X2000 in China

Swedish ABB (later Adtranz and then sold to Bombardier) had big expectations during the 1990s of exporting the tilting High-speed train X2000. In the end, only ONE trainset was sold and that was to China. Between year 1998 and 2010, one trainset (called Xinshisu 新时速) was in traffic between Hongkong, Shenzhen and Guangzhou. In 2010, this train (and the export dream) was put to the final rest. Picture below shows the train in Shatian Station 沙田站, Hongkong.
