China steam locomotive finale

filmed at Jixi, China, the last vestiges of the steam locomotive era in China, you can see the OHLE infrastructure (Over Head Line Equipment) going up to hold the wires to power the new electric traction. In the meantime the JS 2-8-2's go about their work before going to the big scrapyard in the sky...

This video shows the locomotives at work at Dongchang Mine, Beichang Washery and the Xinghua Spoli Tip at Jixi. The action takes place at the washery and the coal-tip, with footage of the local coal pickers too.

note; this is a rail intense film of some 14+ minutes - the usual warnings and caveats apply.....
