Contest #534: the Khorgas Dryport, near the town of Khorgas in western China

The Khorgas Dryport in western China is an attempt to replicate the Silk Road as a way to get goods and materials from China to Europe.

The port lies at a midway point between Europe and China, the world’s largest economies alongside the United States. Here, freight trains will converge, cargo will be unloaded and recombined according to the destination, with new trains quickly departing (these giant cranes are capable of moving cargo between trains in just 47 minutes).
