Chinese Communist locomotives

In 1946, in Manzhouli railway station in Inner Mongolia, on the route to Harbin, were abandoned a number of old locomotives. Workers, to overcome difficulties, carefully repaired some of them.

To commemorate the event, on October 30, 1946, the locomotives were named after Mao Zedong. In 1977 Mao Zedong models were replaced by a more modern diesel locomotive produced by Dongfeng (still named after Mao Zedong). During the course of the years were produced thousands of Mao Zedong trains.
