Remarks & Notes 
Pingzhuang Mining Railway SY1441 struggles to pull 50 empty coal cars out of the mainline interchange at Pingzhuang Nan Zhan (Pingzhuang South Station). As it crosses the river, this train will slowly gather speed for the grades ahead. The river shows the signs of a century of coal mining in this region that has poisoned the groundwater and turned a healthy river filled with fish into a stream of black sludge. Such polluted rivers are common in the mining areas of China, as the country is just now recognizing the environmental cost of rapid industrial growth.
