Return to Diaobingshan

Posted in China, Diaobingshan by folkestonejack on January 13, 2011

After our early morning start it was a welcome move that took us into ‘Californian Beef Noodle King’ (a popular fast food chain in mainland China) for some hot and filling noodle soup. Later, after visits to the station and to the workshop, this was supplemented by meat filled pancakes in another local eaterie.

Initially it seemed that not much had changed in Diaobingshan but it soon became apparent that there is alot of construction taking place here – there were rows and rows of apartment blocks under construction on the far side of the station.

After visiting a few locations, the day ended with some interesting shots on the run in to Daming with the SY hauled passenger service seen against the backdrop of a spoil heap and then again at the end of service at Daming itself. All of this good work was rewarded with a wonderfully spicy meal in the evening…
