A railway line in southwest China has returned to normal operations, after being cut by a landslide last Saturday.

Today, parts of the timetable were restored and eleven trains are operating between Chengdu, the capital city of Sichuan Province, and the neighbouring Chongqing Municipality.

Passenger Mr. Liu said, "I originally planned to head to Chongqing 10:30 this morning. If the line couldn't be restored, I would have taken a bus or changed my journey time, which would have been inconvenient. Now my trip won't be delayed."

Zhao He, mamager of Chengdu Railway Station, said, "There are a large number of high-speed trains. The repaired section of track is currently limiting speed. So some of the normal-speed trains need to make way for the high-speed ones."
