Tummy filled, and since we are in the area, we popped by the famous Sheng Xing Railway Station. Driving there wass pretty easy as we followed a one straight countryside inner road.
If you are travelling there by public transport, just take a train to Sanyi train station (三義￼车站) and grab a taxi to bring you to Shengxing Railway Station directly.
Above photo is the start of the Sheng Xing railway station house, which is also the beginning of the Sanyi Old Street. Any old street in Taiwan will definitely be lined with shops and eateries, so this street is no exception. Perhaps I’m lazy or because it looks like any other old street in Taiwan, I skipped walking around and head straight to view this old abandon railway track.
Sheng Xing Station was completed in 1906. It was once the highest train station in Taiwan at an altitude of over 402 meters. You can observe the fine carpentry works of the Japanese during that era where the railway station was built entirely of wood in Japanese style
