Here's some older stuff. Taken in 1994 somewhere between Shanghai and Guillin but nearer the latter - OK I know that doesn't pin it down! Maybe someone can clarify.

Cheers

And finally … my 2005 trip photos

And looking through them, actually spotted the water tower at Da'ban … but mainly shrouded in steam.

Cheers

Teamyakima's shot of the YJ at Tiefa is interesting, the angular covers on the steam and sand domes is usually indicative of a loco built during the war, which suggests that it could be an original South Manchuria engine, PL class.

Further to the YJ at Tiefa, there is no obvious builder's plate on the engine, which suggests that it was Japanese built, so SMR, the Chinese removed all Japanese builder's plates from locomotives, vehicles, etc.

More on the Tiefu shot, further searching through my scattered references shows that the SMR did not build or own any of this type of loco, so it must be a YJ, but the angular dome covers are odd for post-war.

Bill,

According to Robin Gibbons's reference book it is a YJ built in Jinan in 1960.

Paul,
Thanks for that info, I 've now looked up the YJ's in Gibbons book, there are quite a few of them with these simplifed steam and sand dome covers.
Don't know if any other Chinese steam loco builders used this pattern of dome.
