I had occasion to ride the THSR again, and of course, I took more photos.
Look closely – the cars are getting dirty.
I like the HSR a lot, but its alreay looking ratty on the outside. Airlines know that clean planes fly more efficiently, so why has a fair amount of dirt been allowed to build up on these cars?
Remember when I mentioned that my GPS had several stations marked on the base map, but didn’t exist? Here is one of them:
The dirt parking lot is the Yuanlin station. It looks as if the land has been allocated but the station has not been built yet. There is a similar cleared area on the opposite side of the track. This view faces east.
And this is the Chuanghua station. Unlike Yuanlin, it doen’t look like any land has been secured for the station. I’ll check out more of these phantom stations as I take more trips on the THSR.
