Steam Bows Out

QJ 6878 and QJ 7164 accelerated away from Daban with a long train of empty coal wagons on 12 December 2004. On the left, most of the locos on the shed faced east, evidence that the focus of steam operation had shifted from the Haoluku line to the route east to Chabuga.

This was the last steam hauled train that I photographed on the Daban - Haoluku section. Steam workings to Haoluku finally ceased during March 2005.
