I tried to post a comment for that photo when i first saw it a week or two ago, but i couldnt log in for some reason and gave up. Thats an awesome photo, its almost surreal!

Speaking of Chinese trains, did you go on any of the trans-siberian railroad when you were over there?

Thanks for you comment on my photo. I didn't go on the Trans-Siberian - days and days of, well, Siberia, pulled by diesels or electrics. No thanks, I might get there one day, but not while there is steam to be photographed on this planet My most recent trip was to Ukraine and Romania to sample preserved steam running on the main lines - very nice but not the "real thing". I have posted a few shots from that trip including this one which was POTW a few weeks ago:
