Taiwan Straits Network January 19th According to Fuzhou Daily, at 8 o’clock on the 16th, at the entrance of Fuzhou Railway Station, the returning hometown rushed into the town. At this point, at the station verification window, passenger Lin Cheng came to take over his son Lin Shenghuang. Lin Shenghuang just got out of the night shift and saw his son's tired look. After a simple transfer, Lin Cheng started his day job.
This year is Lin Cheng's 30th year of serving the Spring Festival and Lin Shenghuang's third year of participating in the Spring Festival. When the Spring Festival is approaching, when the family reunite, the pair of "father and son soldiers" gather together and leave more.
People walking least in stations
In order to ensure the smooth return of passengers, the verification window is inseparable from people. Nowadays, no matter who the father and son are in the post, they have developed a habit of "trying to drink as little water as possible and move around, and eat more throat candy".
Three years into his post, Lin Shenghuang's range of activities during his daily work was limited to the ticket inspection window-only one person, one table and one chair, and the night shift from 17.40 the previous day to 8 am the next day, except for using the bathroom, he stayed close to the workbench.
"During the Spring Festival, passengers are several times as usual. It is cold, and passengers cannot be stuck at the entrance, so they must be fast and accurate." Lin Shenghuang said, after a shift, "except tired or tired."
In front of father Lao Lin, Xiao Lin never shouted tired. "Self-service real-name verification gates share a lot of workload. Before the gates were introduced, passengers entered the station by manual inspection and had to affix their official seals. Tickets were checked and sealed tens of thousands of times a day, and my dad was often tired. Can't lift up. "Lin Shenghuang said.
Common choice for three generations
As an old railway man, Lin Cheng said that when he was young he took over his father's mantle and never let go. It turned out that Lao Lin's father was a railway repairman. When Lao Lin joined the trade, his father told him "Zi inherits his father's business, and he wants to do what he loves."
Lin Cheng recalled that when he was young, "Every Spring Festival is a rare day to meet with his father." He and his mother, who were still in their hometown of Jiangxi, had to rush to Fuzhou to reunite with their father before the Spring Festival. The mother would make a table with his own hands and wait for the father who returned at night. "Even a simple meal is happy and satisfying. of".
Affected by the family, Lin Shenghuang became a "comrade in arms" with his father Lin Cheng after graduating from Hunan Railway Science and Technology Vocational College in 2018.
Knowing that young people can't sit still, in addition to "beating" his son when he takes over, Lao Lin will also write down the problems and solutions encountered in his work in the work manual, and pass on the treasure to his son. This has also become a father and son A rare common language. "I made some notes in the manual, and marked the useful places. I will retire in the future. He will not be in a hurry in special circumstances."
"This year's New Year's Eve, our father and son still have their own meals, but it doesn't matter, we can all go home safely and it's worth it!" Lin Cheng said, according to the schedule, the 30-year-old happened to be his son working in the day shift and he was working in the night shift.
