Qiqihar loco depot, northern China, had many immaculate steam locos. What was more important was these included a number of RM class pacifics that were still working many passenger trains in the area including expresses. Also on shed was a Giesel fitted JF class 2-8-2 although this was in normal condition and had not see a cleaner for a few months! Enjoy the images which portray Chinese steam locos at their very best.
