一線九驛

新竹內灣支線是台灣第一也是全國僅存仍完整運行的鐵道支線,成為見證台灣從農耕、工礦業發展到高科技產業的重要運輸線。內灣支線全長27.9公里,途經「竹中」、「上員」、「榮華」、「竹東」、「橫山」、「九讚頭」、「合興」、「富貴」及「內灣」各站點,並稱「一線九驛」。沿線穿過四個山洞、二座鐵橋,爬山穿嶺過溪,具有豐富的自然景觀風貌。至今各車站仍保有當年的建築及地景風格,並保留通車紀念碑,補充火車蒸氣鍋爐用水的火車加水站、採礦遺址等。

早期因應產業發展任務及需求,用來運送煤礦、石灰石、矽砂及香杉、赤柯、檜木樟樹等珍貴木材,也為內灣支線留下大量豐富的煤礦、伐木工業遺址,有特殊椼架的倉庫、日式古典的鐵道宿舍簇群,簡單安靜但耐人尋味的招呼站,百年老樟樹與舊時貨物集散的廣場共生。近年來在新竹縣政府與台鐵局的合作下,透過整體九點一線的閒置空間再生,結合以漫畫故事行銷為包裝亮點的手法,打造台灣漫畫夢工場/一線九驛成為台灣國際光魅力新景點!

Hsinchu’s Neiwan Branch Line is the last operational branch line in Taiwan. It served as an important transportation artery during Taiwan’s agricultural, industrial and mining, and high-tech industry phases. The Neiwan Branch is 27.9 km long and passes through the stops of “Jhujhong", “Shangyuan", “Ronghua", “Jhudong", “Hengshan", “Jiuzantou", “Hexing", “Fugui" and “Neiwan" along the way, giving it the name of “One Line, Nine Stations". The line passes through four tunnels and two railway bridges as well as over mountains and rivers with extensive natural scenery along the way. All of the stations retain their original buildings and surroundings. The commissioning memorials, water tanks that used to supply the steam train boilers and mining sites remain as well.

In the early years, industrial development saw the line used to transport coal, lime and silica as well as precious timber such as incense cedar, glaucous oak, cypress and camphor. This left extensive races of coal mining and logging operations along the Neiwan branch such as warehouses with special shelving, traditional Japanese railway dormitories and quiet, basic yet different train stops. Century-old camphor tree has now become a part of what used to be the cargo yard. In recent years, the Hsinchu County Government has collaborated with the Taiwan Railway Administration to revitalize the abandoned spaces along the nine stops on one line. Using comics as packaging, Taiwan Comics Dream Factory/9 Stations on 1 Line was crafted to become an attractive new international tourism destination in Taiwan!
