    Chairs are equipped with lights, entertainment controls, electric sockets and tables but no USB.

    Any comparisons between the rolling stock?

    For going from Hung Hom to Guangzhou there is/was a marked difference in the HK trains versus the China trains.

    But I can see a plug socket under the seat. So, just need an adapter.

    How does one get to Sichuan? On that list of destinations I don't see either Sichuan province, Chonqing or Chengdu but I assume the train can get me there?

    You can take a train from Hong Kong to Zhengzhoudong and continue to Chengdu from there. Should be a 13 hr journey though.

    ...ouch. That's..painful. I think a flight will keep being the preferred route.

    Actually, there's a faster route via Guiyang. Leave Hong Kong at noon, be in Chengdu at 10:30pm or 9pm in Chongqing.

    It will be interesting to read the experiential review of the new high speed train when it starts operating on 23rd Sep?
