Shibanxi Holiday 2010 - Tender First

Shibanxi Heaven - The best steam narrow gauge railway on DVD when it was totally real. We really ought to find time to put our video footage from 2008/09/10 onto another DVD at some stage.

I save showing my tender first shots for those which are a bit special, which usually means getting a little 'side on'.

And finally the crowning glory - the coal train rounds the horseshoe at Caiziba on one of the best mornings of the visit:
