9 pairs of bullet trains test Beijing-Shanghai rail

THE Shanghai-Beijing High-speed Railway began its month-long trial today with the first bullet train leaving the city's Hongqiao Railway Station at 8:45am. Nine pairs of trains will run the route today. VIP carriages were still seen in each train with drawn curtains. Earlier reports said VIP carriages would be reconfigured to leave out luxury furnishings and put in more seats. Railway officials said the fastest service was expected to clock 4 hours and 48 minutes to complete the 1,318-kilometer journey. But information about ticket prices is still not available to the public.
