Hekou North to Kunming
I can't find any trains from the 8th to the 12th of October for some reason?
It's not a matter of fully booked trains, it's simply not showing up.
Any idea why? Thanks

Yes, indeed. There is no any train in service since that time. It should be the problem of schedule adjustment. I read that the schedule would be adjusted many times a year and they are doing it for some of the routes not. I think this is one of them. They would not cancel the train. You can check again later
