It is toilsome to catch a mid-night train. But for those late night high-speed train crew, it is their job to work in late night. During this year's Spring Festival Rush, late night high-speed trains were added to the schedule.

Zhang Li is the conductress of the train G4781. At 12:28 a.m., the train started off on time. There were not many people on the train since it was mid-night, but the conductress still had to perform standard procedures. For each stop, Zhang Li went through all the carriages to check on everything. It usually took her 20 minutes to go through all the 8 carriages of the train.

Zhang Li started to work in 1996, and she has witnessed the rapid development of railway as a stewardess in these two decades. Zhang is deeply in love with this job. From March 6 to 7, she had been working for 16 hours with 34 stops on the way. "If I say I'm not tired, that would be a lie," said Zhang Li, "but I'm really happy that I can dedicate to a job I love."
