Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. 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. The railway also passes through the municipalities of Beijing and Tianjin. Unlike most other railways in China, which are run by the Ministry of Railways, the Daqin Railway is operated by Daqin Railway Company Limited, a publicly-traded stock company. The electrified double track line serves as a major conduit for moving coal produced in Shanxi, Shaanxi and Inner Mongolia to Qinhuangdao, China's largest coal-exporting seaport, from there coal is shipped to south China and other countries in Asia.show more
