Members of a railway policewoman security squad head for a high-speed train at Wuhan Railway Station in Wuhan, capital of Central China's Hubei province, Jan 8, 2012.

Made up of eight policewomen at an average age of 26, the squad is the first of its kind to undertake on-the-train security duties along the Wuhan-Guangzhou High-Speed Railway. Starting from Sunday, China's transport system, including its high-speed railway, entered a 40-day period of intensive passenger flow around the time of the Spring Festival.

Every member on the policewoman squad will go through a 60,000-kilometer railway journey during the Spring Festival travel rush.
