Beipiao Mining Railway

This small coal mining system centred on the town of Beipiao had just received its first diesel a short time before we got there in late 2010. There was still some steam activity but the diesel had already taken over the bulk of the work and a couple of the older SYs were already being scrapped behind the depot. Most of the rest sat in the shed, stone cold and with nothing to do.
