High Speed Rail in Yunnan

Does anyone have any current information on plans for high speed rail in Yunnan?

So, the lines that I am 100% sure of are these:

Kunming <> Changsha (via Guiyang) <<completed 2016
Kunming <> Nanning (via Baise) <<under construction

The following lines I've only heard rumors of or read about once but can't find more reliable or up-to-date information.

Kunming <> Bangkok (and then to Kuala Lumpur & Singapore later)
Kunming <> Dhaka (via Baoshan)
Kunming <> Chengdu (via Panzhihua, Xichang, etc.)
Kunming <> Lhasa (via Dali, Lijiang, etc.)

The last two I've only heard of via word-of-mouth but haven't seen anything specific anywhere, so I'm not sure if they're actually in the plans or not.

Any legitimate knowledge or resources on any of these would be greatly appreciated.
