First Inter-City New Energy MU Train Debuts in Inner Mongolia, Runs Over 200 km on Single Charge

https://www.yicaiglobal.com/news/first-inter-city-new-energy-mu-train-debuts-inner-mongolia-runs-over-200-km-single-charge

(Yicai Global) July 4 -- An inter-city new energy multiple-unit train developed by CRRC Changchun Railway Vehicles Co. is slated to start a test run in Inner Mongolia.

It features a dual power supply system that allows the train to shift energy source between the grid and batteries, making it the first inter-city train of its type in China, reported China National Radio on its website. The train can run more than 200 kilometers in the off-grid mode.

It is powered by the grid under normal circumstances and uses batteries when power is unavailable, meaning that it can operate across different track systems. Its top speed is 160 kilometers per hour.

The dual-power technology enables the train to travel on inter-city railways and urban light rail networks. It also makes it possible for the train to operate under extreme weather conditions such as sand storm and alpine areas. It is suitable for operating in nature reserves, tourist attractions and other places that are inaccessible to the grid.

Furthermore, the report said, some countries along the Belt and Road are still using single track railways with complicated signal systems for both passengers and freights. The new inter-city train powered by the grid and batteries can improve rail transport services in those countries without constructing new railways or changing the existing signal systems.

There's quite a focus on the... hey guys... we built and designed this... NO, seriously... we did!!! By the way, we designed these trains all by ourselves.


This is not a reflection on your post tjrgx, as you're just repeating what was said, but it's as if this statement on CCTV is more meant for show or braggadocio than anything else. Or perhaps if they repeat it enough the local Chinese citizens will give it more credibility.

There's nothing wrong with licensing tech/tech transfer, then improving it for your own use afterwards. No need to be all showy about it. It's not as if any manufacturer has built this technology from scratch... no one's reinventing the wheel here. I think it's great that China has taken tech from Japan and Europe to learn how to build these trains and then build them locally, but making flash statements like "We OWN ALL THE TECHNOLOGY" is disingenous at best.

It is a reaction to the attitude of western media about almost anything from China. Like you did here, it is not "disingenuous". It is true. However, I agree they do not need mention it that much. Also, these trains novel piece of tech as exemplified by the test they did with two trains running opposite directions at 420km/h. It is more than mere local production.

^^ Thanks for the news.
Now they have added a golden detail in the little window, like the CR400BF?

Before there was nothing golden:


They had only ordered 8, did not order more?

^^ Every time I believe more that they are different series.



In addition I have pointed out that began to circulate in 2015 in the Commuter lines: Lanzhou-Chongqing and Chongqing-Lichuan. In the future in Qianjiang-Zhangjiajie-Changde.

this train is just a Transitional product,to meet the shortage of 250KM/H train.in the future there will two new design 250KM/h train,like CR400.but this will take a few years.

CRH3A

^^ I mentioned the CR400BF just for the golden color, in case some trains start to have something of that color.

As for the standard HS EMU, I think that the logical thing would be a single series for 350/400 and another for 250. I look forward to that new standard EMU for 250. Thank you.

But what amazes me is that it was announced that the CRH3A series entered service in 2015 and now announce the commissioning of the CRH3A which is slightly different: roof equipment, headlights and fairing.

CRH3A by CNR Tangshan 2015: 8 trains, 616 seats, 5120 kW, 202 meters and 428 tonnes.

CNR Tangshan rolls out CRH3A Railway Gazette 04 Jul 2013.

Intercon Silk Road

China's Concept Intercontinental High Speed Train.

If it is manufactured, it will be a two-level HST with passengers in the upper and load in the lower level, and is designed for the New Silk Road: 'One Belt, One Road'.









They are talking about Beijing-Berlin and London, but it also follows a very rare route through Manchuria and Siberia, north of Mongolia, following almost the entire Trans-Siberian route. The real plans are to travel through Central Asia to extend its influence in that area, apart from being the shortest route.

Is it the shortest route to go through Central Asia?

^^ I think the shortest and most logical route is from Urumqi follow the new Silk Road. In addition, for Siberia only there is Russian gauge.

If they want high speed trains with variable gauge that speak with CAF or Talgo. :)
