Xingyang Clay Railway, Henan province

Xingyang is located approcimately 30 kilometers west of Henan province's capital city, Zhengzhou. The line ran for four kilometers from a clay quarry to three brickwork factories using a pair of C2 class 0-8-0 locomotives. This was a narrow gauge dream line, being so close to a major center and, when not shut for weather or lack of demand from the factories, a very busy little railway. The line closed not long after my visit having succumbed to road transport.
