Yingge Train Station
“Yingge Station” used to be the coal transfer hub in the past. Coal produced in Sanxia were loaded here and transported to other areas. The valuable relics of the coal transporting platform preserved until today can be seen in the station.This section of “Yingge Station” was used to allow coal to be loaded directly onto freighters, and is the only surviving relic in Taiwan.
The existence of the Diaoshan Trail can be traced back to 1898, when gold was discovered in the rivers and creeks. The subsequent discovery of gold mine outcrops attracted many curious miners. Back during the mining boom of Shuinandong, Jinguashi, and Jiufen, the Diaoshan Trail was used frequently. With this background information, an unresolved legend of the woeful Fruitless Grave was created on the Diaoshan Trail. The Fruitless Grave is located closer to the exit of the trail, with the inscription on the stone monument dating it back to 1902.
