Nr 23: one of the first locomotives on the Alishan Mountain Railway. The railway was originally built in the 1900s by the Japanese to transport lumber, but eventually evolved into a scenic tourist route. It is one of three mountains railways in the world. In a matter of hours, the route travels through the tropical zone to the sub-tropical, to the temperate, and eventually ends up in frigid climate zone.
