A bit of history :

Report by Julien Blanc (March 1996): "Wanshuiquannan-Daliuta(-Shenmu) : (visited on March 9th to 11th 1996)

Take Bus No. 16 from Baotoudong to Wanshuiquannan (1 hour!). According to railwaymen, there is still no traffic beyond there to Shenmu. I travelled on the train all the way and made the following observations :

The loco went around the train and departed with its tender first at 13:50h. The loco was then serviced in Heitanggou and the train departed as mixed train with 8 added coal wagons at 14:45. (...)
(...) According to the train guard the line from Daliuta to Shenmu and Shuoxian [probably Shuozhou, FM] is under construction, to be opened in 2 or 3 years. By this time, the 501/2 passenger will continue to Shuoxian. Shenmu-Shuoxian and further to the sea will be electrified from the beginning. A new line from Shenmu to Yan`an is also planned. "
