Dahuichang Limestone Railway

The last place you would expect to find a steam worked narrow gauge railway is Beijing, China's bustling modern capital. However, only a short distance from the glass and steel towers of the city, diminutive C2 class 0-8-0s shuttled back and forth, hauling trains of tubs between the quarry and the limestone plant at Dahuichang. The line closed in 2005.
