This is the Trans-Manchurian Route chapter from Lonely Planet’s Trans-Siberian Rail-way guidebook.

For connoisseurs of obscure rail routes, the Trans-Manchurian Railway ranks high on wish lists. It’s not on the main line to Vladivostok, nor does it take the ‘tourist route’ via Mongolia; rather, it chugs through China’s rust belt, where foreign faces are few.
