On February 8, Li Qing and Li Jie were celebrating their birthdays at Chengdu East Railway Station. As no smoking or fire is allowed on carriages, there were no candles on their birthday cake, but this did not lessen their happiness at all.
CHONGQING (CQNEWS) -- February 8 is an ordinary day for the Spring Festival travel rush. However, it is special for Li Qing and Li Jie, two train attendants for the Chongqing segment – it is their 24th birthday. This is the first time for these twin sisters to celebrate their birthdays together in seven years, because they have always had their birthday during the Spring Festival travel rush.
As the conductor of G8504, Li Qing started work at 4:00 with Li Jie, the intern conductor, and other train attendants. They have to stand for at least 10 hours, walk 10km in the narrow carriages and bow and greet the passengers a thousand times every day. Li Qing secretly ordered a birthday cake for this valuable reunion and celebrated a special birthday with her sister and other colleagues. (Translated by Sun Jiuyang, Fathom Language Limited)
