Steam in China, February 2015

by Ben Kletzer

Sandaoling, Pingzhuang



In addition, I spent February 4-6 in Pingzhuang. Two SYs are in use at the moment along with one DF4. However since the company owns 3 DF4s this could change at anytime. While I was there, the DF4 was rarely used, only to get two trains (over 3 days) from Pingzhuang Nan. More importantly, the majority of traffic to/from Pingzhuang Nan was hauled by SY1441. The crews/management seem to prefer the SY's over the DF4, as the SY's were in constant use while the DF4 stayed stabled at Zhuangmei.

{Previously only two DF4s have been reported at Pingzhuang. Can anyone offer more information about the 3rd? MR}
