The CRH 380 model (pictured at the CSR Qingdao Sifang train factory) is the star of the Chinese high-speed rail fleet-a program moving very quickly to connect China’s population centers.
Some Chinese trains can reach cruising speeds of 350 kilometers an hour — and when pushed to top speed can exceed 482 kilometers an hour.
