According to the last picture, it is used by the units of Ma Zhanshan (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ma_Zhanshan).

If so, it has to be in Suiyuan Province (now Inner Mongolia). It may have been leftover from the Northeastern Army Era.

Yes, the original caption says so. I made this note below the photo so I would not forget the original caption.
And you can see how many people were needed to serve this monster!

I have never seen this type before. It looks like an improvised one.
It is said that a few Chinese armored train also took part in the battle of Nanking in December 1937.

The last photo has the name "Hu Kwwang" on the train. Hu-Kwang refers to "Hunan-Kwangtung", together with the uniforms of the soldiers, suggest this is an armored train of the northern expedition army.
