New bullet trains hit tracks in China, rebranded for Xi
You are no-longer traveling in harmony
China’s busiest high-speed rail link, connecting Shanghai and Beijing, saw two new trains go into operation on Monday, reported China Daily, and you might notice a change.
Those who have experienced high-speed train travel in China, will no doubt remember the serene voice welcoming you to “Harmony,” the moniker given to the trains until now.
The new trains, however, will now be called “Rejuvenation,” a name befitting of the Xi Jinping era and his program for the “great rejuvenation of the Chinese nation.”
