JiTong Rly : Chabuga-Daban

Game Over

QJ 6981 took a run at the bank out of Yamenmiao with an eastbound freight shortly after sunset on 6 September 2005. This is how I'll remember the Daban - Chabuga section; big engines running hard and fast on heavy trains across a wild undulating landscape. While it's sad to think that we'll never see anything to compare with the JiTong QJs again, it's fitting that the main line steam era went out in such fine style. It was fantastic while it lasted.
