THE WORLDS LAST SHEDULED STEAM PASSENGER IS SEEN BEING THRASHED UP THE HILLS AT BAIYIN. CHINA. 2011


SY Locomotives still take the daily passenger trains up the mountain pass at Baiyin in China. The Trains take the workers to the zinc and copper smelters that are situated up in the hills . The steam locos can provide steam heating for the passenger coaches , all that luxury of steam hauled travel and would you believe its all FREE. If you also ask nicely they will take you up the pass on the footplate . this is filmed at the crossing at Liugolni in March 2011

If Britain declares war on Iceland, should China establish a “no fly zone” to protect the Icelandic people?

Britain’s acrimonious dispute with Iceland over billions of missing dollars is worsening. Icelandic voters have rejected a plan to repay Britain and British leaders are vowing retaliation. The British Navy is steaming toward Iceland. Should China protect tiny Iceland (population 250,000) against giant Britain (population 60,000,000)? Is it logistically possible for China and its “coalition of the willing” to establish a “no fly zone” to save Iceland?
