The Chengdu to Suining route is a modern high speed passenger route in Southwest China, based on the real route with many enhancements. The route is 146km in length and trains on the route are capable of running at 350 km/h. The fastest train takes only 33 minutes to finish the journey.
Starting from Chengdu, the capital city of Sichuan Province, the line passes through ShibanTan, Huaikou, Longsheng, Jijin, Zitong, Cangshan, Daying and ends in Suining, part of the Chengdu-Chongqing high speed line.
The route is equipped with the CTCS-3 (China Train Control System) signalling system so that trains capable of both 350 km/h and 250 km/h can run on it.
Supplied with the route is 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 CRH1E includes the CTCS-3 cab signalling system.

Chengdu to Suining Highspeed.
The CRH1A is based on Bombardier's Regina family. It was designed by Sifang and Bombardier in Sweden.
The potential maximum speed of the CRH1A 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).
