Yaojie Industrial Railways

The mining town of Yaojie is blessed with two industrial railways, one heading south through a spectacular gorge to connect with CNR in Haishiwan and the other serving an aluminium smelter and a ferro-alloy works up the Datong River valley north of town. At the time of our November 2005 visit both lines were steam worked but the first diesel arrived on the southern line a few weeks later.
