Farewell Sandaoling steam

Farewell Sandaoling steam
The opencast coal mine at Sandaoling is the last stronghold of industrial steam working in the world. New has been released that the steam locomotives will finish working here in October 2021 and the will mean that only the Chinese will be there to witness the last rites as foreign travel into the country will not be possible until at least November. I had two trips to this mine and it never failed to deliver great steam action. Here JS 8040 is beginning the long climb out with a train of spoil.
