Harbin Bureau - Bei'an Area

Bei'an is a farming town and sleepy railway junction in the north-west of Heilongjiang. Railway-wise, It's main claim to fame is as the interchange between CR and the Heihe Local Railway, operator of the long line north to Heihe on the Russian border. I first visited the area in 1999 when high deflector JS and QJ class steam locos were still common. By 2008 when I returned, the exotic class DF7D diesels that had ousted steam had themselves been displaced by standard DF4Bs. Both trips feature in this gallery.
