I had a quick walk around the train, checking on its facilities from excellent toilet units to a compact cafe car. An onboard announcement had me returning to my seat. Just over twenty minutes out from Beijing we were already slowing down for our on-time arrival into Tianjin! The station, close to Haihe River, with a long history serving the city, had been considerably upgraded to handle the new, streamlined services.
