Wow, that was fast. Under the auspices of a restructuring of the national train timetable, the Shanghai Railway Ministry has announced that all D and G trains departing from Shanghai Station and Hongqiao Station will halt services for an undisclosed amount of time beginning on August 15. This comes right after the State Council already suspended further train project approvals around China and slowed down most of China’s bullet trains. We’re happy to see sings of caution in the ministries, but can only imagine the transportation nightmare that will result. The Shanghai Railway Ministry promises to have tickets and trains back up and running “as soon as possible.” Let’s hope they’re actually doing this to fix all the glitches.
