Remarks & Notes 
In the waning light of a gloriously cold and clear February day, JS #8173 storms through the Big Curve on the way out of the opencast pit coal mine at Sandaoling. This train is one of many 1300 ton trains that JS8173 hauled out of the pit this day. The Sandaoling Coal Mine Railway is one of the last great steam shows on Earth, with trains every 15 minutes up the 2+% grade out of the Opencast Pit all behind mainline JS 2-8-2 Mikados.
