    Default Winter in China 3: Zhalai Nuer, day 2, lineside (50 p.)

    Hi,

    The video for this part:
    http://youtube.com/watch?v=yD-AKus-vIo


    Let's continue: it's early next morning, January 31, -25C





    The water of many residents is frozen, so they have to buy it through the window of an old lady's house.





    The first steam train of the morning








    Shops are opening





    Dead, frozen rat





    And a faster train


    Now we move on close to the pit to catch the empty passenger train returning from the morning shift on the mainline.


    Short stop for this spoil train




















    A maintenance train with steam crane on the horizon, as you can see tracks are built quickly and in a flexible way here





    A freight train approaches on the mainline





    And crosses the passenger (see video)








    Now let's take a closer look at the steam crane











    Departure


    out of the sun


    Another train in the distance to the right





    Towards the power plant


    Back with the spoil train, after unloading








    In town, at the melodic level crossing (see video)








    The SY with deflectors comes by


    We catch it again close to the washery


    Rural life in China


    Shunting


    The uphill departure








    Next: a visit to the workshop

    Wonderful photos. Though it's a shame parts of China are still a third world.

    Wow, simply wow. You know that's all I really do say when I look at these pictures. :P

    The shot with the steam crane is something amazing. It's one of those pictures that literately makes you stop and take it completely in to understand the full scope of the photograph. You just don't see the crane or the locomotive but the ground, the steam raising, the sun in the background. There were so many elements that it took me a good 5 minutes to just look it all over. It was as many of my co-workers said "perfect" including one who is a professional photographer.

    That is something I don't normally see when I look at pictures. Incredibly well done

    So different over there. A trip of a lifetime IMO. I can't wait to see the rest!

    You take some great photos. Enjoyed seeing steam in another part of
    the world. Time stands still in China.

    Amazing, evocative pictures. A world away from anything I have seen.
