Recently, a photographers discarded train carriage in Hangzhou caused a lot of attention. The abandoned car was found by railway enthusiasts at the end of last year. As the Asia super special express, which was running in the northeastern region when Japanese troops invaded China, continued to visit here with iron friends and photographers. A staff member of the Shanghai railway museum said that after getting the clues, they contacted the China Railway Museum and studied whether the car was the Asia Minor train, but there was no clear conclusion until now. The red network of abandoned carriages In April 18th, Mr. Cheng, a freelance photographer in Hangzhou, went to photograph this suspected Asiatic carriage. Mr. Cheng told the Beijing Youth Daily that the carriage was located outside an abandoned tunnel, with slightly raised hills on both sides, full of trees and grass. According to the photos he took, the outside of the car was somewhat similar to the ordinary green train, but the green skin was partially lost, revealing a large area of brick red rust, and the window glass was mostly broken, leaving a different hole in the size and the rift of the length and length. In addition, some parts of the carriages are covered with green moss and weeds, which seem to have been parking for a long time. Because of the serious damage to the interior of the car, Mr. Cheng did not enter the car for safety consideration, just staying at the door, but it could also feel the cold and damp inside. From the outside, the interior of the car was raised, cracks, all kinds of wall and decorative materials fell on the ground, a backrest stool was slightly bent in the middle of the car, and the top of the car had a clear break. Many netizens saw the photos of the compartment indicating that they wanted to see the appearance of the car in person, and some people asked Mr. Cheng the specific location of the carriage. But Cheng said that many places inside and outside the carriages were corroded and rusted, and the ground inside the carriage was all protruding and messy. In addition, there are many mosquitoes in the compartment, and he has seen fresh snake skin. It is not safe to recommend you to go there. As early as last November, railway enthusiasts in Hangzhou said that an old train carriage was found at the staff training base in Hangzhou. The length of the 24.5 meters, the end of the straight up, the small windows, the 3 axle bogies, which they said together that the car may be the once Asian train carriage. Since then, railway enthusiasts have gone to explore the truth. The prebirth of a generation of famous cars With this abandoned car becoming popular on the Internet, whether it came from the previous generation of famous cars Asia has also become a concern for many people. According to the data, in November 1, 1934, the Japanese government launched the super special class express in the South Manchuria Railway Corporation of the northeastern colonial institution. In order to boast of the strength of the Manchuria Railway and the railway technology of Japan at that time, the design and construction of the Asia Minor was no cost at all, but it was called the high-speed railway at that time. The Asia train has six green carriages with a blue streamline locomotive, a luggage compartment after the locomotive, and three other carriages with two seats, a two carriage with a suede sofa seat, a dining car for Western food and tea, and a prospect (landscape) carriage. The train is a fully enclosed air-conditioned carriage, and an adjustable automatic seat controlled by electric buttons. The Asia Minor is 701.4 kilometers from Dalian and Changchun. It is only about 8 hours and 30 minutes, with an average speed of 82.5 km, and the maximum operating speed is up to 130 km / h. In September 1935, the operation area of the train extended northward to Harbin, and the whole running time increased to about 13 hours. In February 1943, the Asian train was terminated, and locomotives and carriages were converted to ordinary trains. In 1945, some passenger carriages were transported to the former Soviet Union, and the remaining locomotives and coaches were accepted by China. At present, the existing traction locomotives and carriages of the Asia Minor are exhibited in museums or railway departments, and some carriages are missing. Is this the old car in the Hangzhou staff training base? Is it the carriages of Asia train? Many railway history experts and enthusiasts have different views on this. Some experts have seen the pictures and say to the media that the car is similar to some of the features of the Asian car, but it is only a few similar details, and it is difficult to explain that the old car came from the Asian Minor. A staff member of the Shanghai Railway Museum told the Beiqing newspaper that in the early 90s of last century, the car was taken as a scrap car and was sent to the Hangzhou staff training base of the Shanghai Railway Administration as a teaching tool. After getting the clues, they contacted the China Railway Museum, and did the research and demonstration of whether the car in the Hangzhou staff training base was the Asian Asian train, but there is no clear conclusion. The staff introduced, after the Asia Minor train was received, had been running in the Shanghai Railway Bureau, but before the Shanghai Railway Bureau has a vehicle factory like the imitation of the Asia Minor train, and the years are relatively long, it is determined that there is a certain degree of difficulty. Regarding this, the relevant staff of the China Railway Museum also told reporters at Beiqing Bao that the research and identification of this carriages is still in progress.
