After the South Link Line was open to vehicular traffic, the volume of freight and passengers was too large more than what Taitung old station could handle. Thus it was faced with the fate of abolishment as the new station was under construction. In order to preserve the significantly meaningful old railway over the past 80 years, Taitung Railway Art Village is thus established to keep memories of railway culture. This art village maintains the original appearance of the railway bureau at that time, having the nation’s only triangle turnaround loop and Kuanghua Express. In the porch, there are modern installation artistic works and old-fashioned railroad reflecting each other. Rail enthusiasts and photography lovers shall never miss here.

    Old station

    The site of the old Taitung railway station is transformed into a park. Now there is no train running, but there is a display of an old train. Even if you are not a lover of railways, it is just interesting.

    Old typical station with a japan era train rotting away. Did a walkaround, but nothing there to give it a good review.

    Taitung Railway Art Village is an area where the older rail station used to be converted into a nice green space with a few art works scattered and surrounded by some hip looking bars and restaurants along with a performance space. There wasn’t much going on during the weekday early afternoon but there is a handful of photogenic spots to see while waiting for the bus. As Taitung has an abundance of open green spaces, there are better spots to relax at.

    Right behind the bus station. The Showtime Plaza mall is just across the road. Basically what is left of the old railway station. Where we had a brief walk before moving over to the neighbouring Tiehua Music Village which is more interesting. You can view an old train and some rail tracks. When we were there, many of the buiidings and sheds seemed to be undergoing repairs.
