The “Belt and Road” Initiative received political and financial support from China before 2010 and won the support of Russia, Kazakhstan and Belarus after 2010. Judging from the astonishing growth of trans-Eurasian railway transportation, the “Belt and Road” Initiative has undoubtedly rendered remarkable results. This paper examines the potential national interests involved in and the obstacles faced by trans-Eurasian railway transportation, and provides recommendations to promote the further growth of trans-Eurasian railway transportation. The paper believes that the “Belt and Road” Initiative (including trans-Eurasian railway transportation) has been successful in northern Eurasian as it serves the economic and political interests of Russia, Kazakhstan and Belarus. In order to fully unleash the economic potential of the Eurasian continent, further efforts are needed to advance the “Belt and Road” Initiative in northern Eurasian.
