Ancient locomotive dates from early days of rail
Aug 2020
This steam locomotive pre-dates the Japanese colonial era (1895-1945). It's very old -- some 150 years old. It's in surprisingly good condition for its age. It is housed in 2-28 Park, near the Taipei Main Train Station

Back to the earliest days of rail
Aug 2020
Most technological innov tions in Taiwan date from the Japanese colonial era (1895-1945) but these ancient locos predate that, from the 19th late century. They are housed in a perspex shelter, in a corner of 2-28 Peace Park They are well preserved, and well worth a detour if you are visiting the park. The locos are some 150 years old.

Ancient locomotives go back a long way
Jan 2020
These two engines, one of German manufacture and the other of English manufacture, go back to the very early days of Taiwan's railways. One loco was built in 1871 and the other in 1887 -- that's around 150 years ago. The engines are in a transparent structure, no doubt to protect them from the effects of the elements. The locos are in a corner of 2-28 Peace Park. As something of a train buff, I found these primitive but hardy workhorses of the rails a monument to mankind's mechanical ingenuity.

Historic engines
Sep 2019 • Solo
Two engines from Japan dating back to the beginning of Taiwan's railways. One was the first engine on Taiwan, the other the oldest. Encased in glass and covered, so no access and hard to view. Worth stopping by only if you are nearby or a train buff.

Under glass
Sep 2019 • Solo
Only a couple of old locomotives located in a corner of 228 Peace Memorial Park. Has a slightly interesting information panel explaining their history. Nothing really special to say the least, and I wouldn't make a special trip to come here just to see this. It would probably serve a larger purpose if they took it out from under glass and let the kids play on them.

Next to train station

This is a steam locomotive and it is situated next to Taiwan Main, that is the train station. It is just outside the east entrance. Well preserved and I am sure advertising the museum
