"Chickens, ducks and geese" do not have to buy tickets
Located at the intersection of Baocheng Railway and Yang'an Railway, Yangpingguan Station was built in 1956. Although it is a third-class station, it occupies a very important position in railway transportation.
Today, more than a dozen passenger trains and multiple freight trains stop here every day, taking on passenger travel and material transportation in the junction of Sichuan, Shaanxi and Gansu provinces, as well as the disassembly of trains in the three directions of Baoji, Guangyuan and Ankang.
As the main members of 81 pairs of public welfare "slow trains" across the country, the 8361/8362 passenger trains from Hanzhong to Yangpingguan and the 6063/6064 passenger trains from Baoji to Guangyuan pass through Yangpingguan Station.

Since it is not a large-scale consignment, in order to provide convenience to the villagers who go to the market, the young birds they carry do not need to buy tickets. They will be arranged to wait in the designated area after the security check. The staff will also clean and kill the waiting room and platform in time.
After getting on the train, the carrier must take care of the poultry during the whole process, and the train staff will also strengthen inspections and safety reminders, and clean the environment.

"The chicken and duck seedlings at Yangping Pass are of good variety and cheap, and it’s less than 10 yuan to take the train back and forth. In these years, every time I take the train, the railway staff has helped to send the chicken and duck seedlings on the train with a trolley. Dirty and not too tired. My small business is now going smoothly, and the station has been a great help!" Huang Yuxue, a tourist who lives in Xiaoyushan Village, Yangpingguan Town, is a frequent visitor to the station. He is in his 50s this year. Poultry seedlings will be collected in surrounding villages.
The 72-year-old Uncle Jiang’s home is about two kilometers away from the station.
He said excitedly: "In recent years, thanks to this train, I have made money by going to the market and selling vegetables. I don't have to go out to work, and my days have become more prosperous!"
Du Qingfang, who lives in Qinghe Village, Yangpingguan Town, is 48 years old this year. She has more than a dozen native chickens and grows a few border vegetables. She often carries a heavy basket on her back and a large bamboo basket on her arm. Seasonal cherries, peaches and other fruits are sold in Hanzhong, Lueyang and other places.
