During the Mid-Autumn Festival and National Day holidays, CRT Liziba Station was a must-visit among all sought-after attractions for non-local tourists. Lying in this mountainous city attracted tourists with its uniqueness, in consequence of which related cultural and creative products have been in vogue.
According to the tourist service center of Chongqing Rail Transit (CRT) and Liziba Cultural and Creative Experience Hall on October 9, rail transit themed cultural and creative products custom-made by Chongqing City Transportation Development & Investment Group Co., Ltd., especially those related to CRT Line 2 and Liziba Station, were sought after by numerous tourists.
Staff at Liziba Cultural and Creative Experience Hall said that the gold-plated key chains of the trains on various CRT lines, the brass bookmark rulers of Line 2 and Line 3, and the hand-painted postcards with the picture of a train running through high-rise buildings at Liziba Station all became hot-selling cultural and creative products during the holidays.
“I’m here to see the train running through high-rise buildings, and I hope to bring something related home as gifts for my relatives and friends,” said Ms. Zhang from Shanxi. She is quite fond of the postcards. She added, “The creative postcard is presented in the way of anime, comics, games, and novels (ACGN) as if the train was ‘eaten’ by a cat.”
In addition to the above-mentioned products, CRT train models in the Experience Hall exhibition area also inspired many tourists to buy them. These meticulously made models, like scaled-down trains, are visually appealing.
Given the popularity of trains on CRT Line 2 with tourists, the Experience Hall will soon launch a new cultural and creative product. According to the staff, this product is made of plastic blocks that can be assembled into a train of Line 2 and its rail, on which the train could run.
In the future, the development of CRT themed cultural and creative products will lay greater emphasis on train derivatives and commemorative tickets and cards, allowing tourists to take home more products of the “train running through high-rise buildings” presented by different carriers.
