A 376-meter railway built in 1914 and 1915 was discovered in a factory of Hengyang,  Xiaoxiang Morning Post reported on Sunday. The railway, still in use, is a connection section from the factory to the Hunan-Guangxi railway. It is also the first railway in the city. The traditional Chinese characters can be clearly seen inside the rail, showing the production unit and date.
