Bachmann China has been making a range of Chinese models for quite a few years now - the SY tourist loco is an Americanised version of a model originally produced for the Chinese domestic market - that applies to both the model and the prototypel!

Only a few models from the Chinese range have ever been released in the USA. However the full range is imported into the UK so the Bachmann British site is a good place to check as it is in English.http://www.bachmann.co.uk

It should be noted that not all freight cars released by Bachmann China are authentic Chinese prototypes although some certainly are - there is or was
a budget range that consisted of  repainted USA models.

Another good site for those interested in modelling Chinese is Peter Haworth's http://home.iprimus.com.au/unionrr/3b.html#bachmann This has descriptions of the Bachmann, and other, Chinese models.

Yeah, and you can notice the truck style is a bit different.

Didn't the Chinese railways buy a mess of American hoppers a couple of decades ago? I believe the old P&LE sold hoppers to China. Some of these may still be in service. I remember reading that they were overhauled to Chinese specs.

For anyone who's interested, it's a preproduction model of B-mann China's next locomotive.
