In this our first volume, we take a diverse look at Chinese steam in action in February 1991 at a time when this form of motive power was still dominant over large parts of the country.

We journey along the rarely visited 600mm gauge line based on Jijie in southern China with a Baldwin 0-10-0 in action.

Then there are stunning scenes in the Gobi Desert near Zhongwei where double-headed and triple-headed QJs of the Sante Fe 2-10-2 wheel arrangement can be seen hauling enormous freight trains.

At Changchun motive power depot there is an lot of continuous activity in and around the depot.

Finally we see JS Class 2-8-2s at work in the Hunjiang area of south-east Manchuria in temperatures of around –15C!

In 1995 a new railway was opened in the Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region of Northern China. Remarkably, the line was designed to use steam operation and as the 21st Century dawned this type of motive power was still in daily use along the full length of this 943 km. route.

This programme covers operations over the spectacular Jingpeng Pass which the line ulilises to cross a mountain range approximately halfway along the route. Spectacular civil engineering features abound along this 48 km section, including .fme horseshoe curves, seven tunnels and numerous viaducts. QJ class 2-10-2s, mostly double headed, toil though a mountainous landscape on this, probably the last, remaining long-distance steam operation in the World. The sequences were taken in early 2000 when freezing temperatures ensured spectacular smoke effects!
