Railway freight totaled 1.29 billion tonnes during the first four months, an increase of 6.1 percent over the same period last year.
China Railway Corporation, the national railway operator, took in 179 billion yuan in the first three months, up 5.7 percent year on year. Passenger transportation income stood out as the biggest contributor.
