I like the name (和谐 = harmonious).
Same power as HXD1b, but I am still searching for pictures outside of locomotive works. Their are probably to be found on Hasea or other blogs, but difficult to be found by non-chinese (language barrier)!

Pictures of the 1X Co-Co HXD1?

I didn't know it was ready for production yet. Let me check.

But no, I haven't seen anything in the forums lately.

But then i think they should just keep the HXD1 as a 2X Bo-Bo. Having 16 wheels have much more traction than the 12 wheels 1X Co-Co configuration.

Second railway from Lanzhou to Xinjiang

Xinjiang Hami to build 100-million-ton coal base
Wednesday, April 01, 2009


China is planning to build a 100-million-ton coal-producing base in Hami region, as the east gate of Northwest China's Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region, according to the statement of administration of Hami regions.

Hami region, with estimated reserve of 570 billion tonnes, will be an important coal-producing base in West China, supplying and transporting coal to east areas from west.

Xinjiang plans to conduct further exploration in Turpan-Hami coal base covering 130,000 square kilometers with expected newly added coal reserve amounting to 80 billion tons.

According to development plan for coal industry of Hami region, the annual coal production capacity in Hami is expected to reach 197 million tonnes in 2013, 300 million tonnes in 2015 and 500 million tonnes in 2020.

Meanwhile, Chinese government has clearly announced to start constructing on the second railway from Lanzhou to Xinjiang in this June, in a move of promoting coal transportation.

The first railway from Lanzhou to Xinjiang will become the line for transporting coal as the second railway is finished, which will take the place of the first line for passenger traffic.

The construction of the railroad, with a total investment of 120 billion yuan, is expected to be finished in three years, realizing annual coal transportation capacity of 300 million tonnes.

I'm confused; there is a project to link Beijing-Nanjing-Shanghai by 2011 but there is also another project to link Nanjing-Shanghai by 2010. Will there be 2 high speed lines between Nanjing and Shanghai then?

Also I've drawn a Google map. Click here

Yes, the are two parallel high-speed railway, because the traffic in that region is too large.(Five of the 10 million population city and a lot of small and medium-sized cities and towns located along the Shanghai-Nanjing 300km line)

Shanghai to Nanjing high-speed rail service to those passengers who travel inner-region(short distance), the Beijing-Shanghai high-speed rail service to those passengers who travel inter-regional(long distance).

Shijiazhuang–Taiyuan Passenger Railway, 250 km/h, opened on April 1, 2009

This line cut the travel time between Shijiazhuang to Taiyuan from 04h59m to 01h13m.
