It was built between 1991 and 1995. The line is some 40 km long and runs through a sometimes hilly area. The steepest gradient is 6 per thousand only. However, the QJs have to work hard with the loaded trains (chimney first).
The mine bureau owns 4 QJ, we saw QJ 2315 and 2440 in use. There are six pairs of freight trains daily, half/half daylight/night time. The loco shed is in Lijiazi. This place is difficult to find but a a landmark you can use the branch line of the CNR to the north. Just east of the overbridge of this branch you find a road to the south. This road leads you to the interlink station of the mine railway with the CNR. From there you have to use a unpaved way parallel to the line to the west. After two kilometres you'll reach Lijiazi.
