Remarks & Notes 
The RM class was China's last steam passenger design. It was a late 1950s development of the successful pre-war SL6 pacific, which was adopted as the standard passenger class post liberation. The new locos employed a Russian style boiler, similar to that used by the JS class, mounted on a rolling chassis based closely on the SL6 design. Many parts were designed to be interchangeable with the JS class. The first RM entered service in 1958 and a total of 258 were built before the production was stopped in 1966. The last RMs were withdrawn from the Changchun shed shortly after this picture was taken in early 1990.
