China is developing high-speed trains that can change tracks at speeds of 400 km/h, high-speed maglev trains at speeds of 600 km/h and smart trains for the 2022 Beijing Winter Olympics, China’s leading locomotive manufactures disclosed Wednesday.

“Standard tracks, wide tracks and narrow tracks coexist in China and Russia, as well as Europe and Africa. CRRC's 400km/h track changing high-speed trains will be able to run on these tracks, making intercontinental travel faster. Meanwhile, the high-speed maglev train with a speed of 600 km/h will provide passengers with a more friendly experience,” said Yu Weiping, vice president of China Railway Rolling Stock Corporation Limited (CRRC).

Yu added that CRRC is relying on intelligent sensing, big data, artificial intelligence and other technologies to give rail transit equipment new wisdom and new momentum, to provide passengers with a safer, more comfortable and more humane ride environment.

He made the remarks on Global summit on manufacturing services outsourcing, which is held from July 23-25 in Changchun, Jilin Province. Themed as "new manufacturing, new services, new integration, and new impetus", the summit held extensive dialogues, focusing on the integration and innovation of advanced manufacturing and modern services.
