In 2006, it was listed as a provincial cultural relic protection site. In May 2013, it was established as a national key cultural relic protection site. In 2014, it was rated as one of the nine most artistic railway stations in China.In recent years, the old site of Pukou Railway station and its surrounding buildings have been scarred and dilapidated due to the erosion of time and the destruction of war, as well as the neglect of management after the shutdown.In March 2018, the public interest litigation prosecutor of Nanjing Railway Inspection Institute walked into Pukou Railway Station, only to find the long corridor of the platform broken and broken, the rain corridor connecting the ferry terminal knee-deep in weeds, and the waiting hall littered with debris…”Despite what we had heard, what we saw as the closed iron doors of The Pukou railway station opened was heart-wrenching.”Nanjing Iron Procurator-general Zhang Min told reporters.After investigation, it is found that the property right of the old site of Pukou Railway Station belongs to China Railway Shanghai Bureau Group Co., LTD. (hereinafter referred to as Shanghai Bureau Group Co., LTD.), and nanjing East Railway Station is the management and use unit, but the administrative responsibility of cultural relics protection belongs to the local cultural protection department.How to assemble all parties to form a protective force has become a difficult problem for prosecutors.Nanjing Railway Inspection And Inspection Institute issued a procuratorial suggestion to Nanjing Municipal Bureau of Cultural Heritage to supervise pukou Railway Station in accordance with the law.Nanjing Municipal Bureau of Cultural Heritage immediately sent a letter to the cultural protection department of Jiangbei New Area to arrange cultural relics protection work.Jiangbei New Area cultural protection department said, we have been paying attention to the pukou railway station site, but the property is in Shanghai Bureau Group Company, it is difficult to coordinate.Prosecutors immediately docking Shanghai bureau group company, but the bureau for how to protect and use also do not take a good way.The separation of power from management is what caused the Pukou railway station to be left unmanaged.”Although there are differences in regions and industries, we all share the same goal of protecting cultural relics. What is missing is an opportunity to start a dialogue.”Zhang Min told reporters.Nanjing Railway Inspection And Quarantine Bureau reported the problem to jiangsu Provincial Procuratorate and Shanghai Branch of Railway Inspection and Quarantine Bureau, both of which received strong support.Through the joint efforts of the procurators of both sides, on July 31, 2019, the local administrative department and the railway property rights department held a round table meeting in Nanjing Jiangbei New Area, and reached an agreement that the protection of Pukou Railway Station should be included in the overall construction of Pukou Scenic belt of the Republic of China, so as to promote the protection of the overall style of the area.Set goals, how to implement?”The protection procedures of Pukou Railway Station are complicated and highly professional, involving local administrative departments and Shanghai and Jiangsu railway departments, and involving a number of difficult problems such as property rights, capital and technology.”Zhang Min, who has been to Pukou railway station for more than three years, can’t remember how many times.The specific plan was discussed one after another, and finally it was decided that the local government would lease it for a long time and invest in building it together with other cultural relics in the surrounding area, so as to build the pukou Railway Station historical area in accordance with the natural environment and landscape along the Yangtze River.Shanghai Bureau Group corporation said that before the start of the project, the relevant management work.In May 2021, the urban renewal project of Pukou Railway Station historic Area was officially launched.By the middle of January 2022, the rescue repair work of Pukou Railway Station and its affiliated buildings has been completed, and the repair work of workers’ dormitories and old houses around the railway station is in orderly progress.The preservation of the old site of Pukou Railway Station promoted the protection of railway relics within the jurisdiction of Shanghai Bureau Group Corporation.The third Branch of Shanghai Procuratorate deployed and guided the railway procuratorial organs of Shanghai, Jiangsu, Zhejiang and Anhui to open the “Special procuratorial supervision of cultural relics protection”, and to track and protect railway cultural relics within the jurisdiction, among which there are 13 railway cultural relics involving Jiangsu.From the completion of Pukou Railway Station to the opening of Nanjing Yangtze River Bridge in 1968, British buildings such as railway depot building, workers’ club and locomotive repair workshop were successively built around pukou Railway Station in half a century.Zhou Qi, a professor at the School of Architecture of Southeast University, said: “The original scenery of the Jinpu railway has not been changed here. The rest of the line is almost unrecognizable.”Nanjing Railway Inspection And Inspection Institute sorted out the scattered railway cultural relics around the pukou Railway Station site and found that more than 10 buildings with multiple values of culture and history, such as British buildings in the locomotive depot, had problems such as “osteoporosis”, dilapidated walls, water leakage and electricity leakage, and the protection work was urgent.In October 2020, the institute made and issued inspection suggestions to the cultural relics protection department and railway functional department of Jiangbei New Area and urged them to perform their duties according to law.”It was assessed to cost millions of yuan to repair.”Liu Yafei, assistant prosecutor of Nanjing Iron Inspection Bureau, told the reporter, “At that time, the cultural relics using units thought the building was out of use, and the huge amount of renovation funds greatly increased the operating costs of enterprises;The cultural protection department insists that the user has the obligation to fund the repair.”That stalled the restoration work.In the early winter of 2019, the prosecutor was worried, “Once these broken beams and remnants of the building were exposed to rain and snow, the whole building would be at risk of overturning, and the repair work could not wait.”TieJian on October 31, 2019, Shanghai branch, Shanghai bureau group company leadership inspection pukou railway station renovation progress, nanjing TieJian court prosecutor with they came to a few into a dangerous house pukou locomotives British architecture, detailed repair difficulties, Shanghai bureau leadership immediately said to repair funds into the annual budget,Effectively assume the social responsibility of cultural relic protection.On the one hand, Nanjing Iron Inspection Institute cooperated with the cultural protection department to study the repair plan seriously, insisted that the repair unit invited skilled old carpenters, and invited the southeast University architecture professor and suzhou ancient cultural relics repair experts on-site guidance;On the other hand, we continued to follow up the progress of fund allocation of Shanghai Bureau Group Corporation, and successively allocated more than 2 million yuan of repair funds to ensure the repair process.Railway workers are one of the earliest groups of industrial workers, leaving many revolutionary relics beside the railway line.Taking Pukou Railway Station as the starting point, prosecutors of Nanjing Railway Inspection Institute comprehensively investigated 13 railway relics in their area, including the place where jinpu railway workers threw themselves on the rails during the February 7th strike, and the Rotary school (the special name of railway primary and middle schools in China before liberation) where revolutionary fire was spread and workers’ progressive activities were held.Xinfeng Station (located in Zhenjiang), where the new Fourth Army fought the first decisive battle against Japanese aggression in The South of the Yangtze River.On the basis of comprehensive investigation and investigation, Nanjing Railway Inspection Institute made and issued inspection suggestions to nanjing Jiangbei New Area Publicity Department and Zhenjiang Cultural Heritage Bureau respectively on November 30, 2019 and June 30, 2021, urging the repair work.All parties responded quickly, and the railway department gave priority to allocating funds for renovation to support the protection of cultural relics.Local streets, villages and towns take the initiative to undertake the daily management, cleaning and maintenance of cultural relics;The cultural protection department continues to follow up the progress of the repair and supervises the completion of the repair work as scheduled.In early December 2021, the renovation of the Rotary School was completed.

It was deserted at that time.Unexpectedly, in a short period of time, the old look changed.Now when our new employees take their jobs and new party members take their vows, I will take them to have a look. These red cultural relics beside the railway line inherit the spirit of our ancestors and are an unforgettable memory for us railway people.”Wu Xiangdong, NPC deputy, deputy general manager of Shanghai Bureau Group Corporation and director of Nanjing Railway Office, said, “The railway procuratorial organ performs its duty of public interest litigation, gathers the joint efforts of local government, cultural relics department and railway department, and makes the century-old railway station ‘live’;Activating the advantage of the railway red cultural relics, building the red square, inheriting the revolutionary spirit of our ancestors, let the railway cultural relics reappear the light, effectively safeguard the public interest, worthy of praise!”(Lu Zhijian and Zhang Ya, Procuratorial Daily)
