Morning passenger

Morning passenger
I had tried to make this shot when I visited Baiyin in 2006, but a combination of bad light, bad timing, and operator error, made for a complete failure. This time I was in position early and did not have to run along the lineside as the train approached. The morning passenger service to Shenbutong Mine runs before sunrise in midwinter but still offers plenty of scenic opportunity. This line up into the mountains always makes me think of the wild west when I see my shots from here.

Die alte sowjetisch-Typ-Wagen mit funktionierenden Dampflok — das ist unglaublich!
