The engine is this one (text in German) by the way:

"Ajax", from 1841. Apparently the oldest existing one in Continental Europe ...

Jeme Tien Yow and his Imperial Peking-Kalgan Railway.

100 Yuan 1987 125 Years of Zhan Tianyou

(The depiction of the train is a bit shaky, but the engineer's mustache is iconic ;D)


Quote
Jeme Tien Yow (Chinese: 詹天佑; pinyin: Zhān Tiānyu; 26 April 1861 24 April 1919) was a distinguished Chinese railroad engineer. Educated in the United States of America, he was the chief engineer responsible for construction of the Imperial Peking-Kalgan Railway (Beijing to Zhangjiakou), the first railway constructed in China without foreign assistance. For his contributions to railroad engineering in China, Jeme is still known as the "Father of China's Railroad".

Fun picture. Yes, this train would be unable to negotiate a curve in the tracks.
