SL7 (SMR PASHI-7) steam locomotive

Sujiatun Depot May 1981
Pashina (or PASHI-7) is the meaning of 7th locomotive of 4-6-2 class in SMR. He was used for the limited express passenger train named "Asia" in SMR. He built of 12 cars by Kawasaki and SMR Shahekou works in 1934. He has streamline body and 2 meters of driving wheels. It is the strongest steam locomotive that Japan built before the WWII. After the China revolution, China was covered with the curtain of bamboo. Therefore the news of this locomotive was indistinct. A man saw that this locomotive is still working in the 1970's. In the 1980's this locomotive was reported in Japanese newspaper. It became a big topic. Now, he is preserved in the steam locomotives museum of Sujiatun. But, the condition is very badly. I think that is very sad case, but he will be going to collapses really.
