John Raby writes as follows:
In addition to the report from TW about Chongqing Port, I have received the following from local guide Zebedee. He can be contacted at: zebedee_china@hotmail.com . Given the prices quoted for permission to see these locos especially the last 2 locations, it will probably appeal more to organised groups rather than solo explorers.
