World's longest railway route - China-Spain freight train: World's longest railway route | The Economic Times
a uniform gauge is the way to go on the silk road.
unit cost may be rather high compared to sea freight which is often on mega ships carrying as many as 18,000 containers with multiple calls of ports on Asia Europe strings.

China to Spain via pakistan lolllllll
It may be higher for shipments from Chinese Eastern provinces to Spain, however, from the Northern provinces it may be cheaper, because than they can reduce the road transport cost. Also think of the cost advantages for shipment from China to Russia, Belarus and Poland. Or from Russia to Spain. It is a boon to that sector.
Efficient container transfer system is possible at the place of gauge change. Changing tracks is difficult.
Long trains of 100 containers are possible which will reduce the costs. Trains are more flexible compared to ships as trains serve inland destinations directly.
I hope China has a passenger train service too.
The Chinese come cheap.
If they show their cheapness, then it will be a roaring business for all to go to Europe and vice versa.
