Tiaobingshan City is a county-level city which mainly produces coal approved by the State Council in 1982. Because it is adjacent to Faku County and Tieling City, its original name is Tiefa City, which was formally renamed Tiaobingshan City in 2002. Tiefa Coalfield has identified a coal industry reserves of 2.32 billion tons, accounting for more than one third of Liaoning's total coal. In 2000, Tiefa Coalfield entered the top ten coal mines in China.
Since the establishment of mining in 1958, the output and benefit of coal have been increasing year by year. In 1991, the output exceeded 10 million tons. Since 1997, the annual output has reached more than 15 million tons. Over the years, steam locomotives have made great contributions in the field of coal production and transportation.
However, with the development of the times, the steam locomotive is no longer the leading role in the transport industry, replaced by diesel locomotives and electric locomotives.
But the historical achievements and innovative spirit of steam locomotives can not be forgotten.
