Every day, Chinese trains take millions of people to various stops around the country. Last year, the government stopped the commuting for a day along one stretch so their troops could conduct exercises designed to ship the People’s Liberation Army to the border via high-speed train, according to National Interest.
Equipment was also moved quickly from Lanzhou to Xinjiang, which has a large number of ethnic Uyghur Muslim militants. The troops could also deploy rapidly to the border with India, which is a rival of China, or Myanmar, Tajikistan, and Kyrgyzstan, which are all unstable.
