Basic Information about Train Types in China

Chinese trains can be divided into seven classes according to their running speed and service. You can tell the train class by the letter that is prefixed to the train number.

G, D, and C trains are high-speed trains. Z, T, K, and four-digit number trains are non-bullet trains, or regular trains.

G Trains (Chinese: 高速; Pinyin: Gaosu)

G trains are the fastest high-speed train in China. The top running speed is 350–400 kph (217–248 mph).

G trains usually run on long-distance and middle-distance rail routes, including Beijing–Shanghai, Beijing–Xi’an, and Shanghai–Guangzhou. High-speed trains to and from Hong Kong also include G trains.

D Trains (Chinese: 动车; Pinyin: Dongche)

D trains are also called EMU trains. This is the second fastest train type in China, with a top speed between 200 kph (124 mph) and 250 kph (155 mph).

D trains mainly run on middle and short-distance rail lines, such as Chengdu–Chongqing, Guangzhou–Guiyang, and Pingyao–Xi’an. On some routes, ticket fares for D trains are cheaper than ticket fares for G trains.

Overnight high-speed trains also include D trains, such as D701/D702 between Beijing and Shanghai.

C Trains (Chinese: 城际动车; Pinyin: Chengji Dongche)

C trains are intercity trains, which operate between neighboring cities, such as Beijing and Tianjin, Changsha and Zhuzhou, and Guangzhou and Shenzhen. C trains have lower top running speeds of 200 kph (124 mph).

Z Trains (Chinese: 直达; Pinyin: Zhida)

Z trains are also called non-stop express trains. They are the fastest among regular trains. They operate on long-distance rail lines between major cities, with only a few main stops along the way.

Z trains have a top running speed of 160 kph (99 mph). They mainly run between capital cities, such as Beijing–Shanghai, Beijing–Xi’an, and Beijing–Nanning.

T Trains (Chinese: 特快; Pinyin: Tekuai)

T trains are called express trains, with a limited number of stops along the way. This is the second fastest regular train type. The top speed is 140 kph (87 mph).

T trains travel on more rail lines than Z trains. Beijing–Shanghai, Xi’an–Chengdu, Guangzhou–Shanghai, and Changsha–Shenzhen railways have T trains available.

K Trains (Chinese: 快速; Pinyin: Kuaisu)

K trains are fast trains traveling at a top speed of 120 kph (74 mph). They have more stops along the way than T trains.

Ordinary Trains (Four Digits) (Chinese: 普快; Pinyin: Pukuai)

Ordinary train numbers are made up of four digits. There is no letter prefixed to the train number. This is the slowest type of train in China. The trains stop at almost every city along the rail route. At present, this type of train is rarely used.
