Li Xiangqian is a diesel locomotive fitter at the Luoyang Motive Power Depot in Henan Province, central China. This is his first and only job since he started working 27 years ago. He is also known as the "doctor of trains" by his fellow workers.
Throughout his career, he has been a locomotive fitter, a problem solver, head of the "Li Xiangqian Master Studio" and founder of the "Xiangqian Foundation."
As a grassroots representative, Li Xiangqian said that he joined the Communist Party in 2007 because he wanted to have more opportunities to integrate into the team and work together with everyone to find ways to make the locomotives run faster and even better. He thinks a Party member should always be the first to take on any challenge.
