Rain halts another train line

FOUR bullet trains from Shanghai to Nanjing were canceled yesterday due to a sudden rainstorm in Nanjing, said the railway operator.

The Shanghai-Beijing high-speed line was not affected, authorities said.

The Shanghai-Nanjing operator said 430 passengers were impacted as the operations on trains G7026, G7078, G7158 and G7164 were stopped by late in the afternoon.

The heavy rainfall in Nanjing hit the track area by 4pm, leaving water and crimping the operation, said officials.

Passengers were transferred to other trains, said Shanghai railway station officials. Emergency workers were making fixes to the affected track before the full operation resumed, said the operator.
