Passengers are in a stable mood, although train services were halted by an explosion that happened near the rail line in Shandong province Tuesday morning.

Railway service of the Beijing-Shanghai high-speed railway was restored at noon today after it was forced to a standstill this morning due to an explosion in Jinan, capital city of Shandong province, according to the official micro-blog of Jinan Railway Bureau.

A plant which is said to produce methanol materials exploded at 9:30 am this morning at Huaiyin District of Jinan, local media reported.

Fire caused by the explosion at the plant was put out one hour after the explosion took place and there are no known casualties as of noon, Jinan Times reported.
