    Default Winter in China 10: Fuxin, 2nd day (50 p.)

    Hi,


    The video for Fuxin:

    We continue at the stabling point, now with sun shining on the locos




































































    Stairway to Heaven











    Of course it's important to clear the switches of ice


    Lady in blue








    One of the strangest sights of the trip: An electrician repairs some wiring for lightbulbs, in the background the steamers and cooling towers of the power plant!








    Our busdriver also watches


    The big level crossing a few hundred meters away








    Crossing guard with his pseudo-classical house, the crossing bars are pushed sideways on rails

















    These 15-minute-long shunting manoevers were responsible for a real traffic avalanche


    Now it was time to go to Shenyang airport. But first we ate in a part of the city we haven't seen before. Fuxin also looks like that, most chinese cities are transformed into something similar with express speed:








    On the first part of the busride we took a crosscountry road with a level crossing, where I could catch DF 4 7461 pulling a freight train.


    From the brand new airport of Shenyang we took the 19:00 China Eastern Airlines flight to Zhengzhou, about 1500 km southwest and already situated relatively in the center of China.

    LOL!!! I guess they're not worried about having a derailment near the nuke plant.

    Fantastic photos. There's no global warming in China.

    Hi,

    Thanks!

    That's of course a coal power station, the coal goes from the mine right to the plant - that's its sole purpose, no export, nothing else...
