The lowest fare for a train from Jiangxi to Hubei is 1 yuan, and the "block train" has not risen in price for 26 years.
There are always people who disdainfully ask when looking for change in supermarket, "What can you do with one dollar?" But in fact, there are many things that can be done with one dollar. How about traveling between provinces by train? ? Sounds enticing and enticing?
Let's look at a one-dollar inter-provincial train ride!
(1) Train 6026
If you want to use a dollar to take a train and travel between provinces, you can't use high-speed rail because high-speed rail's running costs are very high. For one yuan, you can not even touch high-speed rail cars. So which train are we taking?
This is actually train 6026 operated by Wuhan Railway Bureau. This train is an antique and has been in service since 1996 in last century, and nearly 30 years have passed since today. up. But this is such a vintage train that has not raised fares for decades, and it stops at various small stations to ease transport needs of tourists in towns and villages.
This is a Beijing-Kowloon train from Jiujiang in Jiangxi Province to Hubei. When talking about Beijing-Kowloon line, people of Jiangxi have something to say because they think that Beijing-Kowloon line is line from Beijing to Jiujiang.
In fact, with subsequent development, Beijing-Kowloon line has expanded to Kowloon in Hong Kong, but "nine" in Jiujiang is still more important in hearts of locals.
So today we will use one yuan to take this train. What can we enjoy on this train? You can enjoy electric fans in summer and heating in winter, but heating is provided by train's own boiler.
While it seems a little simple today, for post-90s and post-80s it is their youthful memory of that era, with a nostalgic vibe.
(2)One dollar per province
So today we want to use one dollar to travel around provinces, and we have to do it at two special stations on this train. Not only can you cross province directly, but you can also stand on bridge to enjoy scenery, and this bridge is also famous bridge over Yangtze River.
How about this? Isn't it exciting? Then these two stations are from Jiujiang in Jiangxi to Xiaochikou in Hubei Province. The distance between these two stations is very close, separated by provincial boundary line, so we can realize crossing of provinces between two stations.
Pay one yuan on this train, and after buying a ticket, you can enjoy scenery in car for 12 minutes. For 12 minutes, you can also watch Yangtze River under bridge on bridge, and uncles and aunts in car.chat.
Such a place with scenery and atmosphere can be realized for just one yuan, isn't it very exciting?
(3) Community Charity Train
Actually, current train has lost its purpose for making a profit and basically exists as a public welfare train. After all, its full fare is only 15 yuan, which is very cheap compared to cost. In fact, an internal employee of railway bureau reported that when train began to run, it was not designed as a passenger transport, but was created as a means of transportation for employees of railway bureau.
Later, to alleviate transport needs of town's residents, wagons were specially added to develop passenger traffic. There are only four cars on train, one of which is specially designed for service personnel, and only three cars are used for development of passenger traffic.
The people who board this train are not travelers who need to travel or travel to major cities, but mostly gather among farmers and residents of small towns. Some residents of small towns want to take a bus in their county to go shopping in major cities in Hubei Province.
After all, it takes only more than an hour to get there by car, compared to a trip by a private car, it is much more convenient, and fare is not expensive. Farmers want to sell vegetables, meat, and other crops they grow at market, so they specifically take train and spend one dollar to cross the province to Hubei to sell.
But what makes people feel funny is that their products are often sold out without going to Hubeibecause many passengers and friends in car saw their fresh vegetables, took initiative to buy, and even staff such as flight attendants will buy in compartment here.
The car was filled with a lively and warm atmosphere. When farmers who want to sell their own vegetables get off train, there are often very few left, if not nothing at all, and they can head straight for return train to return home.
Such a classic car is still working as a public charity. In fact, country does not want people to forget memory of that time and keep some memories for people of that time. But with development of time, he will definitely not be able to follow trends of time and will eventually be eliminated in long river of history. Therefore, interested friends may want to try it now, because no one knows on what day this train will stop running and end its warm life.
