China Train Types
China’s trains are classified as:
G trains (high-speed trains, “Gaosu 高速” in Chinese) are the fastest and most comfortable trains in China with a speed of 250–400 km/h, for example G101 from Beijing South to Shanghai Hongqiao.
D trains (bullet trains, “Dongche 动车” in Chinese) are the next fastest trains in China after G trains, usually running at a speed of 200–250 km/h, for example D333 from Beijing South to Qingdao.
C trains (“Chengji 城际” in Chinese) are high-speed intercity trains running for a short distance between two nearby cities with a top speed of 350 km/h, e.g. C2003 from Beijing South to Tianjin.
Z trains (“Zhida kuaiche 直达快车” in Chinese) are direct express trains with a top speed of 160 km/h, for example Z19 from Beijing West to Xi’an.
T trains (“Tekuai lieche 特快列车” in Chinese) are express trains travelling at a top speed of 140 km/h. There are usually a limited number of stops along their routes, e.g. T321 from Shenyang North to Baotou.
K trains (“Kuaisu lieche 快速列车” in Chinese) are literally called ‘fast trains’ with a top speed of 120 km/h, e.g. K5 from Xi’an to Chengdu.
Trains with just numbers are the slowest trains in China, running at a top speed of 100 km/h, e.g. the 2063 from Qinhuangdao to Linfen.
