Scorching the Ballast

On 10 September 2003 we spent the late afternoon near the summit between Yamenmiao and Diaojiaduan but nothing came. As the sun dropped towards the horizon, smoke was spotted in the far distance near Yamenmiao. It didn't seem possible that the train could reach us before the sun set. It did, but only just. With seconds to spare, QJ 6576 raced past with a short eastbound freight. What a way to end the day.
