Wulai Scenic Train
|Locale||Wulai, New Taipei, Taiwan|
|Distance travelled||1.6 km|
The rail cart was originally designed by the Japanese government in 1928 to transport timber, logging tools, tea and passengers. After a highway was completed in 1951, most of the railway sections were dismantled except the 1.6 km section. However, with the declining timber and logging industries, the vehicle was transformed to transport tourists. In 2015, the railway was closed due to damage caused by Typhoon Soudelor in which 120 meters of section was completely destroyed. It was reopened on 26 August 2017 after almost two years of reconstruction work.
Each cart can accommodate up to 10 passengers.
