Guangshen Railway or Guangzhou-Shenzhen Railway, also known as the Chinese Section of the Canton-Kowloon Railway in 1911-1949, is a railway in Guangdong Province of the People's Republic of China, between Guangzhou and Shenzhen. It is operated by Guangshen Railway Company Limited, a subsidiary of Guangzhou Railway Group Co. Ltd.. With a length of 147 kilometres, it was the first railway in the People's Republic of China to reach the speed of 220 km/h in some sections, though it is limited to about 200 km/h during commercial operation. Now it has four tracks between Guangzhou East and Shenzhen railway station. Line 1 and 2 are up-direction and down-direction 200-km/h passenger lines for CRH EMU respectively, and Line 3 and 4 are up-direction and down-direction 160-km/h mixed passenger and freight line respectively. In order to reduce the interference to passenger trains in the daytime from lower -speed freight trains, most freight trains will be scheduled to run at night.
