The QJ was a type of heavy freight steam locomotive used by China Railways, the majority were made by Datong locomotive factory. The prototypes and early production of the class were designated HP, being redesignated as FD class during the cultural revolution before becoming the QJ class in 1971. The class became the primary mainline freight locomotive on the chinese rail network by the 1980s, and were then displaced by diesel locomotives during the 1990s.
