The only monosyllabic station in country with "surname" of the contractor suddenly became a place of registration of tourists
Currently, many netizens are as crazy as they collect stamps to collect a lot of things that make us feel weird. For example, some netizens like to collect names of train stations. At many train stations across country, they take pictures one by one and put them in their photo albums for collection. To be honest, such a personal passion is actually very worthy of our respect, as well as a very significant cause - to open stations throughout country.
But among many photos, I found a particularly strange station, name of which consists of only one word. You know, stations that we usually see are all named after city, at least two characters. This is first time I see a station with one character, and history of this station is very interesting.
(1) Song Station
This railway station is located in a small town in Heilongjiang Province and was built in 1990s. The purpose of this railway station at first was not very large, mainly for convenience of freight and passenger traffic in small villages and towns. It can be said that demand is very small, because if you want to travel far, there is no way to get to big city by train in this small village and town, and you need to change trains and so on.
A lot of people prefer to use private cars to get directly to a major train station, from where they take a train to city where they need to work. But this railway station still has its value, in recent years it has been playing with its light and warmth for local freight and passenger traffic.
The reason this little train station is so unique is because it only has one word in its name. There is nothing unique in front of station, because addition of word "station" at end is two words. But you can see difference in different ticketing programs or train ticket receipts.
In our opinion, display of "Beijing-Changchun" is very ordinary, but suddenly the display of "Sung-Harbin" is very strange. How can there be a train station name with only one song symbol? The story of why this name was chosen, we will talk about it later.
Because many netizens have discovered uniqueness of this train station, many netizens have come here to check in. After seeing this traffic, relevant local departments decided to take advantage of this opportunity and publish it to outside world in order to increase popularity associated with it.
Therefore, a large sign with name "The only one-character station in country" was installed in front of station square. Moreover, translation into a foreign language is also carried out, as if so that foreign tourists can come here and see uniqueness of this station.
After this incident was photographed by netizens on Internet, it can be said that it became a small hit. People complain that name here is too random. It's more casual than current parents after 90s.
But while everyone laughed at it, they caught key point, meaning he called him whatever he wanted, and where did he decide to go? Let's look further.
(2) Use contractor name as rail station name
Yes, this train station is called Song because contractor who built this train station in 1990s was called Song. Isn't that too outrageous for us today? How could a railway station be so casually named after a contractor.
But this incident is so outrageous and it still happened and went on for decades. Perhaps names of some local cities are not suitable as name of railway station, so after a lot of research they wanted to replace it with a non-standard and concise name.
So, I happened to see this contractor and just wanted to establish a good relationship with him to borrow flowers to offer to Buddha. Naming station "Song" can not only make station very innovative, but also please contractors, and perhaps give them a certain discount when calculating final payment.
Of course, this is purely our guess, but this name actually exists, and we do not know specific shade, so we can only consider it based on our own imagination.
(3) Leymus chinensis Station
It seems that name of this area was accidentally inherited from ancestors.Anyone can inherit it. There is actually a Leymus chinensis station right next to Song Station. The name sounds strange. Is it because cattle and sheep often graze in this place, and cattle and sheep eat grass, that is why it was called Leymus chinensis station?
So we don't know specific reason for this name, but it should be very interesting to guess names of people here from this unique name. At least in their spiritual world, they are very playful. To call them that, one can imagine how rich their spiritual world must be.
We can only say that world is too big, and there is still a lot of interesting things that we don't know yet. So if you have free time, you can act directly and travel all over world to see. Look at those interesting things we don't know, and look at treasures that silently shine in places we don't know. Let youth not be wasted, and life not invented.
