A venture on a misty late summer day into the far suburban mountains of Beijing. It was impressive to view from a vantage point how the corps of engineers managed to dig through mountains and lay bridges to traverse through the difficult landscape. However getting close brought the shock and amaze generated by feeling the movement of the beasts of the industrial era. The railroad and the trains through the mountains are not only the lifeline of economy, but also a great monument, in the terms of cultural geography, the embodiment of human activities shaping the landscape.
