By the end of the third quarter of 2021, China Railway Group has lost 69.8 billion yuan, and by the end of the third quarter, the total debt is about 5.84 trillion yuan. If this continues, the later Stage of China Railway Group may really be unable to support.China’s high-speed railways that are still profitable are beijing-Shanghai, Shanghai-Nanjing, Ning-Hangzhou, Guangzhou-Shenzhen-Hong Kong, Shanghai-Hangzhou and Beijing-Tianjin.It is the Beijing-Shanghai and Guangzhou-Shenzhen-Hong Kong lines that have made substantial profits. Notice that Beijing, Shanghai, Guangzhou, Shenzhen and Hong Kong are the most economically suitable cities for high-speed rail.Second, nanjing, Hangzhou, Tianjin, the second tier cities also deserve high-speed rail, at least not at a loss.In fact, it can be seen from the routes of these high-speed railways that they are all in economically developed areas. Therefore, the passenger flow of these routes is abundant, which makes the high-speed railways here maintain a profitable state.The rest was a loss.After that, many of the loss-making high-speed trains will gradually be slowed down in China.This is mainly to save costs and minimize the loss of HSR.You should know that high-speed rail not only needs to spend a huge amount of money in maintenance, repair and other aspects, but also costs more in operation, so if there is not enough passenger flow, high-speed rail will continue to lose money
