Plans. (large!)

Blue + black + white: completed
Red: under construction or complete in 2020
Yellow: start between 2020-2025
Green: start before 2030
I knew Chinese HSR plans were massive thanks to excerpts, but now that I can see the whole map it has blown my mind! However I read there were plans to build some regional lines in "the northern slopes of Tian Shan" (i.e. the Mori-Ürümqi-Kuytun corridor out in Xinjiang), and that map shows nothing yet, so maybe it's planned for after 2030.

Bellows . Even better, the Spanish word for what one does with a bellows has also the far better known meaning of a f-bomb.

Finally, some stats..
https://www.chinadaily.com.cn/a/2020...e35582272.html

In 2019, 802.9 billion yuan was spent on railways in China and 8,489 km of new track became operational, surpassing the annual targets of 800 billion yuan for investment and 6,800 km of new lines.

As a result, the nation's fast-expanding railway network reached a total length of 139,000 km by the end of last year, while the high-speed rail network exceeded 35,000 km, a year ahead of China's plan to build a total of 30,000 km of high-speed railway lines by 2020

Lu also told the conference that the total revenue of the rail transport sector increased 6.1 percent year-on-year in 2019 to 818 billion yuan, and it is expected to reach 868 billion yuan by the end of 2020.

Tian Shan slope line is already finished if you mean from Urumqi to the north. Those are normal speed lines not on this HSR map.

Definitely an oversight to not take the storage of oversized ski equipment for the rollingstock servicing this route.

As for Badaling being the largest underground station, I believe that still is Futian Station in Guangdong. Maybe it is the deepest?

The train has the storage for ski equipment. I saw it in other video. I guess it is not opened yet.

Fuxing bullet trains start to run on Panzhihua-Kunming high-speed railway



Quote:
A passenger takes selfies with a Fuxing bullet train at Kunming Railway Station in southwest China's Yunnan Province, Jan. 9, 2020. The CR200J Fuxing (Rejuvenation) bullet trains started to run on the high-speed railway linking Panzhihua and Kunming on Thursday. As the train goes into service, travel time between the two cities is slashed from about 5.5 hours to about two. (Ding Yiquan)

Yup, Futian's bigger. Every time a news article or video is posted, that same inaccuracy is repeated, and every time I correct them. To no avail, I'm afraid.
