    ***** NOT A TEACHER *****

    Good morning.

    (1) That is very interesting. I did not know that the railroad was 100 years old.

    (2) A newspaper headline might read:

    (The) Yunnan-Vietnam Railroad Celebrates (Its) 100th Anniversary





    This Year Marks 100 Years of (the) Yunnan-Vietnam Rail Link




    100 Years of Yunnan-Vietnam Rail Service (Is) Commemorated










    (3) The words in parentheses would probably not be used in a newspaper headline.

    (4) If you are writing a slogan for a big poster, it would be fine to use all capital letters. Then everyone could read the words more easily.

    (5) Americans prefer "railroad" instead of "railway."

    Have a nice day!
