If you come to Dalian, you must take the tram. It seems to be the only feature that has been retained in China. There are only three tram lines left in the city - "201 Road, 202 Road, 203 Road. At present, all the 3000 trams on Dalian 203 Road were manufactured by Japanese railway vehicle manufacturers from 1935 to 1938. They are one of the oldest trams still in service in the world. The 3000 tramcar occupies an important position in the history of tramcar technology development and is the representative of the first generation of tramcar in the world. The most representative of the historical features of Dalian's tram line is the line of No. 201 tram "Dongguan Street-Market Street-Beijing Street". This 1 km long section is the oldest existing streetcar line in Dalian. 201 Road (Railway) Dalian Railway Station - Dongguan Street - Market Street - Datong Street - Beijing Street - May 1 Square - Zhengong Street - Xinggong Street - Shahekou Railway Station 202 Road (Railway) Xinggong Street - Jinhui Mall - Liberation Square - Gongcheng Street - Peace Square - Convention and Exhibition Center - Xinghai Square - Fossil Institute - Medical University - Xinghai Park - Black Rock Reef - Hongji - Shuxiangyuan - Maritime University - Gaoxin Park-China Hualu-Qixianling-Hekou-Beihekou 203 Road (Tracked) Dalian Railway Station-Shengli Bridge-Minsheng Street-Democracy Square-Century Street-38 Square-27 Square-Siergou-Haizhiyun Square
Dalian tram has a history of over a hundred years, so this train bears the history of Dalian. Trams are divided into 201 and 202 routes. 201 has an older "green leather car". It runs from Xinggong Street to Yangtze River Road to Haizhiyun. 202 was opened later. It runs from Xi'an Road to Xiaoping Island. If you are traveling to Dalian, you are advised to take a "green car" and experience the feeling of an old car. The retro tram is one of the highlights of Dalian. It is the old style that the city is disappearing. Wooden seats, retro lights, dark green brown red carriages always evoke a strong sense of nostalgia, feeling that time has slowed down. Sitting in the tram, slowly and bit by bit on the track lane, the time seems to be back to the colonized old China in the 1930s. This sense of traversing is so real, time seems to be solidified.
Trams make Dalian a city full of nostalgia. The history of trams is almost as long as that of this city. Tracks are laid on the ground and cables are erected over the streets. At the end of the journey, the flight attendant will come down and turn the switch, all of which seem to be back to the past. Now the trams in operation are dominated by new trams. Occasionally, old trams flashed in front of me, but they failed to get on the spot several times. New trams have also been addicted to it. Spend one yuan or two yuan, don't know where the destination is, so sit on the car and sway, like this aimless feeling.
It's really very retro. It's wood inside. It's very beautiful. I think driving is the most interesting thing. Moving that thing, I didn't sit enough inside, I arrived at the station. Besides, the speed of the car is not proportional to the sound. At first, I heard the whine of the sound. It feels very fast. Later, when I look outside, it's really very slow.
Dalian's No. 202 and No. 201 trams are connected by three carriages. There are train tracks on the ground. They have their own running tracks. They don't go the same way as cars and buses. There are ticket-selling aunts on the trains. Many stations are not there. Before boarding the trains, ask them clearly. Every station arrives, the ticket-selling aunt will report to the station.
Dalian No. 201 bus is one of the old trams still in operation in China, which has a history of more than 100 years. We took two stops from Haizhiyun Park. There was no air conditioning in the bus. The fare was only one yuan per seat. It's interesting to watch the female driver control the direction switches of the copper trams with a sense of age, as the trams slowly move along the street. Friends traveling to Dalian must experience it for themselves.
The tram is the product of modern industrial development. Since 1879, tram has gradually played an increasingly important role in the world. Dalian is the only city in China that has both traditional tram operation and modern tram operation. There are only two tram lines left. In 1907, the South Manchuria Railway Corporation began to plan and construct the first tramway line in Dalian. It started construction in 1908, completed on August 9, 1909, and operated on September 25, 1909. It is the first tramway line in Northeast China. By 1939, there were 10 tram lines operating in Dalian, the length of which increased to 32.7 kilometers. Tramway 202, formerly known as Tramway 6, runs from Taizheng Square (today's Liberation Square) to Black Rock Reef. Now from Xinggong Street to Xiaoping Island, it is 12.6 kilometers long and has 19 stations with a fare of 1 yuan. It passes through Xi'an Road Business Circle, Xinghai Square Scenic Area, Xinghai Park Scenic Area, High-tech Park and so on, and can enjoy the scenery along Zhongshan Road-Huangpu Road. No. 201 tramcar, modern tramcar and old tramcar are two types of tramcar. Through the former 201 (Dalian Railway Station-Shahekou Railway Station) and 203 (Dalian Railway Station-Haizhiyun Park), the section bus running Haizhiyun Park-Xinggong Street and Huale Square-Xinggong Street is priced at 1-2 yuan. The section bus is priced at Dalian Railway Station.
As mentioned in the movie "Spend a Long Time with Anthony", "Running Man" AB returned to Dalian and had two experiences. Although after many years of baptism, it can be seen that the interior of the tram has been redecorated, and the small train is different from the ordinary car, which means it feels closer to history.
Very unique antique tram from Dalian Railway Station to Haizhiyun Park is a modern two-section long car to the end of the section. After replacing an antique car with a 20-centimeter driving position at both ends, a joystick controls the acceleration and pedals. It is estimated that the interior decoration of the brake is apparently the style experience of the early last century./
