The report from my latest trip to China in late 2019, only 3 months late this time. Once again the destination was the opencast coal mine at Sandaoling, just about the only place where real working steam locomotives can be seen these days.

China : Another New Trip Report

Another very late report from a trip to China, this time in November and December 2018, so less than a year late! This time the visit was just to the steam worked mining railway at Sandaoling.

China : New Trip Report

17-D-4875_openWith_x300
Very late but hopefully still of interest to some. This report dates from a trip to China in late 2017, visiting the mining systems at Wujiu and Sandaoling, both of which feature working steam, and including some observations of the current main line scene, principally around Beijing.

A new batch of 80 pictures, mainly from the Reading - Basingstoke - Clapham Junction triangle, many of them units as would be expected but quite a few loco hauled workings as well. There are also a few odds and ends from as far apart as the Peak District and China for good measure.

Forty new pictures have been added to the UK photo galleries, mostly covering visits to the Peak District, Midland Main Line and North Lincolnshire over the last couple of years. These include plenty of freights hauled by Class 66s in a variety of liveries but also quite a few Class 60s and a handful of older classes. For the DMU fans (are there any?) there are a few shots of Classes 150, 158, 185 and 222 as well.

Germany : New Trip Report

17-D-2824
A two week trip to southern Germany in late April and early May 2017. There was a new class to photograph on a line I knew well, a busy scenic line that had been explored by train and on Google Earth but not yet photographed and a last chance to visit a busy diesel worked route before the classic locos are replaced by bland new traction. As the title suggests it wasn’t as easy a trip as it should have been.
