Some pictures of the very recently opened Nangang station, taken December 27.



The new station includes a significant amount of public art compared to existing metro stations.

I think the train looks pretty boring too, I could live with a ugly livery if the train was nicer. I wish they opted a train look instead of subway. I'd like to see a top speed of beyond 90km/hr being done on the airport express.

I was recently on the EMU700 and really liked it. Minus the annoying stupid announcements of "Door open" when the door was about to open. Is a simple beep not enough?

The Taroko express is great, the push pull tzu chiangs have already deterioated are terrible, I prefer the older tzu chiangs made in Japan, most of if not all are diesel so they are a bit noisy, but at least the passenger cabins are built much better. Has anyone been on the EMU1200, the most hideous looking tzu chiang?

An interesting note, I went on the pingxi line a few weeks ago, and they use a diesel tzu chiang that they modified for it I believe.

Emu 800

EMU 800



Japan-Taiwan joint venture wins order for 296 train cars in Taiwan
Sunday 16th January, 03:51 AM JST

NAGOYA —
Japanese rail car manufacturer Nippon Sharyo Ltd and trading house Sumitomo Corp said that a Taiwanese train car maker they have jointly set up with local partners has won an order for 296 commuter train cars from the Taiwan Railways Administration.

Under the 44 billion yen deal, the joint venture Taiwan Rolling Stock Co, which was set up in 2002, plans to deliver the cars from 2012 through 2015, the Japanese firms said.

The low-floor train cars will run in Taipei’s suburban areas and on lines connecting between major cities in Taiwan at a speed of up to 130 kilometers per hour.

East Coast Tilting Trains - New Taroko

New Taidong Express



Sumitomo and Nippon Sharyo wins train sets supply deal in Taiwan

Monday, 10 Jan 2011 Japanese suppliers Sumitomo Corporation and Nippon Sharyo confirmed on January 6th 2011 that they had signed a TWD 10.6 billion contract to supply Taiwan Railway Administration with 17 inter city tilting train sets (136 rail cars) capable of operation at 150 kilometers per hour.

Under the deal agreed on December 31st 2010, the eight car EMUs are due to be delivered in 2012-14 for use on Taroko Express services between Taipei and Hualien on TRA's 1.067 mm gauge east coast route. The aluminium bodied trains will feature wheelchair access, luggage and bicycle spaces and onboard vending machines.

The east coast line was electrified at 25 kV 60 Hz in 2003, and TRA introduced its first tilting trains in April 2007, helping to shorten journey times and making rail more competitive with the island's improved roads.

TRA acquired an initial build of six 8 car tilting train sets from Marubeni and Hitachi to launch the Taroko Express services. The railway had planned to exercise an option for a further 48 vehicles in 2009, but called new tenders after it failed to agree terms with the suppliers because of changing exchange rates. Three rounds of bidding were held in the new competition, but most bidders were reportedly unable to meet TRA's requirements in terms of price and delivery schedule.

Nice find Coyett! I have to say I am impressed by both the EMU800 and the new tilting trains. The EMU800 looks FAR better than the hideous EMU700. Why can't they make the airport express train look that good?!! Finally there is some life at TRA.
