BEIJING, Jun 28 (FAM) – China’s new bullet train model “Fuxing” will be mass-produced, said the Shanghai Railway Bureau (SRB) on June 26. The new high-speed train debuted on the Shanghai-Beijing line on Monday.
The current model “Hexie” began service 10 years ago, and has gone through half of its projected life span. The second generation bullet trains are expected to replace their predecessors when the latter reaches the end of its life.
