Hopefully in this life I may get a chance to take high speed train between Europe and China via the silk route nations, absolutely fabulous.

I agree. Except I'd rather take one of those luxury trains like the Orient Express that currently runs from Thailand to Singapore.

The China section of the high speed railway from Lanzhou to Urumqi, Xinjiang opens next year; the Xian (starting point of Silk Road) to Lanzhou section in 2015.

Yes, Orient Express is quite a holiday, but going through silk route is like revisiting history from the time of han wudi, zhang qian, wei qing and huo qubing opened up silk route by cutting across xiongnu controlled territory. Many culture of these nations still intact till today.

I completely agree. I simply meant, instead of taking a high speed train, an Orient Express type train with private rooms and fine dining cars strolling lazily through the silk route making stops to allow for local excursions would be a phenomenal way to travel. I'm sure it'll be a great success.
