The friendship between Bury and Datong can be dated back to the 1980s. Bury is located in Greater Manchester which is the communication hub of northwest England and historically a centre for locomotive building. The steam preservation railway operated in Bury by the East Lancashire Railway attracts tourists from all over the world. Datong Steam Locomotive Works was established in 1954. It used to be the largest locomotive production base in Asian and also one of the last locomotive works to stop production in the world. In 1991, Steam locomotive lovers from the East Lancashire Railway were invited to attend the Third China Datong International Locomotive Festival. Since then Datong and Bury began a friendship and in 2003 Datong and Bury were officially established as international twin cities. Frequent exchanges in the fields of local government, education, culture and sports have taken place between the two cities. In 2010, Datong and Bury were awarded the 'Exchange and Cooperation Award of International Twin City' by the Chinese People's Association for Friendship with Foreign Countries (CPAFFC).

英國貝利市

    大同和英國貝利的友好往來始于上世紀80年代。英國貝利市位于英國曼徹斯特大區,是英國西北部的交通樞紐,也是蒸汽機車的故鄉。位于貝利市的東蘭克夏郡鐵路協會開展的蒸汽機車旅游項目吸引了世界各國游客來貝利市觀光。始建于1954年的大同機車廠曾經是亞洲最大的蒸汽機車研制基地,也是世界上最后大批量制造蒸汽機車的廠家之一。1991年,來自貝利市東蘭克夏郡鐵路協會的蒸汽機車愛好者應邀參加了第三屆中國大同國際蒸汽機車節,由此開始了兩市的友好往來。2003年兩市正式建立友好城市關系。兩市在代表團互訪,教育、文化、體育等領域進行了交流和往來。2010年,大同市和貝利市雙雙被中國人民對外友好協會授予國際友好城市交流合作獎
