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.

Questions:

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!
