China's railways carried a record high of 10.33 million passengers on Tuesday, the first day of the seven-day national holiday, according to China Railway Corporation.

The volume marked a year-on-year increase of 13 percent, the corporation said.

To cope with surging demands during the period, China has put thirty-one pairs of additional trains into temporary service.

The Ministry of Transport expects more than 610 million passengers to travel on roads and waterways during the period.
