TAIPEI, TAIWAN (TTNews) – MRT Danshui Line has been in operation since 1997. With more than a decade of history, MRT Danshui Line so far is still the fastest public transport from Taipei to Danshui, which only takes 50 minutes. The average daily number of passengers has exceeded over one million people, which is considered to be the busiest route in the MRT system. Nevertheless, most of younger generations probably don’t know the prosperous history of MRT Danshui Line. About 20 years ago before the MRT system existed, MRT Danshui Line was known as Northern Danshui Railway Line.

Around 1900, Northern Danshui Railway Line was built due to the demand for carrying cargoes during the Japanese Colonial Period. Dadaocheng Station was the earliest starting point, which was later replaced by Beimen Station, which was turned into today’s Taipei station, passing by Shuanglian, Yuanshan, Shilin, Shihpai, Beitou, Zhongyi, Guandu, Jhuwei and Danshui. Since the station was no long in use in July 1988, the bustling and crowded scenes were also followed to an end.

Most interestingly, in the past, ticketing service was not available in all the stations, and people sometimes were not allowed to get on and off. Through the files of old photos, it was quite difficult to image how people could run the place so smoothly.

Mr. Lu personally has a complete collection of train tickets of Danshui Railway Line. He indicated that the train tickets used to cost NT$15 only. However, ever since the operation of the MRT Danshui, it has been fairly helpful to the development of Danshui region by bringing a large number of tourists and a great deal of business opportunities!
