Beijing to Zhengzhou by Chinese Bullet Train | 700km in 3.5 hours | English CC |

October 11, 2019


Right now iam at Beijing railway station and my train G667 scheduled to arrive at platform#11 Mc Donalds is quite popular here in china The only place in china where i could get some decent coffee easily – Mc Donalds Right now, we are departing from Beijing Towards Zhengzhou there was nothing much to do for me in beijing so i roamed around railways station for 3 hours and now back to zhengzhou had my lunch at a mc donalds nearby Bought some souvenirs here in beijing, pretty decent ones although a bit pricey but of good quality My Personal Advice : Never Buy souvenirs or gifts at airports/railway stations. lets see how beijing looks from train i think i got the best seat now, i can now see highspeed trains passing in opposite direction announcements going on in chinese the weather was pleasant initially when you are new in china, you get annoyed with the announcements everywhere but after few days, you get accustomed and dont notice much. crawling through a sedate pace, due to city limits 300kmph i can barely see the tracks i would like to show you the alignment of tracks giggling out of astonishment looks as if they laid tracks using a scale/ruler the tolerance for deviation looks, few millimeters per kilometer arriving at a station cruising at 300kmph+ announcement in chinese sun hitting directly onto lens, hence the video is dark someone laughing in background notice how quiet the train is, even at speeds of 300+kmph, barely any noise this is so soothing, watching the scenery pass by current speed : 306 kmph absolutely blazing speeds Iam hoping to catch a crossing wwwooooooowwwwwww how amazing coincidence, the train passed as i said “crossing” :O that was a full train of 14 coaches, which passed like lightning ! another one ! hahaha beautiful view of sunset still travelling above 300kmph i can record 20 mins more, due to storage limit in my mobile current speed : 305kmph every 3 mins i can see a train passby in opposite direction which means the distance between 2 trains in same direction is roughly 6 to 7 mins lets do some math now 😛 to calculate distance in kms between 2 trains in same directoin distance covered at 300kmph=85 meters/second 85 meters/sec=5.1 kilometers / minute for 6 minutes=30 kilometers therefore as per my calculation, the distance between two trains in same direction is 30 to 35 kilometers this is the first time in my life, iam travelling at this high speed for this long (on ground) between 10.50am to 8.25pm (with almost 3 hours break) i would be covering 1400kms sorry it wasnt 1700kms, but 1400kms hats off to chinese railways with a network of more than 12,000kms of highspeed trains(i just googled now its 16,000kms) iam not even counting the regular trains here i dont know the total network of chinas railways just googled it, says 1,21,000kms(3 times around the earth) sorry wrong facts again, its not 13,000kms but 16,000kms of highspeed railways in china another one ! i consider chinas highspeed railways as engineering achivement becuase these are not any normal railway tracks so in single language, bullet trains are like ferraris of trains china – 16,000kms spain – 3,100 kms Japan – 2664 kms haha gone in a flash this video in hyderabadi / the normal way i speak deccani urdu. the train ride was amazing worth every penny train is of worldclass standards there is no competition to chinas railways whereas, in India….. there was a lot of hype for new bullet trains in India but after experiencing this iam convinced now this is not possible in india the amount of investment needed to build these trains is huge this fencing all the way to prevent people onto tracks that is not possible in inida also below the tracks, the sleepers(concrete logs) they are not used here Instead the track is built directly into hard concrete slab iam not saying its impossible to get this in india, but i believe it wont happen…considering the investment i was imagining the speed to be around 250, but when i saw at speed display information, it was above 300kmph arriving at some station now, so gonna slow down when a train passes in opposite direction, the whole train takes a jolt, due to the shockwave had a great experience today i was lucky to experience 2 bullet trains by now one was shinkansen in Japan, and now this one CRH – chinas railway highspeed ive been recording at 60fps since then, my mobile shows more 13 mins recording left takes around 10 kilometers to come to a stop from 300kmph upon braking but the acceleration is more brutal there were no outstanding views on way but there was alot of greenary indeed, China are way too ahead compared to india we assume back home in india, that we are competing against china, but in reality, there is no scope for competition between china and india dont hate me for saying this 😛 im sharing my opinion based on my expereinces almost 1.5 hours journey left hotel is around 30 mins from railway station in zhengzhou probably will reach hotel around 9pm slowing down he has been braking for long time now arriving at some big station here goes another one !!! but i guess it was visible this time 😛 the cabin is so silent, i was whispering into my mobile to record my narration 😛 arriving into station trying to pronounce the name of station but failed glad i didnt stop the video :p i would like to show, the amount of vibrations at this speed lets see how uncomfortable this train is due to vibrations (being sarcastic) you can imagine now, the amount of vibration you could feel had it been a indian train 😛 the bottle wouldve fallen down another train passing in background passing though some station so yeah, These are the vibrations you would bee feeling at 304kmph im sure not even a ferrari/mercedes would be this comfortable at these speeds iam speechless and thats me A very famous dialogue from Bollywood movie 😛 running at..no, flying at 300kmph arrived on time sharply, at 8.24pm as scheduled. now, the challenge is to reach hotel actually not a challenge, i just need to go hotel and call the day off this is zhengzhou east railway station i did a mistake, of going to other station in morning, because this turned out to be close to hotel but somehow, it was an experience to check out the new railway station aswell

    I have never traveled on this railway, but 200 times at least by bullet trains on other lines. Check this more mountainous HSR https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6ZL8iuzhbx4&list=PL8idtv_FMrMRfD1SmOWYRoiWZjF9O6BpL&index=25

    China's high-speed train has three marshalling modes. One is a single 8-car, the other is a single 16-car. There is also a special 8 +8 car, in your video 2:50 Department.

    China put men and women into space station 14 years ago, Western Europe countries can't put their people in space station, I don't understand what mean copyright.

    Nice Video, Suhail Bhai… Chinese trains appear to be superb and state of the art. Also, the cities, stations and all infrastructure appear to be First world, fully developed. I guess there would be poorer sections hidden from tourist view, but all said and done, what China has achieved in 50 years is phenomenal. The neatness and cleanliness is also noteworthy. Congrats to the Chinese people and their visionary leadership.

    Great work, man. I finished watching the 2nd part of your ZZ–BJ–ZZ video. I was amused by the fact that you got confused by the two railway stations at Zhengzhou, namely, the one where you took your morning train to BJ, which is exclusively for bullet trains, and the one which you found closer to your hotel and which is the one that accommodates mostly the mormal trains. Wonderful stuffs, thanks.

    Did you try the maglev train from Shanghai to Beijing? That one travels faster, it's about 400 kmph?

  • Reply Clarence Shaw May 22, 2017 at 6:33 am

    I watched the photos of the new high speed train in India, and I think these trains are also beautiful and cool. The speed is 200km/h. That's great.

    BTW, what are you doing in Zhengzhou? I am from Henan province and I thought Henan has very few business connections with other countries

    Why does the Indian always compare to China? As a Chinese I want to tell you that we seldom talk about India at all, and we don't hate India , nobody has ever compared China with India because we always compare with America and EU, it is also surprised that Indian media does not tell his people that China now has more than 25,000km high speed train in China with speed more than 300km/hour, and the latest speed just reached 400km/hour at some new routes from Beijing to Shanghai, please do not compare India with China any more, I am seriously saying this my Indian friends! Thank you

    The line that your take is Beijing-Guangzhou High-Speed Railway. There is another line called Beijing-Shanghai High-Speed Railway,there is a CR400AF-2005 trying to run 350km/h on it today.I just watched the experiment today morning,and it will be come true soon.

    Really enjoyed your video. The McDonalds in Australia also have McCafes. This concept actually started in Australia in 1993. Cakes and coffee at McDonalds.. Although we have McCafes we will (like India)never have such high speed trains. Probably for different reasons to India. We have the money but not enough people to use these trains. There are vast distances involved in Australian travel.Also Unlike China and India we have no nuclear energy . Most countries that have high speed electric trains have nuclear energy. Maybe a coincidence but not sure? Also In Australia cars and aeroplanes rule. Thanks once again.
