Colorful and with some very strange (to Westerners!) paint schemes – the trains of Beijing China are frequent and varied! So much that is takes two discs.

Colorful and with some very strange (to Westerners!) paint schemes – the trains of Beijing China are frequent and varied! We take you to Fengtai, on the outskirts of the city for diesel freights and passenger trains, and electric hauled passenger and freight trains. Fengtai station is at the end of a hump yard, so we also see DF7’s switching (a Fairbanks-Morse lookalike, sort of). Next it’s off to Dahuichang for diesel hauled freights and a few passenger trains, and the famed limestone railway, with it’s 2′ 6″ gauge 0-8-0’s. We visit an unidentified junction for electric freights, and after being sent away by the police and China Rail officials we visit a more friendly grade crossing for the double unit 8K electric locomotives and a variety of industrial type units. Then it’s off to the Beijing City Wall for an overlook at Central Station, and finally we visit a yard, where the staff invited us in and showed us where to set up! Impressive railroading! Two discs.

    what a variety of interesting trains. An awesome video that shows what so few of us will ever get to see. Beijing is an interesting city and has a lot to offer. It’s trains and transit is no exception. A fantastic video for all to enjoy

  2. Ben

    Most of the footage was taken at suburban rail junctions where their is a constant parade of colorful passenger and freight trains pulled with a multitude of diesel and electric power. Some added treats include 2’6″ 0-8-0 steam powered limestone trains and atop the wall overlooking Beiing Central Station.

    Come visit Beijing to see all of their most coloful trains in action. See very strange paint schemes to their Westerner paint schemes. Then go to the outskirts if town to Fengtai for diesel and passenger train action. See switching in the Hump yard, then see the 2′ 6″ narrow guage 0-8-0’s, then its up to the Beijing Wall for an overlook at the Central Station. Great 2 disc for the money.
