The Southwest China High Speed Rail Network, with a length of over 570 km, is composed of several high-speed passenger lines and connects the two most important cities in Southwest China - Chengdu, the capital city of Sichuan Province, and Chongqing, one of the four municipalities in China. The network takes railway travel time between Chengdu and Chongqing down from 10 hours on the previous railway to just one hour! The network also connects Suining, Nanchong, Guang’an and other major cities.
The network is built to Chinese high speed railway standards and trains on the route are capable of running up to 350 km/h. The fastest train, the CRH380 Series, takes only 57 mins to finish the journey between Chengdu and Chongqing.
The network is equipped with the CTCS-3 (China Train Control System) signalling system and both 350km/h and 250km/h trains can run on this route.
The network features 22 stations and this package for Train Simulator also includes the CRH1A EMU (Electro Motive Unit) that is designed for commuter use at the stations along the route. This unit is capable of running at 250 km/h (155 mph) but in normal service runs at 220 km/h (137 mph). The CRH1A also includes the CTCS-3 signalling system.
A CRH1E Sleeper EMU with sleeper cabin passenger view is also included.
12 Standard and four Free Roam scenarios are included to allow you to fly at high speed on the ground and enjoy the beautiful scenery of the Sichuan Basin area.

The CRH1A is based on Bombardier's Regina family. It was designed by Sifang and Bombardier in Sweden. Its potential maximum speed is 250 km/h (155 mph) but in normal use the maximum speed is always restricted by the computerised control system, so the maximum speed in service is usually 220 km/h (137 mph).
