China’s most important train connection between Beijing and Shanghai will be served at a top speed of 350 km/h starting from Sept. 21, 2017, reducing the travel time to about four and a half hours for this 1300 km distance. The new Fuxing trains (“Renaissance”) have more arm and leg room, offer free Wi-Fi and better-placed charging plugs for phones and computers near the armrests instead of below the seats.
