Rail service resumes between Kunming, Chengdu

By in News on

Rail services between Kunming and Chengdu resumed on Friday, two weeks after being severed by a 6.1-magnitude earthquake that killed 40 and damaged or destroyed more than 900,000 homes in southern Sichuan and northern Yunnan provinces.

A passenger train carrying more than 1,000 passengers departed Kunming on Friday afternoon, relaunching rail traffic between the two provincial capitals just in time for Mid-Autumn festival.

The 18- to 23-hour trip is one of the most tunnel-ridden sections of rail in China.
