Yes, it is under the restoration construction, but it is still in operation for train service.

You can take a train to from Ulan Bator to Beijing, and then take a connecting train from Beijing to Datong.

Hey Fendi,

thanks for the prompt reply. Very helpful.

I found another travel agency who told me they can arrange tickets from Ulan Bator to Jining. There I can switch to a connecting train to Datong.

I think that spares me some kilometers compared to going to Beijing first :)

Thanks again

there are 2 DT Railway Stations?
Railway Station, 4 Zhanqian Street, and
Railway Station, 109 National Road

Which one do we take the bus no 4. from?

I never heard about there are train tickets available from Ulan Bator to jining, but to Beijing. I'm fraid it's a fraud, you need be careful with that.

The best choice for you is to take a train to DT with a transit in Beijing.

No. DT Railway Station is located at No.4, Zhanqian Street.
Pingwang Station is located at No.109 National Road. You need to take bus no.4 at the first address.
