China: Land of 10.000 Locomotives
A 1988 Portrait of the Chinese Railways Join us on a fascinating journey through China in the Eighties. A last paradise for today’s fans of a long gone era: The world of Steam Locomotives. Just Imagine, in 1988 there were still over 10,000 steam locomotives in active service spread over 33,000 miles of track! Filmed in 1988, this rare PANTOFFEL-KINO® DVD takes us to every corner of this vast and uniquely different land, China. From the bone chilling cold climate in the North, we go to roundhouses and shops, experiencing steam, steam and more steam all the way to Datong and Tangshan (homes of the last two existing steam locomotive factories in the world). Our journey ends with an impressive 3,000 mile “railcruise” through the stunning beauty of Middle and Southern China.
