Cataloging on this item notes "many by Colin MacKenzie" with regards to this image. As MacKenzie was only active as a photographer from about 1903-1911, this is likely later than "ca. 1900" if this is indeed one of his images.

Ruixian Fan stands by the carriage door. It is dark outside. She returns to her onboard train office and reviews her ticket binder. She looks out of the window. She walks through carriage 8 and 9 on the K165 train line and pulls back the curtains. The sun is starting to rise. She sits down in the hard sleeper area and watches the scenery go by.
