Beijing has a special direct train, whole journey is 1228 kilometers, and scenery along way is very beautiful.
I don't know if you're interested in how train works. Recently, Xinte has been studying various details of trains and railway bureaus. I have found that if you want to make a profit, you must install more stations so that more passengers can get in and out in a short amount of time.
This is why many long-distance trains stop at a particular station almost every hour. But this train from Beijing is special. Only a few people across country know about this train, and many have never heard of it.
(1) Special string
First of all, when a railway bureau plans a route, it usually has to take into account stops between starting station and final station, as well as influence of various factors. To a certain extent, it is necessary to ensure both passenger traffic and vacant seats. In general, origin station is a large station, and destination station is also a large station, which can meet flow of migrant workers or business travelers between two stations.
But not everyone will buy a full ticket, because they have different directions. Therefore, in order to ensure that all seats on bus can be used effectively, it is necessary to set up some intermediate stations at this time so that guests can get on and off bus at any time.
A passenger who gets off bus can get to destination with lowest price without buying a terminal. Affects income of railway bureau. But this special Beijing train goes straight from Beijing to Hangzhou and only stops at Mingguang Station, which we've never heard of.
Even this Mingguang station is not a big station with heavy traffic, but a small station in an inconspicuous county town. Despite fact that it has a long history, passenger traffic is still small. What is reason for such a special train?
(2) Available Rates
Firstly, this is a train from Beijing to Yangzhou, and flow of people between these two areas is very large. That is, there is a huge demand between starting and ending stations of this train.
Due to demand, this train is available and reason there are no stops in middle is because main people who can take this train are those who want to go to Beijing or Yangzhou.
Secondly, ticket price for this train is very affordable, there are no hard seats on train, only hard beds. The price of a hard sleeper is less than 1/2 cost of a ticket for a high speed train from Beijing to Yangzhou, and even a soft sleeper is not as expensive as a high speed train ticket.
Therefore, more people will want to use better services at a lower price, because no matter how convenient high-speed rail is, you still have to sit. And this train is not only cheaper, but you can also enjoy a sound sleep and spend trip lying down.
(3) Short travel time
In terms of travel time, it only takes over ten hours to get to Yangzhou from Beijing. S-Bahn is only three hours shorter than a train, so it seems like a cheaper train ride is much more affordable than high-speed rail.
This is precisely competitiveness of this train. If it stops halfway, then this will definitely lengthen the travel time of this train, which will lose its competitive advantage with high-speed rail, and also lose its raison d'être. .
(4) Strong sense of experience
Allegedly, many friends who rode train said that due to too many stops in middle of train, different people would get in and out for a certain period of time. Even if you want to rest during this time, you are easily disturbed. People who have just got into car are busy packing their luggage and talking to people around. People who are already in car find it difficult to close their doors. eyes and rest.
Even before train arrives at station, tourists who want to get off train are already busy packing their luggage and chatting with friends about a specific route after getting off train. This will also apply to other passengers who will not get off bus.
If there are too many stops, it will force people who get on and off bus to do same thing every hour. Well rested, fully affected.
But this train is different. After landing, tourists hardly need to leave again. If they want to rest, they can just lie down on bed and fall asleep. Since no one is getting in or out of car, there is much less conversation and sound of luggage colliding. Even compared to high-speed rail with same line and shorter time, it is very convenient because high-speed rail will have many people coming and going.
(5) Good reputation
The train has one of biggest competitive advantages - a good reputation. The people who took this train are almost full of praise on Internet, except for her comfortable experience and cheaper tickets.
People think it can be compared to sentence in poem "Chaoqi Baidi Caiyunjian", which leaves Beijing in morning and arrives in Yangzhou in evening. There is absolutely no need to be influenced by various environments, and it can be said that feeling of comfort is very strong, so it has always maintained a good reputation on the Internet.
So special, such a great train, would you like to ride?
