Double DF8s at Qifeng

By Chinese standards, DF8 is a small class with only 140 or so locos, 100 of which are based at Mudanjiang in north-east China. They are heavy freight locos and spend much of their time hauling coal from the Jixi and Qitaihe coalfields towards Harbin. DF8 0082 and DF8 0094 were filmed passing Qifeng on the Mudanjiang - Harbin line with a loaded coal train.
