I've been thinking about visiting this famous station. I want to come by train in Dalian, but Lushun Railway Station has stopped passenger traffic since the light rail went directly to Lushun. It's like my imagination. The station preserves the most complete European architecture. The main body of the station is a wooden Russian-style building with unique shape. Straw cap oval spire, covered with feathery tiles, white walls and green windows, elegant style. The exquisite detail sculpture exudes exotic charm and unique and vivid shape. The most complete European-style platform in the station, with white walls and green tiles, red room corridor, is full of poetic and picturesque. The appearance and interior of the station are different. The train is out of service. The station is now a ticket office where tickets can be purchased. The train stoppage has lost the busyness of the railway station. In this loneliness, it has been a hundred years since we watched the track stretch under our feet. Time seems to pass through.
Lushun Railway Station was built in 1898. It was built after Lushun was rented by Russia. It is a wooden building with unique shape and Russian style. The Lushun Railway Station has now stopped operating as a tourist attraction and can only be seen outside the fence. Fortunately, we also saw old-fashioned trains passing by and heard long-lost train whistles.
Visiting the old railway station in Lushun, I felt that the Russian architectural style seemed to be back to that year. Although the ticket office was small, it was concise and bright. I visited another time in the ticket hall, just like feeling the scene of ticket sales in that year.
Generally, the old Lushun people will know that there is Lushun before Dalian. This is a Russian-style wooden building built in 1900 at Lushun Railway Station in Lushun, Lushun, but it was suspended in 2014. A small railway station witnesses not only the vicissitudes of history, but also the vicissitudes of years!!!
Lushun Railway Station is the terminal at the southern end of the South Branch of the Middle East Railway, which is a third-class station. In the early stage of the construction of the Middle East Railway, in order to meet the military needs, rail laying was extended to the Lushun Military Port wharf. The railway station was located near the wharf and adjacent to the Dalian Bay. It was once called "Lushunyi" in the Manchurian Railway Period. Loading Lushun Station, the building is under construction by Russian Engineer Gilschman. Brick and wooden structure, small and chic, more reflect the characteristics of Russian wooden architecture. The shape of the building is simple and lively, the plane is a zigzag shape, the facade is equipped with doors and buckets at the entrance, and the middle top is a green dome tower, which strengthens the dynamic sense of the central volume upward. On the top of the tower hung scaly iron tiles, showing some Russian local interest. The timber structure wind and rain shed on the platform is reasonable in structure, full of aesthetic feeling and integrated with the station. In 1898, Tsarist Russia rented a large brigade city and began to expand the military port and lay railways. When surveying the location of the railway station, it was originally planned to be in the Solar Trench. Later, for the need of military transportation, it was chosen at the site. The Lushun Railway Station was the terminal of the South Manchurian Railway Extension built during the Czarist Russia's invasion of Lushun. The Lushun Station was designed and built by the Russians in 1900. It was put into operation on July 14, 1903. Railway transportation was interrupted during the war between Japan and Russia in 1904, and it resumed operation in 1905. In 1907, the Lushun Railway was changed from narrow rail to standard rail. After Japan surrendered, the Soviet army took over the station and implemented the Sino-Soviet battalion. After Japan's defeat in 1945, the Soviet Red Army took over Lushun Station, which was operated jointly by China and the Soviet Union. It was not until December 1952 that the Chinese government officially took over the station. Small railway stations, inadvertently witnessed the rise and fall of history; small railway stations, silently record the surplus and surplus of the years. More than a century of wasted time has not mottled his memory, those accumulated words are only waiting to be told to the people who have traveled far away. Since Lushun Railway Station has great reference value in the study of architectural history, it was listed as a city-level cultural relics protection unit in 1985, and it is free to visit. In 1985, as a building of historical value, it was listed as a cultural relics protection unit at the municipal level in Dalian. In 2002, it was listed in the first batch of key protected buildings in Dalian. Maintenance was carried out in 2005. On April 22, 2014, Lushun Station ceased to operate and only retained the ticket business. Transportation transfer traffic - "Lushun Bus 2,3,5 accessible. A pair of trains will run daily to and from Dalian Railway Station before the development shutdown. There is another cargo transport line to Lushun Military Port. Since June 2009, foreigners are no longer prohibited from entering Lushun Railway Station. However, because the station is located in front of the military port, foreigners are still unable to move freely in the vicinity. In addition, in 2006, from the northeast to the Bohai Sea, the station established the Lushun West Railway Station from Dalian to other branches for the Yantai-Dalian Railway Ferry.
Small railway stations, inadvertently witnessed the rise and fall of history; small railway stations, silently record the surplus and surplus of the years. More than a century of wasted time has not mottled his memory, those accumulated words are only waiting to be told to the people who have traveled far away. It is also a must-visit scenic spot for tourism in Lushun.
