Photos from my second Tibet train trip, October 2008

For the full gallery, see http://j.mp/MIts4 (first tibet trip in july 2006) or http://j.mp/yll5x (second tibet trip in october 2008) There's GPS exif data in most of the photos below.

Waiting Lounge 5, Checking Gate 4, Beijing West Railway Station
Train T27 leaves Beijing West from the south side of platform 2


Inside Car 5, the soft sleeper car, car series number RW-25T 554454


Outside of the dining car, car series number CA-25T 893429


Delingha Railway Station on Qinghai-Tibet Railway, between Xining and Golmud; This is the new station opened just a few months ago, 3 or 4 kilometers south to the old one


The square in front of Delingha Railway Station, the new station is much farther away from the urban area than the old one


The second floor in the waiting lounge of Delingha Railway Station


Platform 1, Delingha Railway Station; Delingha is an important and big station along the line, only after Lhasa and Golmud, and perhaps Nagqu


Wulan Railway Station; this station is much smaller than Delingha, and only two slow trains stop every day


The road to Wulan Railway Station; the station doesn't have a ticketing office


Waiting lounge of Golmud Railway Station


The road form Nagqu city to Nagqu Railway Station; Nagqu Railway Station is about 10 kilometers away from the city


Nagqu Railway Station


The Entrance, Nagqu Railway Station

Well, these platform dimensions at Lhasa are really insane! How many trains leave there per day? I heard that the station is really overdimensioned for the few passengers (and you can see it on the pics) and that it has a somehow cold atmosphere, too.

Well of course, it's in the middle of nowhere.

Which doesn't explain, why they saw the need to build such a monster of a station. Certainly, there's no need for such dimensions with 7 trains per day. I've seen smaller ones which easily handle more than 7 trains per hour.
This reminds me a bit of the station in Málaga (before the AVE was buildt): A station for a large city with the timetable of a village station...

You think it will remain so in the future? Haven't you heard about the new rail project linking Chengdu with Lhasa and also a rail project linking other cities within Tibet province?

You are just to ignorant to know the difference between translation and transliteration.

This is probably the most glorious railway in the world at the moment.

Could the upcoming Chengdu - Lhasa railway perhaps "steal" too much traffic from the Qinghai-Tibet railway? I hope not. Both those two railways will be absolutely breathtaking in their own way.

In hard seat cars (as in the video), oxygen outlets are located under the seats.

In hard sleeper cars (as in the picture), oxygen outlets are located on the wall, yes, behind the curtain.
