China standard gauge industrial steam tour – The Last Great Steam Show on Earth October 21 – November 11 2012

Visit all of the remaining best, accessible standard-gauge steam sites. See around 40 SY and JS locos in action.

The tour is organised and guided by experienced local guides and an old-China hand (first visit around 1980!). A reasonably priced trip that includes transport, permissions, full-board (3 meals a day including beer) and single rooms.

The trip plans to visit Sandaoling & Baiyin (Part 1) and Pingzhuang, Yuanbaoshan, Hongmiao, Fuxin, Fushun & Tiefa (Part 2). Join either part or both in Beijing and be escorted back to Beijing at the end. Assistance with your China visa application can be provided.

The tour is planned for decent steam effects and the beginning of the winter steam heat season but to avoid the serious cold of mid-winter.

The tour uses long-distance trains and our own bus. No internal flights are used.

This tour will definitely run but has space for a few more participants.
