Walking along Enning Road, you will see the sign of Zhan Tianyou's former residence. Drilling along the alley in the direction indicated, a typical Xiguan house appeared. Green brick wall, movable gate, magnificent and flowery Manchurian window. Unlike the general Xiguan House, it is a train coupler, a section of "Ren" track in Zhan Tianyou Primary School outside the window, and a section of railway sleepers.
Located at No. 42 Yacai Lane, Twelve Fuxi Street, Enning Road, Liwan District, Guangzhou City, this simple green brick, wooden oak and Manzhou window is an original Xiguan house. Next to the memorial hall is a primary school named after Zhan Tianyou. A small green garden links the former residence with the school. There are miniature "human" railway and "Badaling Great Wall" built in the garden. This is a commemoration of the great masterpiece of "father of China Railway" - Beijing-Zhangzhou Railway.
The "Zhan Tianyou Memorial Hall of Former Residence" on Enning Road is located in a small lane with a small bridge at the entrance and a sign on it. Zhan Tianyou was one of the first Chinese students to study in the United States in the late Qing Dynasty. He graduated from Yale University and received a doctorate from the University of Hong Kong. He is the founder of China Railway and the pioneer of China Railway.

Zhan Tianyou's former residence is located on Enning Road, where Zhan Tianyou, the father of China's railways, came into being and grew up. If it is Xiguan style tour, here is also an indispensable part, but we should pay attention to the tour time, even on holidays Monday, it is not open, unlike other museums are normally open. Now the former residence is mainly to show Zhan Tianyou's life and historical materials of his contribution to the railway. It is a good place to learn history.
