Connecting you to other train lines on the Silk Road. This way it is possible to get the train all the way to southern India and a ferry over to Sri Lanka. Check out the Boat Mail Express, once the Indo-Ceylon Express, for a combined train and steamer ferry service between India and Sri Lanka (once Ceylon).
