China's easternmost high-speed rail line — running between Mudanjiang and Jiamusi in Heilongjiang province — launched service on Monday as train No D8857 left Mudanjiang and train No D8858 left Jiamusi simultaneously at 8:58 am, according to China Railway Harbin Group.

It includes seven stops — Mudanjiang, Linkou South, Jixi West, Qitaihe West, Huan East, Shuangyashan West and Jiamusi.

Construction of the 372-kilometer line began in November 2016. It is designed for trains running up to 250 kilometers per hour, cutting travel time between Mudanjiang and Jiamusi from seven hours to two.

Initially, 18 pairs of trains will operate daily.
