I think the operational speed of the CRH2C is only 300km/h, but they tested it with higher speeds.

Beijing - Tainjin High Speed rail start up

From China Daily on 8/2:

High-speed rail link opens for business

The Beijing-Tianjin high-speed railway went into service on Friday with the departure of inaugural train C2001 at 10:40 am from Beijing South Railway Station. The bullet train, which arrived in Tianjin 29 minutes later, carried more than 50 passengers, journalists, officials and workers who participated in the line's construction.

Dong Zhiguo, a Beijinger in his 30s, said he waited hours on Thursday afternoon in order to buy a ticket for the train. "Riding the 350-kph train is totally different from past experiences. No loud noises. It's more like flying," he said. When the train arrived, he expressed regret that his return train left at noon. "I should have bought a ticket for the train leaving at 3 pm, so I could enjoy some seafood here in Tianjin," he said.

The comfortable ride on the high-speed train is made possible thanks to some cutting-edge designs.Train designers said the windows are specially made to change the light refraction and reduce dizziness caused by its high speed.
Also, wind monitoring equipment can inform the train driver to slow down when the crosswind blows at 15 m per second, and stop when it exceeds 35 m per second.

The same traveler-friendly concept is embodied in the new Beijing South Railway Station, the largest in Asia. Ministry of Railways spokesman Wang Yongping said it has more than 100 ticket windows and 36 self-service ticket machines to make life easier for passengers. People arriving by taxi will have to walk only about around 150 m to get to their trains, he added.



A new Beijing-Tianjin Intercity Railway train is pictured at the station in Beijing August 1, 2008.

China's railway projects are mind blowing. Trains look very nice, railways and stations are incredible. Just wanted to add a googleearth image of huge South Station, can you look how big this is. Lenght is around 500m.

Why are they using both CRH2 and CRH3 on the Beijing - Tianjin line?

Anybody knows what curve radius that are used on the line?

I know, the shere scale of Beijing south station is mind bogaling.
if you zoom out and compare it to the the China grand theater, it looks like its little brother.

You can still make out this building from over 300km in the air (on Google Earth)

Why you didn't? Hmmmmm .... maybe because you were searching only for skyscrapers, so now, after your 4,445 postings here it's time to go for a cure, otherwise next time in Beijing, you'll miss even the forbidden city

I remember QD as only one tall building was there, a real cosy and sleepy town, just a better village. I have been there maybe 10-12 times, but what I miss today is QD of 1990, when it was impossible to ... miss the railway station.

Actually I've seen pretty much everything there is to see in terms of classic architecture in QD, I just managed to overlook the train station for some reason.

Was that supposed to be funny or just patronising?

North Korea does not have to change its economic system to have HSR, just its political system.

The discussion of North Korea is wildly off-topic and everyone is misunderstanding what everyone else is saying. I suggest its avoided in this thread.

Wording seems a bit weird, as Beijing-Tianjin should not be China's first HSR :

China's first high speed railway moves 20,000 passengers daily in past week

BEIJING, Aug. 8 (Xinhua) -- Beijing-Tianjin Intercity Railway, China's first high speed rail line, has transported an average of 20,000 passengers daily since its Aug. 1 opening.

On busy days, an average of 22,000 people took the new service to Beijing, two times the previous volume from Tianjin to Beijing, according to Tianjin municipal railway department statistics on Friday.

The new service cut the 120-km journey from 70 minutes to about 30 minutes with five stops at Yizhuang, Yongle and Wuqing.

The service is shuttling spectators, athletes, media people as well as other passengers between Beijing and Tianjin, one of the Olympic co-host cities for 12 football matches from Aug. 6 to Aug. 15.

In total, 47 trains are scheduled to run daily from each city.

The railway is the world's fastest with trains running at an operational speed of 350 km per hour, according to the Ministry of Railways (MOR). It claimed high-speed trains in Japan and Spain ran at 320 km per hour, and those in France and Germany at 300 km per hour.

About 26 million people travel between the two cities annually. The MOR predicts the new line will help raise the figure to 32 million this year.
