X2000 - Guangshen Railway Company Ltd, China  Contributor's Pick!       
China also purchased a X 2000 train named "Xinshisu" (New Speed). The train served as Guangzhou-Kowloon Through Train on the Guangshen Railway from 1998 to 2007. It was delivered to Sichuan Province in August 2007. However, due to the 2008 Sichuan earthquake, Chengdu Railway Bureau needed to rebuild the railway networks in Sichuan Province. Also, the authority could not carry the maintenance costs of the train. It was therefore returned to Guangshen Railway Company Limited in late December 2008. In 2012 the train was purchased by SJ and was shipped back to Sweden. Part of this train is now in the backyard of Swedens railway museum at Gävle.
