Remarks & Notes 
Loading station

Around Zingyaik are several quarries, the largest of them operated by prisoners. The ladies and men who load the stons onto the wagons are freelancer, but their work is as hard as the work in the quarries. Loading three wagons of our steam charter train required exhausting negotiations. The steam loco had no problem with the load. It brought the train to Bago, only sometimes supported by our diesel helper train. The diesel train was mainly as backup in case of a failure of our steam loco, for carrying water and oil supply and for the staff.
