their is no disputing that China has done very well wrt passenger transport in the last 15 years.
But i am just keeping the facts clear .
70 % of Chinese tracks are still for slow trains.
Any train that touches 200 kmph is considered high speed in China.
As per latest reports , 60 % of Chinese passengers take high speed trains. If any updated figures are available, its fine.
ps- the 1st high speed train i took was a long time back in china. Shanghai to ningbo.

Your Indian luxury train looks like from last century, no much modern high tech elements seen. besides, Chinese high speed trains are super cheap, everyone can afford riding them like a public bus, can every average India afford riding this Indian train on regular basis? and how fast is this Indian luxury train? 40KM/ per hour?

You are right. Our train looks like centuries old. However, What we had centuries ago, you never had in your history. For example, our centuries old temples, palaces architechs so unique that you don't have one such parallel in the entire history of China. You should be happy if you are able to achieve an iota of that.

Nice coping mechanism

Keep celebrating about your centuries old architecture due to the lack of modern architecture today compared to China

It's not about luxurious buy the speed and stability. Making a luxurious train has zero technology involved. Any tom dick harry with money can make it.

But to make a train go 350km/h while as stable as slow strode on park. Not anybody can do it.

But the title is about laxury not about speed. There are many 350 kmph trains.

agreed but if you don't start , you will never learn.
At some stage copying and relying on others has to be stopped.
China has done well in copying western designs but the next stage is originality.
I agree on the capability development part. Unfortunately it works both ways. Customers also need to have faith in local companies. Decision makers especially in government and corporates tend to be risk averse as it is not their money and don't want to be questioned when things go wrong at the hands of a local contractor.

Take India for example. Both Tata and Mahindra have been in automobile manufacturing for decades. To enter the big league, they had to partner with European design companies. You can see what kind of interiors they were producing before these tie ups.

We are in China and we know what trains we take, why you don't check the video for the affordability and availability of these trains before speaking, do you know any Chinese who claim they can't afford a bullet train ride? and where can people still find slow trains even if they like to ride one? are you talking about cargo railway lines?

It's hilarious to watch Indians lecturing Chinese what luxury should look like and what Chinese should be doing.

Chinese trolls can do anything. Even they can post the picture of Chinese train and call it Indian.

Decades old photos don't prove your point, go to youtube and check out what foreinger experience in riding Chinese trains and Indian trains.
This 6 years old TV special was from your own Indian media.
