Last week, train producer CNR announced a recall of 54 of the trains on the Shanghai-Beijing high-speed rail line. Shanghai also announced that all high-speed traffic (G and D trains) would be frozen after August 15 in order to revamp time tables. It seems, however, that train service remains unfrozen, and they have simply replaced the recalled trains. From Xinhua: “China has moved 21 high-speed CRH 380A (L) trains from other railway lines to ensure the operation of the Beijing-Shanghai high-speed railway after 54 trains used on the route were recalled over safety concerns, a train manufacturer said Sunday.” At this point, it seems just about everybody involved is scrambling to ensure the trains are running, and that they are running safely. New safety checkpoints have also been installed along the Shanghai-Beijing line.
