The skies have darkened and the rain is just beginning to fall.

The Guangzhou loco shed lead can be seen to the left of the locomotive.

I just could not give in to the rain and the weather, so I aimed the E-20N, set the shutter speed at 1/320, as the train was not poking along, and guessed a good overexposure setting (rock bottom at f2.2), then took the shot.


This was my first sighting of an SS1 electric locomotive. Quiet machine.

This is a classic Chinese electric locomotive and many of these units remain in active service.
