China Launches High-Speed Train Shanghai-Tianjin

Posted by Charlie @ Discovering Mandarin Sunday, 2 August 2009
Chinese railway authorites are to launch high-speed Electric Multiple Unit (EMU) trains on 15th August. They will appear on a railway linking the eastern financial hub of Shanghai and northern Tianjin City, shortening the trip by an hour.

The EMU trains, coded D341 and D342, are expected to shorten the trip time from the current 10.5 hours to nine hours and 14 minutes, said an official with Tianjin Train Terminal.

He said the Tianjin-Shanghai EMU will be put into use from Aug. 15 and the Shanghai-Tianjin EMU one day later.
