High-speed rail connects North Korea border city
(2 mins ago)

China opened a new high-speed rail line to link Dandong, which borders North Korea and Shenyang, capital of northeastern Liaoning Province.
The Shenyang-Dandong Highway Railway will cut the train-travel time between the two cities to about 1 hour from 3 and-a-half hours, according to the Shenyang Railway Administration.
Trains on the 208-km line will run at a speed of 250 km/h.
More than 10,000 people visit North Korea via Dandong, the largest Chinese city bordering the country, each year. In May, a train tour to North Korea via Dandong was launched to serve Chinese tourists.—Xinhua
