Ganzhou, Jiangxi province

Ganzhou is a large city of about nine million inhabitants in Jiangxi province. It is a city of great historical importance and enjoys a relatively large tourism industry, which prompted the brief reopening of the Ganzhou Timber railway as a tourist railway. The city lies along the Jing-Jiu railway, a double track mainline that was built to alleviate traffic on the older Beijing - Guangzhou line (Jing-Guang) and runs parallel to it. Electrification of the line was completed in November 2012 but was not activated until early January as negotiations on which province would pay for what share of the power bill was taking place.
