In case anyone might have the opportunity to monitor the radios, here's a link to an article about a train that will travel a 7500 mile route.

"A train will travel a mammoth 7,500 journey from China to London as the Silk Road trading route is revived for a new era. The East Wind locomotive will pass through Russia, Kazakhstan, Belarus, Poland, Belgium and France, before it pulls into Hackney Rail Freight terminal in London's East End on Wednesday. Bringing an array of goods in 34 carriages from the manufacturing town of Yiwu in East China, the train would have finished an incredible 16-day journey...

...Due to the different rail gauges in each country, the same train can't complete the journey..." -- DailyMail.co.uk

If anyone actually does monitor this train, please post results here.

Thanks,
