Lanzhou Bureau - Lanzhou to Wuweinan

The railway from Lanzhou to Wuweinan forms a vital link in the route connecting the northwestern province of Xinjiang with the rest of China. This gallery shows the line in steam days, when it was single track and steeply graded, as well as the new, fast, electrified, double track main line completed in mid 2006 with the opening of the 21 km Wushaoling base tunnel.
