Travel on China's High-Speed Trains

China's indigenous next generation bullet train with a maximum speed of 400 kmph made its debut today on the country's busiest Beijing-Shanghai line. 

The new bullet trains, also known as electric multiple units (EMU), boast a top speed of 400 kilometres per hour and a consistent speed of 350 kilometres an hour, state-run Xinhua news agency reported. 

The train was designed and manufactured by China, the report said. The train includes a sophisticated monitoring system that constantly checks its performance and automatically slows the train in case of emergencies or abnormal conditions. 

A remote data-transmission system, a control centre will be able to monitor the train in real time, it said. 

Lu Dongfu, general manager of China Railway Corporation, operator of the new train, said 'Fuxing', underpins the unique role that high-speed railway has played in China's economic and social development.

 China is also aggressively marketing its bullet train technology in different countries including India effectively competing with Japan. 

China will build more bullet train network as part of its efforts to establish a comprehensive transport system by 2020
