Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I'd hope our Russophile readers could dig up some recent news about Russian attempts for facilitating Chinese-EU traffic.

I also add that there is one further factor that could benefit the Transsib route more: electrification. All of the Transsib is electrified, only the connecting lines across Mongolia or Northern China aren't - while large sections of the other routes would still have to be electrified.
