This line at the time of its launch was the longest high-speed railway in the world! Its length is 2298 kilometers. Early trains overcame the distance in 24 hours, now, with the introduction of high-speed traffic, that time is reduced twice.

The train started up on this new railroad, moving at speeds of up to 300 kilometers per hour, and do on the way between Beijing and Guangzhou just three stops in major Metropolitan areas in the course of movement.
