Winter Journey

By Falconer  
With the temperature at -20 and it starting to snow as the sun starts to go down - another train makes its way up the Jingpeng Pass in Inner Mongolia. This great spectacle of the age of steam has now gone as the modern deisels have arrived there this year.

Such a shame about the deisels arriving...I bet the train drivers find them very dull in comparison!
Spectacular capture of the steam, you can almost hear the puff-puffing across the valley Smile

Brilliant shot Robert. So much smoke, it must have been hard going up that hill. Me thinks you had a very good vantage point. Well done.
