The Last Dragons - Steam in China
Author: ETFuller

Travis Dewitz recently traveled to the Chinese province of Xinjiang to photograph the last remaining steam locomotives. It was a long distance journey to a time and a place where fire and steam still rule.

Thank you! A really great series. Especially like the 'volcano' coming out of the stack in the dark.

Excellent. Other than a few coal mines in Bosnia that still  use steam for shunting, this is the last area in the world using industrial steam. Poland has the last non-tourist steam passenger operation. Now on life support for one more year.

There is video on youtube of those engines coming upgrade at night and making that shower of sparks.  Amazing video.
