A lucky moment

A lucky moment
This one was purely chance and with no time to plan and set up the shot. Having just left the overnight sleeper service from Urumchi at Hami and being driven in a minibus towards the opencast coal mine at Sandaoling. The first sighting from the minibus was JS 8366 heading back to the mine from the exchange sidings and we slowly overtook it on the parallel road. Looking back it was clear that a shot was demanded and just before the road and rail parted ways there was just time to stop and dash out to shoot a couple of frames before it was gone. Thirty seconds later and we would have missed it.

Great timely capture. By the time I got there diesels were on the trains to the exchange sidings.
