For me, my China Story started with and has continued with railways. I feel delighted to have been on the initial high-speed rail, to have watched the system's growth while benefitting from it for regular travel to distant cities.

Today, as I write this piece, in Tianjin, I look from my hotel window towards the city's main rail- way station. I smile, thinking that is where high-speed started in August 2008 and I was one of those early passengers!
