An annual test for every train station across the nation.

And this year, the spring festival travel is the most challenging.

The Spring Festival travel period started on Monday. During its first four days, over 18 million journeys were made, an increase of 8.5 percent on last year. This means there were, roughly, an additional 4 million journeys each day...compared with the average passenger flow in the peak season.
