Initially, I visited this place for 2 1/2 days with Bernd Seilers group (www.farrail.net). A few days later, I went back there on my own for a one week and was based in the small (primitive is the right word - no shower, toilet outside) Guesthouse in Bagou, the last station before the terminus.

More details about Shibanxi/Jiayang Coal Mine you can find, if you visit this essential site (Maybe you know it already).
