4bn yuan. Bank of China Group contributed 7·5bn yuan, while further funding has been provided by the provincial governments of Henan and Shandong, China Datang Coal Industry Co and China Huadian Corp.

The Shanxi South Central Railway is the second heavy haul coal line in China to be developed as a stand-alone project, following the construction of the Shenmu – Huangha Railway operated by the state-owned Shenhua Group, which serves the nearby Shaanxi province. The original Datong – Qinhuangdao coal railway is run by an in-house CRC subsidiary

Advance tickets add twist to travel
23 January 2015
China Daily Excerpt

Yang Jingwen, a migrant worker in Beijing, is considering returning to her hometown of Xinyang, in Henan province, for Spring Festival by bus instead of train after she failed to book a rail ticket.

"I'm always busy at the end of the year. I don't know the exact time that I can leave the capital, so it's hard for me to book a train ticket for Spring Festival in advance," said the 28-year-old.

Tickets to Xinyang have sold out because passengers can now book train tickets via the Internet and by telephone 60 days in advance, according to Yang.

Under a new policy of China Railway Corp, the rail network regulator, passengers were able to begin buying tickets to return home for Spring Festival on Dec 7. Previously, people were only allowed to buy tickets 20 days in advance.

China Railway said that extending the booking time makes it more convenient for travelers and helps ensure that a large number of people do not all buy tickets in a short period of time.

The longer time period also allows China Railway to decide whether to add trains.

Yang disagreed. She told China Daily that some of her colleagues booked multiple tickets on the Internet for times they might travel home.

"They knew the unused tickets would be refunded without much of a commission fee under the policy, so buying so many tickets could be regarded as a last-ditch move," Yang said.

The rail network regulator said passengers are not required to pay a commission fee for returning tickets 15 days in advance, which allows the tickets to be resold.

The 15-day policy means booking activity will peak from Jan 20 to the beginning of February for the travel rush, which will last from Feb 2 to March 15.

Bicycle baggage consignment

China railways forbade bicycles in carry-on baggage, including folding bicycles.
People travelling with bicycles are directed to use "baggage consignment service".

How good is that "baggage consignment service" in unloading bicycles during the normal 2 minute dwell time of a minor CRH stop?

Since CRH trains don't have baggage cars I'm fairly certain that service is not available.

HXD3a and HXD3e are both new double-BoBo with same driving-cabs as HXD3b. Does anyone know the differences? Only weight (200 and 240 t) and starting effort? Also differences in gear ratio? Also differences in electric equipment?

Why hasn't China built Commuter Rail Networks in its various cities?

Because so far there hasn't been a need. Office workers live within range of the metro. Rich house owners can afford to drive cars everyday. Only in the biggest sprawls like Beijing and SH are commuter trains starting to be built.

I assume the question you are asking is why are some Chinese cities building Urban Rail systems instead of the cheaper alternative Suburban Rail?

Smaller Chinese cities while having smaller populations but have high population densities high land costs etc that make Urban Rail systems the perferred model of transportation.

In larger cities as they expand their networks outwards to outlying areas may find Suburban Rail to be more cost effective especially when connecting to outlying cities. Hence their networks will be a combination of both.
