Super-fast subway cars will debut in Guangzhou
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
23/11/2005 8:47

The world's fastest subway cars - speeding at 120 kilometers per hour - are expected to be zipping along the rails early next month in Guangzhou in Guangdong Province.
China is emphasizing the importance of efficient, clean, low-cost public transportation, especially by rail, above and below ground.
The three huge cars - carrying almost 700 passengers - just rolled off the assembly line last week, according to the Guangzhou Metro Corp.
They are expected to debut on the first section of the new Metro Line 3 in Guangzhou, scheduled to open next month.
A joint product of China's Locomotive and Rolling Stock Industry Corp and Germany's Siemens AG, the new subway cars are specially designed for Guangzhou's metro lines.
Each subway car will have three compartments with a total length of 60 meters, and capable of seating 675 passengers. Each compartment will have six public information screens.
The speed will reach 80km per hour during the trial operation, then hit 120km per hour in full operation.

The plug-style doors are nice, but the ends of the train are not very imaginative.

^ yeah I know... BBD is a Canadian company, although they have plants in Germany. The GUangzhou Line 2 vehicles were made there - 2 units fully made there and the rest are made both there and in Changchun by the Changchun car company (CCC).

Very nice. Is this a medium-capacity line? The train looks small, only 3 doors per car.
