First 'Silk Road' train arrives in UK

Publicerat av Cecilia Helland tisdag, 24 januari 2017.

The first freight train from China to Britain has arrived in London, completing a journey across Asia and Europe.

The service is part of a push by China to revive the Silk Road trading routes to western Europe.

The red locomotive hauling the train was showered with white confetti as it rolled into the Barking terminal in east London on Wednesday.

The train began its intercontinental journey in the eastern Chinese city of Yiwu on January 1. It then passed through Kazakhstan, Russia, Belarus, Poland, Germany, Belgium and France before entering Britain through the English Channel.
