I will wonder how these trains will compare with the older compartmentalised high speed sleeper trains that could converted to seating for day use. Also it will be interesting to know what routes and availability of these high speed services too.

I took the old CRH1E before. the lay out is similar to other no-CRH soft sleeper (4 beds in each compartment, on one side of the train, aisle in the other side). Which when used as day time CRH, the two low beds space sold as 6 seats. This new CRH1E is different. The beds are on two sides of the train and the aisle is in the middle. the beds are in the same direction of the train. i don't think it will be converted to seats for the purpose of selling more tickets.

Have not they electrified a new commuter line in Beijing?
this is not a new line. they just use the old line but new train route. this train is the same as the one to Great Wall S2 line.
the other new route to Tongzhou uses CRH6A train. it also passes the new BJ west to BJ station underground section. so eventually this tunnel is used for Suburban line too.

It is a great that adding 3500 Km high speed rail track. This means in a few more years anybody can reach to all major cities by a high speed train in China.

1,500 workers complete a reconstruction project of a railway station within 9 hours in Fujian province



http://www.xinhuanet.com/english/201..._136918319.htm

FUZHOU, Jan. 23 (Xinhua) -- In just eight and a half hours, over 1,500 workers completed the installation of a new railway line as part of a train station upgrade in east China's Fujian Province.

Construction began at 6:30 p.m. Friday and by 3 a.m. Saturday, workers had completed the removal of old tracks, the laying of new tracks, and the installation of railroad switches at the station in the city of Longyan.

Seven trains and 23 excavators were used in the project.

The train station was upgraded to connect a newly-built line with three existing railway lines.

The newly-built line, linking Longyan with the city of Nanping in mountainous western Fujian, will begin operation at the end of 2018.

With a maximum designed speed of 200 kilometers per hour, the high-speed rail line will cut the travel time between the two cities from seven hours to just 90 minutes.

The 246 km Nanping-Longyan railway line will include stops in Shaxian, Sanming, Yong'an, and Zhangping.

Previously, three railway lines, namely Ganzhou-Longyan, Ganzhou-Ruijin-Longyan and Zhangping-Longchuan, passed through Longyan.

Once operation begins, the new railway line will further integrate the less developed part of Fujian with the cities of Beijing, Shanghai and Guangdong.
