The 26km Hong Kong section of the Express Rail Link (XRL) was built entirely underground which connects with the high speed rail network underneath Shenzhen River at Mai Po. In order for the trains to run smoothly across the Hong Kong / Shenzhen boundary at high speed, various electrical and mechanical systems have to be carefully designed for high degree of compatibility. This paper will discuss how Mainland system integration works with focus on train, signalling, communications & main control systems. Progress of cross boundary train testing would be updated and some challenges would be shared.
