As an extension line of Yingtan-Xiamen Railway, the Railway Cultural Park, the old railroad once abandoned for many years, after repairs in recent years, now is re-opened as a cultural park to tell the story of Yingtan-Xiamen railway Xiamen section.
The weather was very good at the weekend; the sun on the sky and and all varieties of bougainvillea blooming on both sides of the park add much vitality to the quiet old railroad.
There are many entrances to the railway part and this one is one of them. The path beside is leading to four scenic spots, namely, Wanshi Park, Jinbang Park, Seaside Park and Zhongshan Park.
