Morning Light

Sunrise is around 09:00 at Sandaoling in late November and used to be a great time to visit Xibolizhan, the hub of the spoil train operation. Shift change was also at 09:00 and over the next hour there would be a procession of empty spoil trains leaving for the pit in the best glint light.

JS 8027 worked away from Xibolizhan with an empty spoil train on 21 November 2011.
