about half way down article Russian envoys escaped on a unpowered RR hand cart.   Note the dual guage track.  Tak about desperation,

Rails look rusty, the line can't be busy.

Interesting way to get standard and Russian gauge to overlap.

Thought N. Korea only shared borders with China and S.Korea.  Learn something every day.

I wouldn't think that the Norks would mess with the Russians.

It's too bad they didn't have one of those carts with the see-saw handle like Buster Keaton used.

I really don't like Putin but the Pillsbury Doughboy doesn't know that Putin doesn't play by western rules of conduct.

But he does know that Putin would not do the West any favors, like eliminating him.

But the Chinese might, if he gets to be too much of a PITA.  And they'll make it look like someone's else's fault.

He is the Chinese pet he can create a incident anytime they want him to.
