Recalled Chinese bullet trains return to service
Published on Nov 15, 2011
High-speed trains on China’s Beijing-to-Shanghai line that were recalled over safety concerns following a deadly crash will gradually resume service from this week. State-run trainmaker, CNR Corp, recalled 54 trains on the route on 12 August, following repeated delays blamed on equipment failures. The recall also followed the train crash killed 40 people on a high-speed line near the eastern city of Wenzhou in July. Xinhua reported a Ministry of Railways offi cial as saying that problems with the trains had “all been fixed” and that operations will gradually resume from Wednesday.
