Xinhua)  09:15, October 11, 2012

Photo taken on Oct. 10, 2012 shows the outdoor scene of the Changchun West Railway Station, a stop of the new Harbin-Dalian High-Speed Railway, in Changchun, capital of northeast China's Jilin Province. China on Oct. 8 showcased the world's first alpine high-speed rail line, which threads through the country's three northeastern provinces. The new high-speed railway is expected to reduce travel time between Harbin, capital of northeast China's Heilongjiang Province, and Dalian, a city in northeast China's Liaoning Province, to four hours. The weather-proof CRH380B bullet trains serving the line can accomodate temperatures from minus 40 degrees Celsius to 40 degrees Celsius above zero. The rail line, featuring 24 stations, is expected to go into normal operation by the end of the year.(Xinhua/Lin Hong)
