Setting off at 10: 35 am, the train stops in 7 counties - Akto, Yengisar, Shache, Zepu, Yecheng, Pishan and Moyu - which are all populated mainly by Uygurs.

The service began on May 15. Hairuiguli Osman took the first No 7559 train from Kashgar back to her home in Hotan together with 22 relatives after attending a family wedding. She was surprised to find that the train ticket was only one third of the bus fare.
