The success of the Tianjin high-speed service paved the way for ongoing construction of a nation- wide fast rail network now 36,000 kilometers but with considerable expansion planned. This I feel is one of China's greatest recent achievements.

Gone are the days of long queues at station ticket offices, booking now via smartphones. On-board, smartly dressed coach attendants are testimony to the very high levels of service now found across the country's railways.
