Title

"Chemin de fer Chinois de L'est" train schedule for the Chinese Eastern Railway, Winter 1908-09

Description

The Chinese Eastern Railway was a single tracked line providing a shortcut for the world's longest railroad, the Trans-Siberian Railway from near the Siberian city of Chita via Harbin across northern inner Manchuria to the Russian port of Vladivostok. This route drastically reduced the travel distance required along the originally proposed main northern route to Vladivostok. (Source)
