An expo in Beijing has received much attention from the international railway sector. The event showcases state-of-the-art technology shaping today's railway industry. And China's technology is stealing the show.

Held concurrently with the 7th World congress on High Speed Rail, Modern Railways 2010 displays the most advanced achievements on the world railway scene. The expo has attracted 184 enterprises from 17 countries or regions.

China' railway technology has also wowed visitors at the show, showcasing the country's achievements in railway operation, equipment development and infrastructure construction.

One example is China's self-developed railroad switch for high speed rail.

The technique is vital to trains' safety and steadiness during high-speed travel. The technique has passed quality tests and been put in use.

Zhang Shuguang, Deputy Chief Engineer of Ministry of Railways said "In previous expos, China's enterprises only had large-sized normal equipment on display. But this time around, they are showcasing high-tech products, including some world-leading ones." p
