Traveling by train is one of the most comfortable modes of transport. I was always curious about those smaller stations with low passenger traffic. Once, I decided not to ponder anymore and explore one of the beautiful and secluded stations!
The Pingxi line starts from Sandiaoling Station and consists of Dahua, Shifen, Wanggu, Lingjiao, Pingxi, and Jingtong stations. Pingxi and Jingtong are always crowded with tourists during holidays and weekends. After a brief visit to Pingxi and Jingtong, I chose to visit a more secluded station for a change.
Lingjiao is more serene and peaceful as there are less visitors. One should visit the unpretentious old street and the squarish hillside platforms. The platforms, railway tracks, and residential homes are lined up in parallel, forming a beautiful arc shape when a train reaches Lingjiao. One can catch a glimpse of this scenic view standing amongst the peaceful village. One can also take a leisurely stroll to explore the Lingjiao waterfalls, reveling in the sights of the silk-like water free falling from the valley above. The resulting water mist makes one feel more refreshed and alert.
APD Transport Tips

Train：Take the North-Link Line to Houtong Station, switch to Pingxi Line and alight at Lingjiao Station. Take a short walk, and you’ll arrive at Lingjiao waterfalls.

Back in the 1990s, Gilbert Blecken was a big music fan and wrote for his own small music fanzine. He would interview bands in between sound checks and take photographs of them. He was never a professional photographer or worked for a company; he simply did it for his fanzine. Twenty years on, Gilbert’s photographs have matured into an amazing documentation of some of the biggest music icons of that era. We caught up with Gilbert to ask him about these photographs and the fascinating story behind them.
