A high-speed railway connecting two major cities in northeast China's Liaoning Province went into operation on Tuesday.

The railway, with a length of over 200 kilometers and boasting a speed of 250 kilometers per hour, links Shenyang and Dandong city.

Many people queuing to get a ticket in Dandong said they were happy about this long-awaited line.

"I kept my attention on it some ten days ago, hoping to take a trip to Shenyang."

The high-speed railway is expected to handle 50,000 passengers at its peak, according to the Shenyang Railway Bureau.

Zhang Haifeng, deputy general manager of Shenyang Railroad International Travel Agency co. said the line would create a surge of tourists.

"The high-speed railway provides convenience to travelers. People will become familiar with this new transport means and tourist sites in the first year. And there are some supporting facilities that need to be improved. Our preliminary estimation shows that the number of tourists is expected to grow by 15 percent in the first year."

The train also provides different types of seats to satisfy passengers' demands.
