Steam was still active in the Yebaishou shed in March 1998, but the DF4's were already here. A few months later, all the traffic around Yebaishou was in the hands of the Diesels.
Three QJ's are being prepared for their next duty in the Yebaishou shed.
A QJ has almost reached the summit west of Yebaishou on the Chengde line with its freight train. Another QJ is banking the train.
A southbound train nears the summit of Jingpeng Pass.
The harshness of the Manchurian winter in northern China can be felt in this picture. Fog, snow, ice, wind and a temperature of about 4 deg Fahrenheit, but the railway continued to work.
Why are you looking at me. I have more fun than the train?
Although at 23 o'clock, the Mudanjiang depot was still busy, three DF8 were preparing their next work.
DF8 series is the first to reach the 5000-horsepower Chinese diesel locomotive.
Thinking back in the late summer in 2009, on a hot morning at International Mail Center, I took my first Long Hood Forward MTR 56 (also Ex-KCR 56) shot since my first railfanning in 2004.
Before an upcoming snow, HXD1-0092 was pulling 102 empty wagons back to Datong.
