Thank you for providing such a great information.
I have never heard Marine Museum Line project,
what is the name of the project in Chinese?

So Taichung is going to be changing their train station? Are there any pictures?

I really wish they would get a move on the Subway system. Traffic down here in Taichung is really bad.

Dongshan TRA Station (Yilan)


The construction of the platforms and track work has been completed. The only work remaining is the renovation of the existing ground level ticketing facilities. I'm really quite fond of this little project. Hopefully, the elevated stations in Taichung and Yuanlin will be built to the same standard.

Roger W has a nice pic of the progress over at Flickr. http://www.flickr.com/photos/rogermf...21073/sizes/o/

I just think that Taichung's transportation infostructure is so messed up. I dont understand why it has taken and is taking so long to get an MRT. Traffic is bad. We only have one freeway and expressway on the west side. Which are next to each other. The East side of Taichung is bad. The only way major road is Taichung Harbor Road. A nightmare.

Anyways, I have been hearing about an MRT being built in this city for over 10 years. Nothing has happened. I will believe it when I see it.

Do any of y'all think that they will extend the THSR from Nangang to Yilan?
It would be nice if they could and then down the east side connecting back to Kaouhsing.

Construction of Taichung MRT to start next year

After years of planning, construction of Taichung's Mass Rapid Transit system or MRT is finally slated to begin. On Saturday, the Ministry of Transportation and Communication (MOTC) signed an agreement with Taichung City to start construction on the first MRT line in Taichung next year. The line is scheduled to be completed in 2015.

The design and construction of the Taichung MRT will be supervised by Taipei City’s Department of Rapid Transport Systems.

No, I don't think this will ever happen. The east coast of Taiwan doesn't have the population to support it. The government plan to order another eight sets of Taroko trains to serve the route to Hualien seems like a much more practical solution. Everyone loves high speed rail, but to my mind the most interesting journeys are actually the local non-electrified lines.

THSRC to increase runs, buy new cars: Ou Chin-der

PASSENGER VOLUME: At present, the system carries an average of 90,000 passengers per day, with a train capacity between 45 percent and 47 percent

STAFF WRITER, WITH CNA
Saturday, Nov 22, 2008, Page 4
The high-speed rail system will increase the number of scheduled runs and purchase new trains next year to cope with increasing passenger volume, Taiwan High Speed Rail Corp (THSRC) executive director Ou Chin-der (歐晉德) said on Thursday.

THSRC would increase the number of scheduled trains after Lunar New Year, which falls on Jan. 26, as the system’s passenger capacity after the holiday was expected to exceed 50 percent, Ou said.

The exact number of additional runs would be announced at a later date, he said.

At present, the system carries an average of 90,000 passengers per day, with a train capacity between 45 percent and 47 percent.

The system has a total of 30 trains that operate a maximum of 176 two-way runs per day, Ou said, adding that the ceiling was very likely to be reached at the end of next year.

Passenger volume was expected to have reached between 140,000 and 150,000 per day by that time, with a possible maximum volume of 176,000, and was likely to hit 200,000 during peak hours in 2010, he said.

To cope with the continuous increase in passenger volume, THSRC would buy between six and 12 new trains from Japan next year.

THSRC would also consider the possibility of working with Taiwanese companies on the interior design of the trains if sufficiently skilled local designers could be found, Ou said, adding that the new trains would start operating in 2011.

The new trains would be part of a long-term THSRC purchase project that was being carried out in several phases with the aim of increasing the number of trains to 54 by 2033, Ou said.

The system would also focus on attracting passengers by providing better quality service rather than by offering more discounts, as some tickets were already discounted to the tune of 35 percent, Ou said.

Further price cuts would undermine THSRC’s financial management as well as endanger the bus transport industry, the THSRC executive said.

I wonder what the chances are of an upgrade to the Kawasaki efSET?

New 350km/h High-speed Train efSET aiming at the Global Market

http://www.khi.co.jp/ba/2008data/ba_c3080911_1.html

Tokyo, September 11, 2008 — Kawasaki Heavy Industries, Ltd. announced today that it has decided to set out the development of the new high-speed train efSET*. This is Kawasaki’s autonomous new high-speed train development project that has an eye to the global market and is a completely new initiative when compared to its previous job-to-job rail car development projects carried out both home and abroad. Kawasaki is becoming the first-ever Japanese rail car maker to introduce a self-developed high-speed train to the global market.

Kawasaki’s new high-speed train efSET which is currently under development will achieve a service speed of 350km/h and, simultaneously, this innovative vehicle contains the technologies, which Kawasaki has developed through the designing of a number of high-speed trains, that improve the level of passenger comfort and reduce the loads on neighboring environments. The development is expected to be completed by the end of March 2010.

Kawasaki is a rail car maker with a longstanding history of designing and manufacturing of Shinkansen trains, ranging from the Series 0 Shinkansen trains which came into service in 1964 up to state-of-the-art Shinkansen trains, with an abundance of outstanding performances and expertise involving high-speed train design and manufacturing. For example, Kawasaki supplied the Series 700T trains to the Taiwan High Speed Rail in 2004 and the CRH2 trains to the Ministry of Railway, China in 2006. Based on the sound performance of these trains, Kawasaki has been able to build a strong platform in the Asian high-speed train market.

The importance of rail cars have been reviewed in recent years on a global basis as they are capable of providing mass transport with a smaller amount of greenhouse-gas emissions. A number of countries including the United States, Brazil, Russia, India and Vietnam are currently carrying forward new and specific construction plans and, as a result, approximately 10,000km express railway tracks are expected to be newly built in the next twenty years on a global scale. In response, the demand for express trains will likely to increase.


If you look at the countries that Kawasaki is targeting you'll notice that in the near term only China and Taiwan are in a position to purchase rolling stock. Considering THSRC has already indicated they will be purchasing new trains from Kawasaki it would seem to be in their interest to sell them the efSET instead of an upgraded T700. THSRC gets a more advanced train and Kawasaki establishes a platform to demonstrate the advantages of their product.

Railway welcomes first 'green' station

Central News Agency
http://www.etaiwannews.com/etn/news_...&lang=eng_news

Taiwan's railway system has inaugurated its first "green" station, which will provide transportation services with state-of-the-art, eco-friendly design and technologies, senior administrators said yesterday. At a ceremony to celebrate the inauguration of the renovated Dalin Station in the southern county of Chiayi, Taiwan Railways Administration Director-General Frank Fan praised the station as a "pastiche of history and modernity."
The station's old building, which was preserved in the renovation project, was built in 1903 under Japanese colonial rule, while the new "green" service complex is equipped with all kinds of eco-friendly technology.

Lauding it as "the most novel, most beautiful, most user-friendly" station among the 200 or so train stations in Taiwan, Fan said the complex is a 100-percent "green building" that not only fully relies on natural ventilation and natural light, but also recycles rainwater and converts sunlight into electricity. Meanwhile, Fan continued, to reduce the pollution caused by the station itself and railway operations, the station is also equipped with noise reducing units and air purifiers.
