Beijing Review - - This Week -

A bul­let train passes through fields of rape­seed while run­ning on the Xi’an-Chengdu high-speed rail­way near Jiangyou City, south­west China’s Sichuan Province, on March 14.

The high-speed train, which was put into oper­a­tion last De­cem­ber, has cut the travel time be­tween Xi’an, cap­i­tal of north­west China’s Shaanxi Province, and Chengdu, cap­i­tal of Sichuan Province, by around 11 hours with the jour­ney now tak­ing just four, greatly fa­cil­i­tat­ing tourism and trans­porta­tion be­tween the two cities.
