A Rare Treat

The washery pilot, SY 1601, rarely left its post during our visit, leaving the diesel yard pilot to do virtually all the heavy shunting. The one occasion we did see the SY drag a rake of loaded wagons up the steep bank to Dongfanghong yard couldn't have been better timed as it coincided with sunrise on 3 March 2009.
