Power failure again delays Beijing-Shanghai bullet trains

TRAINS were delayed again today due to a power glitch on the newly opened Shanghai-Beijing High-speed Railway, two days after widespread delays on the same line. At least eight bullet trains reported delays of up to one and a half hours by noon. The power outage happened around 11am in a section in Suzhou in east China's Shandong Province, said the railway operator. The problem was fixed by 1pm and all the services resumed, railway officials said. During Sunday's service interruption, thousands of passengers were stranded as railway workers raced to fix the grid failure caused by a thunderstorm in Shandong.
