High Speed Trains in China

Bettig Big on HIgh Speed Rail - Time

Key Points:
  • China is going to double the amount of miles of high speed rail in the next two years
  • China in 1981 has 54,000 km or rail. By the end of the year it will have 100,000
  • Currently China has 6442 km of high speed rail.


1. Will the cost to maintain the system make sense in the long run?

2. Will China's population increase in wealth quick enough to be able to afford the system.

I hope they have something like the Euro Pass or what Japan has for using the Bullet Trains when I finally get to China. I am not a train freak, but my Father sure is. And I grew up with a model train board that took up our garage!
