China introduces new high-speed Fuxing train

They also boast top speeds of 400km/h but can run at a consistent speed of 350km/h.

China's fancy new bullet trains started running between Beijing and Shanghai on Monday. It stops at nearly ten stations which include names like Jinan, Shandong, and Tianjin.

According to state-owned Xinhua News Agency, China-developed technology is used in more than 80 percent of the CR400 train, which the engineer in charge of developing the new model proudly said, "we have achieved thorough self-development and standardization of our nation's high-speed train technology".

The Fuxing train has a sophisticated monitoring system which checks its performance in real time and automatically slows the train in case of emergencies or abnormal conditions.

The name Fuxing which sounds a bit odd also has a meaning behind it.

"Fuxing", a CR400AF model, departed Beijing South Railway Station at 11.05 am for Shanghai.

Although not planned for commercial use, China is now testing a ultra-fast bullet train that can achieve speeds of 600 kilometers per hour (or approximately 373 mph).

After years of restricting train speeds, China's high-speed railway may once again be offering passengers quick travel times by introducing a new train model that can conceivably make the trip from Beijing to Shanghai in just three hours. The tickets of this train are reasonably affordable.

Starting from July1, the Chinese-standard type will be applied to four pairs of high-speed trains operated between the two stations, he added.
