Baotou Steelworks was one of the first industrial locations I visited in China. In the 20 years since that 1988 visit, the locomotive fleet has changed significantly with SYs and diesels replacing the ET7s, JFs, JSs, XK13s and YJs. These pictures were taken in March 2008 as steam operations drew to a close. Other pictures from previous trips will be added as time permits.
