This was the last real steam freight hauled train I was to photograph on the Ji Tong line in China.
We arrive at the overbridge outside Daban station just in time to catch this train at 0930 in the morning in good morning light.
This picture shows double headed QJ locomotives at the front of one of the last steam hauled freight trains on the JiTong main line in China, at Daban on 16 November 2005. Officially, the last steam train over the spectacular JingPeng pass ran in December 2005. All regular workings are now diesel hauled.
