Top pic is a great shot - with a pusher loco on the far side track. You can just see the single loco at the head of that train in green and white like the near one.

Railway guards protect passengers against danger



Four men have kept patrolling in a railway tunnel in south China for more than 1,500 days! They helped prevent water and sand gushing disasters and ensure safety for passengers.

China Railway sets out 2017 targets

http://www.railjournal.com/index.php...7-targets.html

CHINA Railway (CRC), the state-owned national operator, has been appropriated a Yuan 800bn ($US 115.13bn) budget for 2017 as it pushes ahead with network and service expansion following a record-breaking 2016.

The budget announcement, which is the same as 2016, was made during a China Railway Work conference held in Beijing on January 3 and will support the construction of 2100km of new main line railway, 2500km of track-doubling and electrification of 4000km of railway during the year 2017.

This work follows the completion of Yuan 801.5bn of investments in 2016, including the opening of 3281km of new main line railway. In 2016 the network carried a record 2.7 billion passengers, an increase of 11.2% year-on-year, with 1.44 billion of these trips on its high-speed network, which now exceeds 20,000km. Internet tickets accounted for 60% of total sales, with mobile phone tickets accounting for 40% of the total.

Chinese rail freight volumes amounted to 2.65 billion tonnes, with intermodal (40%), automotive goods (53%) and bulk freight (25%) reporting substantial increases. There was also particular growth in trains travelling to and from Europe, with 1702 trains travelling from China, an increase of 109%, and 572 making the return journey, an increase of 116%.

In 2017, passenger traffic is expected to increase to 3.025 billion passengers, and rail freight volumes to 2.75 billion tonnes or 34.55 trillion tonne-km.

China-Kazakhstan grain passage opens
Shenzhen Daily
February 6th, 2017




A train carrying 720 tons of wheat from Kazakhstan reaches a logistic base in Lianyungang City, Jiangsu Province, yesterday. The wheat will be transferred to a ship and head for Vietnam. This is the first wheat shipment from Kazakhstan to be sent to Southeast Asia via China, marking the opening of the China-Kazakhstan grain passage. In this way, Kazakhstan wheat will be sold in Southeast Asia at lower prices than that from Australia and with shorter delivery times.

China to start construction on 35 new railway projects in 2017

http://news.xinhuanet.com/english/20..._136068507.htm

BEIJING, Feb. 19 (Xinhua) -- It is full steam ahead for China's railway sector as construction on 35 new railway projects will start in 2017 as the country plans to expand the network, according to a recent report in Xinhua-run Economic Information Daily.

Construction will begin on 2,100 km of new rail line, 2,500 km of double-track lines and 4,000 km of electrified railways this year, the report cited unnamed authorities as saying.

To achieve the targets, China Railway Corp. (CRC) has been assigned a budget of 800 billion yuan (116.8 billion U.S. dollars) by the central government, the same as in 2016.

The vice minister of transport, Yang Yudong, disclosed earlier that China will spend 3.5 trillion yuan on railway construction during the 13th Five-Year Plan period (2016-2020).

By 2020, China will have increased the length of high-speed railways in operation to 30,000 kilometers, connecting more than 80 percent of its big cities.

By the end of 2016, China had a 124,000 km railway network, featuring the world's largest high-speed rail network of more than 22,000 km.

While the vast network has enhanced connectivity in large swathes of the country, construction lags behind in the less developed western regions. The government wants to address this gap.

Much of this year's construction projects will happen in China's central and western regions, to support the wider poverty-relief campaign, according to CRC.

Harbin Railway Administration Launches Through Passenger Train to Kunming
http://www.china-railway.com.cn/en/n...220_63560.html

The first through passenger train from Harbin to Kunming was put into service on January 5, which ended the history of no train access between the city of ice and the city of spring.

  The newly-operated passenger train K728/725, made its debut on January 5 from Harbin station to Kunming station, bypassing 53 stations including Changchun, Shenyangbei, Shanhai Pass, Qinghuangdao, Tangshan, Tianjin, Heze, Fuyang, Nanchang, Zhuzhou, Loudi and Guiyang. The 4,581km journey will take 63h 34min in travel time.

But it is a slow train. Could have been opened long ago.
Kunming and Harbin are both on CRH now!

And that's the advantage of CRH: now its carrying about half the passenger traffic they can start to convert some "ordinary" mainline expresses back into slower trains. After all, the CRH doesn't stop at Granma's village...

And neither do these slower trains... despite being disproportionately slow relative to the stops they serve.
K728, Harbin-Kunming:
53 stops
4581 km
trip time 63:34
average 85 km between stops
average speed 72 km/h
G403, Beijing-Kunming
22 stops
nominally 2760 km (Beijing-Changsha is exaggerated)
trip time 12:53
average 120 km between stops nominal
average speed nominal 216 km/h

...
"...disproportionately slow relative..."
Yeah, I'm being reminded of the successive speed lift programs culminating in "mainline" speeds of 140 or 160km/hr. So, is Chengdu-Kunming mainline? or Lanzhou-Xining? ChengKun is single track nearly all the way, with three sections of 150 kilometres at 1.4% gradient, plenty of curves rated at 60km/hr max. Lanzhou-Xining is not double tracked, in spite of what shows on the maps, it has a newer higher speed single track parallel to the old track with similar ratings to ChengKun.

Speed is only one advantage HSR has over ordinary trains. HSR also has the advantages of being double track, and Passenger Dedicated. But with the mad rush of passenger traffic to HSR I'm not holding my breath for more slower trains to resume service to little village stations...

True, thatīs a problem. Though a lot of China proper is on plains... where 120 km/h even on single track lines should not be hard.
