Great ChrisJ 2019-11-08 2:25

Hello Jorge,

Zhangjiajie is still on my bucket list of locations to see in China. Yes, the 'K' series of blue trains are very slow compared to the bullet trains which rocket along at 280 km per hour. They used to go at 300 km per hour before an accident in Zhejiang in 2011, where lightning struck the powerline and stalled a train, allowing the 2nd train speeding up from behind to catch it and crash. :-( The river seen here looks very shallow, judging by the exposed rock and barely submerged sandbanks. Tfs!

I guess I have a photo with 300 km by hour showed in the train panel, anyway such speeds only in some parts of the way. I presume a track for these bullet trains should be perfect to be able to get such velocity.

take care

jorge
