Station 380 on the Rail Documentary: Been There, Done That!

Next Station: China is my rail documentary, with the camera rolling as of 2017, to all stations in China. It being the third-largest country by some counts, finishing this project will take a heck of a long time. Some places are far and remote (and not easy to get into — the likes of Xinjiang and Tibet are examples), others involve ferries (Hainan island), and still others require travel at a certain time of year only (northeastern China gets hellishly cold in the winter!).

You’re seeing me at the extremely picturesque station of Qiandaohu, literally Lake of a Thousand Islands, on a new Hangzhou-Mt Huangshan HSR opened right on Christmas Day 2018. (What a fantastic gift to those lucky locals.)
