Coal a/o iore transport.

Postby natuwes on 16 May 2015, 15:27

Hello,

Does anyone know if the coal and/or iore trains between Beijing, Datong and Taiyuan run further to and beyond Pingyao in the same area? I know by experience myself that they mostly run with a 8K-type locomotive on the first and with DF8B, SS4 and HXD2.x type locomotives on the latter, at least to north of Taiyuan. Thank you.

Last time I was in Pingyao was in 2008, and then the line was run with almost only DF4B's... :)

I guess things have changed a lot in the mean time... :)

(PS: The 8K's are almost all scrapped now, only a few remain in service... :? )

Already? In 2013 there were dozens of them in service between the Beijing and Datong area.
