Shenyang Bureau - Tonghua Area
Tonghua lies in the far south-east of Jilin Province, close to the North Korean border and well away from the main traffic centres of the North-East. Despite this it's one of the most rewarding places to photograph trains with glorious scenery, especially in the autumn, reasonable traffic levels and varied and colourful motive power. Most of these pictures were taken on an October 2008 trip.

Shenyang Bureau - Changchun Area
Changchun lies on the Harbin - Shenyang main line and was a busy division point in steam days as well as being the capital of Jilin Province. It's also the junction of secondary main lines to Da'an and Jilin. These photos include RM and SL6 Pacifics as well as some of the earliest QJs. Diesels are represented by several classes including DFH3 and DF4C.

Harbin Bureau - Mudanjiang Area
Mudanjiang is Heilongjiang's third city and lies in the far south east of the province, close to the Russian border. The city lies on the route of the original Trans Siberian Railway and the lines in the surrounding area are both scenic and fairly busy. There is a good variety of traction in use including DF8 class diesels. This gallery contains pictures taken around Mudanjiang itself and near Jixi, a large mining centre 120km to the north.
