I was surprised to see yet another old steam locomotive on display in the square at the beginning of Zhongzheng Road. The Taiwanese really like their old trains as this was the 6th one that i had seen. This particular one was the BK-20, which was manufactured in England and many were used on the Japanese railway system. Tamsui was served by the railway line from 1901 to 1988 before the MRT was constructed. At the time of my visit the engine was cordoned off but i don't know if it is always like this, maybe to prevent people from climbing on it.
