Record number of freight trains link China, Europe
Xinhua Excerpt

BEIJING – The number of China-Europe freight trains reached a new annual record this year since starting operations in 2011 in a sign of closer economic ties between the two major markets.

More than 3,000 cargo trains have traveled on 57 lines between cities on the two continents, surpassing the past six years combined, and pushing the aggregate to over 6,000, China Railway Corporation (CRC) said Saturday.

"The trend is solid," CRC said in a statement.

A coordination committee was established in May to further bring down logistics costs and improve efficiency, added the statement.

The cargo service has been growing rapidly, now bridging 35 Chinese cities, including Xi'an and Yiwu, and 34 European cities such as Hamburg and Madrid. It is considered a significant part of the Belt and Road Initiative.

Govt to expand rail network to 150,000 km

http://www.chinadaily.com.cn/busines...t_34948878.htm



China will expand the railway network to 150,000 kilometers by 2020, including 30,000 km of high-speed rail, according to the 13th five-year plan (2016-20) for railway construction issued by the nation's top economic regulator on Friday.

The network is expected to cover all cities with population of more than 200,000, and the high-speed railway network is expected to connect more than 80 percent of China's major cities, according to the plan issued by the National Development and Reform Commission.

The total length of China's railway has reached 121,000 kilometers and that of high-speed rail has touched 19,000 kilometers as of 2015.

China will enhance oversight over investment in PPP high speed railway projects, as part of efforts to dissolve financial risks, the plan said.

China will facilitate debt to equity swaps for railway projects with promising returns, the plan added.

Now, as of December 2017, which cities with population of more than 200 000 are not covered by railway network?

I think some of cities are located in the remote mountainous Yunnan Province Like Xishuangbanna (370,000) and Ruili (120,000). However, railroad are being built toward there. Dali-Ruili railway will go to Burma and Xishuangbanna is located on the railway to Laos.

In pics: desert express in Xinjiang
http://news.xinhuanet.com/english/20...36813333_6.htm

The 485-km train route linking two major oasis towns Kashgar and Hotan, runs through some of the remotest areas in Xinjiang, and has transformed life in the desert since its launch in 2011. It is the first and only railway in Hotan, via the railway the underdeveloped prefecture is linked to the rest of the country's rail network, which boasts 22,000 km of high-speed railway lines. Poor transport infrastructure has caused China's west to lag behind eastern regions in terms of economic competitiveness. Building more railways has become a necessity for the country's western region to expand growth and social development along the Silk Road. There was only one train per day when the passenger service was launched in June, 2011. Another train was added in 2016 to better meet local demand. In each trip some 1,000 passengers can board the 19-carriage train to cross the desert. The seven-hour ride costs only 28 yuan (4.2 U.S. dollars), one of the cheapest passenger train services in the country. Traveling used to be vexing in Hotan, where sand and dust storms dominate weather about 200 days of the year. "My clothes were a mess when I used to travel on donkey back or by car," says Seydiehmet Kichik, from Hotan, "Now the train brings me to more job opportunities outside." Working as a cotton picker in Aksu Prefecture, about 600 km from his hometown, Seydiehmet can earn 12,000 yuan in a three-month harvest season, more than his entire income for the previous year. The railway has shortened the distance between local people and their ideal schools and jobs. 15 million trips were made during the past six years, according to local railway authorities.

Photo taken on Dec. 24, 2017 shows the construction site of a railway bridge over the Dongting Lake, the second-largest freshwater lake in China, in Yueyang City, central China's Hunan Province. The 1,290-meter bridge is an important part of the world's longest heavy-duty railway for coal transport. The 1,837-km railway is still under construction and is designed to link the coal-rich western Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region with Ji'an City in east China's Jiangxi Province. The railway line is scheduled for operation in 2020. (Xinhua/Zhu Xiang)

Beijing launches two new railway lines

http://www.xinhuanet.com/english/201..._136863260.htm

BEIJING, Dec. 31 (Xinhua) -- Beijing authorities have launched two new railway lines.

One of the new lines, linking the city proper with Tongzhou District, became operational on Sunday morning. The 38.8-km-long line connects Shijingshan District in the west with Tongzhou in the east. Five stations have been set up, though only four are currently operational. With the new line, passengers only need 28 minutes to get from Beijing Railway Station to Tongzhou.

The line is expected to help ease transport pressure between the city center and Tongzhou.

Another line links Changping District with the suburb districts of Huairou and Miyun. It spans 135.6 km and has six stations. Currently only three stations are in operation.

Kunming metre-guage "temporary" shutdown

Quote:
As with all important announcements in Kunming, this one was made with a hastily printed single sheet of paper pasted on a wall. The city's beloved but little-used 35.2-kilometer narrow gauge railway — stated the note — has ceased operations in lieu of construction of a more modern option — the subway.

What kind of train sets are they using on the "Huaimi" line to Huairou?
Is it the same commuter trains as on the Sub-Central line?
