Review of Iron Rooster New Years 2015 DVD

Heavy tonnage on steep grades make JS and SY 2-8-2s work hard and slip! Mine electrics and other rare sights are also seen here for the first time.

• Wild ride on the Semaphore cabin at Sandaoling Mine
• World's last standard gauge steam passenger at Baiyin on steep grade
• Final Days (?) on the "Prison Railway" at Rongshan - Narrow gauge in fantastic scenery
• Fuxin - Last "fleet" of SY locos working the mine complex and battling a 3% hill
• Pingzhuang Returns to Steam! Also - Update on Shibanxi Narrow Gauge New Year's Festivities, Ancient Caves, Colonial treasures of Tianjin
• Lots more, from high speed to 600mm mine electrics and standard diesels and electrics
