North-south route for China's bullet train


The world's longest high-speed train route will start operating in China on Wednesday after the completion of final tests.

The Beijing to Guangzhou bullet train is expected to complete the trip between northern and southern China in less than eight hours, with further plans to connect to Hong Kong in the future.
