Tracking the tracks: China's high-speed rail network

A new high-speed 'sleeper' train made its debut run from Beijing South Railway Station to Shanghai on July 1, 2017. The train, designed and manufactured by CSR Qingdao Sifang Co Ltd, can travel up to 250 kilometers per hour. The new sleeper train, 37 percent bigger than the former model, now has room for 880 passengers. Thanks to the latest noise and vibration control techniques, the noise in the carriage is now under 62 decibels. [Photo/VCG]
