Six China-made high-speed trains will be put into use for the first time at the end of this year along the Chengdu to Chongqing line.

With eight cars, CRH380D is 215.3 meters in length, 4.16 meters in height and 3.3 meters in width. It has business class, first class and second class seating, with a capacity of about 560 passengers.
