FolkestoneJack's Tracks

Another day, another hilltop…

Posted in China, Diaobingshan by folkestonejack on December 16, 2009

In Diaobingshan both steam locomotives and diesels were in use for passenger services but for our benefit the passenger services on the scenic Faku line were switched from diesel to steam for the day – presenting an unforgettable sight from our hilltop position in the afternoon.

Our viewpoint gave us a 180 degree view over the line – overlooking the frozen waters of Paoziyan Reservoir and a monument to a coal productivity target reached in 1997. It was definetly one of the highlights of the entire trip.
