On September 30, the Jianning-Guanzhaishan section of Pucheng-Meizhou Railway and the Xingguo-Qingliu section of Xingguo-Quanzhou Railway were put into full operation simultaneously. CASCO provides the industry-leading centralized traffic control system CTC3.0 of CASCO for the entire two railways.
The Jianning-Guanzhaishan section of Pucheng-Meizhou Railway starts from the Jianningxianbei Railway Station of Xiangtang-Putian Railway and ends at the GuanZhaiShannan Railway Station of Ganzhou-Rujin-Longyan Railway, which passes by four administrative counties, i.e. Jianning, Ninghua, Qingliu and Liancheng, with a total length of 162 km and 16 stations. Xingguo-Quanzhou Railway starts from Xingguo Station of Beijing-Kowloon Railway, passes by Yudu, Ningdu, Shicheng and other counties in Jiangxi Province, and ends in Quanzhou, Fujian, with a total length of 464.16km and 33 stations, of which the main line of Xingguo-Qingliu section is 174.21km long.

Xingguo-Quanzhou Railway and Pucheng-Meizhou Railway uses the same rails in Ninghua-Qingliu, Fujian, which is now connected to the Xiangtang-Putian Railway in the north and to the Ganzhou-Rujin-Longyan Railway in the south. The railways connect Northwest Fujian and the hinterland of East Fujian into the national railway network, forming a new channel for the transport development in Fujian and Jiangxi. The full operation of two railways put an end to the history of absence of railway in four old revolutionary area bases, namely Ningdu, Shicheng, Ninghua and Qingliu in Jiangxi and Fujian, and bring about new vitality to the social and economic development of the areas along the railways while helping promote the construction of the whole-Fujian railway circle and the coastal railway network in Southeast China, which is of great significance.
