High-speed train services canceled due to poor sales

THE rail operator of the newly opened Shanghai-Beijing High-speed railway had to cancel four train services due to the poor sales -- only three weeks after the operation started on June 30.

The cancelled the services were riding in the rail section between Beijing and Jinan city in northern China.

The bullet train services -- G181, D242, D242 and D241 -- are expected to stop by Monday (July 25) next week, said the operator.

Up to 90 percent of the tickets on some services were not bought in advance before Monday.

The railway ministry said it will take two to three months for the new rail line to go through a "break-in" period after a series breakdowns were reported in the past weeks.
