Remarks & Notes 
A SY chugs past the setting sun after a hard days work hauling slag from the massive Baotou Steel Mill. The setting sun was a potent metaphor for the future of this locomotive and her sister SY 2-8-2's as within mere months, they would be replaced by diesels and reduced to the molten steel that they once hauled.
