The new service is said to be the longest high-speed railway service in the world.

China’s officials say they plan to expand the high-speed network.  That will include 4 east-west and four north-south bound connections totaling coverage of 9300 kilometers distance in the country.  The network is planned to be finished by 2020.

The grand opening of the new high-speed train service was celebrated Wednesday when the first train started its journey.
