Chinese Trains

Chinese Trains

In response to Iain’s request here are some of the photos I took in China. They’re mostly the high speed train including one which shows what happens to a bird when it hits a 200mph train! Plus a couple of commuter trains and some infrastructure.

There are some small vids as well but I don’t know how to post them.

I will post a separate bit on the Shanghai MagLev.

It won’t let me load the photos as they’re too big

About The Author


Recently retired to the south coast where I'm building a large, fictitious layout called Bartlesham in my garage. It is modern, industrial with an intermodal container depot at one end, a cement works in the middle and a chalk quarry at the other end.

    Hi Pete,
    that looks an impressive train. Thank you for sharing 🙂 The max size for photos that can be uploaded is 200MB. If some photos are larger they may get rejected by the system.

    I’ll try loading them individually. This is a distant view

      Very sleek looking train.

    It seems I can load bigger photo files as a comment than I can in an article.
    This is a picture of the special track

    Also as a curiosity in the Shanghai MagLev museum they had quite a good model of the system if anybody fancies replicating it.

      I seem to recall a German or Japanese model company produced a model maglev system. Certainly would make for a different model.
