This was from Xian to Datong in December 1988.

After several adventures on hard seat overnight trains, this was my first soft sleep experience. The train was pulled by a QJ 2-10-2 like the one in the picture (that one was at Guilin).

My main reason for going to Datong was the steam locomotive factory but on enquiring about it when I arrived in Datong, I was informed that the last steam engine had rolled out on 21st December. I was a week late.
