First China Made Bullet Train Makes Maiden Trip

(Beijing) – The first-ever "made in China" bullet train completed its inaugural trip on August 15, pushing the country's train makers one step closer to exporting indigenous rail technology.

The passenger train, built according to a technology standard developed and patented in China, made its debut in Dalian, a port city in the northeastern province of Liaoning, and will run daily to the provincial capital Shenyang, covering a distance of 380 km in about two hours. The train could reach a maximum speed of 350 kmph, comparable to the fastest trains in operation in Europe.
