Some 50,000 livestocks and over 800 Kazak families finished their migration to spring pastures in Ili River Valley from March 5 to 9 with the help of electric trains, which shortened the migrating way to 2.5 hours camparing to 7-day transportation in traditional ways. The electric trains, first used on the migration road, helped a lot to relief the plague of the worst snow weather in 50 years. (Xinhua/Shen Qiao)
