Beijing Railway Museum 2003
In March, 2003, there were about a dozen
steam locomotives and two diesels plus some passenger cars in
the exhibit hall of the new Beijing Railway Museum. The building
is big, roomy, well lighted and enough room to get back for photos.
They were also building another hall which, when completed, would
hold 60 locomotives in conjunction with the current hall. Here
are some photos of engines on display in the hall. Click on small
