  Direct Train to Connect Shanghai-Lhasa in October
   
2006-09-02

A Shanghai-Lhasa direct train service is expected to open during this year's National Day holiday, sources from the Shanghai Railway Bureau said yesterday.

The new trains will be equipped with an advanced oxygen supply system, to help prevent passengers' altitude sickness while traveling through the high-altitude area. The whole train trip between the two cities is expected to take 52 hours.

Many citizens are pleased about the upcoming service. Wu Ting, a local office worker, said he has been planning a trip to Tibet for a long time, and will definitely try to get a seat on the first Shanghai-Lhasa train, to travel over the seven-day holiday which starts on October 1st.

The first Qinghai-Tibet train pulled into the Lhasa Railway Station in early July of this year. Up until now, people who choose to go to Tibet by train have to start their trip from Beijing, Xining, Lanzhou, Chengdu, or Chongqing, or from the other cities along the railway line.
