BEIJING - A subsidiary of China South Locomotive and Rolling Stock Corporation Limited (CSR) announced Tuesday that it has won a bid to provide high-speed trains for the Hong Kong section of an inter-city high-speed railway connecting Hong Kong, Shenzhen and Guangzhou.

The company said that it will supply nine sets of high-speed trains for Hong Kong, each set consisting of eight carriages. The trains are designed to reach a speed of 350 km/h.

Subsidiary CSR Sifang said the high-speed trains will be based on its independently-made CRH 380A-model trains. The company said it will insure the safety and reliability of the trains while seeking to make further improvements.

CSR is China's leading train manufacturer. The inter-city railway will be 142 kilometers in length upon completion. The railway is expected to completed by 2015.
