Trip Moments

Aurora_Rice_Ball   
This is an abandoned train hidden in the old forests of the mountains. The front of the train is an abandoned tunnel entrance, and the atmosphere is extremely mysterious. Because it is very easy to shoot cool ins winds, many photographers even come here from outside.
This train shape is suspected to be the "Asian" "super premium" express train running in the northeast during the war. It is said that after the Asian Games ceased operation in 1945, some of the carriages were transported to the former Soviet Union, and some of the carriages were still missing. Whether there is a real car that has flown to Hangzhou has not been confirmed.
I originally wanted to come to the card this summer, but I still can't beat the fear of poisonous mosquitoes and snakes. Sure enough, it is wise to choose the fall, even the mosquito repellent water is useless, the snakes are not seen, but the journey is a lot of twists and turns.
This train is in the Hangzhou Railway Workers College, which can be directly entered from the main entrance of the school. Because too many people have taken pictures before, the school has now banned visitors from entering, and the originally open compartment door has also been sealed. If you want a train, you need to get in from the mountain behind you. In order to prevent it from being twice collapsed, I will not write about the mountain road method.
Because of the age, the iron of the train has been weathered for more than half, the glass is also damaged seriously, the windows are covered with moss and weeds, the wet plants and leaves are surrounded by the whole train, even during the day. Very eerie.
I have to admit that this place is very filmy, especially in the midday sun, the car is covered with mottled trees, as if passing through the 1940s, only a small suitcase.
