Anyone take the train in Taiwan? Am going on a trip am wondering what to expect.

Just from reading about it, I'm going to get a huge kick many of the trains are the same models as they have in Japan.

According to the news the Limited Express "Puyuma" sets were 5-years old and made by Nippon Sharyo so its not really suspect. What they do suspect is something on the track or maintenance issues.

>A spokesman for Taiwan Yilan District Court told Reuters the driver told his bail hearing he switched off the system himself to boost the train’s power when it had slowed down on an earlier stretch of the journey.


>Reuters was not able to reach the train driver, You Zhen-zhong, 48, for comment. He was granted bail of T$500,000 ($16,167) and barred from leaving Taiwan after being detained for the investigation.
