Chinese Steam At Work
2 Hours


Product Description

Steam doing what it was designed to do, in regular service. First we visit the Fengshuigue Coal Mine Railway, with a JS 2-8-2 on a passenger train at a very crisp dawn, then JS's shuffling cars. Next we visit the Benxi steel mill with SY 2-8-2's shuffling hot metal cars and slag cars, continuous action often with several trains moving at once. We even got a peek into a section of the mill where they were pouring moulten steel and slag. Next, it's off to the totally charming Weihe Forestry Railway with it's delightful, tiny 0-8-0's hard at work hauling logs. We caught a passenger train chartered by a Japanese group, and several trains with helpers, the workshops, and generally marvelled that something so small, with such tiny drivers could sound so good. Then we visit the huge Anshan steel mill for more SY's, and lastly the Puhe mine railway with SY's. 2 hours of hard working steam.
