火车站站台票,地方气息浓厚,每张票印有铁路路徽和所属铁路局简称,不少票面还印有当地的主要名胜古迹,如苏州的虎丘、北京的北海公园白塔、杭州的西湖等。郑州铁路局发行的站台票,26枚连起来就是一幅完整的《清明上河图》。是一套收藏价值非常高的站台票。

Plat­form Ticket

ARiver­side Scene at Qing­ming Fes­ti­val (a mas­ter­piece by Song painter Zhang Ze­d­uan), a plat­form ticket pack of 26 pieces, is­sued by Zhengzhou Rail Bureau, is highly col­lectable. In China’s ‘snail train’ era, plat­form tick­ets were com­mon­place and also served for tourism pro­mo­tion pur­poses, es­pe­cially in cities such as Bei­jing, Suzhou and Hangzhou. In the old days when trains were ex­cru­ci­at­ingly slow and ur­ban mo­bil­ity was poor, a pic­turesque plat­form ticket with the scenery of Bei­hai Park or the West Lake of Hangzhou brought about a deeper sense of pres­ence and ad­ven­ture, than to­day’s elec­tronic tick­et­ing.
