These infractructre cost S. Korea like 15 billion dollars, took like 8 years to built, and was designed by the French. Anybody known why it took so long to built these infrastructure. I thought that this kind of transportation was superb!!!

...

The G7 trains will be used for service between Seoul and Jeolla province, which is expected to have fewer passengers during weekdays because the number of cars can be variously adjusted depending on the number of passengers. The number of the KTX cars is fixed at 20, regardless of the number of passengers.

...

Song Dal-ho, chief director at the research center, said, "The designed speed is 385 kilometers per hour but the actual speed will be about 350 due to the weight of the passengers. Next year, we will easily pass our final goal of 350 kilometers per hour." The test train, composed of seven cars, is powerful and lightweight and can run up to 440 km per hour, theoretically.

Domestic technology, will reach up to 350 KM/ph


Could you please explain further what "domestic techology" is .

You mean 2 locomotives , 2 motor trailer cars, and 3 passenger cars. Am I wrong ? I have a Rotem's brochure which says that composition probably for the test train.

How is it possible to adjust the number of cars? It is articulated and the formation of the whole train is exactly the same as the KTX or TGV . If you have any idea about that I'll be happy to learn it.

Does anybody knows technical specification of this trainset or where I can find ? Like length, weight, seats , power(MW), acceleration, not starting (0-300), gear ratio.

Thanx in advance.

8 yrs isn't that long considering that they're building all new stations for the KTX and new railroads spanning top to bottom of S. Korea. This isn't a house building project a project of this size of course takes time. 15 billion on the other hand doesn't sound much, considering the scale of the project. HKairport alone cost $22 billion.

HK airport project had an abnormal cost for the sake of sheer grandeur and complicated geographical factors...I don't think that project can really be compared with anything.

It's almost funny how a train derails and all they talk about are students late for their exam...

why wouldnt they redesign it to make it an EMU? Push-Pull seems to outdated, not to mention EMU would allow for greater capacity because you dont have locomotives at either end.

You are right. It's somehow outdated now but I think it's unavoidable because korea had no exprience to make high-speed train until HSR-350(or KTX-II). But they now made KTX-II and launched new high-speed rain project(HEMU-400x, or Highspeed Electric Multiple Unit-400㎞/h eXperiment) last year. If this project get results korea will get new high-speed train on 2012 or 2013.

HEMU-400x news

Quote:
The government plans to shell out big bucks to develop bullet trains, which can run at a maximum speed of 400 kilometers per hour, by 2012.

Science and Technology Minister Kim Woo-sik on Thursday chaired a meeting of science-related ministers to chart the bold scheme on the ultra-fast trains, dubbed the HEMU-400X.

``We will channel 96.4 billion won ($101.9 million) over the next six years through 2012 to build the HEMU-400X,’’ said Bang Yoon-sock, director at the Ministry of Construction and Transportation.

``After years of field tests, the next-generation bullet trains will be commercially launched sometime between 2015 and 2020,’’ Bang predicted.

Of the total to be injected into the six-year project, Bang said, 62.9 billion won will come from the government, which earmarked 8.9 billion won for this year.

The super-fast train is a successor of the HSR-350X, which can reach a speed of 350 kilometers per hour. The country funneled 256.9 billion won to develop the HSR-350X in 2002.

``It took 11 years and more than 250 billion won to build the HSR-350X because we lacked competitive technologies in the past,’’ Bang said.

``However, we think experiences with the HSR-350X will help us substantially reduce costs and time to make the 400-kilometer-per-hour bullet trains,’’ he said.

A total of 100 rolling stocks of the HSR-350X, which is currently under trial runs, will be commercially deployed by Korean Railroad, beginning in 2009.

Korea opened the bullet train era in 2004 when the nation phased in the French-built KTX trains that can run at 300 kilometers per hour.

Does that mean the HSR 350X was just a prototype? ROTEM built a plant in Turkey (EUROTEM) in cooperation with the Turkish TUVESAS in order to build highspeed trains for the new highspeed lines in Turkey and we thought that they are going to build the HSR 350X in Turkey. Are there two trains now or is this going to be the only highspeed train in production?That would mean we'll have these babies soon as well. Although HSR 350x was quite sexy this baby is even hotter!
