DF11 Class diesel locomotives

The DF11 is a quasi-high speed diesel locomotive, which was the premier passenger locomotive in China when introduced, although short lived when the DF11G (double-unit) came along. All 459 units were produced at Qishuyan Locomotive Works between 1992 and 2005. They can be found on most major lines all over the country. The class all sport an attractive dark blue & cream livery. They have a top speed of 170kph. Members of the class are slowly being displaced by the high speed trains and electric locomotives, although they seem to have found a niche with courier trains, particularly SSPE.
