The China Railways GJ (工建 Gongjian meaning 'construction worker') locomotives were a class of 122 0-6-0T steam locomotives built for industrial and shunting uses.


The locomotives were designed at the Dalian locomotive works and built at the Taiyun and Chengdu works between 1958 and 1961. Many were used at steel works, others were used as pilot locomotives at railway factories. Some units remained in use until the 2000s.[1]

In July 1959, seven class GJ locomotives were sent from the Chengdu Works to the Korean State Railway of North Korea.[3]
