Trans-Manchurian map ( in yellow )




 A second primary route is the Trans-Manchurian or China Eastern Railway,

This line connects Chita to Beijing via the border town of Manzhouli and Harbin .


From Tarskaya the Trans-Manchurian heads southeast, via Harbin and Mudanjiang in China's Northeastern Provinces (from where a connection to Beijing is used by one of Moscow -  Beijing trains), joining with the main route in Ussuriysk just north of Vladivostok. This is the shortest and the oldest rail route to Vladivostok. Some trains split at Shenyang, China, with a portion of the service continuing to Pyongyang, North Korea.

 This line was built in the early 1900s by Imperial Russia .





 Chita ( Чита )

 Chita City is the Administrative Center of Zabaykalsky Krai.
