Fact Check: Is this video of a freight train from China to Germany? Here’s the truth


A video is going viral on social media claiming that it is of China-Germany freight train that covers a distance of 10,214 km over 14 days via Kazakhstan, Russia, Belarus, and Poland.

शानदार विडियो
इस वीडियो मे एक मालगाड़ी दिखाई गई है |
यह ट्रेन चीन से चलती है , और कजाकिस्तान, रूस, बेलारूस , पोलैंड होते हुये 10214 किलोमीटर का सफर तय करके जर्मनी पहुँचती है , और फिर जर्मनी से वापस चीन जाती है ।
इस ट्रेन को 13 जून 2018 को शुरु किया गया था , और इस ट्रेन मे 200 डिब्बे हैं, जिन्हे बढाकर 300 किया जा रहा है l
10214 किलोमिटर की दूरी यह ट्रेन 14 दिनों मे पूरी करती है , जबकि समुद्री जहाज से लगभग 60 दिन लगते हैं l
इस गजब के वीडियो मे देखिये, कि किस तरह से यह ट्रेन एक पहाड के चारों ओर चलती है और एक सांप का आकार ग्रहण कर लेती है… पहाड़ी ट्रेक होने के कारण इस ट्रेन मे 4 इंजन लगाने पड़ते हैं l
है ना अदभुत ट्रेन” the caption read.


When NewsMobile fact-checked the viral video, we found the claim attached to the video to be fake.

On putting the keyframes of the video through Reverse Image Search, we found the original video on YouTube dated December 26, 2018, titled “Tehachapi Loop – Long take”.

The Tehachapi Loop is a 1.17 km long spiral railroad that passes through Tehachapi Pass of the Tehachapi Mountains, a mountain range in the Transverse Ranges system of California in the Western United States.

Here is the Google Earth image of Tehachapi Loop.

In the video, we also notice that ‘BNSF‘ was written on the engines of the train. BNSF Railway Company is the largest freight railroad network in North America. 

Moreover, the Chongqing-Xinjiang-Europe Railway is a  freight rail route linking the southwestern Chinese city of Chongqing ( in Asia) with Duisburg, Germany (in Europe) that covers 11,179 km route in 13-16 days.

Since the video is of a BNSF freight train running in the Tehachapi Loop in North America, we can safely say the claim attached to the video is false as the train to China(Aisa) to Germany(Europe) at no point passes the loop.
