"(CNN) — China has just hurtled past another milestone in its vast high-speed railway expansion plans.
As the countdown to the 2022 Beijing Winter Olympics continues, the new 108-mile high-speed railway line connecting the capital with Olympic host city Zhangjiakou has just entered service, cutting the travel time between the two from three hours to 47 minutes.
But this isn't just another bullet train."
Nice little video on HSR history as well.
