This photo shows electricity pylons from the window of a high-speed train during a journey organised for journalists to showcase a newly-built section of track through Hebei province, south of Beijing on December 22, 2012. China was showing off to the media the final link of the world's longest high-speed rail route, set to open on December 26, stretching from Beijing to the southern Chinese city of Guangzhou. Travelling at around 300 kph, trains on the new route are expected to cover the 2,298-kilometre (1,425-mile) journey in a third of the current time from 22 hours to eight.
