Choo…choo… watch out for that freight train, your tomato sauce maybe on board. A new sea-rail combined route starting from Urumqi, capital city of China's Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region has been sending local commodities such as tomato sauce to Naples, Italy since it opened in 2018. Urumqi has seen more than 1,000 departures of freight trains leaving their respective railway ports for Europe last year. [Photo: China Plus]
