We live in a beautiful place, there are mountains and the ocean, there is a beautiful city, this place called Formosa (Taiwan).
This used to be the busiest and the most important transit point for the Houtong coal mine. The tranquil rural scenery has been preserved here. This station is also one of the very few stations that sell Edmondson railway tickets in Taiwan. The scene where A-Dan leads her fellow performers in a happy dance (in the Taiwanese film, ‘Bad Girls’) was filmed at the square in front of the Houtong Station.
In the past, in order to transport coal via railway, the Coal Transportation Bridge was built. It runs across the Keelung River, connecting the Rueisan Coal Mine and the Houtong Quarry. Although the bridge has been refurbished several times, the stone bridge piers built during the Japanese colonial era are kept on site. This is where the leading actor and actress had their romantic dates in the film ‘Bad Girls’. It is recommended that visitors visit the Rueisan Coal Minet before visiting the Coal Transportation Bridge.
