Taichung (Chinese: 臺中; pinyin: Táizhōng) is a railway station in Taichung, Taiwan served by Taiwan Railways Administration. It is served by all TRA services along the route.

History[edit]

Former Taichung station building

The station was originally constructed in 1905 and started its operation in 1908. On 16 October 2016, the elevated station was inaugurated in which the ground-level station was shut down. The first train that arrived at the elevated station was at 6:28 a.m. The ceremony was attended by President Tsai Ing-wen and Transportation and Communication Minister Hochen Tan.[7]

Overview[edit]

The old station has one side platform and one island platform. The architecture dates from the era of Japanese rule, and is classified as a National Tier 2 Historic Site. The now-defunct Taiwan Sugar Railways' Zhong-Zhuo line once stopped at the station.

New station layout planned has one side platform and two island platform, but currently one side platform and one island platform used same as ground old station with reversed numbering.
