German railway firm to offer goods connection from China

BERLIN -- Germany's Deutsche Bahn railway company said Tuesday it could run a commercial 10,300-kilometer freight route from inland China to Europe this year if there was enough demand. Deutsche Bahn's announcement came after a test train trip from Chongquing, China successfully ended late Monday in Duisburg, Germany.

It was Deutsche Bahn's second attempt to open up the rail connection as a faster alternative to using ships. Previous China-Europe tests, via Russia's Trans-Siberian Railway, were 2,000 kilometers longer and failed to attract customers. The new, more southerly route skirts southern Mongolia, crossing from China to Kazakhstan, Russia, Belarus and Poland.
