A Chinese electric multiple unit train reached a speed of 385 kilometers per hour and passed a high speed test, a major step before it begins formal operations on Nov 18.

Designed and manufactured by CSR Qingdao Sifang Co, Ltd, China owns the independent intellectual property rights to the train which is designed to operate at a standard speed of 350 km/h.

It was tested under complicated conditions, including on bridges, in tunnels and on slopes and turns.
