In the photographer's words: "The Jiayang steam train has been running for almost half a century in Sichuan, China. The Jiayang Coal Mine built the Ba-Shi Railway and bought trains to solve the problem of coal transportation in 1985. It opened in 1959. The trains were known as “inch gauge” because their gauge is only half that of the common standard. I took a photo there in 2010 and I was so proud of my hometown – Sichuan."
