This memorandum is in answer to the above referenced requirement which requested a detailed study of the rail line between Cheng-chou and Lan-chou, Communist China. This study was to include: the number of freight trains; the direction, location and speed oi' each train; the number and type of cars in each train; and the location and size of all sidings and yards on the line. 2. Continuous photographic coverage of this whole rail line was not available, therefore only that portion which had continuous coverage was 25X1C studied. was used to obtain the traffic and yard information from Hsi-an to Ting-hsi. The railroad alignment and 25X1 C yard information from Ting-hsi to Lan-chou were obtained from 25X1C dated Enclosed with this memorandum are 12 maps bound in booklet form and two tables. Two of the maps (CIA/PID/IB-P-230/64 and P-231/64) are of a scale of 1:1,000,000. These maps show the general configuration of this railroad and act as an index to the ten large scale maps (CIA/PID/IB-P-188/64 thru P-197/64), which show the railroad in more detail. Table No. 1 gives a description of the yards and sidings and Table No. 2 gives the details on the trains found on this rail line during this study. The same alphabetic-numeric designation used for each train and rail road yard in the tables, has also been used as an annotation on the map for the same item. By this means, the descriptive information in the tables is coordinated to given location on the maps. S- 1 1510 SUBJECT: Cheng-chou to Lan-chou Railroad Study . 3. The analyst on this project was who may be 25X1A contacted on extension 2546 should you have any questions concerning this memorandum. This is considered a complete answer to the requirement.
