What are the distance markers? It looks like it takes a helluva steep climb after Golmud!

As two struggling soldiers during the British invasion of 1904 are reported to have said : - I thought they talked about the Tibetan table land ? - That they did , this is one of the f***** table legs. But yes , it´s steep. 2000 meters in less than 200 km´s. Xining is the halfway point of the 4064 km´ track. ( I had two sets of data , one from just beyond Golmud, working out the other set I gave the distances negative numbers , too much work recalculating the whole set. So the large dividers are thousand klicks.)
