Daqin Coal Railway (China)


Daqin Railway, also known as the Daqin Line , is a 653 km coal-transport railway in north China. Its name is derived from its two terminal cities, Datong, a coal mining center in Shanxi province, and Qinhuangdao, of Hebei province, on the Bohai Sea.

Freight trains operating on the Daqin Line can carry up to 20,000 metric tons, the largest carrying capacity in China. The line carried 150 million tons of freight in 2004, 200 million tons in 2005, 250 million tons in 2006 and 300 million tonnes in 2007. Pretty impressive.
The GR is Datong.
