The Sławków rail terminal in southern Poland on Sunday welcomed the arrival of the first Chinese train under a November-opened wide-gauge Euro-China rail connection between Poland and the city of Xi'an in China. The train took 12 days to complete the route.

The train's 45 containers will be reloaded onto narrow-gauge rolling stock and trucks at Sławków's Euroterminal, the Euro-China route's operators said.

The 9,477-kilometre route was opened in a joint project by Poland's PKP national rail operator and the Xi'an Free Trade Port Construction and Operation enterprise. It passes through Kazakhstan, Russia and Ukraine.
