How China built the best high-speed rail ever [Video]

China built almost 40,000 kilometers of high-speed rails in just over a decade. Meanwhile, dreams for a similar high-speed train systems in the EU and US have been consistently derailed. How did China do it? And at what cost? We’re destroying our environment at an alarming rate. But it doesn’t need to be this way. Our new channel Planet A explores the shift towards an eco-friendly world — and challenges our ideas about what dealing with climate change means. We look at the big and the small: What we can do and how the system needs to change. Every Friday we’ll take a truly global look at how to get us out of this mess.#PlanetA #HighSpeedTrain #ChinaRead More (Links):Research paper modeling high-speed rail’s offset of emissions: https://www.researchgate.net/publication/254419796_Can_high_speed_rail_offset_its_embedded_emissions Asia Development Bank Report 2019:https://www.adb.org/sites/default/files/publication/504076/adbi-wp959.pdf World Bank report on China’s construction costs: https://documents.worldbank.org/en/publication/documents-reports/documentdetail/695111468024545450/high-speed-railways-in-china-a-look-at-construction-costs IEA Future of Rails Report:https://iea.blob.core.windows.net/assets/fb7dc9e4-d5ff-4a22-ac07-ef3ca73ac680/The_Future_of_Rail.pdf European Court of Auditors report on EU’s High-Speed rail: https://op.europa.eu/webpub/eca/special-reports/high-speed-rail-19-2018/en/0:00 Intro0:58 High-speed history1:55 How China did it4:44 Human – and creature – costs6:01 Geopolitical goals6:54 Airline problems8:32 Comparison to other countriesReporter: Beina Xu Camera: Beina Xu Video editor: Henning GöllSupervising editor: Kiyo Dörrer

This is the New York City-Boston section, formerly the New York, New Haven & Hartford Railroad (New Haven, NH, or NYNH&H for short). Specifically, this is the junction at South Norwalk, where the Danbury Line (to the eponymous Danbury, CT), diverges/splits off of the NEC, and this is at milepost 41.3; to the west (left) at milepost 41.0 is the station at South Norwalk. Numerous passenger trains can be seen every day, of both the Metro-North Commuter Railroad (M-N, MNCR, or MNCW for short) and of Amtrak (AMTK), including the “Acela Express”, numerous “Northeast Regionals”, and the “Vermonter”. Metro-North is part of New York’s Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA). Besides passenger trains continuing towards or coming from Boston, locals coming to/from the Danbury Line can also be seen. This portion of the NEC, from New York City to New Haven, is owned by Metro-North; east of New Haven to Boston, it is owned by Amtrak. Originally, electrification ended at New Haven, but it was extended to Boston in the late 1990’s in preparation for the inauguration of the “Acela Express” service. Norwalk, being between New York City and New Haven, is on the older 12.5 kilovolts (kV) at 60 Hertz (Hz); from New Haven to Boston the newer electrification is 25 kV at 60 Hz. There are no radio feeds/streams or ATCS layouts/servers available. When’s the next train? Yeah, we get this a lot. You can figure out the next Amtrak passenger train with this handy link: https://bit.ly/2GvDqNS There’s no schedule for freight trains, but some of our more knowledgeable members will provide real-time information when it’s available. Please refrain from asking.
