Between June 5–9, 2010, to promote tourism, the Former Mountain Line resumed service between Tai'an and Sanyi station after a twelve-year hiatus, using a steam locomotive numbered CK124. A station was chosen to be built here due to its proximity to the Longteng Bridge. However, due to the slope of the station being too steep, the station was removed in 2011.[1][2]
