Lancun–Yantai Railway

The Lancun−Yantai Railway or Lanyan Railway (simplified Chinese: 蓝烟铁路; traditional Chinese: 藍煙鐵路; pinyin: Lányān Tiělù) is a double-track, electrified railway in Shandong Province, China. The line runs from Yantai on the north coast of the Shandong Peninsula southwest to Lancun, near Qingdao, on the Jiaozhou-Jinan Railway and has a total length of 183.71 km.[1] It was built from 1953 to 1956[1] and double-tracked in 2001.[2] Electrification work, completed in 2010, raised train speed on the line from 80 km/h to 120 km/h.[1]
