China Railway Taiyuan Group Co., Ltd. inspector Yang Zehua checks the height of the steel rail on the Datong section of the Daqin Railway in Datong, north China's Shanxi Province, July 9, 2019. As the temperature rises, more than 400 patrol inspectors work along the Daqin Railway on a daily basis to ensure the transportation safety. A total of 218.2 million tonnes of cargo were transported via Daqin Railway, a major coal railway in northern China, in the first half of 2019, down 3.16 percent year on year, according to the railway's operator Daqin Railway Co., Ltd. The 653-km railway, which links the city of Datong in coal-rich Shanxi Province with the port city of Qinhuangdao, Hebei Province, was officially launched on Dec. 28, 1988. (Xinhua/Cao Yang)
