Once merely a small village located in the north China, Shijiazhuang’s fate vastly changed after becoming the interception point of two of the earliest railway in China, the Jing-Han line and Zheng-Tai line. Coal was carried on the trains, and factories were built along the trail. This place was also always a military hot-spot from ancient time to the WWII. This graph displayed the different railways built around Shijiazhuang from the late 19th century to 1940s. Strategic points such as mines and battlefields are also indicated.
