The world's top 10 high-speed rail systems.
Jan 31, 2018

As a means of transportation, high-speed railway started in Japan and developed in Europe.

High-speed rail has neither everybody think so popular, also not everyone think so confined to a corner, ten high-speed rail system should be a relatively modest number, which can cover the main countries, and not others.

I. CRH, China harmony number.

For Europe and Japan, China's high-speed rail is not only the latecomers, is also a student, but I still see China Gao Tiepai in the first place, not just for China's total mileage of 9754 kilometers (including the opening of the hangzhou ningbo latest high-speed rail), although this is equivalent to the sum of all other national high-speed rail mileage, but also because China has changed the fate of the high-speed rail this transportation from a niche vehicle to popularize.

China's high-speed railway started in 1999 and will exceed 10,000 km by the end of this year.

On December 3, 2010, CRH380A created the fastest speed of the world railway operation test in the pilot test section of Beijing and Shanghai with 486.1 kilometers.

With a total length of 2,298 kilometers, the beijing-guangzhou high-speed railway is the longest running high-speed railway in the world.

In China's high-speed rail technology development, the future will lead the world, not because China is the attacker has the advantage of technology integration, not because the Chinese are naturally smarter than other people, but because China has the largest high-speed rail network world (more than 50% of the total mileage), the most complex high-speed operation environment, the largest high-speed passenger Numbers, the objective practice will born one of the greatest high iron standard, gave rise to the best of China's high-speed rail technology.

Japan Shinkansen.

Japan is a high-speed power, the opening of the Shinkansen a total of eight, the current total mileage of 2673.7 km, ranking the world's second on October 1, 1964, the connection between Tokyo and Osaka, new tokaido Shinkansen opened before the Olympic Games in Tokyo, is also the world's first commercial operation of high-speed railway.

Japan's Shinkansen technology is mature, stable and safe. It is known as one of the safest high-speed railways in the world and the most stable train in the world.

In addition to the mini-mains, trains can travel at speeds of up to 270 or 300 kilometers per hour, but they hit a record high of 443 kilometers per hour on high-speed tests.

French TGV.

France has contributed a lot to the development of high-speed railway. In 1971, the French government approved the construction of the TGV southeast line Paris to Lyon, which started in October 1976 and completed in September 1983.

With the rapid growth of passenger traffic, the economic benefits are good.

The successful operation of TGV southeast line proves that high-speed railway is a competitive modern transportation tool.

France has a unique place in high-speed railway technology, and TGV adopts power centralized mode.

Because at the beginning of the construction of high-speed railway, will determine the TGV high speed train can run on high speed railway and common rail technology policy and organization mode, so the French high-speed railway although only 1892.27 km, but TGV high speed train passing range has reached 5921 kilometers, covering more than half a French territory.

On April 3, 2007, the "v150" train successfully reached the world's top speed of 574.8 kilometers.

German ICE.

The famous ICE (InterCityExpress, InterCityExpress, or ICE) is a german-centric high-speed rail system and a series of high-speed railway trains.

Germany's high-speed rail technology reserves are no less than France's. In 1988, they were able to speed up the speed of the driving test at 400 kilometers per hour, reaching 406.9 kilometers.

Germany's high-speed railway, the mannheim to Stuttgart line, which opened in June 1991;

One was the Hanover - wurzburg line, which was completed in 1992.

At present, the total length of German high-speed railway is 12,87.48 km.

The AVE bullet train of Spain.

Gao Tiepai put Spain in fifth place, there is just one reason, Spain 2056 km of high-speed railway mileage ranked the first, but Spain's high-speed rail technology r&d weak high iron power in Japan, France, Germany, Spain's main USES the French TGV high-speed rail technology.

In April 1992, Spain opened a high-speed railway from Madrid to seville on the eve of the Barcelona games, catching up with the world's high-speed transport.

The Spanish high-speed train, known as AVE, has a top speed of 300 kilometers per hour.

AVE also created a record of 12,338 passengers a day.

Six, the British "eurostar" high-speed train.

Britain is the birthplace of the world railway, but the British did not strictly, only a eurostar is only in a strict sense of northern France high-speed rail extension, less than 100 km mileage.

Eurostar is a high-speed rail service linking st pancras station in London to Paris (north), lille and Brussels (south station).

After the train left London and across the English channel into France, the ratio and method in the eurostar train and use the same orbital, the French TGV and Thalys is walking in the U.K. for a period of up to the standard of TGV new track, the two stage plan has been completed in 2007 known as the channel tunnel.

Seven, Italian high-speed railway.

Italy's first high-speed railway was built in 1992 from Rome to Florence.

In 1998, Italy upgraded the 180km railway from milan to bologna and increased its speed to 300km/h.

So far, Italy has a total of 1,525 kilometers of high-speed rail.

The Italian high speed railway adopts the latest version of the ETR500 high-speed train, which is called "the star of Italian Europe".

8. Korean "KTX" high-speed rail.

South Korea's Korea Train Express was built in 1994.

KTX USES the French tgv-a type pull-type high-speed train, with A total of 46 groups, 12 of which are made in alstom, France, and the other 34 in South Korea.

At one end of the line is the south Korean capital, with a population of more than 12 million. The other is busan, South Korea's largest port and second largest city.

It was officially opened on April 1, 2004.

South Korea has 661 kilometers of high-speed rail.

Nine, China Taiwan "THSR" high-speed rail.

China is Taiwan high-speed rail link between Taipei and kaohsiung city, Taiwan high-speed rail system, through the west coast of Taiwan, Taipei as starting point, the banqiao, taoyuan, hsinchu, taichung, Taiwan, tainan and kaohsiung, a total of eight station, 345 km.

The high-speed rail system USES Shinkansen technology, with a maximum operating speed of 315km/h.

Its opening shortened the time between Taipei and kaohsiung to one and a half hours.

Launched in 1998, the Taiwan high speed railway construction plan, all was opened to traffic on March 2, 2007, the Taiwan high speed rail since opened to traffic, because it's fast and comfortable, has become the main transportation industry of western Taiwan citizens.

Ten, Russia's high-speed rail system.

High iron to clutter here in Russia, Moscow to st Petersburg in Russia opened high-speed railway, the introduction of Siemens ICE vehicle, the 650 km, the running speed of 160 km.

The Russian high-speed railway is adapted to the broad track Velaro RUS EVS, which is produced by the Russian railway corporation on the basis of Siemens ICE3.
