Badong Station is located near Liujiashan Village (柳家山村, Liǔjiāshān Cūn), about 10 km from the main urban area of Yesanguan Town. On the planning stage, the station was referred to as Yesanguan Station (野三关站), which was a more precise description of its location. However, the station is now known as Badong Station, as it is the only railway station within Badong County. It is, however, not particularly closed to Badong County's county seat (Xinling Town), being almost 100 km drive from it on winding mountain roads (S245 and G209). (The straight-line distance, of course, is much shorter).


A number of the passenger trains running on the Yiwan Railway stop at Badong station; this amounts several trains a day both west (to Enshi, Chongqing and Chengdu) and east (to Yichang and Wuhan), as well as some going to more remote destinations, such as Beijing, Shanghai, and Guangzhou.[1]
