Passenger railway reaches China's easternmost county


10:57, December 19, 2012

HARBIN, Dec. 18 (Xinhua) -- A new passenger rail line connected China's easternmost county of Fuyuan to inland areas Tuesday, and it is expected to boost the economy and tourism in the China-Russia border town.

A three-month passenger service trial was launched after a 169.4 km-long stretch of track was extended to the county from Qianjin Township, Heilongjiang Province, which has been linked by railway with Harbin, capital city of Heilongjiang.

Over the next three months, two passenger trains will run between Fuyuan and Harbin daily. Each trip takes about 17 hours.

The passenger service is expected to increase the number of passengers to the border town to 1 million annually, said Bo Xiru, director of the Heilongjiang provincial tourism bureau.
