A train runs past the Badong station along the
Yichang-Wanzhou railway in central China's Hubei
Province, Dec. 22, 2010. The Yichang-Wanzhou railway,
linking Yichang in central China's Hubei Province and
Wanzhou in southwest China's Chongqing Municipality,
started operation Wednesday. The 377-kilometer-long
railway, considered to be China's most difficult and
expensive to build, snakes through 159 tunnels and 253
bridges in southwestern China's mountainous regions.
