A Few More Metres

Approaching Nanzhan the gradient eases off and the final section into the yard is slightly downhill. With half of their train still on the gradient, JS 6204 and JS 8053 still had to work for a few more metres before they could shut off and coast the rest of the way. The photo was taken on 24 November 2009, about two months before diesels took over workings between Nanzhan and Liushuquan.
