Alishan Railway to resume its normal operations Wednesday
The section of the Alishan Forest Railway between Chiayi and Fenchihu is scheduled to return to normal on Wednesday as the line recovers from damage created by Typhoon Soudelor, the Taiwan Railways Administration (TRA) said Monday.
Several parts of the forest railway were obstructed by fallen tree branches and rocks during the typhoon, forcing the TRA to suspend service on the popular tourist rail line.
Except the section between Chiayi and Fenchihu, the other part of the tourist railway was back to normal operations on Monday.
The TRA said railway maintenance is expected to be completed by Tuesday, and the line will resume normal operations on Wednesday.
Meanwhile, the Maokong Gondola system in Taipei is scheduled to resume operations on Aug. 15, Taipei Rapid Transit Corporation (TRTC) said.
