They would be taken on Jingzhang High-speed Railway back to Beijing North Railway Station.
Train K1178, carrying 841 passengers and 30 crew members, had stopped at Yanhecheng Station due to downpours. All are now safe.
An additional 32 crew members have been dispatched to provide food and water to passengers.
After repairs, the railway line between Jiuzhuangwo and Yanhecheng stations on the Fengtai -Shacheng line has been reopened.
Persistent severe rainstorms caused by the remnants of Typhoon Doksuri lashed northern China for the fourth day and caused extensive flooding since Saturday, leading to the loss of at least 20 lives.
