The road to Darkhan

A huge tonnage of timber passes through Mongolia on the way from Siberia to China. These long train loads of logs are helping to sustain China’s extraordinary economic growth. Here you see four engines at the head of the next delivery coming down the last incline into the Ulaanbaatar valley. The engines are arranged in two sets, coupled back to back.

By way of contrast, a lone cow and truck lost in an unchanging landscape.
