From TTNews Reporter Huang Po-yung Photoed by Hung Jung Chiayi County— Used to be a sugar factory, Chiayi Garlic Sugar Factory (嘉義蒜頭糖廠) became a culture park. Built when Japanese ruled Taiwan (AD 1906), it was one of the important sugar factories. Because of the establishment of highways and cities, it was close in 2001. For not losing the historic relics in the factory, this sugar factory was transformed to the Jhecheng Culture Park (蔗埕文化園區) in 2002. In the Jhecheng Culture Park (蔗埕文化園區), there are five areas including sugar industry, railway, architecture, truck, and arts. It is like a family, industry, or culture trip to travel in the Jhecheng Culture Park (蔗埕文化園區). Up to now, taking train is available in the park. You can also take on the 5km/h Taisugar Truck, see the Wu-fen Cart (五分車), sugar tank cart, warning tower, air-raid shelter, Japanese wood station, sugar factory, and so on. Moreover, transported back from Japan, the steam locomotive #650 (650型蒸氣老火車頭) is targeted by the railway fans. Mr. Su, the railway expert, mentioned that the Wu-fen Cart (五分車) is named because its gauge is a half of standard gauge, 1435mm. The early Hualien & Taitung Railway, Ali Mt. Railway and others have narrow gauges the same as Wu-fen Cart’s.
