While walking up the pedestrian stairwell of Wuhan's 2nd Yangtze Bridge to take a shot of the river I spotted this accumulation of train carriages.


It appears to be a holding area for old railway stock - China's new high speed rail system means many old lines and trains are becoming obsolete.





One carriage's back door was left open, allowing inspection of this style of long distance train.

Below are second class seats which is also where standing room only travellers would be packed in - you can imagine it bustling, reeking of smoke, body odour and Chinese toilet.



Hard sleeper carriage. These are cubicles with two sets of bunk beds three high - access to the top one would require some physical effort.



Dining coach and kitchen.



Ticket prices are highest for soft sleeper carriages which have two bunks of two more comfortable beds and a door for some privacy.



At this point a man outside started banging on the train and shouting in Chinese, so it was time to beat a retreat through and get out on the opposite side, then under some other trains and extract.
