🔥Buyi, the last emperor of Qing Dynasty [Guangshen Intercity Railway]🚞 📍Detailed address: Intersection of Honggui Road and People’s Park Road【 People’s Park】 📷 Taken at the pedestrian bridge of Honggui Road above the Buji River in Shenzhen (time around 4pm⌚️) - 🌱As early as the 16th year of Guangxu (late 1890), the alternate prefect of Guangdong, Yi Xuehao, asked Li Hanzhang, the governor of Guangdong and Guangxi, to build a railway from Guangzhou to Hong Kong Kowloon, a leased place in the UK at the time. This was the original Guangzhou-Shenzhen railway. - 🌱Because Britain was dealing with the Second Boer War, it was put on hold. In the first month of the 33rd year of Guangxu in the Qing Dynasty (1907 AD), the "Guangzhou-Kowloon Railway Loan Contract" was signed in Beijing. The British borrowed 1.5 million pounds to build the Guangdong section of the railway by the Qing government. Construction began in July of the same year. The reign of the last emperor Aixinjueluo Puyi. - 🌱Approved by the State Council in 1991, the Guangzhou-Shenzhen quasi-high-speed railway was established; on December 23, 1994, the quasi-high-speed line reconstruction and third-line addition project was officially put into operation. On May 28, 1998, the Guangzhou-Shenzhen line quasi-high-speed electrification project was completed and officially put into operation on August 28. After electrification, the third line of electrification was completed and opened to traffic in September 2000, becoming the country's first three-line parallel, fully closed, and fully electrified railway. - 🌱Before the end of the 1970s, China's reform and opening up had not been implemented, and Shenzhen had not yet established a city. The Guangzhou-Shenzhen Railway was only a branch railway, and there were very few passenger trains between Guangzhou and Shenzhen. The express passenger train between Guangzhou and Shenzhen was first operated in 1959, so the Guangzhou-Shenzhen Railway was the only way for foreign passengers to transfer from Hong Kong to participate in the Guangzhou Trade Fair. - 🌱 Since the 1980s, due to China’s reform and opening up, Shenzhen established a special economic zone, the Pearl River Delta region’s economy has developed rapidly, and imported goods and passengers have increased greatly. The original single line of Guangzhou-Shenzhen Railway could not meet the transportation needs, so it was built in 1984. On the second line, the Guangzhou-Shenzhen Railway Company was established at the same time, directly under the Guangzhou Railway Bureau, responsible for operation management and construction of the double track. - 🌱From steam locomotives to CRH1A EMUs (Harmony), this is not only a milestone in Chinese railway culture, but also the stories of countless people.
