Qiang, the steam locomotive trains in Jiayang, enjoys the reputation of "the only normal passenger steam narrow-gauge trains in the world" and is still shuttling through the mountains of Jiayang mining area, known as the "living fossil of the first industrial revolution in the world". Recently, I saw a TV documentary about the departure and retention of Jiayang small train. In spring, it is the best season to take a small train to see the mountain rape flower field. The picture of the small train spraying mist through the rape flower field is the most classic picture of Jiayang small train. Sitting in the car, the view outside the window is very beautiful. Large areas of rape flower fields are decorated with pear flowers, apricot flowers, peach blossoms, wooded hills, ponds and farmhouses. We feel that the rapeseed flowers here are very fat, spikes are longer than usual, and the proportion of the whole plant seems to be really larger. As long as the windows are opened, the choking soot smell of steam locomotives will penetrate into the nose, especially through tunnels. At Bee Rock, visitors get off to watch the train show through the rapeseed bushes. Smoked and whistling trains rush from the rapeseed blossoms on the slopes, which is the most representative landscape. Another performance point is Liangshuituo, which is said to be the only scenic spot on the small train line that can photograph the combination of small trains and mountains and rivers. The most beautiful season is when the tungzi blossoms. The rainbow created by the small train performance steam jet is the biggest bright spot. The performance of the train is hard enough, the whistle is loud, and the smoke is very powerful. But when we meet rainy and cloudy days, the rainbow can't be built anyway.
First I went to worship Leshan Buddha, and then I went to Jiayang, a place that amazed me. There are the last narrow-gauge steam trains in China, as well as remnants of the Maoist industrial and mining monument. Looking at the old photos and the ruins of the town, I can't help but sigh. Those young people in the pictures were struggling for the industrial construction of the motherland in this remote mountain ditch. Now we are busy for cars, houses and children. In the torrent of the era, ordinary people from generation to generation circle ups and downs. At that time, people left this abandoned town. What will our generation leave behind?_________
Our reservation for one o'clock in the afternoon may not have been taken more than two hours in advance of the peak season. There were few people on the train, only one carriage, air conditioning and no coal ash sticking to the body. The ticket contains the mine. The most interesting thing to go down the mine is the monkey car. The children like it very much, but it's too short. It's free to go to the museum with a set ticket and go for a tour. When I returned, I was not so lucky. I said that the air conditioner was broken, and there were no two carriages. It was very doubtful. Many passengers complained and the weather was hot. There are jet shows on the trains and back, and the attendants and mine lecturers have good attitudes. On the whole, it's worth going.
There is a special bus to Jiayang at 9:00 a.m. at the Tea Shop Passenger Station, but the return journey is more than 1:00, which cannot be reached. It is suggested to buy a one-way ticket, go back to the parking lot and take a 25 yuan sightseeing bus to Ma Miao, and then take the Zhongba key back. But we should arrive at the bus station before 6 o'clock, otherwise we can't go back to Leshan to return to Chengdu by high-speed rail.
Masks do not play a very important role. I think it would be better if there were raincoats. All the body is cinder... Few people, only used two carriages, very crowded, open the window into coal ash, open the window and too hot, it is simply taking pictures with life... It's a little late. It should be better to blossom in early March. The clouds blocked the sun and did not see the steam rainbow. It's a little pity. I bought a one-way pass, went to the mine and experienced a miner. It was interesting. The lecturer was very good. I learned a lot. It took three hours to exchange buses and minibuses from Leshan to Leshan, and it took 10:40 for buses. In order to catch up with time, we changed the buses with five yuan more at the entrance of the passenger station, and the buses left immediately after the buses were full. The traffic is very inconvenient. Maybe because of the off-season, the town's snack street is not very stalled, there are no people. It's nice to come out of the mine to the beautiful scenery of the Alsophila Valley. Then take the old car to the Bama, and finally return to Leshan at 7:00 p.m.
Located in the territory of Qianwei County, Leshan City, there is Jiayang Industrial Group, which was founded in the 1940s, to mine coal. The name of Jiayang is taken from Jiazhou, the ancient name of Leshan, and named Jiayang because it is located in the south of the mountain. This narrow-gauge train driven by a steam engine is specially built for coal transportation. It is the only narrow-gauge railway still in operation in the world. Its gauge is only half of the standard track. It travels less than 20 kilometers and its speed is only 20 kilometers per hour. It can be regarded as a living fossil of the industrial revolution. Bagou Town, at the end of the train operation, was the place where the miners lived at that time. It left many traces of the Cultural Revolution and witnessed the changes of the times. After arriving at the terminal, you can choose to continue visiting Huangcunjing, the mine in that year, or you may choose to return by the canyon sightseeing bus, which is a classic car. It is very pleasant to walk all the way to the deep canyon. If summer comes, it should be even cooler.
The narrow-gauge steam train still in operation is the original steam age-quot; living fossil-quot;. It turned out to be a commuter car for workers in Bagou Coal Mine, Qianwei County, and also a means of transportation for local people. The surroundings of the carriage railways are reminiscent of the old events of the rise of the Industrial Revolution. Taking a train is like crossing a tunnel of time and space. The best season for sightseeing is April and May. There are plenty of flowers on both sides of the railway, sprouting shoots and jointing, and rapeseed flowers all over the mountains.
I like it here. Should this be a village? On the top of the hill, the chartered car goes up the hill, and the air is super good. It's better than downhill. It was all dressed up as the Cultural Revolution, but the villagers were hospitable. The food is delicious. Grandma drags you to chat. The train is fun. Photo-loving relatives can go. Remember to wear a mask
Leshan Qiangwei Jiayang Small Railway is one of the few remaining trains in the world that retains internal combustion engines. And they use short standard orbits. The small train was originally used to transport coal mines out and villagers to and fro. Now, it has completely become a commercial tourism, and the significance of its existence is to let tourists sit. More expensive, one way 80 people, will get off halfway, there is a scenic spot to take photos, the train in the turn intentionally ejected whistle, let everyone take pictures.
