First bullet train to autonomous region ready to roll, Zhao Lei reports in Urumqi.

Li Wenqing, deputy head of promotion at the Xinjiang Uygur autonomous region tourism bureau, is eagerly looking forward to the opening of the region's new railway.

"You can see how many tourists the Qinghai-Tibet Railway has carried to Tibet since it became fully operational in 2006," Li said. "There's no doubt that the new line will impart huge momentum to our tourism market."
