Well, whether or not Turkey can really be counted as part of 'Europe' is another debate entirely. P.S. I'm not talking geographically.

Because realistically, it just wouldn't happen within "Europe". Too much protectionism under the banner of "safety concerns" or whatever else they choose to call it.

Nanjing West is pretty awesome, definitely one of the icons of the Republic of China.
People in Nanjing are quite fond of the memory of the city as her capital.

Yes. People were gathering to take picture of this century old station. It'll be built into a railway museum.

They better see through this project because this is where Dr. Sun Yat Sen's coffin arrived, maybe the ROC can also chip in on the renovation cost?

Does China still run those steam engines? Chinese passenger rail fascinates me. running both steam engines and modern HSR at the same time.

Many Nanjing's historical buildings which used to be ROC government and business offices were restored with partial ROC public/private funding throughout the years in the forms of "donations."

There is no scheduled commercial passenger services in China that still runs on steam engines.

Are these "donations" from the Taiwan government or from the Nationalist Party of China? Either way there's a lot of sensitivity.
