Actually Urumqi-Shenzhen.Is that an Urumqi-Guangzhou/Hong Kong line at the bottom?
Urumqi-Shenzhen 4657 km, of which Urumqi-Guangzhou 4510 km.How long is it?
Urumqi-Shenzhen, Z232: 2:00:43 - departs 18:45, arrives 19:28, 2 days later.How long do these two services take?
Nothing. All parts of the lines have been built long ago. What is new is that one train connects these particular stations, rather than ending and connecting somewhere in between.Do you know the cost to build it?
Thank you very much!Actually Urumqi-Shenzhen.
Urumqi-Shenzhen 4657 km, of which Urumqi-Guangzhou 4510 km.
For comparison, Urumqi-Qiqihar is 4818 km, of which Urumqi-Harbin 4530 km
Urumqi-Shenzhen, Z232: 2:00:43 - departs 18:45, arrives 19:28, 2 days later.
Urumqi-Guangzhou, Z232: 1:22:55 - arrival 17:40
Urumqi-Qiqihar, K1082: 2:19:32 - departs 23:08, arrives 18:40, 3 days later
Urumqi-Harbin, K1082: 2:15:41 - arrival 14:49
Correct.but what do the three-number sets in the middle mean?
Do they refer to day:hour:minute? Would that mean that it is two days and 43 minutes Urumqi to Shenzhen?
Qiqihar-Urumqi: K1084, travel time 2:13:48, departs 6:00, arrives 19:48 2 days laterWhat are the reverse arrival and departure times (ie Shenzhen to Urumqi)?
Qiqihar-Urumqi: K1084, travel time 2:13:48, departs 6:00, arrives 19:48 2 days later
Shenzhen-Urumqi: Z230, travel time 2:00:17, departs 9:30, arrives 9:47 2 days later
Wow! Now I'm wondering how long that would take.Another big news is that there is now a direct train Yining-Shanghai.
2:07:16 for 4742 km.Wow! Now I'm wondering how long that would take.
1:01:03. But this includes station stops of 2:20 in Dandong and 3:30 in Sinuiju.I would also like to know what the travel times are Peking-Pyongyang.
Thank you very much!2:07:16 for 4742 km.
1:01:03. But this includes station stops of 2:20 in Dandong and 3:30 in Sinuiju.
Beijing-Dandong is 13:55 by the K27 that continues to Pyongyang - and 6:13 by G397.
The distance Pyongyang-Sinuiju, 225 km, also matches the distance Dandong-Shenyang (224 km).Thank you very much!
It looks like Pyongyang-Sinuiju is five hours. Pyongyang is about half-way between the DMZ and the Yalu. Assuming that the tracks are upgraded to modern standards, then it would probably be about five hours all the way through
No. Z69 does not pass through Xian (makes a shortcut via Taiyuan) and makes 18 intermediate stops.I found this online at Seat61.com. It looks like Beijing-Urumqi is about 27 hours by Z train (is that completely non-stop?) and 40 hours by T train:
Beijing, Xian ► Ürümqi
Train Z69 10:00 day 1 18:09 day 2
What does that 277 km represent? And where does G395 come from (I saw G397 before)?The distance Pyongyang-Sinuiju, 225 km, also matches the distance Dandong-Shenyang (224 km).
For 277 km on old line, K27 takes 3:42. For 208 km on new line G395 takes 1:15.
Sorry.No. Z69 does not pass through Xian (makes a shortcut via Taiyuan) and makes 18 intermediate stops.
Deutsche Bahn signs Chinese agreements
13 Jun 2016
CHINA: Deutsche Bahn CEO Rüdiger Grube signed two memoranda of understanding to undertake projects in China on June 13, during a visit to China by Chancellor Angela Merkel.
The first covers the provision of maintenance and repair support to rolling stock manufacturer CRRC. This continues co-operation to optimise high-speed trainset maintenance, and provide mutual support in addressing operating problems related to the wheel-rail interface
Tourism booms on plateau after 10 years of Qinghai Tibet RailwayQinghai-Tibet railway next to Cuona Lake
This means that 29 000 km should be built, including 11 000 high speed railways and 18 000 km slow speed railways.http://usa.chinadaily.com.cn/epaper/2016-06/30/content_25917640.htm
China set forth new goals on Wednesday for a long-term, more comprehensive plan for the country's rail network, including 150,000 kilometers of rail lines by 2020.
Compared with developed countries of a similar size, the length of China's operating railways is still not long enough, the premier said. Railway construction is important for stabilizing economic growth and structural reform, especially in central and western China, he added.
By the end of last year, China had 121,000 km of operating rail lines, including 19,000 km of high-speed railways, according to the National Development and Reform Commission.
In 2008, the NDRC issued a national rail plan that aimed for an operating rail network of more than 120,000 km by 2020.
The plan approved on Wednesday is a revision of the 2008 plan and targets a network of 150,000 km by 2020. Of this, 30,000 km will be high-speed rail.
Key measures include expanding the high-speed rail network connecting major cities and other urban areas to eight rail lines running north to south and eight going east to west.
Intercity rail lines will also be enhanced.
Once the plan is achieved, rail travel between neighboring major and medium-sized cities will take from one to four hours.
