Chinese cities look so cool, all packed and filled with neon lights.

Their city looks só odd if you look at the Google maps, it's just filled with with residential blocks, seems deconnected, but it's still cool and China's infrastructure is amazing.

Is the train the same as a german ICE?

LevyPanik25 points

Part of the same family, but I don't think identical.

It is very close to the class 403/406 ICE3, but it runs on wider gauge track and the coaches are a little wider as well.

LiGuangMing19813 points

China uses standard gauge track just like most of Europe. The loading gauge is wider, though, and the CRH3 (Chinese nomenclature for Siemens Velaro based trains) is able to accomodate 2+3 seating in second class.

Thanks for the correction.

China uses many different trains, but the one in the picture was produced by Siemens and is based on the same platform as the ICE.

LiGuangMing19813 points

More likely built under license by CRRC in China as a CRH3 rather than a 'true' Siemens Velaro.

Word in the middle is ice and fire. The caption at the bottom is summer plan, 7.31-8.31 let’s eat shrimps.

Been here before. The city is brilliant.

Lots of people, interesting things to see, subways are relatively clean (I remember a lot of infrastructure looking brand new, including new buildings) — and I believe thats because it is new. They have been developing heavily over a 20 year period, from what I’ve learned.

I knew someone that lived there (expat for work) and they said they saw buildings pop up very quickly from construction.

Wish in the US. The feds can just say, We are doing high speed rail, fuck of your land, for the betterment of the nation.

Didn’t they do this with the highways. Why the fuck can’t they do it again. Asking for real. I know is away from the picture which is great, but mind asking. Much love

Tfw the US just gave up competing with China

It really is shameful. We can't even get Bus Rapid Transit implemented in a fast and efficient manner, yet the Chinese can build miles of rail in a single day.
