Steam in China, September 2013

by Felix Sun

Hanwang, Mianzhu

I visited Hanwang and Mianzhu on 15th September, and I bring bad news to you: at Hanwang a new diesel has arrived and the two SYs were cold and stored. The workers told me that the steam locos stopped at the end of August. They wouldn't sell the two SYs soon because they still need a locomotive to work if the diesel fails.
Here is a photo I took in Hanwang that day.

In Mianzhu, I didn't find any locomotives including SY 1198.
