China Guilin 3rd November 1983
In 1983 Guilin was a centre for FD workings. This (plus a cruise up the river past the amazing karst limestone hills) was the reason for our visit.
This shot of FD 2-10-2 1198 was taken north of the large marshalling yard where engines came off the loco shed - hidden behind the trees - stopped & reversed to the left down onto their marshalled train. Then then would reappear double-heading their freight trains northwards 15 minutes later.
We spent the whole morning at this location photographing & videoing a cavalcade of freight trains.
