Taking a cable car to meet the old times
Most of those who ride the Cable Car are older local residents. When they meet someone they know on the Cable Car, they can greet to each other or have a chat. Time seems to have become soft and slow at that moment.
Li Xianzhong, 70 years old, a retired employee of Changshou Cable Car, has fond memories after returning to the place where he worked for decades, “In those days, the county’s officials and the public came to volunteer to work and move the stones, and every day two or three hundred people were busy at the site. Now, the stone pier of the cable Car is the only thing left unrenovated.”
Li Xianzhong still remembers that in the 1980s, the Cable Car undertook technical improvements to the road base, and many people volunteered to participate, “In those days, there was basically no machinery in the construction, and it was all carried by shoulders and hands, but everyone was very enthusiastic.”
