The train, with a standard speed of 400 km per hour, can cope with different rail systems on international routes, making international rail travel more convenient. It can operate at temperatures between minus 50 and plus 50 degrees Celsius, under different traction power supply systems and railway transportation standards of different countries. There are currently four main railway track standards around the world. When ordinary trains run between countries with different gauges, they need to replace their train bogies, which takes time and effort. As the new CRRC train is equipped with gauge-changing bogies, it can change its rail mode during cross-border travel, greatly improving the efficiency of travel across rail systems.
