The Ministry of Railways has completed next year's train organizational diagram. The biggest highlight of the new diagram is to adapt to the new changes of a large number of high-speed rail line that are set to go into operation. Multiple-unit trains will be substantially increased to further expand the coverage of high-speed rail trains.

The new diagram reasonably arranges running programs for multiple-unit trains on new high-speed rail lines. Twenty pairs of multiple-unit trains in total will be added to the Changchun-Jilin line and 39 pairs of multiple-unit trains will go to the Guangzhou-Zhuhai line, 28 of which will be run in the initial period. Also, 12 pairs of multiple unit trains will be added Hainan-Donghuan line, 10 of which will be run in initial stages.

In addition, adjustments have been made to the diagram of the high-speed rail lines that have been opened and are currently operating to increase more pairs of multiple-unit trains: 13 pairs of multiple unit trains will be added on the Zhengzhou-Xi'an line, of which 7 pairs of multiple-unit trains will be run in the initial stages, including two pairs of sleeper multiple-unit trains. Fourteen pairs of multiple-unit trains will be added on the Hefei-Wuhan line, including two pairs of sleeper multiple-unit trains, and six pairs of multiple-unit trains will be run in the initial stages.

It is reported that the new train running diagram will be implemented at midnight on Jan. 11, 2011.
