China goes past 200km/h

d460.jpg  There are many stories running today about China running its first 200km/h (plus, depending on the source) rail service. This marks the ongoing speed up project in China and the journey from Shanghai to Suzhou cut the journey time by an impressive half to 38 mins.  There appears to be many high speed units running in China, but today’s “speedup” day, as the ChinaDaily put it, uses China’s own “CRH” units.
