There is the stations called Wudu to the fifth of Chilung direction from Taipei on TRA. Only the local train and several expresses are the small station where it stops. However, this station was a bigger station than now until 1970's. There is a coal mine in here and was handling the freight of coal. It is an interesting case especially, at that time the human power railway was still remaining. The railroad by the human power was used widely in Taiwan as easy traffic means. However, Taiwan accomplished economic growth. There is not a coal mine here now. The place that was coal mine and human powered railway was built many suburbs apartment. There became the commuting area of big city Taipei. Now many people did not know that there was a human powered railway in this place.
