The Beijing–Harbin high-speed railway (simplified Chinese: 京哈客运专线; traditional Chinese: 京哈客運專線; pinyin: Jīng-Hā Kèyùn Zhuān Xiàn) is a high-speed railway corridor partly operational in the People's Republic of China, announced in 2008 as part of the "Four Verticals and Four Horizontals" master railway network plan. It is part of the CRH's system of passenger dedicated lines, connecting Beijing Main Station and Harbin Station. It will be 1700 km long. The Beijing–Harbin Railway, a lower-speed railway, will run largely parallel to the line.
Currently, the Beijing–Harbin high-speed railway is partly operational. It is made up of the Harbin–Dalian high-speed railway (operational), the Beijing–Shenyang high-speed railway (under construction), and the Panjin–Yingkou high-speed railway (operational).
The main route of the Beijing–Harbin high-speed railway begins as the Beijing–Shenyang high-speed railway to the city of Shenyang. At Shenyang, the main route continues as part of the Harbin–Dalian high-speed railway, which travels from Harbin to Dalian via Shenyang. The remaining section of the Harbin–Dalian high-speed railway between Shenyang and Dalian serves as a branch route to Dalian as well as Yingkou, which is one of the termini of the Panjin–Yingkou high-speed railway. Here the Panjin–Yingkou high-speed railway is a very short branch to the city of Panjin. At Panjin, the railway connects to the Qinhuangdao–Shenyang high-speed railway, which is part of the Beijing–Harbin Railway.
