New trains are seen at the workshop in the Tangshan Railway Vehicle Co., Ltd. (TRC) in Tangshan, north China's Hebei Province, June 28, 2011. Built in 1881, the TRC, used to be the Tangshan Locomotive and Rolling Stock Works, was considered as the birthplace and cradle of China's train manufacturing industry, where manufactured the country's first steam locomotive named "Rocket". Since 1994, the TRC had been one of the major train providers to meet the country's demand of skyrocketing train speed. China raised train speed nationwide for six times as of 2007. In 2008, China's first domestically produced bullet train, CRH3, was unveiled in the TRC, which is designed to run at a speed of 350 km per hour. Two years later, based on CRH3, the TRC developed a new type bullet train CRH380BL with the max operational speed of 380 km per hour. On Jan. 9, 2011, a CRH380BL train, made in the TRC, set a world record of 487.3 km per hour during a trial run on the Beijing-Shanghai high-speed railway. By far, many CRH3 trains made in TRC ran on China's high-speed inter-city railways like Beijing-Tianjin line, Wuhan-Guangzhou line and Shanghai-Nanjing line. The new CRH380BL trains will serve as the main force on the Beijing-Shanghai high-speed railway. (Xinhua/Wu Hongdao)
