At Erlian we had passport & immigration checks while the train bogies (wheels) were changed. The illuminated arrivals building had a slightly dystopian soundtrack...
The station is huge, with security checks and waiting rooms a bit like an airport.
It’s the final train of my journey from Edinburgh to Hong Kong! 🚂
My 1st class seat includes a snack box, soft drinks, plus lots and lots of legroom 🙂
From Edinburgh to Hong Kong by train, in numbers:
🚂 9 trains
🌍 10 countries
🗓 13 days (including sightseeing)
🧭 8,246+ miles by train
Just 2 minutes late arriving into Hong Kong on Christmas Eve🎄😀
