Cargo train services began Saturday between Chengdu, capital of southwest China's Sichuan Province, and Czech capital Prague.

A train carrying 41 containers, mainly television parts, departed at 3:30 p.m. from the international railway terminal in Chengdu.

The cargo worth over 5 million U.S. dollars is to be delivered to a factory of Sichuan-based TV set producer Changhong in Nymburk, Czech Republic.

Huang Dawen, deputy general manager of Changhong, said the company was looking forward to setting up an operations center in Europe.

The cargo train service between Chengdu and Prague will cut delivery to only 13 days, according to Huang.

The Chengdu-Prague line is the seventh international cargo service from Chengdu, following Lodz, Nuremberg, Tilburg, Almaty, Minsk and Moscow.

More than 600 round-trip cargo trains have run this year from the city to European and Central Asian countries, according to Chengdu international railway service corporation.
