Atmospheric Railway

Pingdingshan was shrouded in fog on the morning of 8 January 2005, the last day of our visit. In spite of the unpromising conditions, we managed to get this atmospheric shot of JS 8057 leaving Tianzhuang with a long train of empties for Shenxi yard. This train appeared to run between 08:00 and 08:30 every morning, conveying upto 60 wagons to Shenxi where the train would be broken into shorter rakes and tripped to local mines.
