    The railway traverses countless gorges, mountains, hill peaks and unstable geographic structures.

    Most sophisticated tunneling techniques were applied in the construction, still with scores of lives lost due to the hardship of this project.

    Thanks for sharing this thread. Regarding the map above, can you please post one in English? I think I had said this to you earlier, post stuff that people can understand here.

    there is caption I translated. and a map in the video
    and by the way, maybe Chinese is not as a taboo, look at what they are learning now

    70 of 380, not a bad portion of them, isn't it?

    Chinese is not known to all of our posters who are not Chinese.

    No language is a taboo. But if people don't know the language, it is nor correct to post it without a translation in a foreign language forum.

    There is a good possibility that Chinese untranslated stuff will get deleted.

    Children love trains.

    Many loved chu chu trains when young.

    it's cakewalk building the Kunming-Dali-Lijiang-Xianggelila-Linzhi-Lhasa line compared with this marvel of engineering。

    The planned Chengdu-Lhasa railway is more or less on par with this feat of ingenuity and hardship。
