Nanyue Express

25Z Passenger Carriages

Relevant information can be found on Wikipedia. However, only Chinese version is available so I would like to have a brief introduction.
It was exclusively designed during 90s for running in Guangzhou-Shenzhen Line (also the through trains between Guangzhou and Hong Kong). It is the most commonly seen Chinese passenger carriage in Hong Kong. It can speed at 160 km/h, and usually powered by DF11. There are the meanings of different type abbreviations:

  • “RZ” – Soft Seat.
  • “RZ1” – Higher Class Soft Seat
  • “CA” – Dinning Car
  • “XL” – Luggage Car
  • “KD” – Generator Car (Electricity of the train is supplied by this car but not the locomotive)
