403 more trains were temporarily added to the railways system. As of Sunday, more than 100 million passengers had taken the train during the so called "Spring transportation" period.

That is an increase of 14.3 percent over the last year. Authorities say travellers should plan ahead of their journeys as blizzards and strong winds in some areas may disrupt their travel.
