The Beijing-Wuhan section of the high-speed railway connecting the Chinese capital with the southern city of Guangzhou will use trains running at a maximum speed of 350 km/h starting in June, the China Railway has announced.
A test was conducted on the section linking Beijing with the provincial capital of Hubei in central China on Friday.
The test used a Fuxing bullet train and high-speed integrated testing vehicle, with a comprehensive check on up-down track, bridge, telecommunication, signal and overhead line system. It started from Beijing West Railway Station and ran south along the Beijing-Guangzhou High-speed Railway.
During the test, the train's speed reached 385.1 km/h at one point.
The current maximum operation speed along the 2,300-km rail between Beijing and Guangzhou is 310 km/h.
Ye Yangsheng, the chief engineer at China Railway, explained to China Media Group (CMG) some of the safety considerations for trains operating at such speeds.
"The acceleration of high-speed trains requires comprehensive consideration of various factors such as technical conditions, market demand, operation cost and environmental remediation," he said.
"Inside tunnels, the high-speed train is in a semi-closed environment. The increase in air pressure brings additional resistance, which makes the running resistance up by about 30 percent compared with open line conditions," Ye added.
After the success of the test, the Beijing-Wuhan section of the line will operate at 350 km/h starting June 20.
Currently, there are only four high-speed rails in China operating at 350 km/h, mostly in short-distance travel. They are: Beijing-Shanghai high-speed rail, Beijing-Tianjin intercity rail, Chengdu-Chongqing high-speed rail, and certain parts of Beijing-Zhangjiakou high-speed rail. The Beijing-Guangzhou rail is also the longest in terms of travel distance.

TGV 547.8kmh.jpg

France's TGV (Train à Grande Vitesse) records :
Feb. 26th 1981 : 380km/h
May 18th 1990 : 515.3km/h
April 3rd 2007 : 574.8km/h
France : more than 40 years of bullet-trains
:wave:
The Bugatti Chiron is also the first car to cross the 300 mph on a road:

Aug, 2nd 2019 : 304.773 mph = 490.484 km/h
But look at 3:18 ...
There is a way to do Mach1.2 on a road:

> Tries to show a picture of 'french superiority' over HSR
> Shows a picture of a Chinese HSR train instead

Lmao. The jokes truly write themselves.
LMAO, in fact, what you believe being a Chinese HSR is this version of the TGV:

While I agree that the one that broke the record is this model :

"Try to show French superiority over HSR"???? C'mon, it's more having a laugh about some CCP apologetics boasting over PRC' tremendous "innovations" while TGVs are operating a 300km/h+ since 1966... 380km/h was achieved in 1981...
Do you prefer watch the record happening?
TGVs are also used in Spain, Belgium, the Netherlands, UK, Germany, Italy, South Korea, USA, Morocco...
And unlike the Chinese HSR, over more than 5 decades, the TGV has no fatality records while operating at high speed...
Seriously, where do you think the Chinese copied their bullet-trains from????
And all the stuff they build, including aircraft, architecture, cars, ships, is 3D designed using a French CAD named CATIA created by Dassault... First thing created with CATIA was the Rafale fighter... Today, it's the standard of all the worlds' industries...
Don't worry, there is stuff PRC is very hard to beat at : tyranny

How funny, Wiki-English keeps on deleting the reference to the May 1st, 1939 patent #445686 deposed at the CNRS by Nobel-Prized Frédéric Joliot-Curie and his aides Hans von Alban and Lew Kowarski, and titled "Improvement for explosives loads"... This is "just" the patent for... The nuclear bomb !!!!
The Gaul ancestors were very creative too : trousers, keys, central-heating, wooden barrels, hair-dye, reaper, scythe, billhook, metallic plowshare, folding knife, nailed horseshoe, wood auger, iron reinforced wheel, potter's wheel, lighter, tinning, soap...

Now... Tell us about Brunei's achievements and about what your people brought to mankind
