The village of Jingtong (菁桐; Jīngtóng) marks the end of the Pingxi Branch Rail Line, and it has one of the best-preserved traditional train stations in Taiwan. With nearby coal carts, abandoned buildings strangled by roots, Japanese-era wooden houses and the old pit entrance on the hill above the station, it's a fun place to explore and take pictures. There's also some great hiking in the area.
