Beijing Bureau - Beijing to Chengde

The Beijing - Chengde line was popular with steam enthusiasts in the early 1990s as it provided main line steam action in attractive scenery little over an hour's drive from Beijing airport. The line was built in the late 1950s and runs through attractive mountainous country and features severe gradients. It is currently worked by class DF4 diesels, including some early examples. These pictures were taken in the 1990s and in 2006.
