Chongqing - As Chinese New Year's Eve approaches, the 5630 train from Zunyi to Chongqing in Southwest China buzzes with activities.
Passengers can enjoy a market on the train, taste the New Year's Eve dinner from Tongzi and Guizhou, and appreciate intangible cultural heritage performances. Additionally, locals along the route can sell their agricultural products on the train and purchase goods for the New Year, creating a strong sense of happiness and achievement for everyone involved.
On the morning of February 5, at the Zunyi Railway Station in Guizhou, passengers were seen taking photos with a Year of the Dragon photo frame. At 10:53 AM, with a whistle, a train carrying New Year goods and agricultural products slowly left the station for Chongqing West Station. The train passed through 21 stations, including Songba, Loushanguan, and Tongzi. The carriages were decorated with lights, Spring Festival couplets, Chinese knots, and decorations for the Year of the Dragon, adding to the festive atmosphere.
Since the start of this year's Spring Festival travel rush, the relevant departments have organized a "New Year Goods Market" on the train to facilitate the locals along the route in purchasing New Year goods. In the market carriage, locals could not only buy New Year's goods but also sell their home-grown fruits and vegetables, poultry, and cured meat products. The goods were in such high demand that they often sold out quickly to passengers.
Besides purchasing agricultural products and New Year goods, passengers could enjoy Guizhou-specific intangible cultural heritage programs, including dance and song performances, enriching their travel experience.
After watching performances and tasting delicacies, the carriage's long tables were filled with Tongzi region's intangible heritage cuisines. Passengers on this train could not only admire the passing scenery but also taste authentic Tongzi delicacies, experiencing the rich local culture.
Running daily between Zunyi, Guizhou, and Chongqing for the New Year, this train not only offers many tourists the chance to experience a "slow" life and purchase agricultural products and New Year goods but also serves as a "wealth-creating train" for locals along the route to increase their income.
