China High-Speed Railway: Country’s Golden Name Card



High-Speed railway, according to the definition of International Union of Railways (UIC), normally refers to railways with design speed over 250 km/h for new lines, or those with speed over 200 km/h for those with increased speed rating. In China, the definition for HSR is slightly different, and it specifically refers to newly constructed dedicated passenger transport railways for motor train units (MTU) with running speed of 250 km/h (including that reserved for the future), and initial period operation speed no less than 200 km/h.
