He whole line of the Guangzhou-Shenzhen-Hong Kong Express Rail Link has been put into official operation, as the Hong Kong section of the high-speed railway entered into service on Sunday morning.

A bullet train G5736 left Hong Kong West Kowloon Station at 7 a.m. on Sunday for Shenzhen North Railway Station in Guangdong Province and arrived at the Shenzhen station in 19 minutes.

Some 500 passengers, including those from media, came to the Hong Kong West Kowloon Station to take the first train.

The carriage was quite spacious and the seats could be adjusted to face front or back, according to Mr. Leung, a Hong Kong citizen who were aboard the train.

"It (the ride) is quite comfortable. In the future, I would like to go to some places further, like Beijing for example. It takes only a few hours after all," the 70-year-old man told Xinhua.

The rail link could bring more opportunities to Hong Kong and "I feel quite excited to witness such a historic moment," said Leung.

Earlier in the morning, the high-speed train G5711 left Shenzhen North Railway Station at 6:44 a.m. for Hong Kong West Kowloon Station, and arrived at the Hong Kong station at 7:03 a.m..

At 6:48 a.m., high-speed train G6501 left Guangzhou South Railway Station to head for Hong Kong West Kowloon Station and arrived at the Hong Kong station in 55 minutes.
