Chinese New Year 2018 — From The Perspective Of Trains In China ‘Ready-to-Roll’.
Click to ENLARGE.
China is expecting 390 million people to travel by train over the 2018 “Year of the Dog” New Year period — that started ‘yesterday’.
That is 65 million MORE PEOPLE than the ENTIRE U.S. population.
Just think of that. Makes the so called Thanksgiving travel crush seem rather tame.
Yes, they have the rail system to cope with this PLUS a huge fleet of genuinely high-speed trains. We equate Japan with high-speed bullet trains but it is CHINA rather than Japan that currently has the fastest bullet train — a train capable of travelling 210 mph!
So, take a second to marvel.
