With the launch of its newest, fastest, and most expensive rail projects, you too can now pass through 20 cities, go over 600 bridges, and pass through 200 tunnels to on your way from Wuhan to Guangzhou to help to create better cooperation between Hubei, Hunan, and Guangdong. … and in about 1/3 of the time of the old snail rail method.

    mmm… Wuhan, that’s St. Louis’ sister city. When will we get the line to Chicago that’s been on the table this past year?

    For some reason, this story was almost completed ignored by the UK media. You’d think the fastest train journey in the world would be worth a photo at least. But it’s more than a transport story. A society that can build, run and maintain a bullet train system safely is getting close to developed world levels of technological capability across the board. It’s a psychological and industrial landmark, just as the shinkansen was for Japan. Interesting too that this nearly 1,000 km line took just four years to build, while Taiwan, likewise using a mix of foreign technologies, spent the same time laying a track one-third the length—and wasted a decade beforehand arguing about it.
