Archive for November, 2010

Kandar is located about 4 hours north of Kolkata (North East India) on the rail route to the North Eastern territories. Absolutely no reason to go there. Except if you are like me on the much delayed night train from the Darjeeling area (date: Jan. 2010). Suddenly the train stops. The conductor almost falls out […]

Sandaoling, who to call

New responsible for tourists is Mr Zhang Fu Sheng, former locomotive driver. He will normally require a daily tourist visit fee, which is fixed, and show you around by his car, which is 200 Yuan per day, no matter how much you use the car. He picks you up from anywhere around the mine right […]

Sandaoling

They have 23 steam locomotives, 20 JS and 3 SY. SY 1504 reported by me before is wrong: Must be 1304. They use 11 JS on stone trains through Xibolizhan and 3 on coal trains. They use all SY on the worker train and other work trains. They use one JS on the spreader. They […]

The red engines […]

Shibanxi Schmalspurbahn

Die Gerüchte über den Bau einer Straße nach Bagou sind keine Gerüchte! Die Straße ist bereits im Bau und soll im März 2011 fertig sein. Uns wurde gesagt, dass die neue Straße keinen Einfluss auf die Eisenbahn haben soll, selbst die Anzahl der Personenzüge soll gleich bleiben. Aber gerade die Personenzüge sind jetzt schon viel […]

Shibanxi Narrow Gauge Line

The rumours about building a road up to Bagou are no rumours any more. They started construction already and want to finish it in March 2011. It was said the new road will not harm the railway operation, even the passenger trains should continue to run. However, the number of passengers in the trains declined […]

Zwei GJ sollen demnächst verschrottet werden.

Steam in Vietnam

The steelworks Thai Nguyen will continue to use one 0-6-0 GJ steam loco at least until mid 2011. They are going to extend the steelworks (construction started already). In 2011 they plan to purchase three more diesel locos and get new engines for the existing diesels. After the diesels arrived the steam locos might be […]
